In such a situation small businesses end up facing massive contests for the simple reason that the big shots have occupied the top listings in searches. So should their businesses suffer by never coming up on the first page of a search? The answer is NO. Small businesses have a tool named the PPC or the Pay Per Click method, which becomes their stick of support on the uphill trek.
What is PPC?
By definition, PPC or pay per click involves advertising on the search result page. Brands need to pay a certain fee to the search engine for every click they get from the search engine ad.

So every time you ditch other search results, but click this ‘ad’ link, Facebook is entitled to pay Google for placing its ad on the top of the search results page.
As simple as that, this kind of advertisement is the Pay Per Click Ad. It may not be limited to search results or just search engines. Search engines, social media sites, and respective locations on these pages can be utilized and customized to play your brand’s ad.
It is crucial to realize that even though PPC can be a best friend for a brand’s business, a good SEO skeleton is a must anyhow.
