General Search Engine Marketing FAQs
What is Search Engine Marketing?
Search engine marketing in it's simplest form is an Internet marketing strategy that leverages search engines to drive relevant traffic to one's web site. The overall goal with a search engine marketing campaign is to attain top search engine positioning for the keywords that best represent the products and services you sell.
What kind of Search Engine Marketing services does All Web Promotion provide?
Currently, our primary search engine marketing services include 3 Search Engine Optimization packages (SEO Intelligence Report, Standard SEO Package, and Premium SEO Package), and Pay Per Click Management.
What are the primary differences between Search Engine Optimization and Pay Per Click?
Search engine optimization (SEO) is a marketing strategy that targets a search engine's organic search listings and is the process of combining proven techniques, such as those used in web site design, layout, HTML programming, and web site submission with a thorough understanding of what the top search engines are looking for.
Pay Per Click advertising (PPC) on the other hand is a marketing strategy that targets a search engine's sponsored listings and is a process of managing multiple variables such as a monthly budget, costs per click, positioning, competitors positioning, and ad copy in a way that delivers the very best results for your ad spending.
What are Organic listings?
Organic listings are those listings that the search engines have found relevent for a particular search query. These listings can been influenced through search engine optimization services.
What are Sponsored Listings?
Sponsored listings are those listings that are purchased. These listings, in most cases, are found above organic search listings and are determined by the monetary amount each advertiser is willing to pay (per each click).
Should we have a Search Engine Optimization and a Pay Per Click campaign?
Absolutely! Taking advantage of every opportunity to reach your audience is not only a smart, but a good business practice too.
How will Search Engine Marketing benefit our company website?
Search Engine Optimization FAQs
Search Engine Marketing in general has the ability to deliver large amounts of targeted search engine traffic because, unlike other advertising, your website’s listing will only appear if the query is some how relevant to the products and/or services you provide.
In addition, Search Engine Marketing can be used as a branding tool and integrated in with your other marketing ventures.
What is Search Engine Optimization?
Search Engine Optimization targets organic positioning and is the process of combining proven techniques, such as those used in website design, layout, HTML programming, and website submission with a thorough understanding of what the top search engines are looking for. Search Engine Optimization is dependant on the search engines and their ability to find, index, rank, and re-rank websites.
What are spiders, crawlers, and robots?
Spiders, crawlers, and robots are all terms used to describe a search engine’s tool for finding and indexing websites.
How many pages on our website should we optimize?
Every page on your website is an opportunity for you to target search engine traffic and therefore we recommend that you take advantage of this and optimize every page within your website.
What are the benefits of having All Web Promotion assist in our website Optimization?
Well, first of all we maintain a professional staff of highly-trained search engine optimization account managers. We have the knowledge and the resources needed to get your web site’s optimization off the ground, and to maintain it for high positioning month after month.

For this reason, our team will frequently attend search engine related seminars where we are constantly updating our training and ensuring that we are only practicing safe Search Engine Optimization techniques.
We are managing our own Optimization campaigns, can All Web Promotion take control?
Yes. If you are currently maintaining your own Search Engine Optimization campaigns, but would rather outsource the maintenance to us than we can certainly accommodate.
Is there a limit to the number of keywords we can have?
We have no minimum or maximum keyword limitations. We will manage as many keywords as necessary to make your Search Engine Optimization campaigns successful.
Can All Web Promotion guarantee me top organic positioning?
No. We can not, nor any other Search Engine Optimization company, guarantee top organic positioning. Organic positioning is determined solely upon the search engine and its relevancy algorithm.
How long will it take before we see results?
Indexing and positioning is dependant on the search engines and their ability to find, index, rank, and re-rank websites so there is no definite answer.
On average we estimate that it will take anywhere from a month to two months (pending on each particular search engine) before your website is found and properly indexed. In addition we estimate another half month to a month before we begin to see positive results.
It is important to remember that there are many variables that may affect this timing, a few being the particular industry that your company is in and the competition that your keywords are up against.
Can All Web Promotion provide us with Search Engine Optimization references?
Pay Per Click FAQs
Yes, upon request we can provide a list of references of a few of our current Search Engine Optimization clients. Please note that we may not be able to provide you with detailed “client-privileged” information such as budget, monthly or yearly costs, keyword search phrases, and marketing goals or strategies.
What is Pay Per Click?
Pay Per Click advertising targets the sponsored listings and is a process of managing multiple variables such as a monthly budget, costs per click, positioning, competitors positioning, and ad copy in a way that delivers you the best results for your ad spending.
How much does each click cost?
This is really an open ended question and depends on multiple variables such as the amount that your willing to pay for each click, the positioning that you want to attain, the number of listings your competing against, but mostly your overall monthly budget.
In general, clicks will cost anywhere from $0.05 to $100.00 or more. We recommend that you set a monthly budget and allow us to manage your campaign accordingly. With this type of custom management, our account managers will be able to place you in the best positioning possible at any given day throughout the month without over-spending.
What are your Pay Per Click monthly fees?
Our monthly Pay Per Click fees are $199.00 plus 15% of your total monthly search engine spending.
Is there a limit to the number of keywords we can have?
We have no minimum or maximum keyword limitations. We will manage as many keywords as necessary to make your Pay Per Click campaigns successful.
How much should we budget each month for Pay Per Click advertising?
This again depends on many uncontrollable factors such as the industry your business is in and its competition, not to mention any specifications that you desire (for instance your company may want to be in the top 3).
Our suggestion is to initially budget what your company can afford to and update it as we move forward. Our account managers will perform all of the research necessary and provide you with a selection of appropriate keywords. We will then maintain each with the best possible positioning allowed by your budget.
We are managing our own Pay Per Click accounts, can All Web Promotion take control?

We will always do our best to inform you of anything that may be potentially harming your Internet success, but in the end our responsibility is to provide you with the best in search engine traffic.
How long will it take before we see results?
Unlike Search Engine Optimization, paid listings will appear within minutes of going live. Overall, we do our best to maintain a 2-day turn around from the time you say “go” to when we are actually ready to go live. This time is dependant on the amount of interaction needed between both parties and possibly the search engine’s editorial team.
