4 Steps to Maximize Search ROI Process explained

Maximizing Search ROI means investing paid search budgets in areas where you don't have the best organic visibility, but have similar results. This way you increase your organic CTR, get more clicks, more conversions from the Organic Channel. If you consider the  saved budget to reinvest in other important keywords and the extra value from the organic extra clicks, you obtain a very nice incremental effect for your overall search performance.

Consolidate paid and organic into a single data set / source of truth.

Business Insights Enrichment

Monthly Measure & Learn

Step 1. Setup and Initial

Consolidate Paid Search and Organic Search into a single data set, one source of truth for all parties involved in the process. In just a few hours you will get the full image of the search semantic and insights:

  • automatic categorization of user searches

Step 3. Build tests for incremental growth

By now the search synergy strategy is in place , the plans are made and the always on approach begins. We start to build, measure and learn.
The system automatically generates test ideas based on account performance and you can decide their prioritization with your SEA and SEO teams.
Some clients prefer to start with a manual search cannibalization test to convince themselves that the hypothesis works. Others simply start automatic tests.  The system manages cannibalization through API and shows the incremental results in search performance in a dedicated dashboard.
Others have a huge focus in covering some big organic gaps, some want to make keywords enrichment in SEA. Some want to align SEA -SEO landing pages, others ask their SEO teams to improve the Landing Pages with below expected user experience.
There are many aspects in SEA SEO synergy that can be covered. You only need time and focus.

Is Seo Sea synergy a myth?

Our data and common sense tells us a simple thing. SERP has lots of slots for brands to cover. Some are paid, some are organic. The more space you cover in the visible slots the more chances you have for a high CTR in search.

Google Search has the purpose to deliver relevant results for the user's query. This is their mission and they need to stick to the relevance of Google search results,  no matter if they are organic or paid. So they will sort by relevance the results for each search.

The user will get to see on top, in the most visible part of the page the best search ads and the best organic results possible given the expected intent.If your brand covers 2 slots, paid and organic, your visibility is higher, but you also have a cannibalization effect for the two channels. That translates in Google Paid Search taking traffic from the Google Organic Search. 
Google Search Test Paid Organic Synergy
This is a good thing if your goal is high visibility and your SEA budgets are very generous. But if you would like to get the most out of your budget we recommend reducing the cannibalization effect and maximizing overall Google Search Channel results.

We've done tens of manual SEA Seo cannibalization tests. Now we are confident enough that it works and we developed automatic synergy tests that work on a daily basis through API making sure we get the most out of the SEA budget,  increase organic CTR and overall search results.
