Bookings Rise in Q1 2013
In the first quarter of 2013, Acquia reported its bookings grew by 52% compared to the same quarter in 2012, the company announced at the biannual DrupalCon event this week. Acquia noted much of the growth came in the life sciences, high tech, media, government and higher education industries.

Released today during the Music Biz 2013 event, a new infographic from digitalmusic.org, the home of music business association NARM’s digital initiatives, is giving bands, record labels, physical and digital music retail outlets, and other music companies a crash course in search engine optimization (SEO). Supported by Acquia and titled “Search Engine Optimization for Music Websites,” the infographic walks readers through the basics of how search engines such as Google and Bing work, then provides a series of easy-to-implement tips including the S.T.A.C. (Structure, Topicality, Content, Authority) method, website dos and don’ts, and monitoring strategies that can be used to create a “web of authenticity” that connects their site to other reputable ones on the web, leading to higher search engine results and increased business.

“Whether you’re an up-and-coming band, an established record label, or any other company in the music business, it’s critically important that people be able to find you quickly and easily, and chances are they are going to use a search engine to do it,” said Bill Wilson, Vice President of Digital Strategy and Business Development for NARM/digitalmusic.org. “As DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) compliance forces illegitimate sites down in the rankings, it is crucial for official, licensed sites to implement proper SEO techniques so they can take over the newly vacant spots at the top. This infographic visualizes the steps that must be taken to do so, allowing legitimate sites to easily create connections that will give them the visibility they need to make an impact on the industry.”
“Nielsen’s Global Trust in Advertising report says the fourth most trusted source of information by online consumers is a branded web site. However, the approach of “build it and they will come” simply doesn’t work, especially in the music industry, where millions of artists fight for the attention of music fans,” said Chuck Fishman, media, entertainment and publishing director for Acquia. “Acquia supports digitalmusic.org’s ‘Search Engine Optimization for Music Websites’ infographic because it provides critical and invaluable web development best practices to artists, labels and other music-related businesses, so their sites are easily discoverable by music fans.”

Acquia is joining DigitalMusic.org’s membership in support of its mission to advocate, educate and organize on behalf of the entire digital music ecosystem. Acquia’s passion for connecting performing artists and fans is rooted in its work helping power the digital strategies for many of the industry’s biggest brands, including Warner Music Group and Sony Music Entertainment. Acquia will be present on two work groups, helping to set industry best practices and standards around digital marketing and digital asset management.

The infographic is available for free and can be viewed at http://www.narm.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/digitalmusicorgSEOInfo.pdf.
