Paid search advertising is one of the most popular forms of pay-per-click (PPC) advertising. Paid ads are typically shown above and below organic search results. How often your ads appear and how much you depends on factors such as your max big, quality score, competition, etc. Search engine marketing (SEM) or Search Marketing (as it's sometimes called) is SEO + PPC; it's the process of increasing website traffic/conversions by purchasing ads on major search platforms like Google, Bing, and Yahoo.
