Pay Per Click Breakdown

Pay per click, or PPC, is an advertising technique used on websites, advertising networks, and search engines. With search engines, pay per click advertisements are usually text ads placed near search results; when a site visitor clicks on the advertisement, the advertiser is charged a small amount. Variants include pay for placement and pay for ranking. Pay per click is also sometimes known as Cost Per Click (CPC).

While many companies exist in this space, Google Adwords and Yahoo! Search Marketing (formerly Overture) are the largest network operators as of 2006. MSN has their own PPC services MSN AdCenter. Other networks include Findwhat, Shopping.com, NexTag, BizRate and PriceGrabber. Depending on the search engine, minimum prices per click start at US$0.01. Very popular search terms can cost much more on popular engines. Read more…

Networking In Today's Market

Has networking become a lost art in today’s market?  I certainly think so and several business professionals certainly can agree. In an age where the internet can be the single lifeline of a business and the  pitfall of not having a internet presence can be tasted in the mouth’s of  investors who underestimated today’s market and what would be called” the changing of the guard” from old age advertising tactics like the phone book ad which died out in the stone age, to the new space age in which everybody is on the internet from the wife trying to find a new yoga spot and juice bar,the kids who want to find when the new Halo comes out , to granny wanting to find a new  local bingo hall.

Blogging For Search Traffic

September 22nd, 2009 Online Marketing Advisors No comments

For those who are everyday bloggers this article will be nothing new to them, but for those who are just starting out you may find this information helpful. Just what is blogging for search traffic anyway? This has a fairly simple answer, all this really means is that your blog post are meant to do two things. 1: Rank in the search engines, and 2: Turn those rankings into traffic. That sounds easy enough right? Well creating the article is the easy part, ranking in the search engines is another matter.  With some careful planing you could rank pretty well but it all depends on how you target your keywords.  The trick to ranking well is to be the first one to blog about a certain topic, for example the other day I did an article on the owners of My Therapy Journal the reason for this was because I like what they are doing, the other was I that I was pretty sure that after these guys got their few minutes of fame from the t.v. show Shark Tank their search numbers would be up. Within 5 minutes of posting the article it was ranked #3 for the keyword My Therapy Journal, and the traffic I got from it was pretty darn good. Now of course I did not receive any sales or new clients from this but that was not the point of posting the article, again the point was to produce more traffic to my site.

In my mind all traffic is good traffic no matter where it comes from, the more I can get the better it will be for the site. I’m sure the main question here is how do you get your article to rank so fast for those type of keywords? I’ll never tell, just kidding. The answer to this one is not that easy, but here are a few tips that should help when you are posting your articles. Read more…

Online Marketing: Is it really important?

September 14th, 2009 Online Marketing Advisors 1 comment

I talk to alot of people who either own a business or is thinking about starting one. It still amazes me how some companies really feel that they do not need to have a presence online. The justification for not pushing their business online is always that they are happy with the way things are going now. That’s great, if a business is already doing well without online marketing then what is the point of trying to get them to start? After all, word of mouth is still the most powerful form of advertising you can get, so what makes online marketing so important for a business who may not need it? Well, the answer is that although your business may doing good today without online marketing this may not be the case in the future. As a business owner you have to realize that times are changing and they  are changing at a speed which is leaving most businesses in the stone age. More and more local companies are going out of business due to the fact that they refuse to change with the times. Read more…

Online Marketing Advisors – Redesigned

We are proud to announce the new design of our website. It has been alot of trial and error working with the wordpress  format but we pretty much have everything we need in place. As you can see we have added a blog section to the site, however, we are having trouble removing the nofollow tags from the user comment links as well as the author. We want people to be able to post and get some link love for posting, but until we can figure out how to remove the tags it will have to stay that way for now. Read more…
