Wikipedia and Social Media Event in Connecticut January 9th

Besides a couple of national search marketing organizations we belong to SEMNE, a search marketing organization based in the northeast USA. It was started by Jill Whalen who is among the most recognized “who’s who” in search marketing.

We hold informational events every couple of months.

The next event is here in Connecticut. If you’re in the greater Connecticut area this is a good chance to learn about Wikipdeia and other social media.

With its broad reach and permanent placement near the top of the search results, search marketers need to monitor what Wikipedia says about their company, brands, and industry. Mainstream media reporters, financial analysts, bloggers and other websites frequently borrow content and get ideas from Wikipedia.

At this timely SEMNE event, Wikipedia administrator and search marketing consultant, Jonathan Hochman, will explain appropriate ways for businesses and organizations to interact with Wikipedia. We’ll look at several case studies, and answer all your questions.
