Leverage and implement search and social media together in real-time to win the hearts and wallets of customers. Search and Social is a detailed, hands-on guide to building a successful real-time content marketing platform. Real-time content marketing is the emerging practice of using both search marketing and social publishing tactics in real-time to help your audience find you, and you find them, in order to attract and engage customers and ultimately increase revenue. It requires both traditional SEO publishing and social engagement principles, and most importantly, it requires the marketer to be active and present in a synaptic digital world that keeps going 24/7. This book shows you how to develop, implement, monitor, and optimize strategies and tactics for developing a strategic plan that encompasses content, platform, and community management, emphasizing the interdependent elements of search and social together.

This book is a must-read for SEOs, social media marketers, content marketers, Internet marketing practitioners, marketing executives, and CMOs. SEO and social media can no longer operate in silos, as each discipline is now reliant on its counterpart to achieve its greatest potential. The bottom line is that social marketers must understand search marketing and SEO to extend the value of their efforts, and search marketers must understand the elements of social to succeed in becoming more visible. "Search and Social" cuts to the chase and shows you the exact areas where search and social overlap, and how this synergy creates the imperative for marketers to shift to a real-time and participatory approach with their publishing efforts. Real-time marketing and publishing leverages social and search strategies and technologies, but also emphasizes the element of being present in your marketing efforts, in a digital world where your customers never sleep.

The book includes details on the combined "search and social" elements of blogs, video, images, forums, keyword research, market research, press releases, social copy writing, content strategy, social media platforms, schema.org, among many others. Some of the new topics that will be discussed and introduced include the share graph, 2nd-tier search visibility, recency as the new relevancy, social relevancy, the living natural language of search and social users, establishing authority and trust with people and search engines, connectedness, acting authentically in the spirit of the target audience, and participatory publishing techniques. The book also provides the follow ways to think and execute on search and social strategies in real-time:

  • Outlines how combined search and social technologies have changed the digital publishing landscape forever
  • Outlines a process for preparation to act "in-the-moment" with your digital content marketing efforts
  • Shows how to optimize social profiles and spaces for extended search engine visibility, and extended visibility in networks
  • Provides a new framework for understanding how search engines are becoming more social, and how social networks are becoming more algorithmic
  • Illustrates how to use the social graph to build your link graph for search engines, using likes, +1s, Retweets, and more
  • Provides insight into using social keyword research techniques to better communicate with and find your audience in networks 
  • Illustrates how networks use traditional search concepts to extend and trigger content, and how to take advantage of these systems in a relevant way
  • Includes the nitty-gritty technical details, like how to set up RSS feeds for content, integrating Twitter, and more
  • Illustrates how a robust real-time and participatory social content strategy can extend visibility in search engines 
  • Interviews with some of the leading experts in search, social, and real-time content marketing
  • Written by a leader in the search and social marketing industry

From the Author:

Thanks for checking out this page for the book. In the first two chapters, I make the intellectual case for both real-time content marketing, and search and social as an independent discipline. Overall, there is something here for every Internet marketer, and I believe I have successfully merged some difficult theoretical concepts directly into day-to-day strategy, planning, and logistics of digital marketing. Many books focus on just the 30,000 foot view, and others are deep in the weeds. This book does a little bit of both, and that's a good thing. Not only will you understand the big picture, but you will also be able to put it into practice.

At over 400 pages, this is not a book you just sit down and read from cover-to-cover, though you are welcome to do so. It is a book that you will be reaching for over and over again as you get a handle on the combined search and social elements of a variety of tactics and strategies.

Use it to find a quick answer, develop a deep strategy, or to help your own clients and people you work with to develop a common language and understanding around modern Internet marketing strategies and tactics.

I hope the book serves you well!
