Pay Per Click - An Alternative to SEO

1552 Goldcliff Circle Washington, DC (PressExposure) April 22, 2009 -- There are various approaches that one can take in promoting a site online. The most popular of these is generally described as Search Engine Optimization (SEO). However, despite being the most widely employed strategy at present, SEO takes months to see per click internet advertising, on the other hand, gives you results right away.

One of the more recent strategies being utilized by web page owners, pay per click (PPC) is an approach that showcases the owner’s site as an advertisement. It promotes a site by allowing it to appear as one of the first three sponsored ads on the top left or one of the sponsored ads on the on the right side of the search query results.

Basically, pay per click advertising services work to make a site more accessible by using the same principles that a popup utilizes. However, in contrast to popups, these ads are already incorporated on the page and the owner pays the pay per click advertising company if someone, hopefully a potential client, clicks on the link or ad. This makes pay per click faster than SEO when it comes to showing outcome.

Although speed is one of its most rewarding characteristics, it is not the only thing that makes pay per click an efficient marketing strategy. It also allows the client to customize the specific page that the client wants to promote. This enables the ad to cater to a specific product or service that would attract appropriate customers. It helps target the right customers while filtering out visitors who just accidentally happen to find the site. In the end, this leads to higher conversion rate for many websites.

Pay per click advertisements are obtained by procuring keywords or search phrases and then agreeing on the cost of each click. A client can set the budget on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis, after which, when the set budget is reached, the ads are then removed.

Usually, pay per click advertising is done in combination with SEO. This optimizes the action of both strategies to promote sites faster and more efficiently. In fact, when done correctly, the combination of both approaches can make up for the expenses in employing PPC services.
