Big Red SEO’s Beginner’s Guide to LinkedIn Ads, Part 1

LinkedIn for Omaha SEOIf you’re running both AdWords and Facebook ads and you’re looking for another potential lead generator with a twist, Big Red SEO suggests you check out LinkedIn Ads. Since there are a lot of ins, a lot of outs, a lot of what-have-yous associated with this method of advertising, this post series will give you a rundown of LinkedIn Ads’ essential features and best practices to get you started. Here we go!

Should you advertise on LinkedIn?

First things first, you should decide whether advertising on LinkedIn would benefit your company. Since LinkedIn is primarily a business professional network, ask yourself if the service or product you provide would be of interest to business owners or other working professionals that use the site.If the answer is yes, and you can succinctly answer why LinkedIn users would benefit from knowing about your business, then advertising on LinkedIn is probably something you want to look into further.

Who’s going to see your ad?

Again, LinkedIn users are a pretty specialized bunch. They’re on the site to network, better their careers, and connect with business partners, among other things, so once you have an ad on the site, those are the kinds of people who are going to be looking at it.

As far as how many LinkedIn users see your ad, the answer is pretty much all of them. Best of all, you can also get traffic from LinkedIn’s partner network, which includes The New York Times, BusinessWeek, and CNBC. People in your network and outside of it will be able to see all the ads you post.

Choosing your target

An interesting feature of LinkedIn Ads is the ability to pinpoint who you want to see your ad. You can target based on company size, industry, title, and geographical area, so things can get specific really quickly. For instance, you could choose to have your ad shown to CEOs of tech companies with 501-1000 employees in Omaha if you wanted. This is a cool feature because it allows you some control in focusing your advertising budget toward those who would really benefit from seeing your ad.

How to Use 301 Redirects for SEO and Not Lose Sales

When you run a business website, there will definitely be times when you need to retire certain pages or move them to new URLs. When this happens, though, you don’t want to simply delete a page and create a new one, because that’s bad for your search engine optimization (SEO) efforts–once you delete a page, any search engine trust and authority that’s associated with that page goes with it, and you’re stuck back at square one. This authority takes time to build up, so it’s a big deal when you have to start over. In order to maintain a URL’s
