How does PPC work?
PPC ads are online ads that are placed in strategic locations targeting customers who have already shown an interest in the products and services your company offers. In most cases, these ads will be featured in search engine results pages (SERPs) when a potential customer searches for keywords that directly relate to your business. The best part is, you only pay for the advertising when someone clicks on the ad. Your ads can be linked to your website, a custom landing page, social media profiles, or any of your other online properties.
How much does Pay-Per-Click cost?
We work with you to set a daily/monthly budget that works for your business. We will help you determine your cost per click, cost per conversion and return on investment. With that information, you can determine when your ads will be seen and only pay each time your ad is clicked.
Does my business really need Pay-Per-Click?
Using Pay-Per-Click ads is one of the most effective methods of internet marketing because it targets users through keywords. This means that you are not just blindly throwing out an ad for just anyone to see. As a result, PPC ads are used to convert potential customers into active customers more easily than other marketing methods.

What is Google’s “quality score”?
Google, like all other search engines, takes into account the maximum price you are willing to bid, as well as a composite metric called the Quality Score. It is a number comprised of a multitude of aspects, each weighed differently. Some of these factors include the keywords past click through rate (CTR), your display URL’s past CTR, your account history, the quality of your landing page, your keyword/ad relevance, your keyword/search relevance, geographic performance, your ad’s performance on a site, and your targeted devices. Understanding the right way to structure a campaign and how to use these Quality Score factors to your benefit is another advantage of employing Link Right Media’s expertise.
How do search engines rank PPC ads?
Google AdWords and Bing Ads all take into consideration a variety of factors to determine your ad’s positioning in the search results. The primary factors are your bid (the maximum you are willing to pay for each click), your quality score (which judges the relevance of our ad to the keyword searched) and the past performance of the keyword. A higher bid, a better click through rate and more tenure in the system are all factors (among others) that will allow your ad to rank higher on the search results page.
