Two weeks ago, I bared all and showed you our worst SEO project results. Today it’s time to brag a little about some good results. Not very timely coming mid-way through 2009, but here we lay out our best project from 2008
What was your most successful SEO project? What went right and why?
Our most successful SEO Project in 2008 was the re-launch of <redacted>.com in 2008. This project was very complex from an SEO standpoint, because it involved merging two completely different web sites into one unified site, requiring many seo techniques . Under a truncated timeline and much pressure, Three Deep was able to analyze the new site from and SEO perspective and give detailed instructions on how what techniques to use to structure the site for maximum SEO results. Specifically, during the transition process, we were able to accomplish the following:

This SEO question came to me indirectly through Twitter. Three Deep is developing a good relationship with the excellent ladies at the Savvy B2B marketing blog, and in order to keep up with one another, we follow our mutual Twitter updates. When @michellelinn had a question about WordPress techniques (which is my favorite thing in the entire world), I knew I could help. Here’s how it all went down (in true multi-channel fashion):
My website, built on WordPress, is only showing up in Bing (not Google or other search engines). Any ideas on what I can do? Many thanks!

Q: Why do you recommend creating unique files and/or file names for each page on a site when you can just use AJAX, Flash, Lightbox or Div tags to show/hide content without refreshing the page for a better user experience?
A: There are several reasons why you would want to paginate your content. Here are 4 prime examples:
- SEO is important! You took the time to invest in an SEO consultant, now listen to their advice and their techniques so that your site can be properly optimized for search. If you don’t have pages dedicated to your keywords, how do you rank?

Congratulations to our client Cardinal Builders for being mentioned in the upcoming issue of Replacement Contractor Magazine. Cardinal Builders will be featured in the article To Your Credit. The story is about how contractors are quickly incorporating the new tax credits that are available to homeowners who make qualifying replacement window upgrades in 2009 or 2010 into their overall marketing strategies. View the article from Replacement Contractor Magazine featuring Cardinal Builders.
Two days after the 2009 Economic Stimulus Bill was signed into law in February, Cardinal Builders VP of Operations Mike Lelasher called Three Deep Marketing with an idea. He wanted to put a red CNN style breaking news banner across the top the Cardinal website with the headline:
Breaking News: President Obama signs stimulus plan into law, includes up to $1500 tax credit only for windows with .30 u-value or lower. All windows Cardinal Builders offer meet or exceed requirements to earn tax credit. Click here for more information.

I have heard a lot of discussion over the last year about nebulous leads, especially in the home improvement industry. What do I mean by “nebulous?” By definition, nebulous means indefinite. A nebulous lead is prospective buyer for your product that happens to be early in the educational buying spectrum. While they might not be at the stage of soliciting estimates yet, (and therefore won’t respond to traditional advertising), these prospects certainly have product needs on their mind and are gathering information preparing to do the project. Putting systems in place that identify these potential customers presents a tremendous tactical opportunity for savvy companies to make contact with these prospects before their competitors. These companies are then able to introduce their company and their products to these potential customers; building goodwill that can ultimately be translated into a sale when they are ready to buy.
Marketers typically identify this type of prospect by offering free information such as a whitepaper, or a free sample or through sweepstakes marketing efforts — the thought being that if an individual is interested enough to request a free window brochure, or sign up to win a house full of windows they will become a window buyer sometime in the foreseeable future. Conventional wisdom suggests that 85% of respondents to these types of offers are prospects for the product.
