"There are several good reasons why advertisers choose to pay for visitors to their web site as opposed to the involved and often grueling method of search engine optimization.
Improper SEO will not only waste time and resources, there is never a guarantee that the keywords your site is optimized for will result in actual sales or conversions.
In addition, with the ever-changing algorithms of search engines, you could spend big money on SEO that may put you at the very top of the search engines today, and then with one major algorithm change, you could drop completely off the charts tomorrow. (Remember Florida?)*
PPC advertising can help ensure for the most part, you get what you pay for and pay as little as possible to do it."
- Robert Walter
*Florida was an infamous update to the Google algorithm that threw many sites off of the highly valued first page and caused a hue and cry among Search Engine Optimizers the world over.
