What is Search Engine Marketing?

Search Engine Marketing uses two main strategies.

1) Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
SEO involves enhancing elements of your website, as well as off-site elements like metadata and metatarsi. Through this, we will maximize your site’s relevance and credibility through complex search engine algorithms. Strategic, well-executed search engine optimization effectively brings your site to the top of search results.

2) Pay-Per-Click Marketing (PPC)
PPC marketing allows a site to purchase “sponsored listings” on the side or top of the natural search results. When a searcher clicks through to your website, you are charged a predetermined fee.
