What is PPC or pay per click digital advertising?
PPC stands for pay-per-click, and is a model of internet marketing where advertisers pay a fee each time one of their ads is clicked, such as Google Ads, Facebook Ads, Instagram Ads, LinkedIn Ads, Twitter Ads... it's endless. Essentially, it’s a way of buying visits to your site or CTA (call to action), rather than attempting to “earn” those visits organically through search engine optimization.
Search engine advertising is one of the most popular forms of PPC or pay per click advertising. It allows advertisers to bid for ad placement in a search engine's sponsored links when someone searches on a keyword that is related to their business offering.
We've all seen the ads at the top of a Google search engine results page (SERP). They are labeled as an ad. Advertisers are paying, based on an auction system, to be in that spot so a potential customer will find them first.
What is Google Ads?
Google Ads (formerly known as Google AdWords) is the most popular PPC advertising system. This platform enables businesses to create ads that appear on Google’s search engine and additional Google properties.
Google Ads operates on a pay-per-click model, where advertisers will bid on keywords and key phrases and pay for each click on their advertisements. Every time a search is done, Google digs into the pool of advertisers and chooses a set of winners to appear in the valuable ad space on its search results page. The “winners” are chosen based on a combination of factors, including the quality and relevance of their keywords and ad campaigns, as well as the size of their keyword bids.
Appearing on the page is based on and advertiser’s Ad Rank, a metric calculated by multiplying two key factors – CPC Bid (the highest amount an advertiser is willing to spend) and Quality Score (a value that takes into account your click-through rate, relevance, and landing page quality). This system allows winning advertisers to reach potential customers at a cost that fits their budget. It’s essentially an auction.
What are Facebook Ads?
Almost every person on earth has a Facebook account. We've all seen an assortment of ads during our daily pilgrimage to this social media site. Facebook Ads can appear in within almost every aspect within Facebook: in News Feed on desktop, News Feed on mobile, and in the right column of Facebook on desktop.
Facebook Ad content is sometimes paired with news about social actions that your friends have taken, like liking a Page. Your friends might see news about the social actions you have taken in Facebook ads.
Facebook ads now come in several varieties. You can promote your Page, posts on your Page, actions users took, or your website itself. Despite Facebook’s increasing focus on native ads and keeping traffic on its site, you can still be successful sending users to your website.
Facebook ads are targeted to users based on their location, demographic, and profile information. Many of these options are only available on Facebook. After creating an ad, you set a budget and bid for each click or thousand impressions that your ad will receive.
