What is Pay Per Click Advertising?
For new websites or sites that rank poorly, Pay-per-Click advertising provides a means to get your site exposure fast! Properly managed PPC will get customers to your site, regardless of your site’s search engine ranking. Even established sites that are optimized and have good rankings can use PPC to bring traffic for additional search terms the site may not be ranking for. It is also a particularly successful strategy for quickly selling time sensitive or seasonal products or information.
How Does Pay Per Click Advertising Work?
It works by search engines selling search result positions for specific keywords/phrases (refer to figure 1). An advertiser only pays when a search engine user clicks a sponsored ad that leads them to a corresponding landing page. Cost will vary depending on the competitiveness of the keywords and their relevancy to the page; the position on the search results and the number of clicks per day.
Note: Costs can be capped by a budgetary ceiling specified by the advertiser.
