PubCon Las Vegas 2012, Wednesday, October 17th
Good content strategy is not just about fitting in keywords, or filling out your site, it’s about story telling. The panelists emphasized the need to not only tell a story that engages your audience with a beginning, middle, and end, but to focus on the purpose of your story. By thinking through what your audience is looking for in your brand, and what you as a brand want to tell them, you’ll develop more successful and engaging content.
One of the best takeaways from Algo-Proofing came from Ryan Jones, “Good SEOs optimize for Google today. Great SEO’s optimize for the Google of the future.” The whole panel echoed a similar sentiment, urging the audience to think long term about SEO, and to forget about short term fixes. The most sustainable practices are based in focusing on the user.
