Слайд 2

Via Backchannel

Слайд 3

Via Google

Слайд 4

Google is willing to kill display ads to build a new way of funding web content

Слайд 5

Facebook is willing to admit defeat on its own products and pay billions to acquire other social players

Слайд 6

Google’s willing to sacrifice huge amounts of revenue to provide a better, more addictive user experience.

Слайд 7

Even Microsoft, long a bastion of protectionist thinking, is willing to hurt core products in order to innovate: Via The Economist

Слайд 8

What About Us Web Marketers?

Слайд 9

Historically, we’ve lagged the industry: Google, Facebook, Web Users Marketers

Слайд 10

Our innovation is usually restricted to the areas we’re allowed to control and influence.

Слайд 11

It’s not certain what SEO will be as our industry grows up…

Слайд 12

Would we risk our current value propositions In order to innovate and grow?

Слайд 13

Will mobile, apps, brand, content, etc. become allies Or will they be the trends that disrupt us?

Слайд 14

A Changing Industry

Слайд 15

We’ve seen massive growth in the number of web marketing professionals (greatest in content marketing & strategy) Via Twitter & Optimal Targeting

Слайд 16

After substantial growth from 2010-2014, interest in social media and content marketing seem to be flattening.

Слайд 17

“SEO” remains the dominant term in our field.

Слайд 18

More time on brand strategy More time on content curation Less time on link building More time managing people More time on press & PR More time on social media More time on reputation mgmt What an SEO does is in constant flux (2013 vs. 2015):

Слайд 19

We Face an Increasingly Complex Landscape

Слайд 20

More Searches, Searchers, & Searches / Searcher Than Ever Before: Via RKG’s Quarterly Digital Marketing Report

Слайд 21

But even with that growth, Google’s overall share of referral traffic is shrinking Some combo of social, direct, & referral traffic must be growing even faster.

Слайд 22

Google’s showing fewer ads on average. Whoa!

Слайд 23

But, they’re charging more, on average, per ad: Perhaps Google’s sacrificing number of ads to boost quality and/or searcher happiness…

Слайд 24

Mobile has become huge and keeps growing, but, weirdly hasn’t cannibalized desktop:

Слайд 25

Mobile search is growing rapidly, while desktop search growth has flattened. Via AJ Kohn & Comscore

Слайд 26

Some things stay the same: Google’s still ~90% of global search and ~80% of US search

Слайд 27

Facebook, similarly, sends about 90% of all social media referrals.

Слайд 28

This, despite the fact that Facebook organic reach is incredibly low (though better for small brands & pages): Via Locowise

Слайд 29

Social traffic is creeping up on organic search in total referral volume for some verticals (like news/media) Via Twitter

Слайд 30

But businesses that invest in multiple channels still see email & SEO as ROI leaders (social trails far behind) How do you rate the following channels in terms of return on investment? Via Econsultancy

Слайд 31

After years of facing off, the EU finally filed formal charges against Google for abusing their monopoly in shopping results. Via NYTimes

Слайд 32

But, in the US, Google’s lobbying expenditures will probably keep American politicians from pursuing the company. Via Reuters

Слайд 33

This, despite the FTC believing Google was guilty of some serious violations. Via WSJ

Слайд 34

Via Twitter Search results continue to trend toward Larry Page’s vision of delivering a complete answer.

Слайд 35

Apps in search results create an entirely new market of potential customers/employers for SEOs.

Слайд 36

SEO for apps may help that medium reach the 65%+ of folks who don’t download any new apps. Via Time.com

Слайд 37

Sadly, we’re losing our last source of keyword referral data as Bing, too, goes “not provided” Via Bing

Слайд 38

All this Change Feels Overwhelming
