Quite often companies need to get visitors to their web site quickly. Waiting for search engines to index a site may take longer than you're willing to wait; and paying for inclusion in a directory may not garner the results you want. What can you do? The answer - try a pay per click search engine.
Pay per click means visitors click through to your site from a link, which can be tracked, and you are billed for each click. With this type of search engine, you pay only for actual traffic. With these types of search engines growing in popularity, how do you know which one to choose? We can not answer that, but we've compiled a list of some pay per click search engines that you can review. For convenience, the search engines are listed in alphabetical order and all links will open in the same new browser window.
