Pay per click advertising is otherwise known as PPC and is a way to get instant traffic to your website targeting exactly the keywords you think your customers are browsing for.
It is a completely different discipline to SEO as the emphasis is not optimising for free search engine traffic, but more about paying upfront for traffic in order for the visitor to click on your ad which takes them directly to the page you have assigned on your site.
The online Pay Per Click model is very similar to the traditional advertising model used in print media such as in magazines and newspapers, in that it is made up of small word-based ads, the difference being that online it is quicker to get a result.
However one of the real benefits of the PPC model over any other is that you can accurately measure the return on investment you achieve on the basis of knowing the cost for every click and the number of clicks you get the outcome or desired action (e.g. a sale),
There are many platforms for PPC nowadays, the biggest, of course, being Google Ads. AdWords as it was originally known is Google's main source of Turnover, accounting for more than 90% of its revenue which makes them effectively the largest advertising agency on the planet.
You will see Google Ads most notably at the top and at the bottom of most Google search results pages.
If you don't see any adverts on a page you have just searched, it means there is no competition, businesses are not targeting that keyword, or it is a keyword that has no commercial intent, and therefore would be worthless targeting.
There are several other large online advertising platforms that offer viable alternatives to AdWords, one of Google's biggest rivals in this space is, of course, the Facebook ads platform.
As their online ads are driven via their own social media platform, the benefits to those who use its ads service are they can provide very granular targeting options.
Facebook tend to have a cheaper cost per click rates, plus the use of images as well as words that can be used in their ads, and you don't have to have a website as even your landing page can be on your Facebook page itself.
As always, there is far more to the pay per click advertising model than meets the eye, as doing it without any knowledge or being inexperienced can be a recipe for disaster.
