If you do not have a large number of back-links for your blog, this might not be a good option for you.

    Does Anyone Know A Good Price To Pay For A Pay-to-click Ad? I’m doing an internet marketing project where I have to make up hypothetical pay per click ads. I just have no idea what the rates are, what is considered expensive?

      Set-up your own Google AdWords account and run use the Keyword Tool to help build a list with CPC information. The Setup is free and you won't be charged unless you setup an ad. Even if you don't run an ad, you will still have access to all of the tools.

      Keywords can range from $5.00 a click to $$0.05 a click...most will be between $0.50 and $1.00.

      The kicker of your project will be that CPC's don't matter nearly as much as ROI. Through a bunch of tools like Omniture SearchCenter or DART Search, you can track how many sales you drive through your cpc campaign. Most business won't care if you spend $100 or $100,000 as long as you make more than what you spend.

      Use a conversion rate of 2% (most websites operate around that, although it is not uncommon have a higher conversion rate). Depending on what your project states, multiply your ave. sales value times how many conversions you have to find out the ave revenue amount (12 conversion x $35/sale = $420).

      By using an ROAS formula, you can get the ROI (Sales Amount/ Adverting Cost).

      If you can master those numbers, you will surely be able to go above and beyond your answer for your project.

    How Can I Get People To Find Out About My Website Without Paying Big Money For Search Engine Optimisation? How can i get my website to come up on the first pages of search engines for free and without pay per click (which is a total waste of money)?

      A few preliminary remarks:
      1) WebSITES don’t rank in the search engines, rather webPAGES do. Most websites have numerous webpages, and each webpage has the potential to show up in the search results of the major search engines (i.e., Google, Yahoo, MSN, and Ask.com).

      2) Sites show up in the search engines after someone searches for a particular keyword (a keyword is a short, 2 – 5 word phrases — also known as search terms). This means that what we really want to know is what do we have to do to help a particular webpage rank well in the search engine for a particular keyword phrase.

      3) Not all webpages and keywords are equally valuable when it comes to ranking well in the search engine. Some keyword phrases are more popular than other keyword phrases, some less so. Some keyword phrases are more relevant to your product and services, some less so. It is important to clarify your goals for ranking well so that you can gain the maximum benefit from showing up in the search engine results.

      With that said, here is an article which summarizes the steps you need to take to rank well in the search engines: http://www.sembasics.com/sem-blog/the-se
      The site contains other articles which explain in-depth how to do each of the steps outlined in the article (those tutorials can be reached here: http://www.sembasics.com/sem-blog/search

      Here is a brief outline of the article:

      1) Create a search engine friendly website (proper use of HTML code, good URLs, etc.). If the search engines can’t process your site, you can’t rank well, no matter what else you do — your site will essentially be invisible to them.

      2) Good keyword research — find the words and phrases that your customers use to search for your products, organize those keywords according to popularity and competition.

      3) Create web pages each of which is focused around 1 – 2 keywords.

      4) Get high-quality links from related, high-quality sites which link directly to the appropriate web page. This is perhaps the most important part of ranking well in the search engine, although it’s effectiveness is determined by how well you do the other steps in this process.

      5) Track and analyze your optimization results so as to improve the effectiveness of your optimization campaign.

      No, I think most just do it for the love of it. Sometimes, they might use a product or service in their tutorial, and indirectly advertise their product, shop, etc.

    Is There Any Service Like Adsense That Pays PER PAGE VIEW And Not CLICKS? There’s so many services like adsense that pay per clicks on ads only. I just started my own website last week, its very comprehensive and its not done yet but its starting to get views. I have adsense on there and all I see is 500 views, 1 click and 6 cents, how horrible. What’s worse is I don’t know how many of those 500 views are mine unfortunately. So is there any service that will pay per unique pageview on your website? You know like you install it on your website and it will pay say $1.50 per 1000 unique views or whatever… Is there anything like that for your own blog or website?

      Adsense actually pays both ways depending on the ad and the ad campaign. Also remember that a lot of those views might be automated spiders and the like. I would add the code for Google analytics to the end of each page so you can fully track who and what is vising your site.

