Pay per click seems easy on the surface but can quickly get overwhelming. There are a ton of things (like click through rates, advanced bids, extensions, etc.) that have to be considered. But, there is only one thing you should focus on if you really want to succeed.
When it comes to pay-per-click advertising, should you bid on keywords relating to a competitor's brands and products? There isn't an easy answer to this popular question. In fact, there are two distinct schools of thought on this matter.

Google and the other search engines will charge you a lot more money, and display your ads a lot less often, if they feel your keywords, ad copy, and landing pages don’t stack up well to what searchers want or are expecting.
One of the biggest concerns website owners have about pay-per-click advertising is that the traffic they generate from their ads will not make up for the money they spend on clicks. It all comes down to return-on-investment, ensuring that the money spent on ads is covered and exceeded by lead conversions. If you are apprehensive about PPC marketing, the tips below will provide a guaranteed blueprint for your success.
