The growth of search engine marketing (SEM) predicted by investment firm Piper-Jaffray in a study they published in 2003 — projected that worldwide total revenue from search would reach $7 billion by 2007. Actual revenue for North America alone was $12 billion in 2007. The investment in SEM represents both paid online advertising, and a renewed interest online retailers have in managing their organic search channel. Netconcepts serves leading brands, who we see are increasing their investment and treating organic optimization as an ongoing need, no longer a one-time application.
