Search Engine Marketing (SEM) Services

STClassifieds provides SEM services as a form of internet marketing by promoting websites through paid advertisement, contextual advertising in search engines and their networks. In the use of SEM, sponsored listings with relevant keywords can serve to drive highly qualified sales leads to a website / your business. Not only are results are 100% transparent, measurable and accountable, this performance-based online advertising channel is also cost-effective (based on the pay per click / PPC model).

Within the PPC model, there are 3 kinds of payment methods – cost per click (CPC), cost per thousand impressions (CPM) and cost per acquisition (CPA). With SEM, advertisers will typically bid on keywords using CPC payment as they will only be charged when someone click on their ads.

There are two kinds of networks – the search network and the content network. For the former, your ads are triggered by targeted keywords and will appear under the sponsored listing in the search engines and their search partners. For the latter, your ads will appear on content sites which have opted in to the search network. It is often referred to as contextual targeting as your ads will only appear on sites that are relevant to your ads.

GA can help you track results all the way down to keywords levels, showing how much traffic each of the keywords bring to your website. A GA URL builder will enable you to input tracking codes into other search marketing campaigns via Yahoo or MSN platforms, too.
