Pay Per Click

Pay Per Click or PPC is a popular term in the present time. It is a method where a website or more correctly a website owner earns revenue every time a user clicks on a designated link. In this process the advertisers pay the host every time a visitor click on their ad. This technique is quite beneficial from the advertisers point of view, as they are not bound to pay the host if no viewer clicks on the link. So it is the headache of the host to use different hooks n crooks to redirect the viewers to the desired websites following the ad links. The most common example of pay per click is the Google AdSense where a website publisher is credited a certain sum of money every time a viewer clicks on a Google advertisement link. PPC is also termed as the affiliate model because the advertiser pays revenue to its affiliated partner sites. The most popular PPC providers are Google AdWords, Microsoft adCenter and Yahoo! Search Marketing. But this model faces a number of drawbacks. The most common one is click fraud. Though Google and others PPC providers have implemented different systems to stop this abuse.

Article Marketing and SEO

Article Marketing is a process of writing a good article and displaying the same on a website to increase the traffic of readers towards the article. It is a medium of distributing knowledge related to different subjects in the form of articles on the Internet.

There are many ways of article marketing on the Internet. Many websites provide free services of displaying and distributing articles of their members. Many leading SEO companies take up special assignments for article marketing projects, as this gives them a chance to explore new business opportunities and increase the scope of their present businesses.

When selecting keywords to use in your article submission you want to select keywords that are relevant, searched for, and do not have a lot of competition. There are numerous sites available for free article submission, but there is a caution. If you post the same article on too many article submission sites you run the risk of being penalized by the search engines for duplicate content.

Article submission software in recent years has been emerging as a tool to replace manual submission. Some article submission software is semi-automatic which requires you to click from one article directory to another to post. Others, which are more advanced, require just the click of a button and off it go to different article directories to post.

In my opinion Article Submission is the most "Cost Effective" way to promote your website as has been proven by many Internet marketers.

Importance Of Social BookMarking

Social book marking is a method to store, organize, search, and manage bookmarks on the web with the help of Metadata. Actually this is a process of saving bookmarks in different public websites and tagging them with "Keywords" for sharing with others. Social Book marking web sites like, Digg, Stumble Upon and Furl allow their users to create a set of web site content bookmarks. These book-marking sites are very popular destinations and thus get a lot of traffic.

The different benefits of social book marking are as follows:

Instant Indexing – Various Search Engines can index the submitted site within hours of submission.
Natural links – If the website is really intriguing, then chances are that others will want to include a link to that site from their own site. So this will ensure huge one-way links that will be obtained naturally.
Social Network Exposure – If the site has been mentioned on various social networks by thousands of users in their profiles, then the search engines will give the site more importance while ranking the same.

All the bookmarks within each site are accessible by clicking one of the tags in the 'tag cloud', which is basically a list of tags. Although it is possible to categorize them in order to make it easier to find bookmarks on a particular topic.

It is often a tedious job to submit a site to a social book-marking site. One has to register in that particular site before submitting his/her own site and hence it takes time. But if you use fully automated software that handles the submission process on autopilot then this becomes a very effective method of promotion for very little time investment. The disadvantage of auto submission is that when a large number of links come in at once, Google discount a portion of them. So you'll gain more benefit when they come in steadily over a number of days.
