What is pay per click (PPC)?

PPC stands for pay-per-click, which is a marketing method that uses sponsored listings and adverts to drive traffic to a website.  In this model, advertisers pay a fee each time someone clicks their ad hence the name ‘pay-per-click’.

Advertisers can bid on words or phrases that, when searched, will display their advertisement. With PPC, you pay each time someone clicks on that ad to get to your website.
