Pinterest Now Sending More Traffic Than Yahoo Search, Shareaholic Says.

I found this article from Search Engine Land, and had to repost it here.
In all the talk about SEO, this is hardcore evidence that SOCIAL MATTERS!! If you type the name of your company into a search engine does your company dominate the first page? I dont just mean does your website show up. I mean does your website hold a few spots, along with twitter, YouTube, Facebook, linkedin, Google+ and any other social site your on. I understand that your company name may not be searched alot, but if I’m a prospective client I will probably do a search for your company. I’m looking for reviews, and anything else about you.
Social media matters in SEO.

Glossary of Internet Marketing Terms

Many terms used in Internet Marketing may be Greek to alot of people.  I have compiled a list below to give you a basic understanding of what the terms mean. I will continue to update the list as time progress’.

SEO: Search Engine Optimization.  The steps you take to help optimize your website, and increase your online presence.

SERP’s:  Search Engine Results Pages.  The pages that search engines display, when a search query is entered into the search box.

Keywords:  Your website and each page on your website should be optimized for keywords. These keywords will be in reference to what someone might search for online.  Keywords can be determined through “keyword research”.

PPC: Pay Per Click. Refers to sponsored ads. You pay every time someone clicks on your ad.  These campaigns can be very costly if not run effectively.

Content: The information on your website.  Some “black hat” techniques for getting content is to copy and paste from other websites.  This is not a good method and ALL content should be original and written by someone who understands SEO practices. Content also includes video and pictures.

Alt Tags:  The information a picture or image displays when a mouse hovers over it.

Meta Title:  The Information displayed at the top of your web browser and usually the main title for SERP descriptions.

Meta Description: Tells search engines what the page is about, and usually the description displayed within SERP’s.

Thin Content: Thin content is usually described as not having much value, or being very non-descriptive.  Also not containing enough words to justify having a page.

What are these SERP’s things?

I hear lots of talk in the SEO world about SERP’s.  What the heck is a SERP?

SERP’s Stands for “Search Engine Results Pages”.  You may hear talk about where you rank in the SERP’s.  When you hear this, it is referring to where your website, blog, Facebook page, etc, appears on the Organic Listings of the search engines.

An Organic Listing, is a listing that you do not pay for.  Typically it is the top 10 results per page listed below the “sponsored” ads.

This listing is where the skills of a SEO expert come in handy.  We specialize in optimizing websites to help move up or appear within these rankings.

A SEO specialist can also help you optimize your ads if you are running or planing to run a pay-per-click campaign.
