Pay Per Click (PPC) advertising, through search engine giants like Google, can kickstart an influx of vital traffic to your company’s website. However, it’s a complicated art to master and can often be a far more powerful tool when a professional digital marketing agency, like KW Digital, are driving your PPC campaign for you.
What is PPC?
Pay per click (PPC), also known as cost per click or adwords, is an internet advertising model used to direct traffic to websites. Advertisers pay the publisher, typically a website owner, when the ad is clicked. In its simplest sense, it can be summed up as the amount spent to get an advertisement clicked.
With search engines, advertisers typically bid on keyword phrases relevant to their target market. Whereas content sites generally charge a fixed price per click rather than a bidding system. PPC ‘display’ advertisements, or ‘banner’ ads, are shown on web sites, or search engine results with related content, that have agreed to show ads.
The benefits of PPC for your company
Searchers click on paid search ads more often than any other form of digital advertising. This means that the vast majority of people are open to being advertised to, as long as the products and services advertised fit their needs. Because we use search engines when we’re looking for products and services, the results, including the ads, are normally relevant to what we’re looking for. Google has also developed a formula to ensure that PPC ads meet a user’s needs.
Google AdWords’ 1-10 Quality Score, reported for each keyword in your account, is an estimate of the quality of your ads and landing pages triggered by that keyword. A high-Quality Score means that Google’s systems think your ad and landing page are relevant and useful to someone looking at your ad.
Because searchers reveal their intent through their search query, advertisers can measure the quality of traffic that results from search engine clicks. So PPC enables search engines to cater to searchers and advertisers simultaneously. The searchers make up the user-base, while the advertisers provide a revenue stream. Search engines want to provide relevant results, as a priority, as well as offer a targeted, profitable advertising channel.
