What is Search Engine Marketing?

Search engine marketing is what helped Google become an economic giant, generating $19 billion per year from the platform. Do you see those paid Adwords listing at the top of your Google search results? That’s Search Engine Marketing in a nutshell: deploying ads on Adwords and Microsoft’s search engine, Bing.

The bid price is determined by the other bidders and quality signals such as relevance of ad and website to the keyword (this is why you shouldn’t do search engine marketing work on a website that doesn’t already have information about the keywords on it).
