Pay per Click Solutions
When you pay a search engine for each visitor they send to your site, this is called pay per click (PPC). Pay per click listings are usually marked as advertisements or "Sponsored Links" and appear above or beside the search engine's organic listings.
The primary benefit of pay per click is the immediate results and complete control it offers the advertiser. You can commit £1, or £100,000. You may target one set of keywords today, and if they don't work out you may target an entirely different set of keywords tomorrow – this makes PPC one of the most flexible and useful forms of advertising media.
As a short-term strategy, pay per click is ideal. The drawback of PPC is the cost. A top position for some search terms can cost thousands or tens of thousands of Pounds, Dollars, Euros each day. Over the long term, organic search engine optimisation is much more cost effective.
There is a rule of thumb in advertising. It says that if a campaign achieves full ROI, it is worth doing. Given this, if the cost of advertising is earned back by the advert, it's worth doing. By this standard, you may often justify the cost of PPC.
