“The Decimal Classification introduced the concepts of relative location and relative index which allow new books to be added to a library in their appropriate location based on subject. Libraries previously had given books permanent shelf locations that were related to the order of acquisition rather than topic.”
The Dewy Decimal System.
In 1873, Melvil Dewey was hired by Amherst College to manage the Amherst library, specifically to reclassify its growing collection. Instead of utilizing the standard methods of the time, Dewey set out to revamp how texts were categorized.
Over the course of three years, Dewey developed and put…
For some odd reason, one of the things I enjoy most about my job working in pharmaceutical advertising is the daily ability to research and understand search trends.
I love this because it is a window into the human mind. The way people speak to Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc., is a direct window into how people:
Now I say this because my job affords me the ability to have strategic conversations with major pharmaceutical brands to determine what content will go on their websites…
If you work in the pharmaceutical advertising industry you know that once summer hits, the tactical planning season is upon us. For some people, the summer means vacations, planning trips with friends and family, or hanging out under the sun on a lazy afternoon grilling burgers and drinking a bottle of suds.

Lately, I have been digging some classical cello which leads me to a lesson, we in the pharmaceutical marketing industry need to take: complexity fills our industry yet deceptive simplicity is the goal.
In a recent podcast of “Song Exploder” Yo-Yo Ma, perhaps the world's most celebrated cellist, took apart one of the most famous cello pieces ever written, Cello Suite #1 in G Major: Prelude.
In the podcast, Yo-Yo Ma notes the following on the opening sequence of Bach’s Prelude:

As a content strategist working in the pharmaceutical market, I find myself constantly thinking about user search pathways. Understanding how target audiences find your content is a key concern to developing and evolving a branded or unbranded content strategy.
With this in mind, I want to use this series to talk about search intent and how it impacts website content strategy/architecture.
For too long, the majority of people have assumed incorrectly that Google and the major search engines that fall in line still adhere to the sentiment that keywords are king. This just isn’t true anymore and for good reason.
