Fold & Scrolling Internet Marketing MythBusters

The internet marketing industry is full of shysters. This is not really a discussion starter – it’s a fact. During this series I want to talk about the quite popular myths in my favourite area of CRO. Today we address:

Myth 1 – The fold
Myth 2 – Users don’t scroll
Myth 3 – Content on long pages is less likely to be seen than on short ones

Unethical SEO – Russian Government Seeks Help to Hide the Truth from SERP

There can be no doubt that search engines are not just a commercial tool any more. It became the optimal starting point for any information research, especially in countries with no freedom of speech and an entirely corrupted media, search engines would be the last reliable resort of finding trustworthy information.

In the business world, tactics have focused on optimising “the right pages” in order to outrank the pages with harmful information (think about brand search queries where “Company X is a scam” is on the first page of results). This is already so common that arguing about the ethics is useless. When millions of dollars are spent on building the brand equity, any method becomes ethical by default. A few thousand dollars for an SEO company is a very cost effective method considering the potential harm bad reviews can cause the company’s bottom line.

However, when a government company is offering taxpayer’s money in order to hide their own mistakes it’s definitely over the top.

Email marketing optimisation – list targeting tips

The majority of email guides and strategy lists are solely dedicated to optimising copy, layout and the offer display in your actual email template, however I think there is a gap in the information available on list segmentation and creating campaigns targeted specifically to those lists.

Online Surveys: 4 tips on how to waste a budget

Online surveys have become one of the must-have tools for any marketer working to increase conversion rates or improve user experience. As brilliantly noted by Avinash Kaushik: while traditional analytics are extremely good at answering ‘What is going on?’, online surveys (as a part of user voice/feedback tactic) are responsible for answering ‘why is it happening?’ (not a quote, just a personal interpretation).

I’ve stumbled upon a survey highlighting 4 issues I had thought were easy to avoid for everybody. Perhaps the pitfalls are not so obvious…
