Razvan Gavrilas talks with Jason Barnard about user intent and brand mentions.
I start badly by getting his name totally wrong. But Razvan is kind and (I think) he forgives me once I call him a genius. Razvan then kindly goes through the three types of keyword – know, go, do / informational, navigational, transactional… and helps me make better sense of them, how to include them more intelligently in your content – in short what to do, what not to do and how to best exploit the three types. He also agrees with Kate Toon – getting rid of churners is a good plan. Razvan makes the same point as Andrea Volpini – that when using machines to do SEO, the human remains essential and that there is a dance between humans and machines. We then move onto measuring brand and product mentions, including sentiment, and using context to disambiguate.
