Years ago, SEOs proclaimed, Content is king! Yet the full potential of content as the catalyst for everything we want to accomplish in SEO was not realized. Even back then, SEOs wanted to measure their efforts.

Fast-forward to 2014, and were facing more choices in our marketing with more ways to measure than ever. We have multiple ways to reach customers and mountains of data to sort through; and within all this is the need to confirm that what were doing is driving business outcomes.

At the top of every SEOs mind right now is content and SEOs and brands have a burning need to measure the performance of their content.

Content is more important than ever to SEOs, and it should be. The experience a brand creates through its content across channels is a key differentiator today.

According to the 2014 Digital Trends report(pdf) by Adobe, brands cited customer experience as the most exciting opportunity in 2014 and beyond, looking ahead five years time. In that same report, both brands and agencies cited content marketing as a top priority for 2014.

But SEOs are still trying to figure out if what they are doing with content is impacting the business in a meaningful way. According to the BrightEdge 2014 Search Marketer Survey, 52 percent of respondents said they would invest at least 10 percent more up to 25 percent more in content if they could identify what content was the most engaging to their audience.

Twenty-five percent is a significant amount especially when were talking about brands that are already investing millions in content strategy and marketing.

And consider data coming from the Content Marketing Institute(pdf), which show 10 to 24 percent of the total B2B marketing budget is spent on content marketing.

One of the most trying points in my search marketing career has been molding a mindset coupling both SEO and the user experience. This primarily means stepping away from bot obsession and solely thinking about rankings and traffic.

Every campaign must meet site objectives while hopefully maintaining heightened organic visibility. SEO is evolving more to focus on satisfying the end user.

However, there are many times where I still want to make SEO, bot-focused revisions to a site that may impede upon site usability and the user experience. So this begs the question: which should win?

Both.

While it may seem difficult to meld both SEO on-page implementation while also providing the best user experience, those who can do this well will be the more successful search tacticians.

What I have compiled below are what I seem to encounter the most day-to-day in the ongoing relationship between usability and SEO with my clients.

Problem

We need more content above the fold but if we do add a few paragraphs it will push our product listings below the page fold. This is a logical worry. We can appease the engines with above-fold content but what if it is at the cost of losing product listing visibility?

Solution

Use tabs or an expanding div. With this, you will be able to show introductory page content with an option for an interested reader to read more while also having product listing visibility about the page fold.

Budget constraints put local businesses in a tough position when it comes to marketing. The situation gets worse with inbound tactics like SEO, where it’s difficult to determine ROI beforehand. This was less of a problem two or three years ago, when cheap/predictable SEO was possible (even if such spammy tactics inevitably posed a threat to brand reputation).

But times have changed. How Google works has changed. The major algorithm updates Panda and Penguin have completely transformed the way that many perform SEO. Pulling significant traffic from the search engines on a limited budget is almost a nightmare.

People such as Neil Patel are saying content marketing is the new SEO. If the mainstream SEO opinion is to be believed, without a content marketing strategy in place, you might as well forget about Google doing you any favors.

That’s what everybody seems to be saying, anyway.

Except, that’s not really true. There’s much more to do in SEO than content marketing. What follows are other things that you can do as a local business to make the most of the search engines.

Before we dive into some SEO techniques that can help you get that much needed search traffic, we need to address this question:

“Why would people link to/share/talk about my site?”

Everybody’s answer these days seems to be “compelling content.” We’re arguing that this isn’t a necessity by any means. Still, Google is obviously looking for editorial links, and a website with just a company backstory, a sales pitch, and driving directions isn’t going to earn many of those.

So what do you do instead of content?

You look at the most successful sites on the web, and you realize that most of them aren’t really content sites either. They’re:

Liberty Media’s John Malone

With a $142 billion market capitalization, Wall Street has determined that the Walt Disney Co. is the most valuable traditional media conglomerate on the planet. But, according to a report released Thursday, it is no longer the most profitable one.

That honor now belongs to Liberty Media, in part due to its investment in SiriusXM Radio.

Disney’s net income in 2013 rose 7.5 percent to$6.6 billion while Liberty’s soared 537 percent to $9 billion, SNL Kagan said Thursday. Disney’s mediocre improvement in net income, in fact, caused it to drop to third place, as 21st Century Fox also showed a meteoric surge of 434 percent to $7.3 billion in net income, despite having spun out of News Corp. at the tail end of that company’s fiscal year.

STORY: U.S. Posted First Full-Year Pay TV Subscriber Drop in 2013

Disney was 2012′s net-income champion, but in 2013 several factors got in the way of it repeating that feat, including a $321 million charge for litigation and $214 million in charges related to impairment and restructuring, according to Kagan.

Liberty, meanwhile, scored a significant victory by amassing millions of shares of SiriusXM and recording a whopping $7.5 billion gain on that investment in the first quarter of 2013.

As for 21st Century Fox, it benefited from News Corp’s. decision to boost its stake in Sky Deutschland to 55 percent. When News Corp split into two companies, the Sky Deutschland stake went to 21st Century Fox.

Rounding out the Top 6 on the SNL Kaganlist are Time Warner, which posted a 26 percent gain in net income in 2013 to $3.7 billion; Viacom, up 21 percent to $2.4 billion; and CBS, up 19 percent to $1.9 billion.
