Search marketing has changed. What used to be acceptable-creating one story and spreading it everywhere-no longer gets you top placement. Consumers are getting savvy to traditional PPC ads, and being their first choice requires creativity that most businesses find it hard to keep up with.
Mobile search and social media have established themselves as a critical factor in search ranking and SEO strategy. Your Klout score, your activity on Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook following-all of these components are not part of the search algorithm, and each brand or business must understand how to utilize them in the most effective manner possible.
