It is no longer possible to separate search and social media optimization. A holistic approach is needed to optimize your content for all of the places it may be found online.

This course addresses optimization tactics as they apply to an overall online presence – focusing on search engines, social media platforms, and the mobile web.

Traditional optimization methods are discussed, as well as optimization tactics for social media, sharing, and conversion.

Emphasis is placed on “semantic” optimization tactics; which is rapidly becoming the standard for successful placement in search engines and social media platforms.

Optimizing for Search

There is more to Google search than just finding websites; there are universal search databases and Google Plus results to optimize for as well.

Social networking sites, blogs, and media communities all have their own search challenges, as does the mobile web.

Search and Social Media Optimization Essentials explores optimization tactics for getting found in all of these online arenas.

Optimizing for Sharing

You can no longer rely on people finding your website or blog “by chance” while surfing the Web. Site content must be shared as much as possible within social media channels to get it proper exposure.

Search and Social Media Optimization Essentials explores ways to make content more sharable, methods for making the content easy to share, and tactics for optimizing the content so it looks its best once it is shared.

Optimizing for Conversion

Google Authorship and Rich Snippets improve our visibility in Google search, while Twitter Cards and Rich Pins give our content extra exposure in their respective platforms.

Search and Social Media Optimization Essentials demonstrates the semantic or “structured” markup that makes this type of exposure possible.

Holistic Search Optimization Framework

The course ends with a discussion on how to create a holistic optimization framework.

Many worksheets, templates, and example code included!
