Unlike other search-related books that are about tactical search engine optimization or paid search, this book will focus on being found in organic search results, using search data to better understand customers, and to deepen the customer engagement for greater customer lifetime value. The book includes numerous case studies from easily recognizable companies as well as direct conversations with the major search engine representatives (Google, Yahoo, and Microsoft Live Search) and the smaller niche engines (such as Spock, Wink, hakia, and Nexplore).
