The online landscape is rapidly changing, offering an increasing number of
opportunities for brands to gain real estate in search, yet also presenting new
challenges for SEO strategy. This report uncovers the key trends shaping the
future of SEO and quantifies how marketers can assess the success of their
brand´s presence on the engines today.
Specifically, this report reveals:
! A new method for monitoring brand visibility on the search engines -
360i´s proprietary PageShare
SM
metric
! The prevalence of universal search and social media results types for
both brand and non-brand keyword terms
! A brand SEO audit for each of the Top 100 Advertisers in the United
States as determined by their approximate PageShare on Google

PageShare is a weighted value assigned to a marketer's presence for a set of
keyword terms in the search engines. It is calculated by analyzing the number
of text listings occupied by a marketer across the first three search engine
results pages (SERPs) for a respective keyword or keyword set and then
assigning a weight to each of the marketer's listings based on their rank.
Marketers who attain many brand-owned digital destinations on the Web -
whether company domains such as www.brand.com or marketer-controlled
social media URLs, such as twitter.com/brand - will have higher PageShare. A
large number of digital destinations in a brand's portfolio is critical for
maximizing PageShare opportunity.
QO9';$'LN>2$ONP2';RLSP!N<!T
PageShare helps transform search engine rankings into a straightforward
"shelf space" metric so that marketers know their share of visibility for a given
term or set of terms. It is a critical component to any marketer's digital
strategy and overall presence in the search engines.
Since search engine result pages can be equated to virtual shelf space, the
more shelf space a marketer occupies with their listings, the more likely a
consumer will engage with their brand or products. When a consumer types in
a keyword - especially a brand keyword - they are conveying explicit intent
and interest in attaining information about a marketer's brand. Marketers who
analyze their PageShare and take steps to improve it will be best equipped to
capitalize on consumer interest in their brand, products or industry.
In addition, as social and consumer-generated media become more prevalent
and search-friendly, marketers who employ an aggressive PageShare strategy
for their brand terms can help prevent unwanted content and links from
appearing within the first pages of the search engines. Services such as digital
word of mouth and well-executed social media strategies can further serve to
increase the volume of positive buzz and user-generated content (UGC)
appearing in the search results for a brand.

It is possible for a brand to have relatively low PageShare but a strong natural
search presence if there are many positive listings from social media sites
ranking in the first three pages that are not controlled by the brand (i.e. UGC).
However, brands can gain even more visibility, traffic and authority if their
own links (which are calculated in PageShare) appear in those results pages.
0NU0?UN!;<>'LN>2$ONP2
PageShare can be calculated for one keyword or multiple keyword terms and
benchmarks for brand and non-brand terms vary widely. Given the difference
in the competition for brand versus non-brand terms, marketers should
calculate their PageShare against a predefined set of related keywords (i.e.
brand terms or a specific set of product terms) rather than attempting to
calculate a single score for all keywords in their SEO strategy. Brand terms
should be calculated separately from non-brand terms since what constitutes a
competitive PageShare score will vary depending on the keyword type.
Figure 1. PageShare for brand terms and non-brand terms should be calculated independently.
Only text-based results owned by the marketer are included in the calculation
of PageShare.

It is important to note that 100% PageShare is highly unlikely. This would
require brand-owned digital destinations to rank in every position (1-30) on
the first three pages of Google, Bing and Yahoo! for each keyword measured.
This kind of dominance is highly improbable for brand terms and close to - if
not impossible - for non-brand terms.

For this report, the rankings for ten brand terms for each of the top 100 US
advertisers were analyzed to assess the relative strengths and weaknesses of
these leading advertisers in capitalizing on natural search shelf space for their
brands. The report also examines the frequency of universal search results -
enhanced listings such as videos and news- and social media listings -links to
social destinations such as Twitter and Facebook- for the 1,000 brand
keywords measured in this study.
R2!OS=SUS>9
360i calculated the approximate brand PageShare as of June 2009 for the Top
100 Advertisers in the United States (Source: Advertising Age). For each
advertiser, we measured results and rankings for their ten most frequently
searched brand terms, identified using Google's Search Keyword tool
1
, and
reviewed the text-based results appearing across the first three pages on
Google. We also recorded the number of listings that were social media sites
2
or universal search results
3
in an effort to quantify the frequency of these
types of listings in the current brand search landscape.
Universal search results are not counted in PageShare. For this report, text-
based social media listings, with the exception of YouTube, Twitter and
Facebook pages controlled by the brand, were not counted toward each
individual advertiser´s brand PageShare.
For this reason, the PageShare audit among the Top 100 Advertisers is
an approximation.
A complete PageShare analysis can be performed when a brand provides a full
list of domains and social media pages under their control.

Here are a few ways to leverage the changing search landscape and maximize
PageShare for your brand:
! Do an inventory check against your brand´s portfolio of owned domains
and subdomains. This will help you architect a strategy to maximize
brand exposure in the engines.
! Take stock of the social media destinations you actively manage right
now. For sites not currently in your portfolio, claim the most relevant
URL, alias or destination address for your brand as soon as possible, for
example:
! http://www.twitter.com/360i
! http://www.facebook.com/360iagency
! www.linkedin.com/companies/360i
Set up the basic profile settings even if you are not ready to actively
participate in the conversation as part of your social media strategy. If
you do participate, think of ways to influence SEO. Plenty of interplay
exists.
Finally, register and claim misspellings, abbreviations and variations of
the brand, products or trademarked addresses in your portfolio.
! Cross-link owned domains and social media destinations. This creates a
search ecosystem that will allow PageRank, domain history and strength
to permeate. Implement a decisive strategy in which you help the
engines understand the complex relationship between your primary
domain and your range of digital destinations. Connect the dots to
maximize PageShare potential.
! Monitor the impact of universal search. Take note of how the addition of
video, news, local and image result types influence the SERPs of
keywords associated with your brand. Universal search can appear for

Here are a few ways to leverage the changing search landscape and maximize
PageShare for your brand:
! Do an inventory check against your brand´s portfolio of owned domains
and subdomains. This will help you architect a strategy to maximize
brand exposure in the engines.
! Take stock of the social media destinations you actively manage right
now. For sites not currently in your portfolio, claim the most relevant
URL, alias or destination address for your brand as soon as possible, for
example:
! http://www.twitter.com/360i
! http://www.facebook.com/360iagency
! www.linkedin.com/companies/360i
Set up the basic profile settings even if you are not ready to actively
participate in the conversation as part of your social media strategy. If
you do participate, think of ways to influence SEO. Plenty of interplay
exists.
Finally, register and claim misspellings, abbreviations and variations of
the brand, products or trademarked addresses in your portfolio.
! Cross-link owned domains and social media destinations. This creates a
search ecosystem that will allow PageRank, domain history and strength
to permeate. Implement a decisive strategy in which you help the
engines understand the complex relationship between your primary
domain and your range of digital destinations. Connect the dots to
maximize PageShare potential.
! Monitor the impact of universal search. Take note of how the addition of
video, news, local and image result types influence the SERPs of
keywords associated with your brand. Universal search can appear for
both brand and non-brand keyword terms, serving as a valuable
opportunity to increase shelf space on the engines.
