With 118 billion monthly US searches, search is no longer a channel, it is the medium in which business transacts. If you’re a marketer, advertiser, user interaction designer, business owner, or product manager, you can’t afford to think of search as a box to be checked or a task to be outsourced; you also need to be smart about incorporating search acquisition and SEO into your overall business strategy, including marketing and product development. This bootcamp session helps both technical and non-technical business professionals understand how to think like Google, so that findability is built into their strategy from the start.
