Exhibit 26.1   Search and Display advertisements.

Exhibit 26.1 provides an example of a search ad and a display ad for a property rental. Search ads are effective for reaching prospects with the intent to purchase, resulting in higher click-through and conversion rates. On the other hand, display ads are better suited for building brand awareness. Users browsing sites where display ads are shown are usually seeking information. These ads tend to reach a wider audience, and though the average cost per click is lower, the conversion rate is also likely to be much lower compared with search ads.

A CSE can be configured to search a specific set of sites or the entire internet. In the latter case, it prioritizes results from the developer’s own sites.
