What is PPC?

PPC is online advertising in which you pay a specific amount of money to Google every time a potential customer clicks on your advertisement. The amount of money you allocate is totally up to you.

How does PPC work?

Let’s say you’re looking for an online florist. When you search for this you will notice an abundance of search results. The first three results state ‘Ad’ to the left of the headline. These ad placements are a result of PPC, where online advertisers have paid Google to have their advertisement appear in sponsored/ad results and partner sites. All other results on the page are organic. These search results are displayed because they’ve been deemed popular by Google’s algorithms, meaning they contain relevant and useful content that users trust.

While both organic and paid searches appear in the search results, PPC allows your ad to appear in the ad results. But, the best part about PPC is that you only pay when someone clicks on your ad.
