1 Topics in Technology and Marketing The Awesomeness That Is Google Part II

2 What Google Means To You Google is the Worlds preeminent resource for finding content Especially content for products and services Where do people go when they are need a product or service? The Yellow Pages??? They Google (a verb as well as a proper noun)

3 What Google Means To You If 16% visit store first... then 84% research online before purchasing!

4 Googles Marketing Revolution A top Google listing delivers streams of potential customers – for FREE Any business – of any size – can be top listed and outperform much larger competitors Money doesn't matter – you can't buy your way to the top Your name doesn't matter – listings are not in alphabetical order All it takes is content Any business can create content

5 The Unending SEO War Google develops improved ways of matching content with queries Search engine marketers learn to game the system Link farms (e.g. a website with pages containing nothing but links, typically requiring a fee to be listed) Keyword stuffing (e.g. content where targeted keywords appear with unnaturally high density) Invisible content (e.g. text color same as background color)

6 The Unending SEO War The quality of content matching declines – a strategic threat to Google. The high quality of content match is the reason for Google's high market share High market share determines the value of Google's advertising sales – which represent 99% of its revenue

7 The Unending SEO War Google develops improved ways of matching content with queries Assigning a value to backlinks based upon the PageRank of the linking site and the relevance of the linking site to the backlinked page Backlink from TonysTires.com (PageRank=0) ~ low value Backlink from TonysTires.com to RitasFlowers.com ~ low value Backlink from FTD.com (PageRank=7) ~ high value Backlink from FTD.com to RitasFlowers.com ~ high value

8 The Unending SEO War Google develops improved ways of matching content with queries Establishing acceptable ranges for keyword density, penalizing pages with too many occurrences of the keyword phrase Checking the contrast between page background color and text color, and penalizing pages where the lack of contrast makes it difficult to read Search engine marketers learn to game the system, and the game begins anew
