Wilmington, Delaware. February 8, 2010:
Speed matters in the online marketing world. Speed not only
influences conversion rates; consumers don’t like waiting in a virtual queue.
Speed also affects the way search engines rank web pages.
Ralf Schwoebel, Founder and CEO of Tradebit Inc., will reveal the secrets
of speed on search engine optimization, SEO, in a presentation entitled,
“The Need for Speed – Search Engines Think It Matters” at the Search
Marketing Expo – SMX Conference on March 3, 2010 in Santa Clara.
“There is a widespread misconception amongst webmasters that the
loading speed of a webpage only matters for conversion rates.
Beautiful graphics, AJAX and Flash effects are worth adding to a
page to make a better impression on the shopper and that the
additional load times caused by these ‘cool’ techniques do not
matter for search engine results”, explains Mr. Schwoebel.
“This is a dangerous misconception if you want to succeed online.”
Ralf will show real world examples learned from running Tradebit.com,
the leading marketplace for digital goods and digital content, as well
as the emerging independent virtual goods market, of how differences
measured in milliseconds trigger different indexing behavior and
ranking results in search engines over time.
The presentation will give an overview of freely available software
tools and techniques that offer tremendous improvements in web page
load time with only a little bit of extra work. He will also share
best practice SEO tricks that can make difference in how search
engines think about your web site.
Tradebit.com has perfected these techniques building a fully automated
self-service e-commerce marketplace for merchants, affiliate/promoters
