What is SEO? Search Engine Optimisation & Marketing

SEO – Search Engine Optimisation is simply the process of making your website show up when someone enters a search query.   You achieve optimal results when the right content (web/landing page) is placed in front of the right eyeballs. i.e. people in your target market!

  • PPC  = Pay Per Click e.g. Google AdWords  – Paid Advertising
  • Search Engine Marketing (SEM) is PPC + SEO

A good way to think of this is SEO is helping your website show up for search terms (or keywords) in search engines rankings.  PPC is paying/bidding for your place in the same results.
