Pay Per Click Advertising (PPC)

Using Google AdWords for Your PPC Campaign

Pay per click
(PPC) advertising may be one of the easiest ways to generate traffic to your website and score some decent profits from your search engine marketing campaign. Google AdWords is the most popular form of pay per click advertising for small businesses, partly because of Google's popularity, and partly because it allows you to control your expenses by setting daily maximums for each ad.

With PPC, you pay only when someone clicks your ad and visits your Website. Ads may be placed on search engine results pages (SERP) or on Websites that are identified as related to your targeted keywords.

How much you pay for each click depends on how much you're willing to bid for your selected keywords, and in Google AdWords, to some extent on your "Quality Score". The higher your bid (and, in Google, the higher your Quality Score), the better chance you'll have of getting your ad listed at the top of the ads displayed on the page. When managed skillfully, pay-per-click advertising can help you attract prospects to your Website and convert your prospects to paying customers.

Other Ways Google AdWords Can Help You

Google AdWords is not only a pay per click advertising outlet, it's a powerful tool that can be used as an advertising template for your online ads. Additionally, as arguably the largest web-based global marketing network, Google is a good way to get exposure for your Website on the Internet. You can get information about Google AdWords from just about every search engine results page Google displays by clicking the Advertising Programs link at the bottom of the AdWords welcome page. By placing the highest bid on a keyword or keyword phrase you can get great noticed when someone types your keyword into their browser for a Google search.

Setting Up and Managing Google AdWords

Google AdWords makes pay per click advertising easy to manage. You create an account, select potential keywords, write your ad and then place your bid per click and set your daily maximum for your targeted keywords. You decide if you want your ads to appear only on Google's search pages (Search Network) or on other Web sites (Content Network - Google AdSense) or both. You can also use site targeting that allows you to select individual websites where your ads will appear, such as on this about home business website. Your ads are subject to Google's approval but the approval process and launching your ads happens very, very quickly.

There are plenty of sites that want to host your ads, too, because making money with Google AdSense has become a hot business of its own. When sites place your Google AdWords ads on their site and a link is clicked, part of your Google AdWords payment is directed to the owner of the site through Google AdSense.
