Critical to the Financial Success of Any Business

Search Engine Marketing, in its most general definition, is the marketing practices/techniques used to attract a prospect to a specific website. Best practices utilize Paid Search, Cost-Per-Click (CPC), or Pay-Per-Click (PPC) as the foundation of any SEM campaign. These paid advertising programs are launched on the three largest search platforms: Google – Bing – Yahoo!, where over 97% of internet searches happen.
