Online Organic Search Models Dissertation – In today’s market, the online channel has increasingly become a primary market especially for businesses that have adopted an ecommerce business model. An online presence allows for online advertising which has significant advantages over traditional advertising in that it allows for targeted, traceable, as well as cost effective marketing.

The two main ways that businesses can advertise online are through the organic search model and sponsored search model. While the organic model has long been preferred by ecommerce businesses, the paid search model has in the recent years become more popular.

In addition, the paper explores the relationship between the two models and consumers in the Irish marketplaces and lastly the guidelines for combining the two models to generate positive ROI for SMEs. The dissertation establishes that the paid search model offers greater benefits than the organic search model. While each of the models has several positive and negative attributes, combining the two methods offers greater synergies for search engine marketing.
