The Truth Behind Search Engine Visibility [Podcast]

Searchmetrics contributor Tyson Stockton has published new episode of Voices of Search titled ‘The Truth Behind Search Engine Visibility’ featuring Chris Dickey.

Stockton says, “Visibility is an all-encompassing term in PR, yet it’s important to define and differentiate what SEO visibility specifically means within PR. Join host Ben as he speaks with Founder and CEO of Visably Chris Dickey to learn about SEO visibility and what it means in a PR mindset.


  • To Chris, visibility is something he calls “Share of voice,” and occurs in all places where conversations are happening. This is the percentage of share around your brand, the amount of advertising, what percentage of the conversation a brand owns, etc.
  • Vanity metrics, like a single mention on a New York Times page with 16 million impressions, doesn’t provide all the information SEO visibility metrics yield. SEO visibility metrics provide actual page and link performance data”.

Three-Step Guide to Creating Facebook Lead Ads

With Facebook Lead Ads, you can allow users to stay on the platform to submit your lead form. With this form of ads, you can avoid sending your prospects to external lead pages.

Publishing Tools option under More tab for Facebook page
Social Media Examiner’s Paul Ramondo has shared a three-step process to help you create Facebook Lead Ads.

Ramondo says, “To learn how to create Facebook lead ads, read the article below for an easy-to-follow walkthrough.

#1: Set Up Your Facebook Lead Form

One of the great things about Facebook lead ads is that they minimize the amount of friction with your audience. If you send people offsite (off of Facebook) to, say, the third-party landing page software you use, that page may take 3–10 seconds to load. When you create a Facebook lead form, it’s an instant experience, and Facebook pre-populates the form with the information from that user’s Facebook profile, allowing you to capture a lead in 5–10 seconds.

Before you can run Facebook lead ads, you need to create the lead form itself. To do this, go to your Facebook page, click on the More tab, and select Publishing Tools”.

Three Ways to Deal with Coronavirus Impact on Marketing

The COVID-19 pandemic has adversely affected everything around the world and digital marketing is not an exception.

Search Engine Watch contributor Birbahadur Kathayat has published an article highlighting the impact of this pandemic on digital marketing and three ways to deal with it.

Kathayat says, “Coronavirus lockdown has halted many business processes starting from manufacturing, supply chain to logistics, and marketing.  

Some businesses have closed or paused their digital marketing activities temporarily, citing the health concerns of their employees. If you are on that side, what you will have in the end is drastically decreased online traffic, sales, engagement, conversation, and pushed down search ranking. 

Digital marketing is not a quick-fix solution to gain momentum. It does not give you visibility overnight. If you are using digital marketing techniques such as search engine optimization (SEO) or social media marketing (SMM) – I believe you are already aware that your implementations take three to four months’ time to give results”.
