What is PPC? Pay Per Click

PPC is a shortcut & stands for pay-per-click, its an online system model made of internet marketing in which other online advertisers pay a certain fee each time one of their ads is clicked (not viewed that is considered PPM, paid per impression). … Search engines carefully reward advertisers who can create engaging, relevant, intelligently targeted pay-per-click campaigns by charging them less for any ad clicks

There are many different PPC networks that all provide similar services, allow local businesses and certain events/product promotions in the targeted country, city, users by age/genre, and more.


PPC & keywords

The average you’re looking to spend online per 1 targeted audience click averages around $1.50 to $2.00, this is considered for the normal type of keywords, why do we say keywords? All PPC costs are always based on keywords advertisers wish to target, for example, insurance keywords such as “cheap car insurance” or “quick insurance quote” will cost anywhere around $13 per 1 click, since there’s bigger competition behind these keywords, insurance companies are willing to spend an average of $15 per click, whereas keywords such as “local painter” “painter near my city” will cost an average of $5.00 per click.
