I've heard about PPC's, Ad networking & PTC's
All the above are the ways to earn money through advertisement,directly or indirectly, I always wonder,what is the difference among PPC(Pay per click) , PTC(paid to click) & ad networking ?
Can anyone explain it...
& which gives us more (better) chances to earn with less effort ?
I want to know more about ad networking also, is it similar to adsense ?
I have never used any of those.......I use other methods...
But I have read many posts that talk about the difficulty in using those programs to drive traffic......
just suggesting that you continue to do your research before spend the bucks...
Yes, I know that they are a bit difficult methods to gain traffic.. But if we get the correct website then we can get traffic easily..
I'm trying to find the answer for the questions which I asked on google but till now did not got any success
Till now I'm not able to differentiate between PTC & PPC
So anyone here, knows the difference between those ?
PPC pay per click is paying for ads on a click basis on search engines like Google Yahoo and Bing. The traffic is targeted because the users are searching without any compensaton.
PTC are biz opp sites where users can earn mone by clicking on advertiser's ads. Buying an ad in these networks are very cheap but because users ae compensated for clicking on your ad, the traffic is often untargeted and only good for certain offers (like biz opp and Internet marketing).
EDIT BY MOD: We thank you for your contributions but they all are resembling copy and paste ... please add some value to your post by doing more than giving a text book answer that sometimes isn't even text book.

The resemblance is pure coincidence. I mean they can't help it if other people have copied their posts and posted them at a prior date
so, the copiers have time machines.... what is this world coming to?
Ok, let me try to explain a little better.
ptc is where people get paid for clicking on ads. The ads are usually cheap, but people don't usually buy. They are just clicking through as many ads as they can, since they get paid for viewing the ads not actually buying something.
it is cheaper to get than ppc, but not really worth the time.
PPC is where you put ads up and only pay when the ad is clicked. it usually runs on an auction type system based on keywords. if you bid $.30/click and someone else bids $.40/ click, their ad will show up before yours does. There are other factors involved, and it gets complicated because there are a lot of factors which go into determining how much you will pay per click.
Now this solves my question
Now another doubt arises, what are the factors that will change the value of the advertisement in PPC ?
One factor, I know is the value of the keyword.. but I don't know how is the value of the keyword calculated, by the way how is it calculated ?
if you have a page with only affiliate links, or a page with at least one link to a valuable blog or website, the page with the links to free content will get better placement.
as far as keywords, there are a lot of factors that go into the value of a keyword. # of competing ads, average bidding price, and search volumes are just a few.
just like seo, the only people who know all the factors involved are so bound up in non-disclosure agreements that they aren't talking.
Now, I am no expert on PPC. however, I can say be careful. you can spend a lot of money with little to no income before you work out a good campaign. Most of the people I know who are successful with it say to expect to loose about $500-$1000 before you start seeing a campaign work.
It takes constant testing and tweaking to get it right, even with experience under your belt. Some see success faster, but i have not seen anyone hit it perfect with their leap into a new campaign.
PPC stands for Pay Per Click... it is basically pay on ads of clicks you can say it is based on click search engine...
on other hand PTC stands for paid to click.This is completely different from PPC program. The advertiser will pay the viewer certain amount for clicking and viewing the advertisement
