SEM involves increasing your website's visibility in search engine results pages (SERPs) via both SEO efforts (shaping website content to attract search engine spiders and visitors) and paid search advertising. It combines the latest search engine technology with online marketing techniques to help increase web traffic to a particular website or landing page, increase sales and generate leads and involves methods including:

  • Pay-per-click advertising
