Buying Traffic through auction is how PPC works. You actually bid on a keyword or keyword phrase which attracts good search volume. The more competitive keywords, that is the most obvious and highly searched terms, are the most expensive . If you were to be in the Insurance industry and wanted to gain traffic for your Life products you could bid on “Life Insurance” as a key phrase. The cost of such a highly competitive phrase could run as high as £30+ PER CLICK! So you can see that the resulting sales would have to offer a very high profit indeed to justify their use in a campaign.
However, if properly managed, PPC can be a successful method to attract visitors to your site FAST! A very common mistake those who are are new to Google make, is to try and compete at the top end of their general market with the most obvious keywords as in the example above. Even if you can afford it, doesn’t necessarily produce the result that you may imagine, and certainly would be a nail-biting ROI.
