Consumers often flock to social media during current events and create trends before they become searchable on traditional search engines. Social channels are search engines in themselves, and we need to treat them as such to harness consumer data and optimize search. Join Rebecca Harris, GM Global Head of Social Center of Expertise, as she shares insights on how search patterns of the digital consumer help us understand our social communities, tell better brand stories that resonate with fans, and access real-time data to react to things in a relevant and timely manner.

The marketing funnel is about to change again. Options vs. answers will dominate the next phase in search engine marketing, as consumers shift to mobile, and voice options become more prevalent with help from Cortana, Siri, Google Now, and others. The transition means engines will return fewer options in exchange for more answers. How do marketers advertise when search engines lose their interface? Join us as marketers discuss how to rethink search as consumer needs change.

Marketing strategies are often based on assumptions about how individuals phrase search queries or terms that appear in their Web analytics platforms. This makes them bias to search terms they already know. Analysis from former Forrester Research Analyst Nathan Safran examines changing consumer behavior patterns and reveals differences in how individuals search online depending on the device and media they choose.

Google guarantees better ranking opportunities for mobile-friendly sites, as mobile algorithms change to rank Web sites in real time, application deep linking, and automate traditional tasks held by search engine optimization professionals.
