Friday: Our InfoGraphic #2 SEO potpourri…
As you may remember and most likely know, …we work hard each and every day on our canuck seo clients accounts so while our blog is important, we’re still just a bit too small to be able to write each and every day on breaking SEO news. That said, look here most likely on a Friday for our “potpourri” column on all things of note in SEO!
First up today, is a great infographic from the folks over at DIY SEO, and it’s all about where the marketing spend dollars are being used — and we note quite happily that older generational spends (like newspaper advertising) is decreasing while new media (read SEO here!) dollars are increasing nicely!
This is good news for all of us involved in both SEO and/or new media as the stats come from Forrester, one of the best research companies around and points out just where the increases and the decreases are coming from in marketing budgets. We like of course that there are nice gains shown in the SEO area, but also we note in social media, PPC and email marketing too.
And I do like the artwork too — those folks over at DIY SEO are still in private beta, but once they announce and go live, we’ll of course take the tour and report back on their attempt to bring SEO to small business via a DIY strategy. This is not easy to even countenance, but we’ll await their launch and cover same here on our Canadian SEO blog! So, more to come, eh!
Once again, we find that the SEO troop over at Greenlight have again produced a nice global SEO search engine marketshare infographic that points out just who gets what percentage of daily searches, and while I knew some of the numbers, it was Russia and China’s numbers that were the most surprising. And wow, do those Italians and Spanish users LOVE Google, eh!
On the whole topic of Greenlight themselves, it just might behoove the SEO interested reader to drop by their SEO blog on a regular basis to read up on their take of what’s important, SEO-wise over in the UK. We added that blog to our own daily visit reading list and they usually have some pretty good articles on SEO from over the pond, eh! And it never hurts to learn as much as you can if you’re interested in SEO!
Had to add this one too, eh! The people who run this site at searchengineoptimization.elliance.com, have a great sense too of what to show in an infographic, and I love this one! To quote them they say “Tapping into what already exists online such as photos on Flickr and reviews on Yelp gives users a richer experience. From a search perspective, this infographic illustrates how including all the social media content on your site could also prompt other sites to link to your site. This in turn will help drive up your rankings in the search engines…” and that about spells out the “new” social media meme! Add them to your list too — I did already!
New to us is the humour piece I’ve shown here, a comic actually, from a great site on SEO humour, at Social Media Fish‘s site. Funny? You bet! SEO hip? You bet! I added them to my list too! You should see their Google suggestion piece on their full blog…priceless, eh!
Yup, there’s lots that’s funny in an SEO practitioner’s life, and these guys got that covered! Give them a look see and you’ll chuckle like I did, eh!Google
