SEO, Web Advertising and Web Marketing Defined

Palm Beach Image Factory embraces all facets of Web promotion, including SEO, Advertising and Marketing. What is the difference…in layman’s terms?

–    Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is founded in how a website is built; the text content of the site, the relevancy of the links and page titles, the “meta code”, the use of keywords relevant to the product/service, the use of relevant video, photos and social media to generate traffic to a website in order to improve its page rank in the major search engines, including Google, Yahoo, and Bing. SEO can also include link-sharing, listings on portal sites, directories and sites that list specific categories of business/product, along with other methods to get the website or product listed and linked-to as often as possible. SEO is the cornerstone of a good web presence and needs to be maintained in order to stay competitive.

–     Web Advertising refers to paid placement in search engines and purchase of banner ads on other websites to generate traffic. This is one part of a Web Marketing campaign and is very helpful to SEO, as links and ad-generated traffic can also boost “organic” search engine placement. We frequently use the information gathered through web advertising to identify client behaviors and develop stronger SEO strategies.

–    Web Marketing generally includes Web Advertising, SEO, Email campaigns and database generation. Social Media is quickly finding its place as a powerful Web Marketing and PR tool and is becoming one of the leading methods of promotion for some businesses. Web Marketing often encompasses selling products or services on retail sites or through listing services. Marketing in general encompasses all aspects of promoting a product or service, and every product and service requires unique methods to reach its target market.
