PPC is best way to generate more lead/business for the online resource. In this practice website is visible in top results of search engines through searching keywords.

For PayPerClick campaigns, don't just rely on using top keywords for your PPC campaign - this is the reason why others are failing.

Bidding on top keywords will yield you less as competition for these are stiff already. The technique here is opting for other long tail keywords that is more likely to yield specific results because specific searches on long tail keywords or phrases are the ones that usually convert.

Those who employ such search are more likely to buy IMO.
