I remember when Google had been out for about a year or so, back when I was promoting a single website in-house. I was really cautious about making changes to the site because we were ranking well for terms we cared about, and I was afraid that a single change could possibly take that away. I remember making lots of small changes slowly, and then waiting patiently to see if they had some kind of impact.

I have a morning ritual that I like to follow most workdays. I like to stop for breakfast at one of the nearby coffee houses or bakeries and sit down with a newspaper, some coffee, and something to eat, and spend some time talking with some of my neighbors. Seems like many of them are older, and while I get some questions about things like how to reduce the amount of email spam they received, I usually learn more in those conversations than I'd ever imagined.

On Wednesday night at the first ever Agile SEO meetup hosted by WebiMax's own Chris Countey, I delivered a presentation regarding the value of rich content and its place in the future of online marketing.  I discussed the growth of video on the Web and how it has gradually become a more powerful marketing tool for those who properly utilize it.  However, the development of a successful digital video marketing campaign is a complex and involved process that may seem daunting to some.  In fact, following my presentation, several attendees approached me with questions and concerns about the video production process.  I've designed the following guide as both a response to those Agile SEO attendees and to help those not present at the meetup to better understand the value of rich content in online marketing.

In my last blog post, I discussed the significance of "#NBCFail" and "#Rule40" and their impact on the social media landscape as of late.  The 2012 Olympics have affected the news, sports, entertainment and pop culture and have even influenced advertising and marketing on a global scale.  Throughout the Web and more specifically, social media, this year's Games have recently become the most discussed topic amongst the worldwide Internet community.  However, the historic landing of the Mars Curiosity rover on Monday may have overshadowed the Olympics' overwhelming social engagement levels and subsequently altered the focus of many online marketers and advertisers.
