The Invent of PPC Model

GoTo is the first search engine to introduce PPC (Pay Per Click)model in 1998. GoTo began generating revenue from the new patented technology. Advertisers can select their top keywords and then can bid for those keywords in a an auction style.

Overture took over GoTo and the PPC product was renamed as Overture PPC(Pay Per Click). The type of bidding Overture was allowing prompted the advertisers to end up in a bidding war. Advertisers can know how much their competitors are bidding for a particular keyword or keyword phrase while using the overture search suggestion tool. Knowing the bids of the competitors and to overtake them in the position advertisers bid more or equal to their competitors bid. Equal bidding was enough to take the customers ad position above the competitors ad. Now the big giant second only to google, purchased overture and renamed the PPC product as "Yahoo Search marketing."

With the acquisition of Yahoo the advertisers are no more able to know about the bidding of the competitors. Yahoo copied this feature from google PPC product called "Adwords." Google adwords was lauched on early 2002.

Types of Bidding Options in Google Adwords

I have listed below the different types of bidding options in google adwords.

1)Manual bidding -Max CPC bids
2)Conversion Optimizer New! --Max CPA bids
3)Budget Optimizer -No bids needed
4)Preferred cost bidding - Average CPC bids

1)Manual bidding -Max CPC bids

Using this option you would be able to set the highest price for each click. Google would not be charging you more than the set bid. If you like to have the maximum control over the bidding then use this option.

I am reminding you that position of the adcopies are decided by considering the Max cpc and the quality score.

2)Conversion Optimizer New! --Max CPA bids

You can set the highest price you want to pay for each conversion. For setting this up and running you should have had atleast 200 conversions in the last 30 days.

Do not forget to place the conversion tracking code in the "Thank you" pages.

Please note: Position preferences will be turned off.

3)Budget Optimizer -No bids needed

Budget optimizer requires no bids but a 30 day budget has to be set. Google will help you to get maximum clicks to your website.

Please note: Position preferences will be turned off.
No Adscheduling

4)Preferred cost bidding - Average CPC bids

In this option you can specify the average cpc willing to pay for each click.
