Pay per Click Marketing (PPC), sometime referred to as PPC Advertising is a very effective route to market. It is also the quickest way of appearing on the first page of a search engine such as Google for the search terms (keywords) that are relevant to your business.
Website Analytics software shows an increase in traffic once PPC Ads switched on
This means that you can start receiving more traffic very quickly – a PPC ad can be set up and appear on the first page of Google within a few minutes of writing the ad copy. It can take a while and a lot of effort to get your business listed in the natural listings of the search engines for free using search engine optimisation techniques, however – using Pay Per Click Marketing, your website can appear on the first page free – UNTIL someone clicks your ad. Each time someone clicks on your ad you will be charged a fee – this is the Cost per Click (CPC). If no-one clicks your ad then you don't get charged.
Pay per Click marketing can be very effective as it means that most people who click your ad are going to be interested to a certain degree in your website providing your ads are well written and highly targeted. The most popular PPC Search Engine is Google, though there are alternative search engines who offer PPC such as Yahoo, Microsoft and Facebook.
Google Adwords (Pay per Click Ads)
Google Adwords appear alongside the natural search engine results on the right-hand-side of the page. Sometimes, for popular keywords, Google will also show between 1 and 3 Ads at the top of the listings. Your company can appear on the front page of Google within a few minutes of setting up a campaign and you only get charged when someone clicks on your Google ad.
