Default Learn Which Is Better SEO Or PPC!??

Hey Guys,

So just a quick little rant here. I see a lot of people ask which is better SEO or PPC!?

The answer is.....none!

Their both equally as powerful but understanding which tools does what is important. So here's a simplified non tech description of SEO and PPC.

PPC = Short term Fast results. Running Google adwords is going to cost ya some money but if done correctly you can pull in some fast results in couple of days.

SEO = Long Term Game, it's a marathon that will pull incredible results! But it's a game of chess and making sure your making the right moves to show up on the front page of google!


Hope this helps!

I must say you have given the best example to understand SEO and PPC. But it is wrong to say that none of the techniques help to increase the ranking and traffic of the website.

Whether its SEO or PPC, one thing is for sure you can't expect results without doing it. It's an ongoing process, one has to keep it doing.

Both are might look similar but the difference lies in details. I prefer to deal with SEO because you have a distant goal in mind and your work your way slowly up. PPC does start-up faster, but it is hard to find a suitable niche. Either way its up to the personal preference and the project's features.

You are right, PPC is very useful to drive instant traffic and leads, whereas the result from SEO is slow but the benefits over a long duration.

You should pay attention to SEO to gain a good result with PPC, the two go hand in hand. When you use, for example, Google Adwords for your PPC campaigns you are scored out of 10 for the quality of your keywords related to your ad, if you have not paid attention to this throughout the website building process then your PPC campaigns could cost you more than a competitor who has paid attention.

SEO is organic traffic which is free (apart from the time spent to achieve this!) while PPC is not free and you pay per click.

SEO and PPC are both a part of search engine marketing, which is part of your overall marketing campaign.

PPC ads appear above the organic listings in Google.

Yes good quality SEO that gets results is time consuming and hard becoming even harder. you are better off starting with PPC and figure-ing out SEO as you have time.

SEO and PPC has different specialize field so comparing them is a waste of time but using them simultaneously is more effective rather than using only one of these method.

Hi,

SEO - Take long time to give the result

PPC - Give you instant result


Both of them have it's own algorithms.
