Americans typed queries into a search box 17.5 billion times in May 2012. We use search as the primary navigation for the Web and, increasingly, our lives. No matter your business—a local retailer, a large ecommerce site, a nonprofit, a media publisher—your audience is online. Understanding SEO enables you to better engage with your audience as well as understand their needs. SEO should be built into every aspect of your organization: from site infrastructure to product strategy.

In this PRO seminar, you'll learn why SEO is still important, how to seamlessly build it into your strategy, and how to step into your customers' shoes and understand their thinking to improve traffic, and ultimately, revenue.

BONUS! Lucky winners will be chosen at random to win a free copy of MPU course instructor Vanessa Fox's book, Marketing in the Age of Google, Revised and Updated: Your Online Strategy IS Your Business Strategy. To qualify, simply complete the short survey at the end of the live Q&A session.
