Google Adwords

When you advertise at Google Adwords the ads start running within minutes after you submit your billing information, it is the fastest way to get exposure online. Google is the number one search engine used by internet surfers and online shoppers. They go more than a hundred and fifty million searches on Google everyday and millions more on its partner sites.

Google Adwords are the ads you see displayed in small rectangle boxes running down the right side of the Google search results page. Your ads may be shown on search results pages for Google, Google Directory, Google Groups, and Google’s partner sites, including their partners’ directory results pages. You may choose to have yours ads shown only for search results on Google, if you don’t want to participate in the syndication program.

Google’s current syndication partners include:

  • • America Online, Inc.
  • • CompuServe
  • • Netscape
  • • AT&T Worldnet
  • • EarthLink, Inc.
  • • Sympatico Inc.

Pay Per Click Search Engines

The second fastest way in gaining exposure online is to buy keyword listings on Pay Per Click Search Engines. Pay per click advertising works when advertisers bid on relevant keywords and pay the bid amount each time someone clicks on the link through to their site.

Pay for a Yahoo! Listing

Yahoo! Listings are no longer free; you have to pay for it. As the time of writing, Yahoo! charges $299 (non-refundable) for their ‘Yahoo! Express’ expedited listing service, and $600 for adult-oriented sites. Payment does not guarantee inclusion in the directory. Payment guarantees that a member of Yahoo!’s editorial staff will look at your site, consider your suggestion to include the site in the directory, and respond to you within seven business days from the date that you submit your site for consideration. Payment also guarantees that Yahoo! will respond to your suggestion within seven business days, by either adding or denying the site. If your listing is denied, you have the right to appeal and/or make changes to your site within a certain amount of time and re-submit without making an additional payment.
