Gaming is a Big Influence
16© Coppervine BV 2009 The entertainment landscape is changing Video games are poised to "eclipse" all other forms of entertainment, according to Activision games studio boss Mike Griffith. BBC News online 10 January 2009: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/7821612.stm "Movies, recorded music and TV - these are all stagnating or contracting entertainment sectors."
17© Coppervine BV 2009 Video Game Influences on Online Marketing Source: http://www.computerworld.com/action/article.do?command=viewArticleBasic&articleId=9079980http://www.computerworld.com/action/article.do?command=viewArticleBasic&articleId=9079980 Websites are using game challenges, leader boards, competitions, points and rewards to keep their online users engaged with what they are selling. Much of the success of Facebook comes from its functioning as "the ultimate trophy room" where users can one-up other members based on the number of friends they have or how many games they have won. Gaming tactics tap into the fundamental human need for accomplishment. Bunchball has a demo application on Facebook that provides display icons for people as a reward for playing games. The biggest request from users of that application is for more types of trophy icons.
18© Coppervine BV 2009 Gaming for Engagement: “The Office” Contest In 2007, NBC launched a website for Dunder Mifflin, the fictitious company in the TV show The Office. (http://www.dundermifflininfinity.com/) Fans of the show can sign up to become Dunder Mifflin employees and socialize with other “employees”. Content is user-generated. NBC sets competitions to produce a particular type of content and the users are “rewarded” for creating the content, with the best (as voted on by the community) given positions on the leaderboard on the homepage. NBC is paying their users virtual currency to do real work, and create the content that drives the site. Source: www.bunchball.com

Online Reputation Management
21© Coppervine BV 2009 When people Google you, what’s the first thing they see?
22© Coppervine BV 2009 Example: Ford Motor Company Ford has a Social Media department. http://www.fordvehicles.com/thefordstory/ and http://ford.digitalsnippets.com/ http://www.fordvehicles.com/thefordstory/ A Digital Snippet may take the form of copy, photos, video or audio that is optimized for the Internet and easily reposted on any website
There’s a lot of stuff out there on the web. Search helps people find what they are looking for. Search Engine Marketing can help you get found.
Search Engine Marketing
25© Coppervine BV 2009 Search Engine Marketing (SEM) SEM is one of the most important sources of online traffic and sales. SEM covers – Search Engine Optimization (getting traffic from the free (also called “organic”) search results – Search Engine Advertising (advertising in the “Sponsored Links” section of search engines such as Google). SEM offers the one of the lowest costs per sale of online marketing activities PAID NOT PAID Get traffic and sales from search engines such as Google. People are searching because they are actively interested in your products.
Search Engine Optimisation
27© Coppervine BV 2009 How Search Engines Work They read a page and identify content & links to other pages. They store text content in their “index” For most links that they have found, they visit those pages and repeat the process When a user searches, the search engine decides on the results by looking in the index for pages that fit the query The search engine ranks the pages based on relevance to the user’s query – Google considers more than a hundred “signals” Page content Popularity, as shown by the number and quality of links to the page Other pages on the same website Age of the website Relationships between this website & others For each listing, the search engine displays a title, a descriptive “snippet” and a URL
28© Coppervine BV 2009 Your Influence on the Google Listings You can influence the way your Google listings appear Bagels & Beans wrote this Title Bagels & Beans wrote this Description Source code:
29© Coppervine BV 2009 Like Choosing a Book What do you look at when choosing a book from the library or bookstore? Google’s selection process is similar. Example: “Italian Renaissance Architecture”
30© Coppervine BV 2009 SEO in a Nutshell Getting your website to appear high in the search results so that your target customers will visit it Tell the search engines that your pages have something important to say about your desired search terms Encourage others (especially reputable websites that are considered authorities in your field) to recommend your website by linking to it Unique, engaging content is the ideal way. People should be motivated to spontaneously share your website with friends & colleagues NOTES: Make sure you are targeting the right search terms to attract your desired visitors Troubleshoot any technical problems keeping Google from understanding what you are saying
31© Coppervine BV 2009 What does a search engine understand? Look at the Google cache – “text-only” version\ Random example: http://www.springtime.nl
32© Coppervine BV 2009 Webpage Content Basics Each page should be unique, with something important to say about just a few search terms. HTML text matters most to search engines, because it lets them understand the significance of the content. Text in images can’t be seen by Google Text in Flash can be seen by Google when it decides it’s worth the trouble. tag should be unique and contain the relevant keyword(s) Description metatag should be unique and contain the relevant keyword(s) It should also inspire the searcher to click when seeing this description in the Google search results
33© Coppervine BV 2009 Google Page Rank is a clue Try not to obsess over it. Focus instead on your website’s content. However, it can indicate technical problems. Google.com has a PageRank of 10/10 Het Parool has a PageRank of 7/10 PageRank = 0/10 PageRank = Grey Bar (PR not yet assigned) Grey Bar can indicate possible technical problems:

37© Coppervine BV 2009 Content Network Picture Google technology places your ad on the most relevant content pages Your customers see your ad when they visit relevant pages in the Google Network (websites that display Google ads).
38© Coppervine BV 2009 Google Adwords Keyword Tool https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal Get an idea of keyword search volume on Google (plus Google’s search partners) for your desired country & language.
