Pay Per Click
PPC, or pay-per-click, is a form of online advertising through Google, Bing and Yahoo! that drives traffic to your website. It works by displaying your advert to people based on the words and phrases that they search for. You then pay for the click if that person decides to click through to your website.
PPC is an excellent way to generate almost immediate traffic to your website. This is ideal if you have a brand new site and need to gain some initial traffic while you wait for natural organic traffic to develop. It’s also a useful tool to generate traffic to sales landing pages with special offers and promotions that are likely to draw a click.

How to get the most from your PPC campaign
The ideal goal of any successful PPC campaign is for you to make more money in sales from converting clicks into customers than you pay to get those clicks in the first place. To achieve this, you need to ensure that your website matches the expectations of anyone choosing to click on your PPC advert. This includes:
- Sending visitors to the correct page
- Honouring any special offers or claims listed in your advert
- Making sure relevant information is easy to find
- Ensuring the page loads fast with no errors
- Providing a clear way for visitors to convert into customers
What’s included in your PPC campaign?
Your PPC campaign includes the following:
The words and phrases related to what you do. For example, “emergency plumber” or “24-hour locksmith”. These words and phrases are then matched with the keywords that people type into search engines.
Your ad text includes two headlines, a description and a URL to your page. We can also include your business phone number and address – however, there are no guarantees that the search engines will choose to show them.
This is essentially the location you want to cover. So, if you want your advert to appear in Guildford, this will be added as a GEO modifier. Your ad can also be shown to searchers based on the location of their IP address.
This is the pot used to fund your PPC adverts. We spread this fund across the month by showing your advert intermittently, rather than using up your entire PPC fund within the first couple of weeks by showing it 24/7.
