PPC stands for pay-per-click, or online advertising type when you only pay when a user clicks on your ad.

Search Engine Advertising

This kind of ads can be seen on search engines like Google, Bing and Yandex. The ads are the top 4-5 results on the search engine and they are clearly marked as ads. The advertisers’ platform to create, manage and optimised ads is called Google AdWords. Search engine ads appear based on keywords related to the users’ search queries. Advertisers compete to show their ads in an online auction, by bidding on different keywords.

Display Advertising

PPC advertising lives also on many other platforms which can be summarised as display advertising. If you use Google AdWords you can advertise on YouTube, Gmail, Google Play and the Google Display Network. The Google Display Network is a large network of websites which have partnered with Google to display ads between their content. These ads are known as banners, or image ads. In this section you will find articles about both, Advertising on Search Engines and the Google Display Network.
