What is SEA (paid SEO)?

Become visible on the web (with a little help)


SEA is the acronym for «Search Engine Advertising».

To increase the visibility of a website and its notoriety, there is SEO («Search Engine Optimization» or natural referencing) which aims to place your site naturally in the first Google search results (or other search engines) and the SEA or «Search Engine Advertising» which has the same objective but with the help of paid advertisements. These advertisements are created via tools like GoogleAds and allow rapid referencing thanks to targeted advertisements and configured to appear next specific keywords and terms.

You can easily recognize an advertising or SEA ad among Google results thanks to the «Sponsored» indication above the link to the website.
