    PPC can generate results a lot faster if you know what you are doing, but if you not a pro at PPC IT WILL DRAIN YOUR WALLET. SEO can is very effective and won't cost you anything if you do it yourself.

    no if you are looking for immediate result then ppc is best option and if you are looking for long term stable result the seo is better.

    There are just two many factors involved to be able to come up with a solid answer to this question I think. It depends on the niche, competition, type of website you're promoting, your budget, your monetization strategy etc etc....

    I don't think PPC is cost effective for a pure content site, but if you are selling then it's probably better than SEO.

    PPC will bring you quick results especially with competitive phrases, however not as many people will click ppc listings over organic listings. In my opinion it is much more beneficial in the long run to optimise your site, either yourself if you have the knowledge or professionally.

    But SEO is also necessary for success in PPC [Quality score]. If you are selling something and promotion will bring you profit then PPC is the way to go. But if you are trying to get visitors to your site with content then Organic SEO is the way to go unless you don't mind spending some cash with no returns.

    SEO is natural. You dont have to do much to acheive this, and it does not always provide geo targeting or any type of effective targetting that will give a ROI.

    PPC is very effective for geo targeting methods and can be set up to effectively provide a ROI.

    SEO is better in my opinion because it's more credible (i think) in the eyes of viewers. If I search for "start my own business", I'm going to think the organic results are much more credible then the PPC ads claiming "Make a zillion today".

    However, I might be biased since I know how it takes effort to get top rankings on organic versus buying your way to the top of PPC

    just my thought

    If you're hitting for a big sale, then PPC is the way. The richer you are, the more prone you go for PPC.

    For me, SEO and PPC is both important. SEO is a technique if you want organic and long term result . Of course your website must be visible in the search engine before it was click by the visitor. But how can we do it , it is by SEO and link building technique done by the SEO. But if you want to generate revenue easily PPC would be the best . PPC does not guarantee for a long term goal unless we know the seasonal or the topic in the industry. Whether you want a PPC or SEO campaign or both it is important to select appropriate keywords

    It depends. Some prefer SEO, some prefer PPC and, of course, some love both.

    seo Is 10 times better, for me SEO gives me 1- out of 50 conversion rate, but my conversion rate for PPC is 1 out of 500. So for me with PPC I lose money but with SEO I make money. I believe there is too much fraud with PPC,
