COMM 4325 - Advanced Search Marketing
Search engines are one of the primary ways that Internet users find the information they are seeking. Search Engine Marketing (SEM) seeks to promote websites by increasing their visibility in search engine results pages (SERPs) though the use of paid placement, contextual advertising and paid inclusion.
This class focuses on promoting an organization through search engines, delivering relevant content in the search listings, and encouraging users to click through to a designation site. Both of the two key techniques of SEM will be explored: search engine optimization (SEO) to improve results from the natural or organic listings, and paid search marketing or pay-per-click (PPC) to deliver results from the sponsored listings within search engines. Navigational search and universal search practices will also be explored.
