For anyone doubting the power of paid search, Hitwise have revealed some interesting statistics regarding traffic generated by PPC advertising and comparison sites within the insurance sector. Despite the slowing down across all sectors, paid search remains an incredibly lucrative source of traffic and revenue. For insurance alone it still accounts for 33% of all traffic from within the UK, well above the average of 8.6%.
The rise in popularity of comparison sites, which all feature round the clock advertising both online and offline, has done little to curtail the value of PPC. In every single division (Health, Home, Motor, Travel and Other) paid search was found to be well ahead of the comparison sites. The lowest figure was found to be Health insurance, which only received 39.8%, whilst the other four sectors were reasonably consistent between 49% and 53.4% of search traffic.
PPC advertising is clearly still managing to achieve some exceptional results right across the hugely competitive insurance world. It provides a very simple and direct way to promote your products and services, whilst also offering the opportunity for immediate results. Whilst the industry as a whole has seen a slight downturn in the last year, it is seemingly no less effective at generating highly targeted traffic.
Of course this is only one set of statistics. Other popular searches across different sectors may well have suffered more. However, it does show that PPC is still a thriving industry and has the potential to generate unparalleled online visibility.

Create Britain is an online interactive map that invites businesses from the creative industry to contribute a short video to claim their own pin on the map that links to their video clip. The video clips need to answer one question: ‘What makes British creativity so great?’.
