How do pay-per-click ads compare with organic search results?


Years ago when pay-per-click ads were new, the first tests showed that searchers preferred to click on the links that appeared on the search page (“organic results”) rather clicking on than the pay-per-click ads.  I saw a recent comparison yesterday, when Gord Hotchkiss of Enquiro published an article saying results have remained remarkably steady over the past six years:  for commercial searches, about 70% of searchers click on organic results, while only 30% click on the pay-per-click ads.

This is important information for firms trying to decide how to allocate resources between pay-per-click campaigns and search engine optimization.

Attorney Advertising

No representation is made that the quality of legal services to be performed is greater than the quality of legal services performed by other lawyers. The hiring of a law firm is a serious decision that should not be based on advertising alone.
