What is SEM?

SEM stands for Search Engine Marketing. This is a really broad term for a really powerful tool. You know that people are searching for things on the internet every day; maybe they're searching for what you do. Are you showing up on Google? SEO can help with your search rankings, but sometimes you need that extra boost — that's where SEM comes into play. Through Google AdWords and the Google Display Network, you know you're going to show up on your potential clients' screens when they do a search for your keywords. They'll find you right at the moment they need you and be that much more likely to sign up for your service right away.

What is SEO?

SEO stands for search engine optimization, and it’s in essence what makes your website work. Search engines such as Google, Yahoo, and Bing catalogue every site on the web and provide them to the user based on relevance to their query. In order for this to work, your site must be easily accessible and searchable by the those search engines while also maintaining security against malicious bots. This is where our SEO services come into play. Baker Street works to gain your website maximum viewability while keeping out the programs that are unwelcome.
