Search Engine Optimization – Are you wasting your time?

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a marketing strategy based on the way Internet users view search results. Similar to print advertisements, studies show that a user will scan their search results from left to right, top to bottom. The theory is that links placed first, or highest on the list will get the most hits. Therefore, SEO focuses on editing the content, keywords, and HTML coding of a website to boost its relevance to specific search terms in order to achieve a higher ranking within search results.

Rewards for Location based apps

Location based applications are a great marketing tool, and more and more vendors are getting a piece of the market. I recently came across Checkpoints: “the app that pays you back.” The idea is simple, go to various stores and check in to get loyalty points. Get bonus points when you scan specific products. And redeem your points for prizes, gifts and what not.

PDF Search Engine Optimization

Since my last post on new sales tools, I’ve received some comments about the value of PDFs over interactive portable documents – primarily the value derived from search engines ability to index PDFs. The point is that if you place your marketing collaterals online (such as brochures, datasheets, beat sheets, whitepapers and fast track papers) then you want these to be indexed by search engines as well.
