Future Proofing your Search Marketing Strategies

I’ve just read a great document by Mike Grehan of http://www.acronym.com about the future of Search Engine Marketing, you must read it. Mike Grehan is the bestselling author of the internationally acclaimed Search Engine Marketing: The Essential Best Practice Guide.

On this document: “New Signals to Search Engines – Future Proofing your Search Marketing Strategy” Mike Grehan states the need for us SEO’s to become aware of placing a much larger emphasis on optimizing a range of file types, from PDFs to images to audio/visual content.

I’ve found 2 important aspects mentioned by Mike Grehan on this document:

1. Search results will be heavily influenced by end users, such as geographic location, time of day, previous searching history and peer group preference…, as Mike Grehan says: “Signals from end users who previously couldn’t vote for content via links from web pages are now able to vote for content with their clicks, bookmarks, tags and ratings. These are very strong signals to search engines, and best of all, they don’t rely on the elitism of one web site owner linking to another or the often mediocre crawl of a dumb bot.” , so this will influence on what appears in the search engine results pages (SERPs).

2. The introduction of Google’s Universal Search: As stated by Google: “Google’s vision for universal search is to ultimately search across all its content sources, compare and rank all the information in real time, and deliver a single, integrated set of search results that offers users precisely what they are looking for. Beginning today (May 16, 2007), the company will incorporate information from a variety of previously separate sources – including videos, images, news, maps, books, and websites – into a single set of results, check: http://www.google.com/intl/en/press/pressrel/universalsearch_20070516.html. Universal Search offers many new methods of increasing visibility at search engines.

Matt Cutts, Google Engineer and Head of Web Spam Team mentioned: “Marketers need to embrace universal search by integrating video, images, books, etc. As far as Google trends go for 2009, they will affect SEOs as well.”
