Simply put it is a form of internet advertising where your ad is shown online; either on a search engine results page (e.g. Google, Bing) or on another website (e.g. CNN, Fox News etc.) and you only pay for that ad if someone clicks on it. Not everyone sees your ad. This is by design as we only want to show your ads to people who are most likely to use your product or service.
The quickest way to generate relevant traffic to your website is through a optimized and targeted PPC marketing campaign.
