Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) vs Pay Per Click (PPC)

What’s the difference?
‘Search Engine Optimisation’ or ‘SEO’ is essentially the process of ensuring that your website ranks as highly as possible on the first page of the organic (free) search engine listings, particularly Google which accounts for almost 90% of all UK searches. ‘Pay Per Click’ or ‘PPC’ marketing involves paying for, or sponsoring, the results for particular search terms. These paid-for listings stand out at the top of, and at the side of, the search results.

Which should I do?
In short, both. What can get you to the top of the organic listings is a website that is most relevant to the people who are looking for the product or service you are promoting, that means amongst other things well-written, relevant and localised content – these things, along with clear and consistent calls to action are also going to make your pay per click campaign successful. Pay per click campaigns can bring instant success and also compliment even the highest organic listing positions – some people are drawn to the sponsored listings and some only trust the organic listings.

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)

Google has firmly secured their place at the top of the search engine market (88%) despite the enormous marketing campaigns of competitors such as Bing (6%) and Yahoo! (3.5%), in our belief the reason for this is not down to marketing at all, it is due to the fact that their search results are so relevant – people actually find what they are looking for at the top of the first page – wait, this is where you want your site to be! They do this by continuously updating their algorithm (eg the infamous Panda and Penguin updates) to ensure they are up-to-date and more importantly to rule out any ‘black hat SEO’ techniques that have emerged, such as content spamming and link-building.

This is all very technical, but in simple terms Google has an almighty team of the brightest people and the most powerful computers working hard to ensure that ‘SEO’ can only mean building well-coded and structured websites and writing relevant content through honest hard work and attention to detail. Even if some companies in Grantham are ‘getting away with it’ today, tomorrow could be the day when the next update is released and they drop from position 1 down to somewhere in the depths of page 5!

Google provide a series of excellent free software (eg Analytics and Webmaster Tools) which enables us to monitor the performance of websites and importantly how they interact with Google and other search engines, social media platforms etc in great detail. Obviously they too have access to this anonymous data and use it to refine their search results further.

There is no simple answer to how you should achieve the above but we would be delighted to review your current website, discuss your specific requirements and advise an appropriate plan of action

Pay Per Click (PPC) Campaigns

Pay per click works like a word auction, we bid for the words and phrases that are relevant and you pay the bid price when someone having searched for one of your words or phrases clicks on your listing in the search engines and gets to your website. Again, Google is by far the most popular pay per click provider and generally speaking the higher the bid the higher position achieved, although other factors such as ad quality and landing pages affect position.

This sounds very simple, but in reality a great deal of work needs to go in to each campaign to ensure that it generates enough enquiries per click – the right keywords and phrases must be used and (possibly more importantly) non-productive keywords and phrases must be excluded to avoid wastage. Also the landing page on your website must be simple, concise and relevant, with clear and prominent calls to action. Furthermore, research must be done to ensure that there is a market for the product or service and also to investigate what the competition are doing.

If a campaign is launched without all aspects being carefully planned and considered it is very easy to spend more money than you earn from the resulting sales. In our experience, clients who have tried and failed with Google Adwords either haven’t planned the campaign properly or are trying to sell a product or service that is not competitive. There are no two ways about it, Google Adwords works and our clients in Grantham are generally enjoying a cost to sale rate of around 10% – some are demanding more clicks than there is search volume!