      Remember that 500 views per day isn’t considered a ton at all and you’ll need to get that into the many thousands and keep the theme tight so that the ads are relevant. That is the key.

      Yes you can get paid, but you wont click on your own ads, you need to promote your blog , if the people click your ads from another places you will get paid.
      If you click those ads its not a problem, but you don’t get paid.

      All the best and promote your website well.

    How Much Do Pay Per Click Ads Cost? Lets Say, Monthly?

    View Comment

      That depends on how many clicks you get. The more clicks per month you get, the more per month it will cost.

      That is why they decided on the catchy name, “pay per click”.

    What Is “Pay Per Click”? I was just wondering what “Pay Per Click” is. Also i want to know if it would be good for me. I am 14 with a lot of free time other then school which i am gone for 6-7 hours. But a good overview of this pay per click is.
    Alright so how do i create a infrastucure website?

      This is term used for how advertisers pay web sites for the posting of the ads.

      Google Ads is a good example. When you do a Google Search (say) there are ads on the right hand side of your page as it comes up. (some on the top of the page marked in blue too) ~ If a person clicks on those ads, the person posting those ads “pays per click” on the ad. X cents or dollars are paid to the company posting the ad on their site.

      Not something you’d benefit from unless you wish to build an infrastructure of web presence that other people would pay you to have their advertising on your site for.

    Does Anyone Know (approximately) How Much Ad Networks Like Adsense Pay You Per Click When You Post Their Ads? They don’t tell you on their adsense website. But if you know about how much similar ad networks pay, please do tell! I’ll give you 10 points.

    View Comment

      Banner ad networks such as Burstmedia or TribalFusion states clearly how much you will get paid because the price of their ads are fixed when they sell the ads to their advertisers. Most banner ad networks pay anywhere from $1-5 CPM depending on the ad format, while CPC rates are typically as low as $0.05 or $0.98 per click.

      Adsense, however, does not operate that way. You cannot tell how much the cost per click of the ads in your site will be for the following reasons:

      1. There is no set price that advertisers pay in Adsense — it’s a bidding system where the highest bids for the keyword are shown in your site.

      2. Advertisers are allowed to target publishers they want their ads to show. And if your site is chosen by advertiser, there is a chance that they will offer a higher paying ads than the advertisers competing on a per click basis.

      3. Smartpricing. Smartpricing – the big unknown in Adsense. No one knows how this actually works. But it can affect the pricing of the ads on your site. If the advertiser paid for $0.50/click – but your site is smartpriced – then the cost may be discounted lower (e.g. $0.25). So you may try to develop a site based on high paying keywords but if smartpricing gets to you, then you may not get as much per click as what you are expecting from your keywords.

      Here is Google’s explanation of smart pricing https://adwords.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=9562&query=smart+pricing&topic=0&type=f

      —————————-
      Google’s smart pricing feature automatically adjusts the cost of a keyword-targeted content click based on its effectiveness compared to a search click. So if our data shows that a click from a content page is less likely to turn into actionable business results — such as online sales, registrations, phone calls, or newsletter signups — we reduce the price you pay for that click.
      —————————-

      So we can have two exactly the same site in terms of topic. But if you do not get targeted ads and worse, you’ve been smartpriced, I can earn $1.50 per click while you earn only $0.05 per click — on the SAME keywords.

      PPC is one of the best ways to advertise your business and drive sales and traffic. In short it works like this: When someone searches for a specific keyword phrase or product/service on a search engine, advertiser PPC ads are rendered along with the search results. Ads are populated in the serp's (search engine results page) according to quality score and relevancy. The great thing with PPC is that you only have to pay for actual clicks made on your ads. If you are interested in learning more about PPC and associated advanced strategies, you should definitely take a look at the following article at:

      Online advertising companies pay steadily on a monthly basis IF AND ONLY IF your site delivers for them, whether they are looking for impressions or clicks or lead or referrals.

      Make sure your site delivers — it has good original content, the right traffic, and the right type of audience — then ad agencies will pay you steadily.

