About Search Engine Marketing


In 2013, US businesses spent $22.4
billion dollars on search engine
marketing.
On average, search engines field more
than 16.9 billion search queries, or
two and a half searches for every
person on earth!
How Search Engines Work

Motto: The better the search
experience for the user - her or she
gets the information they need at
just the right the moment they need
it – the more users will be attracted
to that search engine.
Delivering the Experience



To achieve their goal of information delivery,
search engines need to gather information about
the billions of web pages on the Internet.
Spiders: This is done using automatic programs
called "bots" short for "robots," but also known as
"spiders."
Crawling: These "spiders" automatically crawl
around the Internet following links and gathering
information about the pages they find.
Delivering the Experience

Storage: Once a page has been crawled, the search
engine stores details about the page's content and
links both into and out of it in a massive database
called an Index.


The size of an Index database is proprietary!
Retrieval/Listing: The Index database is organized
in a proprietary way and there is away of finding
and listing information which is also propriety so
that the results for any of hundreds of millions of
search requests can be retrieved instantly and
which is why you get different results from each
search company.

Search Engine Optimization:
Organize for Search Engine Visibility

The most important element in assuring successful web
search is the PAGE TITLE (title tag).


It is used as the clickable headline for listings on the
search engine results page (SERP).



This is the key factor in ranking SERPs.
This is also the first thing a search will produce and a user will
see when they conduct an organic search.
It is used as the Favorites entry.
Use salient words in your titles – not generic ones, in
order to maximize your search engine mktg.

Search Engine Marketing

that are more likely to be used in a

Long Tail Words which are specific
terms that less likely to be used in a
search but produce more specific
results.

MARKETING ON THE
INTERNET: DISPLAY ADS
Sample Web Display Ad
Types of Display Ads
Traditional Banner Display Ad
Side-Bar Display Ad
Pop-Up Display Ad
Types of Display Ad Content



A static ad does not change when you look
at it - it is a single image.
An animated ad uses several different
images to give the appearance of motion;
they are usually in GIF format.
A rich media ad consists of audio or video,
or involves some programming with Java to
create a very interactive ad.

What Do Consumers Want in Display Ads?
Banner Ad Measures





Clicks: The amount of clicks a display ad received
Impressions: The number of times the display ad
has been seen by visitors
CTR: A click-through rate is the ratio between clicks
and impressions
Cost Per Sale: This is the amount spent per sale
and the figure is dependent on the cost of the
product or service itself that is advertised
Conversions: An HTML conversion tag is placed on
the website (or landing page) and tracks the amount
of conversions that have occurred which could be an
action like a registration or a purchase.
Impressions vs. Click
Seeing is Important Too!

Research by comScore has shown that two-thirds of Internet
users do not click on any display ads over the course of a
month and that only 16% of Internet users account for 80% of
all clicks. It also showed that the viewers who click tend to be
younger and less affluent than the people who don’t.
Social Communities:
Earned Media

Brand messages distributed in social communities
without direct cost to the company and (often)
without direct control. Starbucks Tweets



Gained when people share positive brand opinions and branded
content in their social community
Influence attributed to earned media is the most influential form of
marketing and advertising. Tweets Per Day Twitter Leaders
Word of Mouth (WOM): Passing along of opinions
about brands in the social network.


Influence Impressions: Innocuous comments in the social network
remind and reinforce brands – "On my way to Starbucks..." Estimated
256 billion every year – can spread!
Influence Posts: Publishing brand relevant content in the social
community. Opinion leader blog posts is one example.
Minority Product Content

A minority of people generate 80% of the impressions.
Take a look at the graphic below. 6.2% of the online adults
generate 80% of the influence impressions. 13.4% of the online
adults generate 80% of the influence posts. We call two groups
Mass Connectors and Mass Mavens.
Two Segments Produce 80% of
Online Content


Mass Connectors (6.2%), who create a
great number of impressions about brands and
services in social networks, like Twitter and
Facebook.
Mass Mavens (13.4%), who create and
share content about products and services in
other social channels such as YouTube, blogs,
forums, or ratings and review sites.

User Generated Content Campaign or
Participatory Advertising: Brands invite
consumers to engage and interact and create
sharable content about the brand.
Build Brand Personas: Brands create social brand
personas (social brands) in the social community that
participate in the conversation just like a person.

Brand Fans: Someone that is enthusiastic about a brand.
