Pay per Click advertising (PPC) and Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
When it comes to search engine marketing, you can basically break it down into two camps: paid and ‘free’. In reality, both camps can be labeled as paid advertising.
What’s difference in these two types of marketing?
Pay per click advertising (PPC, 'sponsored links' on the top, or usually the right hand side of the search engine results pages), generally, has a more short term goal in mind in that it is great at generating highly targeted traffic to your website on a cost per click basis. Results from a pay per click advertising program are seen almost immediately and the control of cost is highly flexible making this form of search engine marketing attractive for any size of business. You are basically paying for quality website visits based upon keywords that are highly relevant to your business and the geographic areas you do business in. Click here to learn more!
Search engine optimization (SEO, 'organic' or 'natural' results: website links on the left hand side of the search engine results pages) has a more long term goal in mind and it also generates highly relevant traffic to your website. However, the difference with search engine optimization is that the results are not seen immediately but take anywhere from 3 months to 6 months, or more. Using search engine optimization as a website marketing strategy requires more an investment up front, but the results, with some ongoing maintenance, can be long lasting amounting to a lower cost per visit, in the long run, to your site.
