Every you look nowadays, it seems, people are claiming PPC search engine marketing is the best thing since sliced bread. And it’s great, don’t get us wrong! But it seems a lot of people who don’t know how to use PPC to its true potential are just guessing at setting things up, then letting their ad campaigns run on auto-pilot, spending hundreds of dollars, and maybe or maybe not seeing tangible results. While this approach can be wildly successful if properly configured for maximum conversions. The unfortunate drawback to relying heavily on this method for your online marketing campaign, whether seeing results or not, is as soon as you pull the plug or burn through your funds… your traffic takes a huge dive!
This is one of the biggest reasons most webmasters seek to promote their organic traffic methods with a much higher priority than paid pay-per-click advertising campaigns and sources. Even if you spend some time and money establishing organic sources of traffic (whether its helping weight your site for different keywords by buying backlinks, banners, forum marketing, etc.) on a regular basis, it is money much better spent than for the one-time clicks you’ll see with Pay-Per-Click campaigns.
