What is Paid Search?

Page Title

Otherwise known as search engine marketing or pay per click (PPC), paid search enables businesses to appear higher up search engine result pages (SERPs) for specific business related keywords, phrases or questions compared to organic results. 


Used correctly, paid search can be very cost effective at driving more "high purchase intent” traffic to your website, raising awareness and building reputation over a given period.

How Paid Search Works

Essentially an auction - the search engine will check if a search keyword matches keywords that advertisers are bidding on.  If so, the search engine will review the various elements including: specific keywords or phrases, budget, quality score of ad to determine where it will rank on the results page.  To get the most from your paid search various components need to be determined and optimised - keywords, location, budget, ad copy & landing pages. 

Benefits of Paid Search

It works fast - your ad will be seen almost immediately.  It can get you on the first page of Google search for your keyword depending on your bid. It raises awareness and reputation of your brand as Google only shows those with a high quality score* so it must be reputable.

*Quality Score = measurement of how relevant the keyword is to ad copy, relevant landing page vs original user search query.

  • Set up a number of ad sets to test various variables & optimise as the campaign runs
