Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I do SEM campaigns if my official website already appears first in organic results?

Are you sure you are in the first position in every language on Google? Unlike SEO results where websites redirect on homepage, in SEM campaigns you can chose a specific landing page where the web user will be redirected, for instance your promotions and special offers page.

Most of people click on natural search results and not advertising, don't they?

Many people don’t see the difference between paid search results and organic results and tend to click on the first three results that are most of the time PPC ads. 

Why should I communicate on my brand ?

OTAs can use your brand as keywords and divert travelers that were looking for you to their website. It is essential to appear in the first 3 positions. It accounts for more than 65% of the traffic.  

Is there no interest to let the OTAs doing PPC campaigns for us?

OTAs can use your brand as keywords and redirect to a page where your hotel will be introduced on the same page as your competitors. Moreover, their commission rate is generally much more expensive than our 15% commission based on confirmed bookings.
