What are Pay-Per-Click & Pay-For-Inclusion programs?
Pay-per-click (PPC) involves paying for your website to have a prominent position on the relevant search results page of a specific search engine. For each visitor that clicks on your link you are charged at a specified rate. The benefit of a PPC program is you only pay for results.
Pay-for-inclusions (PFI) simply involves paying to get your website listed on a specific search engine. It does not guarantee prominent rankings. You will still need SEO to achieve high rankings. PFI gives you an opportunity to gain a top spot, but without an SEO strategy, it’s effectiveness is limited.
