Despite a struggling economy, search engines like Google are thriving due to increased advertising sales, namely through their pay-per-click program otherwise known as Google Adwords. Google Adwords are the ads that appear at the very top and down the right sidebar when a user performs a keyword search. Google Adwords (and similar programs on other search engines) are a highly popular and ROI friendly way for companies small and large to get attention from users searching for keywords related to their business.
Google, according to Rich Stokes, Founder and CEO of AdGooroo, increased their active advertiser account by a mind blowing 54.9% in the fourth quarter of 2008, as compared to fourth quarter 2007. Microsoft (the MSN search network) increased their active advertisers by 11.5% from the third to fourth quarter, which is very strong considering they have a fraction of the market share compared to search giant Google.
There’s never been a better time to jump aboard the pay-per-click advertising model, which is something that Dirxion will very soon be officially offering our customers. There are a considerable amount of benefits to running a PPC campaign for your companies website, including but not limited to:
1. Increased traffic to your website.
2. Increased brand awareness.

There are many more benefits to start what is commonly referred to as a “Search Engine Marketing” campaign for your business, but the ones above should be enough reason for anyone to get excited.
