Inexperienced new recruit
We’ve all been through it: inheriting a PPC account that someone else has managed. And we’ve all had that “WTF” moment after looking under the hood, when we’re baffled by how the account even survived to this point. But you never truly know what drove the previous PPC manager to do what they did — were they being downright dirty, were they just inexperienced, or were they overwhelmed with so many other tasks that they got sloppy? It could be any one of those circumstances. And hey, it’s a small world, so the last thing you want to do when inheriting a PPC account is bash the previous agency or professional to your new client or boss. It certainly does take some restraint as you’re pulling apart the logic of an account that doesn’t seem to make any sense. My agency recently inherited an account with some major blunders, and it’s been haunting me as I try to figure out why they made the choices they did. I wanted to share with … [Read more...] about Downright Dirty, Inexperienced Or Overwhelmed?
The word “recruiter” tends to polarize people in the search marketing industry. Some people find search marketing recruiters to be as welcome as ants at a picnic (see Chris Winfield's comment on My Facebook Page and Marios Alexandrou's blog post on the subject).

Anna Martin agreed to answer my questions about this “mysterious” profession that has reached out to so many in our industry.... 1) Please give us your background and tell us what you do for a living?

Mayer has been trying to build her own winning team, poaching a number of colleagues from Google and pruning some existing Yahoo executives in an effort to put her stamp on the company and change its culture. Now, reports TechCrunch, the company is trying to lure back some former Yahoo engineers and executives. Picking up on a tweet from former Yahoo Tom Coates, TC says that recruiters are sending out “welcome back” packets that discuss how things have changed at the company and how the future is bright. Presumably there are also offers and incentives in these packages. The TC article details the challenges that Yahoo is having recruiting because of the company’s generally poor reputation these days. Mayer is trying hard to change that. Though Mayer is charismatic and persuasive there’s a Catch-22: until Yahoo can show some new products and momentum it will have difficulty gaining the confidence of would-be employees. Without some talented … [Read more...] about Marissa Mayer Trying To Repair Yahoo Image, Using Aggressive Recruiting Tactics

They’re looking to you to introduce them to a new opportunity or simply save them from the ‘perfect job’ turned hellscape they inhabit everyday, in the most painless way possible. But what jobs are people searching for most online? Which sites are already dominating this space? We took a look… Indeed have increased 393% in organic visibility Using our Market Intelligence tool we looked at share of voice over time for job searches.
