Why buying keywords on Google isn’t possible ?

You are the owner of a beautiful website and want to position it in search engines top results thanks to some keywords ?
Good idea !

The big deal ? A lot of SEO beginners think that it is possible to buy keywords, which is a big mistake...

Be careful, keywords don’t function like domain names ! You cannot buy them to use them. Keywords belong to everybody. If you want your website to have visibility on the results page thanks to keywords, there are several other ways.

1. SEA

Money, money, money 💸

Reminder : What is SEA ?

SEA is what looks the most like « buying of keywords ». It is about paying search engines in order to be in top positions. It’s for example what Google does with its Google Adwords campaigns. If you choose SEA, your website will appear up the results page for some keywords. You actually pay to rank upon some keywords that you choose. For example, if you are a car seller in Denver, you will be able to pay in order to be shown in the results page for these keywords : « car denver", « car seller denver", « new car denver", etc... According to what seems the more interesting for your marketing target.

You can use SEA to temporarily earn visibility. Therefore, you have to know something about SEA :

  1. It’s not free, and sometimes expensive according to the keyword. If the one or the ones you want are really wanted, by the search engine users and the websites, prices can blow up.

  2. It’s limited in time. When your Google Adwords campaign, for example, ends up, you lose your first position and find back your initial position.

  3. Your website is shown as an ad, which indicates that you « cheat ». The user can think that you had to pay for a nice position because your website is not good

SEA can be a good option when you need a little hand but shouldn’t be in any case your main SEO strategy.
