What’s the Difference Between Organic and Paid Search Engine Results?

Organic results appear on search engines for free. Where the results appear on the search results page is based on an algorithm that determines how relevant the results are to the terms being searched. You can increase your organic search ranking through a number of on and off-page SEO efforts. Paid results are results that a company or advertiser has paid to appear on the search engine results page. Paid results use a keyword bidding method to appear on the page and then pay for each click their ad receives. Paid results appear before organic results on the search engine results page.

Pay-per-click (PPC) is a form of digital marketing in which advertisers pay a fee each time one of their ads is clicked. It is a way to buy visits to your website, rather than attempting to “earn” them organically.

1. You set your budget & control costs 2. You only pay when an interested pers clicks on your ad 3. You can reach your target consumer at the right time with an ad 4. PPC can show results quickly 5. Results are measurable and provide a wealth of useful data

Small businesses often overlook all the great benefits of digital marketing because they don’t have the staff or the time to do so. However, digital marketing is extremely important for all businesses, including small and local ones. Digital marketing allows you to reach customers that are actually searching for the services you offer, rather than hoping that a local TV ad reaches potential customers. SEO and PPC efforts often provide much better leads, and at a lesser price. At EMSC, we can take care of all of your digital marketing needs, from building a new website to running your social media accounts, so that you can focus on your business. We are able to provide you with a customizable digital strategy, meaning that the budget that you have for your digital marketing is optimized to the fullest extent.

Crawling and indexing are two distinct steps in a process where search engines locate, file, and rank web content. Crawling is the initial discovery stage, where “spiders” scour the internet looking for new content. Once pages have been crawled, the next phase is indexing. Indexing is the organization and storage of pages that have been crawled. If a page is indexed, it becomes a contender to show as a search result for relevant queries.
