| Should You Pay for PPC
on Individual Websites?
There are a lot of companies that are running their own pay per
click program on their website, not wanting to go with Google
Adsense, Yahoo Overture, or MSN Adcenter. There are many reasons
why they might be doing this.
Have you ever thought about advertising directly on their site?
And you don't even have to go through Google Adsense, Yahoo Overture,
or MSN Adcenter!
The first reason is that they want better control. They want to
be able to better control what advertisements they want to display
on their website. This makes sense, because they don't want to
worry about their competitors being on their website, or any other
company that might be taking business away from them. Yes, the
admin panels for Google Adsense and Yahoo YPN allow you to "block"
competitors, but again, it's going to be hard for them to know

creating a win-win situation. As more, and better traffic flow
through the advertisements, the advertising clients are more likely
to renew their subscriptions and keep their ads running longer
on their website.

currently using pay per click for your advertising campaign, you

By finding an individual website to advertise on, you know exactly
who the audience is and what type of people will see your ad,
click on your ad to come to your website, and hopefully purchase
your product or service.

it is hard to capture new clients and any advantage that you can
have over your competitor should be used.

they have advertisements on their site. Then check to see if they
are actually providing the advertisements through their own software.
Many sites will tell you what rates they charge and how to get
