Paid and Organic Searches Piggybacking Off of One Another

What’s the Difference Between Organic and Paid Search Data?

The whole point of organic and paid searches is for companies to get more viewers on their webpage. This leads the company to spiral in a positive direction when they are getting as many to view and buy their product as possible. Companies use a combination of paid and organic keyword searches to set themselves apart from competitors that may not be getting as many clicks on their website as much as they would like to.

Why Use Both Organic and Paid Keyword Searches

It is a very useful tactic that companies do by using paid and organic keyword searches. A company that is good at it is Amazon. When you search for something to buy the first thing that may pop up in the Google Search is a paid ad that Amazon is paying for. That way they get to be at the top when people search for something and Amazon pops up right away. If you scroll down you may see even more Amazon stuff that will lead you to their page and those are just organic keyword searches. They have done a tremendous job studying common words people use to look things up and also what their competitors are using for a organic search keyword to make their keywords even better.

A/B Testing Helps Make Decisions

What is A/B Testing?

To simply answer that question, A/B testing is comparing two versions of something and seeing which one works better. They are randomized controlled experiments because you can set it so half of the time people are sent to one page and the other half go to the other page. Then you can collect data on which one performed better.

Sample Hypothesis

Think for example, that you are running a food business. You can create two different pages. One could have pictures of the food at the bottom and the other one could have the pictures at the top and you run that A/B test and see who shops more on your website. I’m sure in the results you will see that people like pictures of the food and will be more likely to buy from you but you can do that with any website.

McDonald’s Everlasting Campaign

The Magical Golden Arch

McDonald’s is known by everyone from the golden arches in their logo. There are also many other things McDonald’s is known for with their campaign but since times are changing we will talk about their most recent campaigns. Their most recent slogans are “Hands Full”, “Grown up”, and “It Must Be” trying to make it the quickest way possible for families to get food.

For example, McDonalds has introduces kiosks where you can order food making it much faster timing to get your food because you don’t have to wait in line if there is one. Below there is a link to the new campaign ideas and the actual ads.

Multiple Channel Campaigns

McDonalds came out with the campaign called “Search It” back in 2007 which was an ad showing a person google searching where the best coke is. This brought them to the McDonalds page because they are known for having the best tasting soda. There are multiple ways that McDonald’s will pop up while people are google searching that will bring them back to the McDonald’s page. Having so many different advertisements will get McDonalds stuck in someones head so when they need a quick bite to eat it will trigger their memory and they will be more likely to go to McDonald’s. As a company they have done a good job tagging keywords that people search for such as “Best Coke” and McDonald’s will pop up. Using the words “Best Coke” don’t necessarily relate to McDonald’s but that’s how they can get new consumers to start eating at their place. Also putting in a link back to their website for all of their advertisements is smart because people will go to their website and see all of the new things they have to offer.
