Pay per click (PPC) (also called cost per click) is an internet advertising model used to direct traffic to websites, in which advertisers pay the publisher (typically a website owner) when the ad is clicked. It is defined simply as “the amount spent to get an advertisement clicked”. We invest highly in Google AdWords to drive traffic to our directories where information on the franchises we are marketing is located.
