Wx_Facebook_Google-vs.-AmazFor years, Amazon has been viewed as the cream of the crop when it comes to fast, dependable delivery. With their pristine reputation, more and more larger brands integrated their products into the Amazon shopping feed and innovations like Amazon Prime made online shopping more and more common.  However, Amazon’s reign at the top has a formidable challenger as Google now has their own plans to dominate the online shopping space with Google’s Shopping Express.

Yesterday, a live Twitter session that the National Football League hosted directly with their commissioner, Roger Goodell, certainly created a lot of interest.

While Matt Cutts has come out and directly stated that the new TLDs won’t be given preference over existing .com’s, I do feel strongly that over time these TLDs will begin to have increased value in areas related to very specific and targeted keywords.

At the dawn of the Internet, the focus by advertisers was on broad, mass appeal advertising. Brands were consumed with generic level keywords and dominating positions around these terms was the sole focus of many companies – and make no mistake, it worked well for those fortunate enough to dominate the search landscape. Over time, things have changed….Web users are savvier, they don’t want generic answers, they want specific answers. This scenario has created a world of opportunity for advertisers who can now more firmly focus on a niche rather than just a broad based objective.

One of the most difficult things to do is revive a dead brand, but I have to give Yahoo credit for doing everything they can to make it happen. I recall the days that Yahoo was the champion of the search space and "the" place to go for online news. They were the success story coming in and pulling away the market share from AOL in the early days of the online revolution. Somewhere along the way, Google came in and with little advertising or fanfare blew away Yahoo into an afterthought.

When I first became involved in online marketing – some 12+ years ago – how a company gained traction online was very different from the methods of today.  Back then, companies could create paid search ads on Google and start to see immediate benefits from those ads. It wasn’t so much that businesses needed to be marketing specialists; they just needed a big enough budget to outpace their competitors. Most Web users didn’t even understand the difference between a paid advertisement and a natural search listing.

Twitter recently announced the further roll out of what they are referring to as their Lead Generation Card. This card enables followers to convert into targeted leads based on offers they are provided. I feel, from a lead generation perspective, this is a great offering.  Because the end user doesn’t need to go in and reenter their information for a lead to be created, they can more easily “opt-in” to the offer. This way, Twitter already has all of their information stored to easily provide a lead across to the advertiser.

I am sure by now all of us have become keen to the notion that by visiting certain websites, those sites track our view, and in turn ensure we are “remarketed” to continuously view ads from the company as we further navigate the Internet. To some users, this practice could be perceived as annoying or even haunting, but from a brand perspective, the value is extremely high.

One of the most frustrating aspects of being involved in the online marketing industry is the fact that many "experts" in the SEO field act as if there is a certain "magic" behind SEO that only a few select individuals possess. These "experts" guard this information as a magician would protect his secret magic tricks. These "experts" also build fear in potential customers by claiming that only they can get them results and that other companies will get them "blacklisted" by search engines.
