The Web is undergoing changes at an unprecedented pace and so are markets and businesses.
Organizations in the past were satisfied with their pretty looking and content rich
websites and web pages. However, it was soon understood by companies worldwide that a website was not
enough. It needed to be promoted! Websites that were not well promoted eventually turned into
just electronic brochures and cost centers delivering no real value. Soon the quest for targeted
traffic began and slowly companies started looking for Internet marketing tools and media.
There is no better medium in the world than promotions on search engines like Google,
Yahoo!, MSN and AltaVista. The traffic that these search engines generate in a month is probably
equal to a whole country’s population! The business potential of search engine promotions is unimaginable.
However, is being registered with leading search engines enough? What if your rank on important
keywords gets you on the 700 th page on search results? Needless to say,
being present on the first 2-3 pages on critical keywords for your business
is essential to harness the true power of the World Wide Web. Here you step
into the realm of Search Engine Optimization (or SEO) and
Search Engine Rankings.

consumer or business person searches the Web through either
a text box or by clicking through a directory hierarchy,
they are in hunt mode. This mode is unique because it
indicates that the person is looking for information,
usually of a direct or indirect commercial nature. Marketers
understand that this hunt mode means that the searcher may
very well be somewhere in the buying cycle, researching a
product or service to try and satisfy an immediate need or
future need. That makes search engine results some of the
best sources of targeted traffic, whether that traffic
originates from "organic" unpaid search listings or paid
traffic is a non-intrusive method of Internet marketing. The
majority of online and offline advertising intrudes on the
audience, interrupting their activities. Search is unique in
tapping a searcher at the exact moment they are seeking
knowledge or a solution. Searchers are on a mission it's
traffic originates from a voluntary, audience-driven search.
This means the visitors from a search results link have not
only selected your listing from among your peers, but chose
the search query that resulted in your listing being shown.
traffic results from a fixed inventory of searches. To truly
qualify as search engine traffic (or pure search traffic), the
search must be one that the searcher initiated as a search (
say via Google ), either by clicking a search link in a
directory style portal ( say Yahoo ) or by filling out a
search query box.
engine marketing (achieved from SEO) combines the best
practices of technology, usability, copy/linguistics and
online PR. This is because many search engines base their
relevancy algorithms on a combination of the text they see on
a page or site, combined with external elements such as links
and user behaviors/preferences.
To leverage the power contained within this targeted traffic
source, marketers must understand how to effectively use
both paid Pay per click or PPC and organic SEM popularly
known as SEO and what they can expect each methodology to
