Search Engine Optimisation
With Search Engines such as Google, Bing, Yahoo Baidu and so many others; search engine optimisation (SEO) is one of the hot topics on most website owners lips when it comes to marketing a business online.
In today’s online world, proper search engine optimisation is key to getting your content seen. From the art of crafting keyword-rich titles that grab attention in Google searches all the way down to ensuring you’re providing consistent quality information – SEO can give any website an edge on their competition.
Most people who have a website or trade online have used a search engine like Google, more often than not the top results shown at the top of the page are sponsored ads. However, below those paid advertisements you’ll find relevant organic content driven by SEO. These are a different form of marketing and is normally referred to as SEM (search engine marketing) or PPC (pay-per-click).
When it comes to search engine results, every position makes a big difference. The top spot on page one can receive up to 60% of all the total traffic for that query alone, almost double when compared with result number two and three. However, more than 95% of searchers won’t click beyond page one; meaning even small improvements can change the volume of traffic your business receives.
Pay Per Click
Paid-per-click (PPC) advertising is a great way to get your brand and business noticed immediately. It can be done on search engines such as Google, where advertisers have the chance to bid for relevant keywords and have their adverts appear in top positions of SERPs when users are searching with those terms. Social media platforms like Facebook or Instagram also offer options for PPC advertisement, as well as display banners on websites which may appeal more directly to certain target audiences.
With PPC advertising, you can drive traffic to your website quickly and easily. Platforms approve ads on the same day so that maximum exposure is almost instantaneous – regardless of whether it’s a text ad via Google search, an image through Instagram or even a video featured on YouTube, boosting visibility by utilising multiple platforms in different formats could be just what your brand needs.
PPC advertising does bring you an immediate response where as SEO is more of a long term marketing strategy. Additionally it should be duly noted that whilst PPC will get you an immediate response in your marketing campaign when you stop this form of advertising your will no longer receive visitors to you website.
