WHAT IS SEARCH ENGINE MARKETING?
SEM (search engine marketing) is a digital marketing strategy that aims to increase the online visibility of websites on the search engine results page (SERP).
SEM strategy involves optimizing paid search ads with a specific goal in mind. To create a good strategy, you must understand how paid ad platforms work and effectively manage variables that affect performance, such as keywords, budget, and copy.
PPC, strategy starts with choosing the right keywords to bid on. Start by brainstorming brand terms, terms that describe your product, and even terms that describe your competition.
At the end of the day, when your keywords are chosen, and your account is structured, you still have to write good ads and "earn" the click. An ad is made up of a few components: Title, Display URL, and Description.

How SEM works
Search engines use complicated algorithms to ensure the most relevant results are returned for each search, including location and other available information.
In paid search advertising, sponsored ads appear at the top of and on the side of search engine results pages to gain more visibility and prominence than the organic results.
Let’s say that you are a customer looking for a product or service online. You go to a search engine and type in your search terms (also known as keywords).
In your search results page, you will come across various company ads whose keywords match the keywords in your search.
These ads appear in prominent locations on the page and the other search listings that match your keywords. The paid listings are highly relevant to your specific search, making it likely that you will click on them.
Now, look at how SEM campaigns work from the marketer’s perspective.
SEM networks are self-serve operations. Once a marketer selects a network, they can get a campaign up within a short period of time.
When setting up a campaign within an SEM network, the marketer is prompted to:
- Conduct keyword research and select a set of keywords related to their website or product
- Select a geographic location for the ad to be displayed within
- Create a text-based ad to display in the search results
- Bid on a price they are willing to pay for each click on their ad
Text-only ads are easy to produce. Marketers enter a headline, text for the body of the ad, a call-to-action, and a URL for the hyperlink.
Search engine marketing is considered by many to be the most efficient way to spend marketing dollars.
