Pay per click, or PPC for short, can be split into two categories, search and display. Both search and display advertising offers a tremendous reach for your business. With total control on spend and budgets, plus, to the last penny reporting. Pay per click can help any business, big or small.
PPC For Search
Simply put, PPC for search is where you set a bid in an auction on certain keywords that are relevant for your business. However, this is an auction like no other. The highest bidder is not necessarily the one who appears at the top of the search results. As search engines want to ensure users keep coming back to their site, they have to show relevant results, otherwise, users would get annoyed with the poor results and go elsewhere. With this in mind, every time there is a search, the auction takes into consideration a number of other factors along with the bid. They also look at factors such as relevancy, ad quality landing page experience and more.
PPC For Display
It’s a similar case with display advertising. Again you enter a maximum bid but instead of bidding on keyword searches, you can target certain types of websites, apps, users who have shown an interest in a topic, demographics, locations etc.
Display ads can be in a number of formats including text, static image, animated image and video. Display can offer a number of opportunities for your business including brand awareness, increasing sales and driving loyalty in your brand.
Google currently enjoys around 90% of search traffic in the UK. The remainder of the traffic then being split by the likes of Bing, Yahoo, DuckDuckGo etc. Advertising with Google search is a no brainer, but don’t count out the others. Due to the sheer volume of searches, if you’re not advertising on Bing, you could be missing out on literally millions of opportunities.
