When it comes to finding quality content, you can rely on a variety of paid search engines to rank for you.
And for many, the big search engines are Google, Bing, Yahoo, and others.
But in the world of SEO, it can be tricky to find the right one for your business.
So here are five things to know about the paid search and advertising business.
Paid search is expensive.
Google alone charges a hefty $11.2 billion annually for the advertising business, according to Google Analytics.
Google says the average company spends $3,200 a year for advertising.
That’s a pretty hefty price tag, especially for a company with only about 1.5 million employees and no revenue to speak of.
Google pays for most of the advertising, but that’s not the only cost.
There’s also the cost of acquiring search and other advertising data.
“Google pays for about 80 percent of the data it collects,” says Jonathon DeLong, a search industry analyst at Search Engine Land.
“But it’s not clear how much that information is used to generate search results or how much is sold to advertisers.”
Advertising costs are rising fast.
The average cost per click of a search query on Google has grown from $3.80 to $3 at the time of the Great Recession, according a study by The Wall Street Journal.
The price of advertising on Google alone rose from $7.85 per click in 2014 to $8.50 today, according Google Analytics data.
Google’s advertising platform, AdWords, has also risen in price.
“AdWords has gone up substantially over the last couple of years,” says DeLong.
Search ads are a lot more expensive than other types of advertising.
Google has paid out $7 billion to search advertising partners for the last two years.
According to Google’s 2016 AdWords earnings report, the cost to advertisers for each search keyword spent was $6.8 million per month in the third quarter of 2016.
That is up from just $2.4 million per search keyword in the first quarter of 2017.
Google said in a 2017 earnings call that search ads account for more than 30 percent of Google’s overall ad spend.
Google is charging a premium to display your business’s ads.
Google charges advertisers to display their ads, which are shown to visitors, in their search results.
But Google is also charging advertisers to show up in search results and on the page itself.
Ads are displayed in search result pages and in the search results themselves.
Search engines are trying to make you pay more to rank your site for search.
Search engine companies have come under fire for the prices they charge for ranking your site in the top 10 results.
Google, for instance, charges advertisers $6 for each top result, but ads appear in search ads in the lower-ranked results, according the Center for Responsive Politics.
Google also charges advertisers a premium for appearing in the results of other search engines, such as Yahoo.
But that premium is only a small portion of what Google is actually charging advertisers.
According a report from Search Engine Watch, Google is paying around $4.8 billion for search results from Google, and that’s up from $2 billion in 2017.
But according to DeLong’s research, this is only part of the picture.
“The majority of search is still paid search,” he says.
“We pay search engines a lot of money to rank their results for us.”
Google’s search ranking engine is ranking for you, not for advertisers.
That means the search engine you use is likely a good match for you and your business, says De Long.
The biggest competitors are now targeting smaller businesses.
Today, there are about 4,500 search engines for every 1,000 businesses.
That number will likely double by 2020, according research from SEMrush.
Search has become a huge part of digital marketing, so Google’s goal is to make it easy for you to reach the most profitable businesses and reach those businesses quickly.
That can be tough for a small business that’s trying to reach for the top.
“A lot of smaller businesses have struggled to find advertisers for their SEO efforts, and many are trying for a very low cost, which is not an easy way to do it,” says Chris Lough, a partner at SEMrush and an industry analyst.
The companies that compete with Google for the search advertising business have gotten a lot bigger in recent years, but many smaller companies are struggling to reach that market.
And they are doing it by targeting smaller brands, he says, rather than targeting large-scale businesses.
Google does not disclose how much of the $2 trillion it spends on advertising is spent in search.
But a number of reports show that Google’s ads have been a big part of Google ads spending for the past few years.
Google paid out more than $8 billion in search advertising revenue last year, according an analysis by Ad Age.
