    What should be your choice if your business is based on sessions?
    i suggest you to chose PPC instead of SEO because in SEO you need much time and in ppc, your site can be on the first page of google in hours.

    You can start with PPC to generate traffic, but at the same time, work on your SEO so you will be able to rank sooner or later.

    There is no black and white answer, use them both

    Use both methods. Just cause PPC works, doesn't mean you should not ignore SEO. Combine forces to maximize potential.

    in my opinion you can stick with both because ppc is costly enough and once you rank on your keyword you can stick in top without spending anything..

    Hi OP,

    You can not get long time result without proper SEO work for your website. You are in the beginning stage. That's why you are suggesting to PPC more than SEO. In short period you will realize the benefits and necessity of SEO work .

    These are completely different things. SEO is good for long term traffic and it takes much time sometime to get. But PPC traffic are instantaneous but they are just for short period.

    If you think that you can do well with PPC campaigns then you should go for it.

    This is not accurate, we do many PPC campaigns to clients for a long time, you have to find the sweet spot of positive ROI and keep optimizing, some business are living out of PPC for years. Things change and so is the PPC world, but it is true for SEO as well, competitors will always come and try to rank better than you.

    At the end of the day the right answer is if you have the means do both, if not it depend on your product, niche, budget, goals...

    I suggest you work on both, driving initial traffic with ppc whilst building up your seo backlinks and preparing your site for organic ranking, etc. That way once you start gaining organic traffic you can drop the expenses of the ppc being used as a crutch, either that oe keep using both of them if you have the budget

    Go for SEO and PPC both...... PPC if you have a decent money in your pocket already ...... SEO is for long term benefit and don't hurt your pocket deeply .

    If you have money go for PPC but the results from PPC will remain untill you pay. Once you stop paying, they will disappeared. The SEO results take time to get on good ranking positions but stay for long.

    I recommend, you can work with both SEO and PPC.If you want to get immediate results you can go with PPC but it will beneficial to a short period.Otherwise, you can work with an SEO it takes more time but it will give long term benefit to your website.

    SEO and PPC both are part of search engine marketing. SEO stands for search Engine Optimization and PPC stands for pay per click. SEO is naturally ranking high in the organic results or PPC is not free as the name implies you have to pay a cost per click.

    I think seo is better because it is free of cost and ppc is a paid version.

    Yep, SEO is better than PPC. SEO is free of cost but PPC is not.
