What Is A Website ?
A website could be defined in several manners.
One of the ways to describe the same could be breaking the word into two i.e. “Web” and “Site”.
In Which Manner Is A Website Similar To A Physical Site ?
Maybe one could relate this term to an office location.
So as you may visit a business address offline i.e. personally, a website enables the same in an online mode.
Probably the main advantage of a physical presence inside a client’s office i.e. his/her professional location “Physical Site” may help one interact with the host in a highly personal manner. Whereas while browsing the same “Online Site” or “Company’s Website”, one is unable to undertake activities like negotiation or else a customized solution may not be possible to obtain or things like making a counter-offer is sometimes difficult to push online.
Whereas the major benefit of dealing through an “Online Site” is that as most of the information including a companies past record, present specialties, instructional material etc. is available to read or scan, it saves a lot of time in asking a plethora of questions. As the descriptions, policies, buying and selling rates, conditions etc. are normally universal for all buyers or sellers, it eliminates the possibilities of miscommunication and confusion. To top that, written specifications can be re-scrutinized anytime whereas a buyer may forget what the seller said during a discussion.
Why Do Websites Include the Term “Web” Inside Themselves ?
Lets say your’e travelling on the highway either by car, foot or any mode of transportation.
So it may not be inappropriate to say that one can notice office, markets, farmlands, houses, billboards, people, hotels, brand signages over buildings, animals, road signals etc. all over the place spread over like a “Web”.
Same way while browsing the crawlers, one generally views all sorts of pages, videos, documents, advertisements, local business listings, photos, news clips, blogs etc. distributed all over your screen or scattered like a “Web”.
How Can One Define An Organic Listing Result Vs. An Online Advertisement ?
One of the ways to explain the difference between the two is that an internet marketing Ad could be identical to a highway billboard or a brand signage visible on the highway or any road as mentioned in the paragraph above.
Whereas a natural result could probably be identical to an example where the government marks a road signal as something like – “Take Left For TGBNHFOBH Engineering Company” . In such a scenario it is a sign that the same firm has gathered some sort of a public recognition which even the government is approving of. So the top 2 crawlers are like the government in such an event.
Having said that it is not that one could identify this aspect in a literal manner. After all both – “Established Brands” as well as “Small Unknown Firms” advertise digitally and gain fruitful results too.
