One mistake that most people tend to make at some point in their Internet marketing career is lumping all forms of advertising into one particular mold. This is often done in the case of pay per click marketing. People are aware that absolute fortunes are being made through the Google Adwords system, so they naturally think that any pay per click marketing system will work wonders for their business. Is this the case? Let’s take a look at a few of the pay per click marketing systems that are available online and see which ones will do the most for your business.
Of course, the king of all pay per click marketing systems is run by Google. It is their Adwords system that drives the entire process. Once you choose your relevant keywords and ads that go into the system, they will almost immediately be displayed alongside the search engine result pages. Not only that, you also have the choice of whether to display them on millions of websites around the world through the Google Adsense system. This can get your website a lot of exposure and traffic in a short period of time. If used correctly, it can make your business an almost immediate success.
The second on the list of pay per click marketing systems is Yahoo search marketing or YSM for short. This is also advertising that is available through a very reputable source and you can receive a decent amount of traffic by using this system as well. YSM tends to be a little bit more difficult to understand than the AdWords system but once you get the hang of it, it is easy to add keywords or change your ads and manage your entire campaign online. Even though they don’t send as much traffic as Google, you still get some very qualified clicks by using this program.
A newcomer on to the pay per click marketing scene is MSN. Their system still has, in my opinion, some bugs that need to be worked out in order for it to be truly user-friendly. It still is not a system, however, that should be overlooked if you are serious about your pay per click marketing efforts. Although MSN receives a small share of searchers in comparison with Google and Yahoo, they do tend to be those that purchase more readily. If you have the time to learn it, the system can send you some qualified traffic on a consistent basis.
Finally, we have all of the other pay per click marketing systems that are available. Many of the systems will not send you much traffic, if any at all and many of them are riddled with click fraud problems. There are a few in there, however, that can send you the traffic that you need but these take a distant backseat to the big three. If you have the time for it and the budget, they are worth doing some experimenting.
