    Have you heard about Universal Search? It’s Google’s term to describe their search results. Nowadays Google ranks more than just websites. Powerpoint presentations, Adobe pdf’s, photographs, news stories, blogs, videos, and other online content are now shown in search results – making it Universal. If your business puts video online, make sure it’s optimized for search engine.

    Create a Company YouTube Page

    The best thing you can do for your videos is to put them on YouTube. YouTube videos in particular show well in Google because Google owns the company. While there are many video sharing sites, YouTube is by far the most popular, even for B2B. B2B companies like Kinaxis and Corning are doing a great job creating videos and promoting them online.

    In fact, Corning’s video has gone viral with over 15 million views. Kinaxis has won awards for their videos, breathing new life into a staid industrial company.  To really make your YouTube page stand out, go into the account settings and customize the page to match your company’s brand.

    Do you ever wonder why your B2B website isn’t getting more traffic? It could be that your website isn’t properly optimized for search engines.

    Google indexes not only websites, but also images, videos, local listings, news stories, blog posts, and more. Google calls their search results “Universal Search” and blends listings from all types of content it gathers from crawling the World Wide Web. You need to optimize your entire online presence, not just your website.

    The fundamentals for optimizing a B2B site are essentially the same as a B2C site, though there are differences. Information needs are different for B2B buyers, so the type of content and how it’s optimized will be different for B2B.

    Optimizing all your online content will bring more visitors to your website and ultimately generate more leads. With that said, here are 22 SEO tips to optimize your online B2B presence…

    Like a lot of people, I saw the new Samsung GALAXY Note video ad over the weekend–the one that shows off all the bells and whistles of the upcoming buzzed-about device. I was struck by how different this ad is from some contemporary smartphone and gadget ads, from Apple’s iPhone commercials to Verizon’s Droid spots.

    And that’s when I realized the diversity in gadget marketing online is proof that brands can achieve online video marketingsuccess through a variety of styles, forms, and tones.

    Search Engine Land’s Jordan Kasteler wrote on Tuesday that making content easy to share over the web is critical to it becoming viral.

    Whether it’s an article written as part of a content marketing campaign or a video, Kasteler believes removing as many steps as possible required to share a link will improve the chances of it becoming viral.

    Even for those that don’t necessarily reach enough people to receive the viral distinction, sharing widgets that allow for easy posting to social media websites and content aggregators are generally a good idea.

    Beyond social media widgets, making the piece easy to email with a button will help maximize its visibility.

    We’ve been doing quite a few posts about [easyazon-link asin=”0470620757″]Search Engine Optimization[/easyazon-link] (SEO) lately. SEO isn’t hard the same way calculus is hard, but it can be very time consuming and is constantly changing.

    You can ignore it all together, but know you probably won’t get a lot of traffic from Google. You can pay someone to do it for you. Most of the providers you find cheap aren’t very good and the good ones are rarely cheap. The going rate for a firm to look at your site and make recommendations is often $750 to $1000+. That’s for a one time recommendation! To have them monitor and make ongoing recommendations or to actually implement to recommended changes would likely make you faint.

    Life continues to exist because we have laws that govern our attitudes, values and perception of others. Ask yourself, if there were no laws in the state, maybe someone could shoot you without consequence. When it comes to our business life, there are certain laws, although they may not be visible or obvious per say, they ultimately determine how far you go.
