Traffic is great for SEO. Using Google Adwords is paid traffic, and although that traffic source ends once you stop paying, the traffic you've driven can help your rank. Keep in mind, if your website doesn't have a lead generation strategy in place then all the traffic in the world won't do you much good. You need a conversion strategy in place before you spend a dime on traffic.

Key Factors to a website:

• Traffic: How they're finding you
• Conversion: How you're converting them to leads
• Nurture: How you're nurturing leads

Keep in mind, a website isn't like a... (more)

Do you recommend any sources to help me establish lead generation on my own. Without paying someone?

A conversion strategy can be as simple as well thought out call-to-action to a 'request a quote' or 'free consultation' with a form.

But that attract's ready buyers, for the not-so-ready buyers you want to think of some kind of lead magnet such as an eBook, checklist or guide. These are really easy to produce and are a really great way to build an email list while building credibility.

If you're targeting a certain niche for a campaign also consider a landing page and lead magnet specific to it and drive traffic to it from Adwords. If your target is Plumbers... (more)

Its amazing to me that the only person here who knows what they are talking about is Ed from Cloud Nine Communications. The rest of you should be ashamed to call yourself marketers. Michael OBrien, you are just trying to one-up Ed who has sound advice and obviously knows that closing is part of lead nurturing. And your grammar is atrocious for a business forum. I hope you dont write like that for your clients.

Excuse me? Why don't you read all of the comments before you decide to be incredibly rude.


Robert Portillo from Nimbus Marketing

Im not mad, but I am disgusted by the level of incompetence in our profession. Marketers have a 0% trust rating. Zero percent! That is less than that of politicians who have a 4% trust rating. The reason for this is because of all of the dishonest and/or incompetent marketers out there. And the answers here are no exception. Every single one of the answers was incorrect, off topic or self-serving or all three, except for Ed's. And he doesn't go far enough in his second response. He admittedly elaborates off topic and then again in his second response when he... (more)

Robert, first of all "ouch".

I was wondering what had your panties in a bunch and I realized (at least for me) that I was only talking about one side of Adsense. I was coming from the angle of a person that wishes to apply Adsense to their website, not a person that wants to pay for Adsense campaigns (it would seem pretty obvious you are going to boost SEO when you are paying for it so why delve into that obviousness - but I know you know that already). I should have qualified my response and thanks to your thoughtful input, I will make sure to do so in the... (more)

PPC before SEO will rarely help your organic rankings. An SEO campaign supplemented with a paid strategy is really to ideal route to go in terms of a building brand equity and having a solid short and long-term marketing strategy.

Dan Goldberg from Dan Goldberg

Paid search optimization can help SEO, which can allow you to reduce your ad spend as your organic results improve. Organic search is definitely the way to go if you can generate the quality and quantity of content to do it.

However, Google just recently eliminated paid ads in the right margin of its results pages and moved all ads to the top of the page, above the organic results. As a consequence, ads are pushing organic results down on the page, sometimes below the fold.

Will this change change the effectiveness of organic search results? Hard to predict.... (more)

Here's the thing: even if you are already running AdWords or AdSense, you should still perform search engine optimization strategies to cater to organic rankings. Why? People choose organic results 94 percent of the time than ads. If you're not on the first page of Google (or other search engines), don't expect to get as much traffic or clicks.

If you currently have an SEO campaign but want to start an AdWords or AdSense project, go ahead. It will NOT affect your organic... (more)

Google is all about revenue. Your adsense ranking will always be higher than a highly SEO site. That said, it's always good to optimize your site, because Google adsense, as one of it's criteria, has a Quality Score- meaning that the more relevance your site has to your keywords, the higher the frequency and ranking will be. So Google adsense is good for SEO, in the sense that the better SEO you have, the ranking and frequency are better. Regarding aesthetics: a good SEO writer can make it sing like a Soprano.
