Talking Click Quality With Danny Sullivan

Danny Sullivan

Following a post here from last week, Danny Sullivan, SEL's illustrious Editor-In-Chief, emailed me some follow-up questions about how we buy clicks for clients (answer: carefully!), and how we allocate budget across the engines (answer: we don't!)

At Danny's suggestion, I responded to his questions over at Search Engine Land.

The longish SEL post discusses click quality, the click inventory plateau, and suggests a spreadsheet exercise you can do yourself to check out your own sales vs. efficiency trade-off.

sales vs. ad spend, googlesales vs. efficiency, google and yahoo

Alan: Very interesting post! Thank you. One thing I'm curious about. Yahoo introduced a version of "smart pricing" in 2007, where clicks are discounted based on its "convertibility". Yet, this doesn't seem to have reversed Yahoo's click share loss to Google. Any comments?
