SEO in the Latin American market [Podcast]
What do you think of regionally oriented SEO campaigns? Latin America is one of the few markets where a single language is spoken in multiple countries on two continents, yet cultures, currencies and technologies can vary widely.
Creativity is needed to master the challenges of regional work. We’re here in person today to speak to Diana Martins, an SEO analyst at Hostgator who offers shared, reseller, virtual private server and dedicated hosting.
Diana joins Loren Baker, founder of Search Engine Journal talk about the challenges and opportunities of a targeted and successful campaign in Latin America.
“Localization is very important because creating the content itself is a challenge. You cannot rely solely on the translation as you may say something that is inappropriate in another language. It is easy for the user to see when reading translated content. “
– Diana Martins
Her goal as an expert in search engine optimization is to create innovations by “creating difference”. Turn it on now.
