Rakuten LinkShare’s search marketing division reported record-breaking client results for the fourth quarter of 2012.

Online advertisers working with Rakuten LinkShare’s paid search marketing services outperformed the industry average for click-through rate (CTR), cost-per-click (CPC), and return on ad spend (ROAS).

More specifically, Rakuten LinkShare search marketing clients saw the following results on average:

• Click through rate (CTR) of 2.45% or nine percent higher than the industry average of 1.94%. ¹
• Cost-per-click (CPC) of $0.44 or six percent lower than the industry average of $0.54. ²
• Return on ad spend (ROAS) of $9.30 or sixty percent higher than the industry average of $5.78.³
• Conversion rate of 5.65% or 99% higher than the industry average conversion rate of 2.84%.⁴

In line with the industry, Rakuten LinkShare clients saw on average a twenty percent increase in sales transactions yet they achieved this year-over-year increase more efficiently and more cost effectively.

“Rakuten LinkShare has enabled us to achieve tremendous results in our search marketing campaigns which can be attributed to their balanced approach to service, technology and strategy,” said Neill Morris, director of online marketing, Murad, Inc. “They’ve also delivered when it comes to staying on top of the latest changes and innovations released by the search engines yet never lose sight of the fundamentals that a well optimized program can deliver.”

Search marketing is a high growth area that reached nearly $23 billion by the end of 2012. To accommodate the needs of advertisers, Rakuten LinkShare paid search services also include innovative campaigns for mobile paid search, YouTube advertising, Google Shopping, Google Product Listing Ads, and comparison-shopping engine management.

“While Rakuten LinkShare has been synonymous with performance marketing, we’re also seeing a growing demand for our search marketing and other services,” said Yaz Iida, chief executive officer, Rakuten LinkShare. “These dramatic results speak for themselves as more online advertisers rely on us to uncover new opportunities to drive sales online.”
