Top 10 takeaways from SES London 2012

Last week saw the annual SES (Search Engine Strategies) conference in 2012 where all the big names in search gave their view on the year ahead.

The overarching hot topics were probably Google + and SoLoMo (Social, Local, Mobile).

There are some good round-ups to be found online (e.g. Andrew Girdwood's blog and Kevin Gibbon's blog) so for now, here’s my (and my colleague Richard Lewis’) top 10 take-aways for you to think about.

(Apologies in advance if I haven’t given the right people the right credit, feel free to comment if I missed you off the list.)


Video: What happened at Digital Cream Dubai 2012?

Does the size of branded videos matter?

Marketers and content makers have been conditioned over time to believe that online video needs to be short and punchy.

This is based on the presumption that people have limited attention spans, and therefore longer-form content would be wasted - particularly on the multi-tasking Gen Y consumer.

But is duration really a key factor of successful adoption? And how about social sharing? Is the length of a branded video likely to affect people's willingness to share it?

In the space of 1,000 or more words, I can't promise to deal with all the answers, but hopefully you'll agree these questions merit further consideration before setting your content or advertising strategy.


What is social TV? Not Google TV or YouTube says NBC rep

Social TV is going to change the way we interact with everything. If you don’t think it’s coming, you're going to be in for a bumpy ride.

Contrary to popular opinion, NBC's Senior VP of Digital Jesse Redniss stated "GoogleTV is not social TV." He put YouTube in the same category as in his opinion they are mostly ways to highlight videos and consume content.

So what is social TV?

MENA Stats: Social media and sharing trends

It has been a year since social media helped spark demonstrations, protest and social-political revolution across the Middle East and North Africa.
