What is search marketing?

Search marketing is a digital marketing tactic used to gain online presence and traffic from paid and unpaid (organic) strategies on search engines like Google, YouTube and Bing. Paid search marketing includes PPC (pay-per-click) and unpaid search marketing includes SEO (search engine optimisation).

Integrating SEO and PPC

Although the two main search marketing services (SEO and PPC) are different approaches, each compliment the other when integrated into a single digital marketing strategy.

  • Quick results can be achieved with PPC, whereas SEO is a longer process (can take up to 6 months to see significant results).
  • Combined, they enable more traffic and exposure in both the paid results (at the top of the page) as well as in the organic results.
  • Utilising both SEO and PPC results in more SERP (search engine results page) real estate, meaning there’s more chance your results will be clicked.
  • Tests can be conducted for potential high-value keywords using PPC, before committing time (and money) on optimising for competitive keywords.
  • Insight and data are developed from both angles. More data can then be analysed and better decisions made for both SEO and PPC.
  • The volume of potential PPC traffic allows for split testing on landing pages to optimise for conversions and get the most out of both paid and organic traffic.

What is SEO?

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is the process of increasing the quantity and quality of organic traffic to your website by increasing the visibility of your web pages in search engines like Google.

What is paid search (PPC)?

Paid Search is a pay-per-click digital marketing tactic where companies can advertise on search engine results pages (SERPs) like Google and Bing. When a potential customer is searching for a keyword you’re bidding for, they can find your ad and click onto your site (you will only pay once they click).

What is the difference between SEM and search marketing?

Search engine marketing (SEM) refers to paid search activities (PPC). Whereas search marketing is used as an umbrella term for both paid search (PPC) and unpaid search activities (SEO). Both are digital marketing tactics for increasing a brand or product’s visibility in search engines like Google.

What is a search engine?

A search engine is a software that searches a database of information according to the user’s query. The search engine provides a list of results that best matches the user’s query. Examples include Google, Bing, App Stores, Amazon and so on.
