Google cuts right hand side PPC advertisements

Google cuts right hand side PPC advertisements

The decision is final. Say good-bye to right hand side advertisements, but say hello to a rise in PPC advertisements at the top of the first SERP.

PPC advertisements have been making an impact to digital marketers alike, generating a traffic flow for businesses resulting in a gain in profits.

What will this mean for Digital Marketers?

The result for digital marketers means a rise in Google AdWords and a decrease in SEO,  focusing on creating organic listings to stand out from others, metatag optimization and of course keywords which will create higher rankings for businesses .

Statistically speaking, advertisements seen on the right and the bottom of the page only account for 14.6% yet the bottom of the page ads will not be affected and the only change is seen on desktop which account for half the searches, resulting in 7.3% of queries will be affected.

More PPC advertisements, mean less organic results; and the result, will users be more inclined to skip the first page and go straight to the second?

Take a look at Bing’s new PPC feature – image extensions.
