Search Engine Marketing




We offer Search Engine Optimisation and Marketing Services. We are based In Wolverhampton West Midlands. The following text is a basic guide to SEO and Marketing.



Why do I need Search Engine Marketing? My site will get picked up automatically won’t it?


The simple answer is yes, your site will probably get picked up automatically by search engines, but when the results for a search term can run into hundreds of thousands or even millions, how do you expect your customers to see your site if it isn’t in the first page or first few pages? This is where search engine marketing comes into play. There are two types of results returned when you make a search – organic and sponsored (Pay Per Click) results.




Organic Listings


Organic describes a search that returns results by indexing pages based on content and keyword relevancy. Sometimes this is called "pure" or "natural search" as it is supposed to be "untainted" by commercial payments or bids. This is in contrast to PPC (Pay per Click) listings ranked based on who paid the most money to appear at the top such as those on Google AdWords.
Google leads the way in championing natural or organic listings, with over 60% of the market share. Its primary focus has always been to return fast, highly relevant results based on the content of the page, the relevancy of links pointing to that page, and other "objective" criteria.

To make matters a little more interesting, the search engines regularly change the algorithms they use, meaning listings regularly change. This means achieving and keeping a high ranking requires regular monitoring of you site.
Good organic results are gained and enhanced through SEO - Search Engine Optimisation




Sponsored Listings


Pay per Click (PPC)or Sponsored listings brings traffic to a website through visitors clicking on an advert, every time the advert is clicked a charge is made to the advertiser. The advertiser bids on certain keywords to bring only relevant traffic to their website. Though to guarantee being at the top of the list you may have to spend a lot of money for popular keywords. You can however place a daily limit on your spend -  Through this process you can control the total level of your advertising budget.
You do not need to have your site optimised for PPC advertising to work, so if you are after quick results, or targeting very popular keywords, this may be the best option. Sponsored listings have always been clearly separated from the organic search results on Google. However, many other engines mix the two types of search without clearly showing which is which.




Guaranteed Top 10 Listing ?

There is no such thing as a guaranteed top ten listing. If a company makes such a guarantee, look for another company. With organic results no-one can guarantee you will get into the top ten.
So, how do some companies get away with making these promises? Well, one way in which an SEO firm can say this is because they are using Google Adwords or Yahoo Search Marketing (formerly Overture) which are pay-per-click engines. Here you bid on having your site listed at the top of the "Sponsored Matches" and when a visitor clicks on your link from the search engine you pay for it. SEO firms may also target little-used or very obscure keyword phrases that have very few search results for your site to compete against. An easy win for them can mean a big loss for you if none of your target audience uses the phrase to find your site. We will work with you and advise on finding the keyword phrases that will work for your business – not the ones that work for us.

Pay Per Click Advertising

This involves bidding for keywords and phrases - when a query is returned, the highest bidder for that keyword or phrase will see their results at the top of the sponsored results list. We can advise on PPC and also on monitoring the results, (remember you will also have to pay for curiosity click through's as well) so you only bid for keywords that are turning into viable leads giving a good ROI (Return on Investment.) more....
