Differences between SEO and PPC

  1. Ranking in search engine results: The main difference between SEO and PPC is that, whereas the main objective of SEO is to enhance your website’s rank in the popular search engine results, but PPC does not benefit a company’s ranking on search engines. PPC is a specific tactic of advertising that can drive more traffic to a website. When PPC is good for a website, visitors as well as their acquaintances return to a website through organic means.
  2. Short term and long term benefits: PPC mainly focuses on short term benefits. If you invest on PPC, you will be able to witness more visitors to your website and with proper management of campaigns you can make more deals. But PPC would not be able to retain those audiences.

SEO is a long-term approach and it can help in gaining customer’s trust which can retain more number of customers who rely on your products and services. To be more specific, SEO is regarding optimizing a website with trustworthy informative blogs, so that the visitors of your website can have a better user experience.
