ppc advertising

pay per click | pay per call

PPC, or pay per click, is the original form of online advertising. PPC involves "bidding" for keywords and placement against other advertisers targeting the same keyword market.

Google's well known pay per click program is named "adwords" for advertisers, and "adsense" for web publishers who attract volumes of traffic and offer paid placement on their websites for keyword advertisers whose target market is relevant to the "adsense" website publishing "host". Adsense and Yahoo's "content match" programs have been mired in abuse, referred to as "click fraud" most commonly attributed to websites hosting the ads in an effort to impersonate click-throughs, and therefore adsense generated revenue. As Google and Yahoo profit from each "click-through", or impression, the "content match" feature has gained a dubious reputation, and been the subject of much debate and controversy.
