PPC can apply to both paid text links and advertisement space. Keyword phrases are used to target the right audiences with text links, and banner ads display on search engine result pages or side bars of sites that agree to host ad space.

FAQ’s about Search Engine Marketing aka PPC
With PPC it is easy to monetize a site and also drive traffic. You have to be a little creative about advertisements, placement, and keywords. People have gotten used to seeing ads and text links that go to advertisers. That’s why it’s so important that advertisers develop creative and stunning advertisements that are placed in eye-catching spaces on websites.
It can be difficult to make PPC ads attractive or to pick the right content network to place an ad. That’s why it is important to have an online marketing team that understands PPC strategy. There are a variety of other online advertising models as well, such as CPM (cost-per-mille), or CPI (cost-per-impression). In these examples, advertisers pay every time that an advertisement is viewed rather than clicked. These are currently one of the more popular advertising models because while advertisements may not be clicked they do sponsor excitement or need in viewers that may bring them to an advertiser later.
Publishers receive money based on the advertising cost and number of ads clicked. The cost of advertising usually depends on the site’s Alexa rank or popularity. Sites with more traffic will have a higher advertising costs. That’s how high ranking sites are able to monetize their sites and sell ad space so well. Advertising campaigns allow you to quickly drive traffic and monetization of your product or service.
The price of a click depends on many metrics. The time of day, the type of ad, the placement of the ad (on network and off), and the competition’s bidding for the position at the current ad campaign times. The greater number of competitors and queries will accordingly affect the cost per click.
