Search Engine Optimization and Social Media are no longer distinct channels. They are forever intertwined, each affecting the other in terms of how digital information is discovered, consumed and shared. The subsequent impact on reach and engagement means the integration of these channels is as relevant for Public Relations as it is for Marketing.
I was asked by Melanie Mitchell, SVP of Search Marketing at Digitas to give a presentation on holistic SEO at ad:tech San Francisco where I caught up with another amazingly smart friend, Susan Bratton. She recorded an interview with me on the Social & SEO for Public Relations topic for her popular DishyMix podcast and shared the transcript with me to repost.
Be sure to sign up for SES San Francisco mid August to see Susan give the opening keynote. In the meantime, read on for our discussion about SEO and Social Media or listen to to full interview on DishyMix:

Part adage, part cliché – ‘if a tree falls in the forest with no one there to hear it, will it make a sound?’ The answer is – ‘of course.’ But because no one is there to hear the sound, the sound doesn’t matter.
In much the same way, if content is published to your website with no one able to find it, your online content doesn’t matter. This applies to everything from an exhaustively researched white paper to an opinion heavy blog post.
On Friday, December 10th, TopRank® Online Marketing CEO Lee Odden will help ensure the online content you create is free from the quandary of online invisibility as he presents, Why You Need to Optimize Your Content and How to Do It, at the Marketing Profs Content Marketing Crash Course.
