Hi all, the "PR" in the post stood for "Public Relations", not "PageRank", but since we've got there... @cheap seo service - if you study some pages with high PR, you will notice that their authority has probably come from pagerank sculpting, rather than displaying any good content. Which means that when or if you decide to link an external page, look for the one that will provide your readers/visitors with added value. There is a post on my main blog about Arcadelt's madrigal, and the pages I linked to from the post, are not particularly high on PageRank. But I keep seeing people clicking on them from the article, which means that they find both article and links useful to them. This makes up for the post's overall value. @SEO - agree with you, although it is good to have a PageRank, let alone a good PageRank (4 upwards), particularly if you are making a site on your own. And if you get to achieve PR10, this will mean two things: 1) your site is ueber-popular and visitors aren't just going to drop off one sunny day; 2) you can start a new project with a PR10 killer site under your belt. Hope this helps, thanks for all comments :-)

@search engine optimisation - Social Media Optimisation is necessary when the client is already using certain Social Media channels. If they don't, then we're certainly talking of Social Media Marketing, which will entice understanding what channels are appropriate for the client's needs. @seo services Los Angeles - thanks a lot! I am blogging proactively at the company blog, it is displayed in a Spring Widget on the right hand side on this blog. @Jaimie - Hi, there is an overlap of SEO and Online PR/Social Media services. For instance, I notice that companies recommend blog marketing as a part of SEO packager, whereas I would certainly see it as a part of Online PR package. But offsite promotion is becoming increasingly important, that's true. Thanks for all comments!

Hi Stuart, It was interesting to read your and others' reviews of the night. Unfortunately, I didn't follow the debate, although I read one article earlier yesterday which, I understand, has sparkled the talk. My response is here, if you don't mind me sharing it: http://www.avidadollars.com/2009/02/seo-online-pr-and-link-building-where-the-difference-lies-.html My view generally is that it may be difficult for PR to walk the walk against SEO because SEO is the part of Digital Marketing 'package', while PR, despite moving into the online world, still seems to remain connected more to Journalism and traditional Media. This doesn't mean, however, that PR cannot learn to write press releases with keywords in mind ;-) What may happen, I think, is the further segmentation of PR (very much like it has happened with traditional and online Marketing). Anyway, thanks a lot for bringing this up to everyone's attention.
