What is PPC?

PPC adsIf you have looked into the world of internet marketing, you have probably heard of PPC. So what exactly is PPC? PPC stands for pay per click and refers to the ads that show up on Google’s results. These ads are found at the very top of the results page and to the right hand side. They say “Ad” next to them and are there because of money paid to Google.

When someone clicks on one of these ads the company who placed it there literally pays per click for that ad.

PPC vs. Organic SEO

So the question is often asked of us, which is better for my roofing company, PPC or organic SEO? The answer is both in very different ways. For long term results, organic is a much better route. Organic results are the webpages that pull up by merit of a proper web presence. They do not pay for their standing and they do not pay for the clicks they receive.
