tyBit Pay-Per-Position (PPP) Advertising Model Takes Aim at PPC

July 9, 2009 by · Comments Off on tyBit Pay-Per-Position (PPP) Advertising Model Takes Aim at PPC 

TybitWeb Hosting Tools – Will PPC become an obsolete model? CEO Clarence Briggs of search engine tyBit.com seems to think so. “We’re cranking out 60 to 70 million searches a month through thousands of distributed partners and affiliates, and we are giving away PPC advertising,” said Briggs. “Our model is simple and affordable. We give away PPC ads, but our preferred advertisers bid in a pay-per-position or PPP auction. They bid on positions 1 through 10 and pay a flat, daily rate starting at only $1 a day for a key term, regardless of the number of impressions or clicks,” said Briggs. “In the first week, we have had over 400 advertisers sign up for PPP based on our Global Keyword Registration (GKR) system,” said Briggs.

With the news last month that PPC clickers aren’t the valuable customers that advertisers might have expected, will we see a major change in the revenue models of search engines? According to a recent Kiss-SEO report about PPC click-through rates, 6% of ad clickers are responsible for 50% of display ad clicks. These clickers, tagged as “Natural Born Clickers” further erode the validity of pay-per-click models because of their demographics.

These clickers tend to be younger, in the 25-44 age bracket, and have lower incomes, less than $40,000. What that means, is that many companies that measure the success of their ad campaigns by the number of click-throughs, are possibly getting site visitors not able to purchase the products or services advertised. The study went on to imply that the success of an ad campaign, therefore shouldn’t be measured by clicks, but rather than by exposure. If that inference sticks, we might see search engines revert to the old CPM model or some new paradigm?
