Facebook is clearly one of the biggest social media outlets on the Internet today. When it began, it was much simpler and had many less users as well as less features. It was essentially just a wall you could write on and pictures. You had to be a student to get an account and the Facebook ads were much more broad and for everyone that went on the site.
When you see advertisements on an Internet search result it’s pretty obvious they’re paying to be there. Most consumers also realize that when someone pays for PPC since they show up at the top and the right in a pink highlight. The higher the search term the more that Google and Bing change a customer each and every time someone clicks a link. These terms can often cost quite a bit per click and need large budgets to support PPC. Organic SEO drives a natural, real web result.
The Internet marketing community has seen some major changes over the last year. First Google released Panda and now Penguin. These changes have had a severe impact to the way Google calculates search results. These changes are intended to reduce spam and provide the user with the best results possible. Does this always work for webmasters? No. I’ve seen a lot of buzz from marketing teams where sites thought to be well developed have been impacted.
