Paid Search vs. Organic Search
Paid search is when an organization pays to have their website and service appear at the top of search results. When a user searches a specific term, ads that fit this keyword appear as the first group of results. Advertisers use the Google Keyword Tool to see which keywords and phrases are being used, and match these keywords to their business to service a specific niche, product and/or service.
Organic search is search results that match Google’s search algorithm, matching websites that closely suit the keyword being searched by the user. A website with credibility, good content, and authority in a specific area is more likely to appear near the top of a search query.
Both strategies offer highly advantageous end-goals for any website: appearing on the first page of Google translates to more visitors for the site.
