Pay per click search engine management will begin with determining how much each visitor to your web site will be worth. Pay Per Click visits can range anywhere from a few cents into the hundreds of dollars. Obviously, if it cost $50 to make a $40 sale the visitor or click is not worthwhile. The formula to calculate the worth of a pay per click campaign is relatively simple. Historical data will have to be used. Used will be the profit generated from the website over a given period of time. If the web site yielded $2000 in profit from the product or service sales in the given period, and the visitor ratio was 4000 for the given period then each visitor was worth $1. This is calculated by profit divided by visitors. This is your breakeven point. The advertiser will consider the desired profit margin making the optimal price per click likely less than $1 per click. Depending on the popularity of the keyword phrases will depend on the cost per click. Often time’s popular phrases run more than this, so for the advertiser it will make sense to bid on less popular keyword phrases to pay an acceptable amount per click increasing their profit margin.

Optimizing a site for particular keywords is not a difficult process. Keywords lacking performance do not cost extra as there is only the time for setting up the account, but are a concern of the advertiser Keyword phrases can be researched using keyword tools which allow advertisers to see how popular the keyword phrases are and how often they are selected in the search engines.

The advertiser is paying per click and does not want to pay for every looky lou, but for the interested prospect. Marketing copy techniques need to be employed to be certain that the advertisement description of the website is enticing enough to attract the most valuable prospect.
