These days it's better to focus on white hat link building techniques rather than shady tactics. Link spam is a short term strategy. Focus on the long term!

Instead of selling a particular product, brands have the opportunity to create content that will engage their audience. And the secret to achieving this infectious engagement is through agile content that speaks to the human condition. Forget about B2B or B2C, we’re now focusing on H2H (human-to-human) centric communication that evokes a fireworks display of emotion, which ultimately triggers a reaction. And, if various brands are looking to see a rise in sales, they are in desperate need of some awe-inspiring content that leaves people feeling, well, mushy.

Semantic search is a difficult subject to discuss  with non technical people, or those who do SEO but do not understand that SEO is a core marketing function.   Dealing with non technical folks is an awful lot easier than dealing with many Search Engine Optimisation professionals who do not know that SEO is a core marketing function, as they some how have the MENTAL BLINKERS in place and have issues being subjected to common marketing principles.

This comes about due to the bad use of terminology intorduced by the SEO industry to combat the other marketing components within internal squabbles to get their fair share of the available resources, so that they may be placed within the SEO SILO where these resources are then guarded and not shared with the rest of the marketing team.

This is not unique to the SEO sector, but is very evident in corporate culture, where each marketing division has their own research teams, their own space on the company servers, their own filing system, their own offices and their own budget that is not  shared with the rest of the company SILOS like public relations, sales, customer care or any other internal marketing department.

This mentality has many issues that need to be addressed, and the biggest one is the costs involved in duplicating market research and the subsequent target market research along with key words and topic section that would be used in copy-writing for any of the many different mediums and different platforms that are used as marketing channels.

Not sure exactly how this can be addressed,  but this  Google collection will be a helpful start in the thinking process of developing a strategy to  get marketing folks and SEO folks to work together as marketing partners through FUFISM based marketing tactics.

Getting both marketing folks and those who are established within the SEO industry to understand that they are on the same team, starts by getting both parties to understand their common areas of function.  this Google plus post  where  +Omi Sido starts the discussion with the question Does Social Media actually have any SEO impact?  seems a fair place to get the conversation around marketing and where the Search engine Optimisation team fit into the picture as far as the rest of the marketing team is concerned  https://plus.google.com/u/0/+OmiSido/posts/RKY8qCHXV3S

also thanx to +Ammon Johns +Randy Milanovic  +Tsvetelina Zapryanova  and +Christina Blount Presnell  who contributed to the conversation in this liked post discussing the IMPACT OF SOCIAL MEDIA ON YOUR SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMISATION EFFORTS

I visited Jacques Visser there on 29 March 2012 to discuss YahClick, the soon to be launched satellite internet. The company looks like they're expanding rapidly, and the think tank that Jacques and I met in looked very convenient for brainstorming. In fact after my meeting with him, I was inspired to launch my idea into cyber space immediately and YahPreneur was born.
