Product Ads and the CPA model: the future of search?

With its new Product Ads format, which could potentially be offered on a cost per action (CPA) model as well as cost-per-click (CPC) next year, Google is offering brands an entirely new way to engage in and measure search advertising.

2012 looks set to be a huge year for search. 


Majority of marketers unhappy with mobile ads: report

Recently, Razorfish's Paul Gelb suggested that the spend on mobile ads could soon surpass the spend on television ads, even though television advertising currently has a hundred-billion-dollar-plus lead.

How is Facebook advertising performing against search?

We’ve been testing the performance of Facebook advertising on our Facebook optimisation platform, and how it performs against search for a test sample of brand clients.

Should SEOs be paid for performance?

Mark Jackson at Search Engine Watch published a post yesterday about an interesting concept: performance-based compensation for SEO.

In it, Jackson describes a panel discussion at the Search Engine Strategies conference that took place in Silicon Valley last week. The panel, "Performance Pricing Models: What Every CMO Must Know", broached the subject of performance-based pay for SEOs.


One social network turns a profit by...charging users

Consumers don't like paying for anything online. This is especially true when it comes to younger consumers. Common knowledge, right?

Wrong. Just ask myYearbook, a second-tier social network that caters primarily to teens. It has managed to do something many other social networks haven't: turn a profit. And it's done it by charging its supposedly frugal Gen Y users.

Three letters many of the online publishers I know love to hate: CPA.
