why not just use ppc
Why not just use PPC?

Only 27.7% of Google Users will click on a sponsored PPC link.

  • 72.3% of Google’s users choose a natural (SEO) result rather than a PPC result
  • 60.5% of Yahoo and MSN’s users choose a natural (SEO) result rather than a PPC result
  • However, when the results return a PPC and a natural result for the same website, click-thru rates increase by 15%

AllAboutGOD.com Case Study

Over 10 Million Visits in 2006

  • Nearly 3 Million Gospel Presentations in 2006
  • $250,000 Total Operating Budget in 2006
  • Even at 5 cents per visitor PPC would have cost AllAboutGOD.com $500,000 to reach 10 Million visitors and 3 Million Gospel Presentations
  • If we were very generous and agreed that the budget required to carry out our SEO marketing was $100,000 then PPC, at the very best rates, would have cost at least 500% more than SEO.

  • Long Tail Marketing
    • Less popular phrases in greater quantities are more effective than a few blockbuster phrases. Start HitTailing.
