Figured out a way to make sure your company/brand/service comes out at (or least near) the top for online searches? If not, your new best friend should be the head of your IT department because search-engine listing optimization continues to be all the rage online. A recent study adds fuel to the fire, showing an expected 15% increase this year (among tech vendors) in using search- engine listings as a way to push product. The 2005 IT Marketing Trends Study, conducted in November 2004 by TechTarget, draws from a combined list of 11,866 tech marketing professionals provided by (TechTarget subsidiary) Bitpipe and Sam Whitmore's Media Survey. Among the surveyed companies, 282 were tech vendors with direct control for their marketing budgets; the rest were direct marketing, advertising or PR agencies working with technology accounts.
