Pay Per Click Advertising, an Overview
Pay Per Click (PPC) search engine advertising is an online advertising program that allows an advertiser to pay only for each time a consumer clicks on a link to their site. PPC programs do not generate the traffic or conversion rates of organic search engine optimization websites, created by a professional search marketing and custom website design company like Dynamic Digital Advertising (DDA).
Pay Per Click Online Advertising
In Pay Per Click Advertising, advertisers are able to bid on their desired
keywords and keyword phrases and pay for placement in search results.
The idea is to generate targeted traffic to an advertiser's website.
Advertisers pay for each time a click on a sponsored ad results in a
website visit. PPC programs may seem beneficial to smaller businesses
that don't have huge advertising budgets and want to control their spending.
What they don't realize is that keyword costs increase in price at least
20% a year and acquisition costs often exceed any profit earned.
Problems with Pay Per Click
A very serious problem with Pay Per Click advertising is click fraud.
Competitors drain an advertiser's Pay Per Click budget by clicking repeatedly
on a link to their site but never make a conversion. In fact, an estimated
15%-30% of click-throughs are fraudulent, conducted either by software
created just for this purpose or by actual human beings. There are even
thousands of companies in India that can be hired that are dedicated
to clicking on a competitor's website for pennies.
It is hard to achieve an advertiser's desired results with a Pay Per
Click Program because 4 out of 5 search engine users report that they
do not click on paid placement sites1. Pay Per Click programs
can provide a website with an immediate boost in results. However, as
soon as the budget runs out or the campaign ends, the results cease.
With an organic search engine optimization campaign developed by a professional
search engine marketing custom website development company like DDA,
however, the results are unending.
