1. SEO – I know this definition is very simplistic, however that’s not usually the case with college students and I could test to three interns, upon being asked the definition given an answer such as, “we learned something like that… I think. ”

Search engine optimization or (if you want to go by the acronym SEO) is the foundation of online marketing in the year 2011 and, most likely it will be just as important when we are 80 years old.

2. Landing Pagesâ€"landing pages are separate pages on the website targeted towards one or two keyword phrases for Google. Usually, you cannot get to these pages from the home site as, unless a very, very good writer wrote them, the pages are typically spammy in nature. this is also a facet of marketing that the aspiring marketing professional will have to learn simply because being able to style a webpage, yet still keyword stuff it takes a significant amount of talent.
