Jim Sterne, founder of the eMetrics Marketing Optimization Summit and current Chairman of the Web Analytics Association tackles this subject head on and reveals what he's written in his seventh book on using the Internet for marketing. Reach? Frequency? Traffic? Oh yes - plus influence, sentiment analysis and a whole new way of measuring marketing.

At this panel, top paid search tool vendors will showcase their latest features in bid management, campaign workflow efficiencies, and reveal what the future holds for the industry.

Introduction to Information Retrieval on the Web

Understanding how search engines gather information from billions of documents and index them is essential knowledge for search engine marketers. And having a much better understanding of how hyperlink based ranking algorithms such as Google's PageRank works, goes a long way towards helping you develop a solid linking strategy.

  • Find out how search engine crawlers work.
  • Find out how keywords are weighted and indexed
  • Find out how hyperlink based ranking algorithms work
  • Find out how end user behavior can affect ranking
  • Find out how to future proof your search marketing strategy in a new decade of search

And it's all broken down into simple-to-understand terms and analogies.

Duplicate Content & Multiple Site Issues
More and more site owners are concerned that they might get penalized accidentally or overtly because of duplicate content. If you run mirror sites, will search engines ban you? If you have listings that are similar in nature, is that an issue? What happens if you syndicate content through RSS and feeds? Will other sites be considered the "real" site and rob you of a rightful place in the search results? This session looks at the issues and explores solutions.

Keynote Panel
Paid Search, Content Networks & Display
Predominantly discussing the continually evolving pay-per-click space in the UK, this panel also looks at broader opportunities. Having progressed from a basic "Dutch Auction" type of service, pay-per-click advertising now includes content networks where paid search ads are placed on third party websites. AdSense may be the biggest of these types of networks. How do you get the best out of a combination of pay-per-click at the search engine interface as well as reaching out into the content network? Plus, you can place display ads in the content network. Does this provide more clicks and sales? Or is it purely about branding. And as display adverting moves from a CPM model to CPC model, how do we best integrate display and text ads. And, of course, quality score is bound to creep in and out of the conversation. Learn from a panel of seasoned practitioners.

Why Does Search Get all the Credit?
My search campaign generated $400 million in sales. So did my organic campaign. But my analytics is telling me that my display campaign generated $400 million too. The problem is I only made $200 million last year. Which statistic should I believe, or should I dismiss them all? This session will focus exclusively on gaining a better understanding of how, when, and where to attribute revenue gains.

Search Becomes the Display OS
Search advertising, the onetime bastard stepchild of internet marketing which only five years ago barely existed, is now poised to double the spend of display advertising in 2009 (eMarketer). With the continued decline in Display performance, some people believe the only thing that will save Display advertising is making it more like Search. This session explores these leading edge ideas, technology and provides some early case studies the effectiveness of making Search the Operating System for Display. We will provide case study examples of the above and the amazing results achieved and ads that are not only search applications themselves but that can be purchased and targeted based on the keyword.

Automating Twitter
Within the dramatically expanding social network space, Twitter has become everybody's darling ever since major companies like Dell publicized how many millions of dollars they are actually making via this 140-characters-is-enough micro blogging platform. Of course, the real question is how to bring your message across this huge stream of endless tweets and how to actually be heard in an ocean of white noise without breaking the bank. Obviously, automation is key here - but it does require a lot of insight into the actual mechanics of Twitter in general and online conversations in particular: which automation tools to use? How can you prevent getting your account banned? Treading the fine line between ripping success and utter failure - it's about the right kind of credible interaction. Learn why subtle, "suggestive marketing" works best on Twitter - and how to automate that effectively, too. Plus, effective strategies to outpace your competitors.
