What is PPC (pay-per-click marketing)?

Pay-per-click marketing is an advertising strategy where advertisers pay a small fee every time someone clicks on one of their ads. The most common type of PPC ads appear on search engine results pages, but they can also display on social media platforms and websites.

On search engines, PPC ads display at the top or bottom of the results page and are tagged with the word “Ad” or “Sponsored” to delineate them from organic results. PPC ads can also appear in map search results.

How does PPC work?

In PPC advertising, advertisers bid to have their ads displayed when a user enters a particular keyword or keyphrase in a search engine. When a user enters a targeted keyword, the ad with the winning bid appears on the user’s results page.

The two most important factors that go into deciding the winner of an ad auction are the maximum bid price and the ad’s Quality Score.

The maximum bid price is the highest dollar amount the advertiser is willing to pay for each click on their ad. Higher PPC bidding amounts are more advantageous to search engines, so higher bids have a better chance of winning an auction.

Search engines want users to have a good experience, so they also consider an ad’s Quality Score when deciding which PPC ads to display. A Quality Score takes into account the ad’s relevance to the keyword, the expected clickthrough-rate of the ad, and the landing page experience provided by the advertiser.

Why should I invest in PPC advertising for my business?

PPC advertising delivers fast, cost-effective, measurable results while also expanding your presence on search engines beyond what SEO can do alone.

With PPC ads, it’s possible to generate leads almost immediately after your first ad displays on a search engine results page. SEO, by contrast, can take months to generate a significant amount of traffic. So while SEO provides great returns in the long run, PPC is a perfect complement to it for fast results.

Many advertisers find PPC marketing to be more cost effective than other options like TV or billboard ads. That’s because you only pay when someone clicks on an ad.

There is also more transparency around the results of pay-per-click ads. It’s possible to see, in real time, how many people take certain actions from an ad. And with search ad extensions, you can track who places a call, fills out a form, or requests a quote. It’s difficult to achieve that level of attribution from print or TV advertising.

How do PPC management services work?

PPC management is the process of performing all the tasks involved in PPC advertising. PPC management will typically include setting up a PPC account, keyword selection, budget allocation, and ad optimization.

A PPC management company or paid search agency will typically take on PPC management. Some PPC management services are provided by PPC experts, some are software-based, and a few combine both. Many PPC companies offer Bing and Google Ads management services.

PPC management services are used by businesses to free up their time and to take advantage of the experience of PPC experts. Since pay-per-click advertising benefits from a large data set and expertise to inform keyword selection and bid strategies, PPC companies can often deliver better results in the form of more leads and lower PPC costs than a business can achieve in house.

How much do PPC ads cost?

In PPC advertising, you’ll be charged a small fee every time someone clicks on your ad. The cost of PPC depends on the price you pay for each click and the maximum budget you’ve allocated in the PPC auction.

The average cost per click varies by the competitiveness of the keyword, the industry, and the geography of the target audience. For example, in our 2023 Google Ads Benchmark Report, we found a wide range of costs that differed sharply from one industry to the next.

The maximum budget allocated to PPC ads is determined by the advertiser. In PPC auctions, it’s important that the budget is optimized so it’s spent on the keywords and publishers that deliver the most leads for the least amount of money. Experienced PPC management companies can help maximize the return from PPC ads.
