    If depends upon what you want to achieve. If you want to drive traffic to your website within short period of time and increase sales then PPC is good for you. But, if you want to dominate your niche and willing to build your online presence in the market that can last forever then you should go by SEO. Both SEO and PPC have their Pros and Cons and it depends upon you what you want to achieve and what you choose.

    It's unreasonable to just focus on one. You need to do both if you're looking for really good results.

    Hi,

    Personally speaking, it depends on 2 factors :

    Your budget
    Time frame you have ( Can you wait or not ? )

    SEO takes time for sure on Google. Talking about PPC, in relation with SEO, you can spend on Bing PPC. In 2013,Bing ended with 18 pc market share and good to watch for its offering in 2014. So,I would advise you to ask yourself if you could afford the time and money.. Because in any case - Time is money.

    If you have the budget then both a very good and they can work hand in hand.
    If a keyword is doing well then you can put this into your SEO efforts and start to rank organicly for the keywords.
    SEO does take time but can result in a reduced ppc spend with increased conversions

    Both are better because if you don't do proper SEO on ecommerce websites, then you might miss some of the organic traffic from search engine. Similarly, if you not focussed on PPC, higher may be your traffic you can not earn more from per click. So, at last both are good for the website.

    PPC is better for faster traffic, can be nearly instantaneous...but it costs money. so with small margins it doesnt work well

    SEO on other hand takes alot more time but is technically free.

    both have its own value, its much depend on you only,seo and ppc both are different option if you go for seo. it is more genric and more reliable than ppc if you do in properly without spamming and not a one time process, the most important benefit of seo is that, you can take its advantage even then you suspend seo for couple of months but with ppc not like that

    seo= more reliable, affordable, long term benefit, ranking will carry on
    ppc= instant benefit, no guarantee of roi, more costly

    thanks

    Both are good I think
    In SEO you can result slow and after some time but this is give you long time result and give your site a new value from back-links and search traffic.
    and PPC you can targeted traffic immediately but only if you invest money if you stop invest you stop traffic
    SEO is best as my thinking

    SEO means being a Slave Horse while PPC means instant traffic and if conversions come make it sustainable while PPC is also termed as Casino for marketing and must be tried within risk-appetite of the individual. And Adsense popularity decreasing many intenrent surfers are moving to social media and the PPC marketers are also moving to SMO and taking the bidding war there.

    Seo mean now a organic way to increase your ranking on google's organic search results. A good ranking will give a better traffic for a long time. So that free of cost. But to get a good rank is not easy and its time taking. If you are in hurry to get more conversions to your products and services a PPC is recommend but it will keep up untill your budget don't end. But if your ROI is good with PPC then stay with PPC. Keep building a organic content on your website for better ranking.

    PPC is quick,instant to get notice in virtual world but it requires money to invest on it. on the other side SEO is free of cost need to dedicate on website it is slow but once it got in place it helps better than any other source.
    For me SEO helps in E-commerce site promotion...
