How to Increase Organic Search Rankings and Traffic via Thought Leadership Strategies

The discipline of public relations provides marketers a powerful tool, especially when it comes to building awareness, shaping perception and credibility. Far too often, however, the benefits of PR are not effectively leveraged for search engine optimization (SEO). With Google’s latest algorithmic focus on Experience, Expertise, Authoritativeness, and Trustworthiness (E-E-A-T), thought leadership activities like syndicating articles in industry publications, pitching the media, or even speaking at industry conferences are gaining influence and impact with Google rankings. In this session, Kent Lewis will outline effective thought leadership strategies and how they positively impact organic rankings, traffic and ultimately, revenue.


Learning Objectives and Takeaways:

  • How to leverage speaking opportunities to create valuable SEO assets
  • Why pitching the media as an industry expert can boost rankings
  • When and where to syndicate articles via industry websites and publications
