Making the world a better place, one search result at a time

Once again, Single Throw's Caryl Felicetta looks at search marketing and search results giving her own spin of a "perfect world" in SERPs.

Felicetta notes how many results simply do not provide what searchers need.

How many of you are frustrated when you are trying to find a new vendor, or a new product, and you instead are fooled by spammy link farms, or simply sites that do not really suit your needs?

Organic search results - those that are indexed by the search engine spider, then run through a series of formulas, or algorithms - are generated by content found on a site, as well as Title and META tags. By including the content searchers are looking for, you are serving on of the formulas requirements: relevancy.

Relevancy is the key to generating qualified leads, bringing you that much closer to the sale. It is the connection made between you and the searcher. If that connection is not made, or broken, you will likely lose the sale.

Understanding the basics of relevancy and customer need combined with tailoring our sites and messages can help to improve the quality of search results - and business! I know it's not like saving the Earth, or global warming, but it's a start to making information, communication, and maybe even the economy, better.

Qualifying the Internet as Marketing Tool

An interesting article regarding qualifying the Internet as a successful marketing tool from Single Throw's Caryl Felicetta as posted at

Believe it or not, there are still companies out there that do not see the Internet as a qualified advertising or marketing medium. With all of the press on search engines, banner advertising, and even phishing, you would think that everyone would be beyond the glass wall that still makes it an "us" and "them" game. There's more tangible evidence - outside of the success that brick and mortar and online only plays - that may help sway those that still do not look at Internet marketing seriously.
