PPC vs. Organic SEO

Compare Search Engine Optimization with Pay Per Click Marketing
Pay Per Click Organic / Natural
Search Engine Marketing
Cost In 2007, 87%, or $6.75 billion of the total $7.75 billion spent on search engine marketing was spent on Pay Per Click Search Engine Marketing. PPC programs as a whole cost more than Organic Search Engine Optimization programs because the cost of keyword acquisition and cost per click climb as competition continues to increase. There are also additional costs for management services and management software as well as wastage commonly attributed to rampant click fraud. Only $1.05 billion of the $6.75 billion dollars spent on search engine marketing last year was spent on organic search engine optimization. The cost overall of an organic SEO program is much lesser than PPC programs because of the higher sales conversion. TTWM will keep your website optimized for the major search engines with at least 50 first page placements. There is no continued cost for every click made onto a link to your website. TTWM's search engine optimization programs are available for every budget for Local Businesses.
Search Patterns Search patterns reveal that less search engine users visit pay per click advertising sites than visit organic sites. In fact 4 out of 5 search engine users report that they never click on PPC results. More than 70% of search engine users report visiting organic listings daily by Forester Research. Reaching the top of the search results pages with the expertise of TTWM's organic search engine optimization plan is crucial because an eye tracking study showed that 70% of search engine users choose to visit websites that appear in the top 10 organic results.
Keywords Keyword pricing begins at $.25 but the average cost for a top keyword exceeds $7.30. Keyword costs increase at least 25% a year. One survey reported that 57% of respondents felt that they were paying too much for their chosen keywords and keyword phrases. Web Wise Media saves an average 25%-40% to their PPC clients by placing their website in top 3 position on Google and Yahoo Sponsored with Unlimited Clicks. TTWM's organic SEO plan begins with extensive keyword research that helps determine what words are most relevant to the advertiser’s product. Then, keyword-rich content is developed as needed in order to deliver the traffic they want to make conversions. This is followed by ongoing optimization of the websites code, structure, pages, titles, descriptions, links, forum posting and blogs postings, Directory submissions, etc. to perpetually enhance and focus search engine ranking results.
Click Through rate Further complicating the reduced click through rates of PPC when compared to organic search engine optimization, the overall conversion rate at the website is 3 times less than that of unpaid listings. Also, with the high cost of top keywords, many advertisers are paying more than $5 per click through and sometimes as much as $35 per visitor. Because there is much more potential targeted traffic through organic listings than through paid ads most often using longer and more targeted keywords strings but definitely also concentrating on bigger more competitive keywords, there is a greater opportunity for converting traffic into customers. Additionally, organic click through rates are 3 times more than paid listings. The conversion rate for organic listings is also approx 27% higher than paid listings.
ROI Only 11% of advertisers report achieving a higher ROI through a Pay Per Click Advertising Program than an Organic Search Engine Optimization program. Organic listings generate a higher ROI than PPC programs. Trends show that more sales result from organic search engine listings than paid sites, meaning that advertisers get more for their money when working with a talented organic search engine optimization company like TTWM.
Long Term results There is little or no long term results in PPC programs. Pay Per Click Programs can earn an advertiser an immediate boost in results but as soon as the budget runs out or the campaign ends the results stop. So depending on the product and the mark up %,PPC can be a very good source of immediate revenue, but any user needs to be very careful especially these days when bidding wars between clients for the top positions can be costly. Advertisers with organic search engine optimization plans developed by TTWM will reap the rewards of long term results as long as clients do understand and willing to wait sometime to get their ranking. These natural top 10 rankings don't come overnight. Through continual optimization for the search engines, websites designed through organic SEO continue to climb the search results rankings and generate more traffic long after their program has begun.

TTWM is a Search Engine Optimization, online marketing and website design company that has specialized in organic SEO since 2001. We can help an advertiser achieve their goal to drive significantly more targeted traffic to their website which will result in more conversions and a higher ROI.

Only 20% of search engine users will view a paid listing. 75% of search engine users report they feel organic listings are more relevant than paid listings. TTWM optimizes a website for maximum relevancy through extensive keyword research and keyword-rich content development that drives a website straight to the top of search engine results pages.
Fraud 3 out of 4 advertisers are victims of click fraud, where clicks onto links are perpetrated by an advertiser’s competitor to deplete the advertiser’s marketing budget. Estimates are that click fraud accounts for 15-30% of all clicks SEO companies employ “black hat” techniques like link farms, shadow domains, hidden text or doorway pages to drive traffic to websites. These questionable techniques can get a website delisted by the major search engines. At Web Wise Media, there is no risk of being penalized by a search engine. TTWM never has used and will never use “black hat” techniques.
