What is PPC?
PPC stands for PAY-PER-CLICK. It is a type of internet marketing where advertisers pay a fee each time their ad is clicked on. It is a way advertisers are able to buy their visitors rather than earn them organically.
One of the most popular forms of PPC is search engine advertising. Search engine advertising allows advertisers to bid on ad placement when someone searches for a keyword that relates to the advertisers business. For example, if we bid on the keyword “Denver Marketing”, our ad might show up on the top spot on the Google results page.
Every time someone clicks on our ad, it sends a visitor to our website. In turn we then have to pay the search engine a fee. If you are using PPC correctly the fee is is not a huge factor because the actual visit holds more value than what the advertiser is paying for it. For example if we as a advertiser were to pay $2 for the click, but if the result of that click ended in a $200 sale – then the profit greatly outweighs the initial cost.
Building a successful PPC campaign is extensive. You need to research which keywords will best target your focus group and then also be able to organize the keywords into organized campaigns and ad groups. From there you must set up optimized landing pages for conversions. When advertisers can create relevant and well targeted PPC campaigns search engines will reward those advertisers by charging them less for those ad clicks. When Google charges less, it means larger profits for the business.
Google Ads is the number one PPC advertising in the world. Their platform allows advertisers to not only appear on the search engine but also on other Google properties. Google ads uses a PPC model to operate. Whenever a search is started, Google chooses from a group of advertisers and picks who will “win” and be able to appear in the ad space on the pages of the search results.
Google picks these “winners” based off of several factors. It uses a combination of the quality, including relevance of the keywords, and the size of the keyword bids. Google uses the CPC Bid – this is the highest amount the advertiser is willing to spend; and the Quality Score – this is basically your value rate which includes your click through rate, quality of landing page and your relevance. Using this calculated system Google is able to allow advertisers to be able to reach their target customers while staying within their budget. You can think of it like an auction.
