Google Adwords for paid search

Pay Per Click Advertising

In addition to doing “optimization” to make a website more visible in the search engine’s “main” or “natural results,” you should also balance optimization with “Sponsored Ads” or “Keyword Buys” known as “Pay Per Click” or “Pay for Position” advertising. Statistics show that a blended strategy of PPC and SEO together works best. Pay Per Click Campaigns, if selected, are set up immediately to establish immediate paid ranks while the “natural” optimization is building.

If you are just getting started in this arena, initial campaigns can help you identify low-cost / high-ROI phrases that you should pay for year ‘round. For example, if a term such as Data Recovery is $20 per click, but Data Recovery New Hampshire and Data Recovery Services are only 10-to-30 cents per click, these cheaper terms at minimum should be set to bring you cheap traffic continually. The higher cost terms can be saved for ongoing pay per click management to help avoid overspending.
