Organic search results are the rankings of web pages returned by a search engine when you search for a specific word or phrase - a "keyword" or "keyword phrase".
  • Pay Per Click Advertising (PPC) - Ads you place for your web site with a search engine, such as Google or Yahoo. You bid the amount you are willing to pay per click. The more you bid, the higher your ad will appear in the search engine results
