People that have websites needing traffic normally find that pay per click can be the most cost effective technique they employ to get that extra traffic. Despite many new techniques being available, this type of marketing is still very popular. If you are curious about pay per click search marketing and what it can do for you, there are a few things that you should keep in mind.
The concept is simple; by placing a text advertisement with a link to your site on a larger website that is very busy, you can direct traffic to visit yours. Then, whenever anyone clicks that ad, they will be taken to your site, and if they stay there for more than five or ten seconds, you will pay the hosting site a very small amount of money. Now, the advert you have inserted on another site is directly related to the product or services the hosting site offers otherwise the advert would be wasted. One of the most obvious advantages to pay per click is that you will only pay when people come to your site, that is, when the ad is used.
Of course with traditional advertising which is very costly, there is no guarantee any visitor will even bother looking at your ad, let alone give you any business. In the past there were many complaints about bills being run up by competitors clicking on an advert link but that is not the case. From a business viewpoint, pay per click marketing is extremely effective at targeting the exact market the business wants. The people visiting the hosting site are already looking for related products or services to those you are offering.
By now most people have experienced the Google Adwords pay per click system which has grown dramatically in recent years. All that happens is people will only see your advert if they enter a search phrase or just a single word that you have designated Google to use. The searches that are then made on that term will bring up natural results and paid examples which may show at the side or at the top of the page.
For many advertisers it can just be this simple feat that makes pay per click customers use Google. When the ad goes up, you will have a good idea as to whether or not it is effective. Almost all top companies will use pay per click as part of their marketing structure because it is perceived as being the most effective.