      But here are some alternatives:

      1. Join an advertising network. Advertising networks are organizations that aggregate Web sites that offer advertising space, and sell banner ads (and other advertising options) across them. Traffic requirement is often a minimum of 5,000 monthly impressions, although many do not accept sites hosted by free page services.

      Burst Media http://www.burstmedia.com
      Fastclick (ValueClick). http://www.fastclick.com
      Advertising.com. http://www.advertising.com
      Tribal Fusion http://www.tribalfusion.com

      2. Participate in contextual advertising networks. Contextual advertising are text ads delivered based on the content of the web page using an automated system.

    What Are The Hidden Truths And Moment Of Truth Regarding Pay Per Click Advertsing And Does It Work??? Wanna info on ROI, reducing CPC and how to run an effective PPC campaign and is it better to use a third party company to write and run your ads?

    View Comment

      The first things you should consider are your average net profit per sale before paying for PPC advertising, and your conversion rate from visitor to sale. Without that data, you have no starting point. An alternative to the average profit per sale is the lifetime value of a new customer, low estimate if needed.

      With that data, you can determine what you can pay for each click. If your average profit per sale is $10 and your conversion rate is 1%, then your breakeven point is 10? per click. (avg profit per sale times conversion rate) Run the numbers for your own product/service.

      The key factors are CTR (click through rate), your trigger keyword phrases (the reason for keyword research for PPC), the “system” you funnel your leads through (better systems give better conversions), and your ability to test your trigger keyword phrases, your ads, and your landing page(s).

      So any “hidden truths” about making PPC work are to apply business formulas, testing everything to steadily improve profitability over time, and the keyword research to determine and test which keyword phrases tend to bring in the most targeted, easiest to convert buyers – unless your strategy is to give the best research available online for whatever you’re selling (tough to do in most fields).

      Increasing ROI is a factor of the above. Reducing CPC is a factor of bidding lower and not really a good thing to have to reduce. What you want to reduce is cost per sale or cost per acquisition, and that is reducible through actual testing of keyword phrases that trigger the ads, the ads themselves, and the landing pages, relevancy of.

      Is it better to use a third party to run your campaigns? Only if they bring in more profits than they cost to run the campaign. Again, run a test to find out. Have someone from your company run a campaign for 3-4 months, hire a 3rd party for the same time period and compare results.

      I hope this helps.

    What Is The PPC (pay Per Click)? I Want to Learn PPC And What can i Start a PPC?

    Please Give me a Suggestion for PPC?

    View Comment

      PPC, or Pay Per Click, is an advertising solution that allows you to run ads on the search engines and on websites. Every time someone clicks on one of your ads you are charged for that click.

      The most well know and widely used platform for this is Google AdWords. With an AdWords account you can bid on keywords and create ads that will show in Google’s Sponsored Links on their Search Results Pages (top left and down the right hand column).

      Pay Per Click works on the simple model of the more you pay and the higher quality your PPC account is the higher your ads will show and the more they will show throughout a given period of time.

      Cons of PPC are that it can be expensive and the ads stop running when you stop paying.

      Pros of PPC are that it is the fastest and most immediate way to get traffic to your site directly from an ad campaign. In addition, PPC allows you to gather useful data about which keywords and phrases relevant to your site convert the best and provide the highest possible ROI.

      I highly recommend that you do a little research, via AdWords, to learn about the platform before throwing any money at an account as PPC is one of the fastest ways to burn money if not setup correctly. There are tons of companies that can manage your PPC account for you, but I suggest being very cautious with most of these as too many of them take advantage of unknowing customers. Just do some research and you will be fine…

      On Google and other browsers, the adverts you see over on the right hand side are paid for according to the number of people who click on them. The more you are willing to pay per click, the better display position your ad will get.

    How Does Pay Per Click Work On The Internet ?

    View Comment

      It’s an auction based model and advertisers bid on certain keywords at a cost per click that are relevant to the product or service they offer. Assuming that you are referring to PPC as it relates to search engines like Google, Yahoo, Bing, ect. – the highest bidder gets the most visibility in the search result pages. Each click charges the advertisers account. A set group of keyword an advertiser bids on can be associated with text or display ads. Hope this helps.
