Marketers don’t get SEM results right
According to a new study by JupiterResearch, most companies don’t get search engine marketing right, in the sense they evaluate the results in the wrong way. ClickZ reports there is a lack of measurement of business goals, with many marketers unable to tie conversions to search marketing activities.
Basically, what the research points out is that, despite its growing popularity, search engine marketing is still rather immature. Most of the times it is just a “one shot” activity, and it isn’t fully integrated in the brand marketing strategy.
