What's New in SEO, Social Media, and Mobile Devices

This event is over.

2010 saw major changes in Search Engine Optimization; for almost ten years, Google was at the center of the web until Facebook, mobile devices, and apps of all sorts started to challenge Google dominance in search. The current situation will continue to change: Facebook is evolving rapidly, laptop sales are collapsing, and dozens of iPad clones are coming out. Indeed, 2011 will be a year of continuing deep changes where the web will continue to be an incompatible set of platforms and devices.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • How Google, to keep up with social networks, has changed their ranking criteria where keywords and meta-tags are being replaced by "Social SEO" and what this means for you and how to use it.
  • How to implement a Cross-Channel SEO strategy that works across search engines, social media sites, mobile platforms (iPhone, iPad, Android, Blackberry), and apps.
  • How to utilize SEO for apps to get your target audience to find your app in the haystack where there are nearly a million apps available for download.
