Why don’t you value the website searcher?

Biznology

I’ve written before about how most marketers are missing the boat by ignoring people who search on their own website. Most marketers wouldn’t dare ignoring people who search on Google, but once they come to your site, you ignore them. I say that you ignore them because most marketers have no team (or even a person) working on website search, even though they have people devoted to search marketing. If you need motivation, try thinking about who your website searchers are.
