For the past three months or so, the online marketing industry has taken on a big shift in market interest. Social Media is becoming a topic of conversation in every search marketing blog. Everyone talks, everyone listens.
SEO still remains a mystery to most, but much better understood now by many. Blogs and forums, as well as the growing market of search engine industry conferences have given many people many answers to strategies and techniques on current SEO tactics.
The market also shifted with online marketers in the growing success and interest of Pay-Per-Click. Adwords became the new Myspace for us marketers; if you weren’t in, you were out!
You mean, I can set-up a campaign and drive traffic to my website by paying for a click and not having to wait around 2-3 months for my site to be optimized? It had success written all over it, and not only for marketers, but also for users. Much blogging has been done in the past 3-5 months on the quality score implemented by the engines, but not so much strategy wise.
Many marketers and agencies are focusing on Social Media and how to use these sites to generate traffic & buzz about a product or brand itself. Blogs are becoming the MAIN source to learn how to market in the social space and design strategies. Where there’s demand, there’s supply. Social Media is blogged more often now than SEM and SEO put together.
In the past 3 months, 641.88 social media post per day, 278.31 search engine marketing post per day, and 242.77 search engine optimization post per day.
