- Kevin Ryan from the ClickZ Network talks about the comparisons between yellow pages and search. He says 90% of yellow pages traffic comes from search engines like Google and Yahoo.
- Search Insider asks, “Do special shipping offers really add to your bottom line?” The short answer is yes. This test looked at a 3 month sales period where 50% of the time a “Free Shipping” tag line was used in the advertisements. When the tag line was used, the average order value decreased while overall orders increased. There was also a decrease in return on ad spend due to the increased order numbers. While this wasn’t a true A/B test, it is still interesting to see that pointing out your “Free Shipping” attributes does make a difference.
