Search Engine Marketing

Filed under: sharing — by pankajj @ 6:52 pm

Search Engine  Marketing, also called SEM,  is generally identified as the paid marketing using search engines like, Google, Yahoo, MSN. Internet Marketing is blown over by consulting firms that claim to have expertise managing SEM for you. I would like to share a few insights from my understanding and interactions  with these consulting firms. But, first, would like to know your view point and if any specifics we can discuss here.

Feel free to leave a comment and we shall take the discussions in the following article.


  1. My experience is most of the so called SEM companies have average skillset and charge a bomb…

  12. I find that you get what you pay for for SEM/SEO. There are a lot of companies out there that charge a small set fee, and do minimal good.

  13. I always think that SEM, like SEO, is best conducted not by an external company but by a diligent webmaster with time to research and study the markets.

  14. I think it is better to learn from our own and do SEM by ourselves.

  15. To avoid confusion in the minds of newcomers,
    SEO = search engine optimization.

    It’s a subset of SEM = search engine marketing,
    which also includes PPC (pay per click).

    SEO is about 2 main things:
    – on page optimization
    – off page optimization

  16. Most people aren’t familiar with the general term SEO,
    especially small business owners

  17. What is interesting to me is that SEM has become mainstream and that colleges are now offering degrees in this.

    Big business are firing people who know how to run specific parts of big business web sites

  19. SEO is very important for anyone trying to rank in search engines that is for sure. Many people tell you different things, but what worked for my for my 35 plus sites is content, links and domain age. I have found out that when you have good content, some links to each one of your pages you have half battle win already. Then as your domain ages, your ranks getting higher and stronger 🙂
