What is PPC and how does it work?

PPC (pay-per-click), is a form of online advertising where you’ll pay a specific amount each time a user clicks on one of your ads, helping you to attract high-quality traffic to your website. This is often used to refer to paid search but can also be used to describe targeted display advertising and paid social.

Your paid ads can feature text, images and in some cases video – known for its multiple targeting options, PPC ads can target your audience’s device, location, and interests.

Once live your PPC ads will appear in the top four search engine positions, with a small ‘Ad’ marker next to them indicating to users they’re a paid advert.

What is PPC management?

PPC management is the process of reviewing and optimising your online ad spend to help you achieve your marketing goals. At LOCALiQ we’re paid search experts – we’ll manage your campaigns across the different search engine and social media networks, ensuring your ads reach the right audience at the right time.

Our Cross Media Optimisation tool complements this perfectly, our UK-first marketing technology makes it easier for you to allocate your budget on successful channels and networks, so you achieve the optimal return on ad spend (ROAS) for your audience’s paid search queries.

What's the difference between PPC and paid search?

PPC is any form of pay-per-click advertising (search engines, display advertising, paid social), whereas paid search relates to running paid ads within the search engines.

Which paid search platforms do you use?

At LOCALiQ we use a variety of different methods for our paid ads – from search engines (Google and Bing) to social media (Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, TikTok and Twitter) and display advertising (Google Display Network (GDN), Bing and our Newsquest Media network) we’ve got you covered.

Which factors contribute to my PPC costs?

In PPC, your pay-per-click costs are centred around your bid, targeting and ad quality. The key to cost-effective paid ads is to focus on creating high-quality adverts at a lower cost-per-click, a mantra we focus on at LOCALiQ.


Your bid is how much you’re willing to pay each time someone clicks on your advert. You can sometimes pay less, but you’ll never end up paying more than your limit.


Different keywords and demographics are another factor to consider for your budget. Bidding on short-tail keywords (“ppc”) will cost you more per click than long-tail keywords (“paid search marketing agency in Brighton”), however with the higher costs you are more likely to reach a wider audience.

Ad quality

Within PPC marketing spending more than your competitors doesn’t always give you the advantage. Search engines will assess the quality and relevance of your paid ads, with high-quality ads achieving lower costs than low-quality ads, helping you to compete against bigger businesses.

How much do paid ads cost?

The prices for your cost-per-click can vary – they depend on your industry, location and the competition for your chosen keywords – but you can expect to pay between 10p to £10.00 per click.
