market overview

Suggestions:  Allocate a small budget towards very broad terms(ie- document management software) and a majority of the budget towards more granular queries(ie – document management software for attorneys or hospitals)  The necessary landing page would need to be developed for the long-tail  campaign so, we can achieve great quality scores, bring down cost per click & lower cost per conversion.   $10,000 for Google & Bing Clicks is the starting suggested budget to start gaining market share.

 

Competitiveness of Market and Competitor:

  • Indexed pages & Backlink profiles.

Laserfiche.com has 20,4000 page being indexed and the term “document management” has 372,000 pages with that term in it’s Title Tag

site pages indexed

This is in no way going to be the norm for the entire industry but, it is good example of what we can expect on the “broad” terms of your industry.  There is no doubt that the “Scope of Work” that we will put together can achieve many successes on a more granular level.  These next examples will compare LF’s authority on the internet to WIS’s.  Backlinks and the authority of those backlinks are a “heads up” to Google to inform them what information is trusted by the user’s on the internet.  With that being said, the more authoritative your links are the more likely you are going to become a valuable result to Google’s end users.

In Totality:  A competitor analysis is crucial to understanding strengths and weaknesses.  If you can understand how competitive a keyword is by utilizing the alllintitle:  command for google you can determine whether or not it’s a better idea to attack that keyword immediately or put it as one of your long term goals to achieve at another point in time.  Also, utilizing tools such as semrush.com or other market analysis tools that give you information about how much your competition is spending in Adwords and how they fair through their online presence can give you new ideas on other places to get marketshare from your customer.  Lastly, understanding your competitions backlink profile and how they are communicating with other site is essential to earning authoritative backlinks to your website for branding or other niche keywords.  Together all of these different factors play a huge role in which directions your should take for your Pay per click and Search Engine optimization campaigns.  Don’t forget to sort all of your data in spreadsheets and have a timeline in which to achieve different sections of your campaign

    Trump was surrounded at Friday’s event by officials from Customs and Border Protection as well as surviving family members of those who have loved ones killed by undocumented immigrants. Attorney General William Barr was also at the President’s veto event.
    While some lawmakers including some Republicans — have argued against the President’s use of national emergency powers in this instance, the Justice Department set forth a robust defense of the President’s authority to do so in a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell earlier this month, according to a copy obtained by CNN on Friday.
    “The President acted well within his discretion in declaring a national emergency concerning the southern border,” wrote Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd, setting out the legal basis for the proclamation under the National Emergencies Act and additional statutory authorities, which largely tracks an internal memo issued by the Office of Legal Counsel at the Justice Department.

    On how she landed on her direction in life:

    “I always knew I was meant to be working in art, I just never knew how. In school, was so confused and always switched my majors around. In 2015, I decided to take a break from school to help out at home and that’s when I discovered my passion for fashion illustration. I drew/a> an illustration of Jhene Aiko and she liked it on Instagram. It kind of grew from there.”

  9. Christina was born in the royal castle Tre Kronor on 18 December S. 8 December] 1626. Her parents were the Swedish king Gustavus Adolphus and his German wife, Maria Eleonora, had already had two daughters—a stillborn princess in 1620, and then the first Princess Christina, who was born in 1623 and died the following year.3] Excited expectation surrounded Maria Eleonora’s third pregnancy in 1626. When the baby was born, it was first thought to be a boy as it was “hairy” and screamed “with a strong, hoarse voice.”she later wrote in her autobiography that, “Deep embarrassment spread among the women when they discovered their mistake.” The king, though, was very happy, stating, “She’ll be clever, she has made fools of us all!”6] From most accounts, Gustav Adolf appears to have been closely attached to his daughter, and she appears to have admired him greatly.

  11. Despite residing in Germany for nearly 30 years, there are still some things I cannot wrap my mind around. I may have married a German, pay German taxes, and have German(-American) children, but I guess my US mentality still shines through.

    Like when it comes to personal space. I’ll be standing in the supermarket, in front of a shelf full of products, deliberating over the selection, and inevitably a hand will slip itself in front of my face and grab an item from the row. Many Germans seem to not have any qualms about this at all, but it still takes me aback sometimes.
