Pay Per Click
Pay Per Click (PPC) is a kind of digital marketing where advertisers bid for advert placement positions on numerous search terms. They can use such search engines as Google, Bing and Yahoo, though, Google continues to be the largest global platform preferred by online marketers.
PPC, fundamentally, is buying visits to your websites and advertiser pay each time the ad is clicked – hence, Pay Per Click. Generally, the more you bid per click, the higher you will appear in search engine results.
How does PPC work?
When customers type a search query, an auction is raised where each advert relating to the search query bids against each other.
Generally, you would think the highest bid would be at the top of the search, however, such auctions vary. For example, Google uses Ad Rank, a bidding metric which incorporates the bid with the calibre of the advert. Therefore, the advert with the highest Ad Rank will gain the top spot.
