Search Engine Web Marketing Gets Your Site Noticed

   By: Christopher J Enders

Search engine web marketing is, hands down, the best way to drive website traffic to your website. In the world of internet business, getting visitors to your website is critical and search engine web marketing does just that. There are literally tons of different strategies and marketing techniques that drive traffic to your website. Some are very effective while others sometimes produce less than desirable results.

There are two main methods of search engine web marketing and both are recognized as effective means for attracting qualified traffic from your target audience. In most instances, the traffic that is driven to your website via search engine web marketing consists of individuals who are looking for what you are offering and are ready to buy. The majority of internet shoppers use the search engines to find what they are looking for. This fact is what sets search engine web marketing apart from other methods of internet marketing and website promotion.

The two main methods for search engine web marketing are obtaining listings in the search engine results via search engine optimization and obtaining a listing in the search results using pay-per-click advertising. Search engine optimization can be a complicated process and sometimes requires professional consultation or professional search engine web marketing services to achieve satisfactory results. Because the competition on the internet is so rabid with great numbers of new competitors entering the internet frontier daily, it can be really difficult to achieve and maintain a good search engine ranking without using pay-per-click services. However, if you can secure a listing on the first three pages of the search engine results through search engine optimization, it truly is free advertising that will produce miraculous results for your internet-based business.

Some people steer clear of search engine optimization services because of the hesitancy of such consulting firms to guaranty results. The truth of the matter is, they really can't guaranty specific positioning in the search engine results because the search engines change their rules regularly and keep website owners and search engine web marketing professionals guessing about the best methods for achieving natural listings and a search engine ranking that is conducive to success for search engine web marketing.

If it is not possible to achieve and maintain a desirable search engine ranking using search engine optimization strategies alone, there is always the option of advertising through the pay-per- click search engine web marketing programs. While search engine optimization can boost your search engine rankings virtually expense free, pay-per-click advertising is a search engine web marketing tactic where you actually buy your way to the top. When using pay-per-click search engine web marketing, you bid on keywords that your target market uses to find the products, services or information that is displayed by your website. With the exception of Google which considers site popularity in ranking pay-per-click advertisements, pay-per-click programs rank search engine web marketing advertisements based on which ones are paying the most for the keyword.

The advantages of using pay-per-click search engine web marketing programs are:

1. You can get your website listed in search engine results

quickly.

2. You only pay for click-throughs to your website.

3. You have the advantage of attracting targeted traffic to

your website.

4. You can get your website listed at the top of the search

engines regardless of the competition.

5. You don't have to be concerned with the constantly changing

ranking policies of the search engines.

The disadvantages of using pay-per-click search engine web marketing programs are:

1. The bids on the keywords you most desire may be too high

for your pay-per-click search engine web marketing to be

cost effective.

2. Pay-per-click search engine web marketing campaigns have to

be well planned and constantly monitored to ensure that you

are not paying more than the value per visitor for click-

throughs to your website.

These minor disadvantages can be overcome to produce excellent results from your pay-per-click search engine web marketing campaign. Alternate keywords for niche markets can be used to lower the cost per click. Ongoing monitoring of your pay-per- click search engine web marketing program and good management skills can ensure that your advertising campaign is cost- effective. If you do not have the time to manage your pay-per- click campaign yourself, there are professional search engine web marketing companies that can provide campaign management services for you. A cost-benefit analysis will help you to choose the best search engine web marketing solution for your unique business.
