"Ten Proven Strategies" describes how search engines provide a "fast lane" to a highly qualified, self-selecting pool of potential customers. Each day, search engines and online directories receive more than 400 million queries about products, services, and information solutions. To capture their share of this traffic, the guide recommends, marketers should employ 10 time-tested practices.
Strategy #3 warns marketers of the importance of Web site design. Elaborate graphics and technology, intended to enhance a visitor`s experience on a site, actually may prevent the visitor from finding it. In fact, 97 of the Fortune 100 companies use designs that hinder their sites` search engine visibility.
Strategy #6 demonstrates that identifying search "keywords" is no simple task. The online population is growing more diverse and complex - and so is the formation of their search engine queries, the guide says. One example: In advising a Fortune 500 manufacturer of industrial polishes and rubbing compounds, iProspect discovered that not a single visitor arrived at the client`s site by searching for "rubbing compound." Focused on their needs, rather than a product, potential customers entered queries such as "how to remove swirl marks."
