What is PPC?

If you have looked into internet marketing for your company, you have likely heard of PPC. PPC campaigns refer to the results that show up on Google because of a paid for ad placement. These “ads” show up on the top of the results page and on the right hand side. They are called pay per click because you literally pay every time someone clicks on your ad.

Should I use PPC for my business?

Investing in organic SEO is the best long term marketing plan. Organic results show up based on the merit of a proper web presence. These results do not cost you anything when someone clicks on them.
