Report of the Day: Search Engine Marketing Fact Pack 2006

Keywords: search engine marketing (SEM)

52-Page Data Guide on Engines, Keywords, Sites and Studies
"IT SOLVES A BASIC MARKETING need: connecting potential buyers to sellers. But until the recent past, search marketing has lived a low-profile life in the media and advertising world.

Today, however, it’s hard to ignore the stats: About 80% of internet traffic begins at a search engine, according to Harris Interactive, and DoubleClick reports 41% of web users use search for simple navigation, typing a query to find a brand rather than typing a URL directly into their browser.

And how the business has grown: the latest figures from Forrester indicate search marketing will be a $7 billion business this year. While it may not be as flashy as TV, search is one of the best ways to extend the life of a 30-second spot. Ignoring it is a stumble few marketers can afford, which is why Advertising Age has compiled its first comprehensive Fact Pack devoted to search marketing."
