Wakefield, MA, November 4, 2013 –SEMPO, the leading international, non-profit organization for the search and digital marketing profession, today announced the launch of the 9th Annual State of Search Survey.
SEMPO’s State of Search Report has been an industry stalwart for eight years, providing valuable data and insights regarding search strategy and tactics. The survey provides questions regarding channel-specific budget increases/decreases, objectives, and metrics. The two separate tracks of questions for advertisers and for agencies is a unique feature of the SEMPO Survey that has consistently generated interesting take-aways and discussions.
This year, the survey will introduce new features including:
- Mobile and Email Marketing questions to further gauge the expanding integration and evolving role of search with other digital content marketing channels.
- Major developments that were recently announced, such as Hummingbird and Keywords Not Provided.
The 2013 State of Search survey is open to SEMPO members and non-SEMPO members alike. Participants in the survey will receive a complimentary copy of the report as well as a chance to win an iPad 3.
