Paid Search Marketing

Paid Search MarketingPaid Search Marketing (Pay Per Click or PPC) is a performance based method of advertising in which advertisers pay for placement on page 1 of the search results for a targeted list of keywords. In a sense, the advertiser can buy targeted traffic. Advertisers only pay when a searcher clicks on their ad and is brought to their website. The cost per click is determined in an auction-like manner based on the competition for the keyword. Advertisers can set their budget in advance for a particular time period so that costs can be controlled.

There are pluses and minuses to this manner of doing business. If you have an immediate need, and can’t wait for organic methods, you can essentially buy website traffic through Pay Per Click.

  • You can rank very quickly on page 1 of the search results
  • It is cost effective, you only pay when people click your ads
