SEO VS SEM

sem-vs-seo

Whether you know it or not, there are many differences between SEO and SEM. SEM, or search

 

engine marketing, is focused on choosing the appropriate keywords to invest advertising money in hen

 

you want to show up in the paid search results on Google and other search engines. On the other hand,

 

SEO, or search engine optimization, is based on organic search results, or getting to the top of the search

 

results when a user actually types in those keywords. By using both SEO and SEM, your business can

 

prosper.

 

Overall benefits:

 

– Both SEO and SEM attract customers, but use different strategies to do so.

 

– SEO focuses on bringing your company’s sales site in line with what search engines desire.

 

– SEM is based off of creating fast and clear advertisements and keywords that potential

 

customers will type into those search engines.

 

Downsides:

 

– Staying on top of search engine results can be very costly. Google and similar search engines

 

update their algorithms often.

 

– Even a small change to these algorithms can push your page even five pages further down the

 

listings than previously.

 

– SEO requires you to stay on top of what uses want.

 

– If certain keywords that normally allow prospecting customers to find your site become

 

surprisingly popular, your site will again be pushed back. So, companies such as Bing and Google

 

have been utilizing bidding strategies; The more you pay, the more your site is exposed to the

 

world!
