16 Integration “kills two birds”
SEM Ads should direct users to a landing page. How about a SEO-OPTIMIZED landing page… Organic Ranking Paid Listing

17 Integration is More Effective
SEO keywords are limited. SEM keywords are not. With an integrated SEM/SEO approach, keywords that are performing in SEM can be exported to the SEM manager for SEO content Keywords that are performing in SEO can easily be purchased in the SEM campaign Top 3 SEM Honda Texas Honda Dallas Honda DFW Top 3 SEO Honda Texas Honda Dallas Used Honda Dallas

18 Integration is Cheaper
Theoretically, the higher the Organic keyword, the less you need to rely on its PPC counter-part As organic rises, the PPC can be decreased – thus more traffic at a lower cost We set rules based on organic positioning to determine the appropriate decrease in bid

19 Integration = Better ROI
With top performing terms being taken from each program and added to the top, keyword lists are consistently being optimized for better ROI across both programs BETTER ROI $$ keyword $$$ keyword $ keyword -$ keyword $ keyword
