What is SEA or paid search?

For any business, being visible is a very real issue. How do you ensure that your customers can find you easily on search engines? How about if your advertisements get to the people when they search for a service or product similar to yours? You can do this with Google Ads‘ SEA or paid search.

What is paid search?

Web marketing is essential to increase the notoriety and visibility of a site. Search Engine Advertising (SEA) is the starting point of a good and efficient digital marketing strategy, because it is one of the best ways to position yourself quickly, in real time, on the targeted keywords, and to generate traffic

In order to ensure the visibility of a website, it is necessary to ensure a better strategy such as SEA or Search Engine Advertising. Being a system of advertisements, the SEA is based on targeted but paying services in order to appear in good position on the network of an advertising agency. It is also called sponsored links. The cost per click of paid referencing in social media like Facebook is much lower than via the Google Ads campaign system.

The paid referencing then consists in the purchase of keywords by auction. When a user performs a search with the purchased keywords, the ad is displayed in the areas selected by the advertiser. But, the position of the ad will still be determined according to the bids made by the competition and its quality.

Why use ATS?

By doing advertising campaigns with the SEA, here are the results obtained:
