Pay Per Click (PPC) Advertising
Pay Per Click (PPC) advertising is an advertising system where the advertiser only pays for each click on their advert. PPC advertising is keyword based – this means that it is based on the search term that a user enters into a search engine and provides an excellent resource to research keyword volumes and conversion success.
There are a number of tools that can aid in growing keyword list. Google Adwords is one of the best tools and has evolved into Google's main advertising product and main source of revenue. Google's text advertisements are short, consisting of one headline of 25 characters and two additional text lines of 35 characters each. Except Cost-Per-Click (CPC) advertising and Cost-Per-Mille (CPM) advertising, Google Adwords offers site-targeted advertising for text, banner and rich-media ads.
PPC advertising can also help to give your brand immediate search engine presence for your offline campaigns, when these might not yet be highly ranked in the natural search results.
PPC advertising and SEO (search engine optimisation) should go hand in hand to create an effective SEM (search engine marketing) strategy
