2/23/12 6:30p Art Institute of Nashville; Social Signals in Search
The bottom line: What happens in social media affects search engine rankings. In this meetup, we will discuss the social signals in search. We will learn how social media is connected to search.
The major search engines have made a commitment to social media. What you do on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ factors into ranking algorithms. It is not just your social media interactions, but also your site. In this session, we will provide tips for webmasters to make their site more accessible and “social media friendly”. From extensions to conversation, we will discuss the integration of social and search.
With the recent announcement about Google+ integrating into Google search results the impact is even stronger. However, how does that affect you? What does that mean to social media? Learn social tips that can help you with a stronger search presence.
Local search and social expert, John Ellis of Crescent Interactive (http://www.crescentinteractive.com) will lead the discussion. Crescent Interactive is an online marketing firm specializing in search engine marketing and social media. John is a frequent industry contributor to the Nashville technical and marketing community, including leading PodCamp and BarCamp Nashville.
In addition to John’s presentation, we’ll also be doing a group review of a website, brainstorming ideas on how the website & company could better market themselves. Want us to review your website? Let me know about your situation and we’ll get you on the schedule.
Finally, we’ll close the evening with an open Q & A discussion of SEO and all things related to Internet Marketing.
