In Case You Missed SES Last Week…

August 22nd, 2008

I was at Search Engine Strategies San Jose this past week and did a session titled Pay Per Conversation with Brett Crosby, Group Manager Google Analytics & Google Website Optimizer. The premise of the session is that so many people focus on paying for the click, that they forget that the click is just the beginning of the conversation with your visitor as they arrive at your website. Brett and I presented how to identify opportunities to improve your pages using web…

The Interactive Marketer 2.0

June 20th, 2008

Last week, a friend was sharing war stories with me about an upcoming site launch. His highly recognizable site, which will remain anonymous in this column, rakes in billions. I congratulated him and asked how they’re going to optimize post-launch. He told me they’re pausing optimization for six months to collect enough “control” data.

Today’s interactive marketers face and make these types of decisions several times a day. At a glance, my bud’s decision seems sound. But does it hold up…

The Good, The Bad & The Pay-Per-Click Ugly

March 6th, 2008

A few months ago, I showed how Dell had bought a PPC ad for “bestbuy Sony DSC-W80,” and although they were smart to buy this highly-targeted search term, there was no follow-through on the landing page.

Bryan Eisenberg bought the camera last year and was so happy with its performance that he’s been spreading the word around the office ever since. After doing a routine Google search, we noticed — unsurprisingly — that there are a lot of bidders for the term…

Just a Bit Off Target With Pay-Per-Click

December 6th, 2007

Even giant e-tailers like Target.com can miss the mark now and then. Despite big budgets, keeping track of everything can be a nightmare to manage. But if you’re going to place Pay-Per-Click (PPC) ads, it’s absolutely critical to follow though and check the links. The customer experience should be as effortless as possible, and if PPC ads don’t bring the visitors where they intended to go, they’re just one click of the “back” button away from your competitors. And if you…
