    I'm thinking of advertising on Facebook. My site doesn't sell any products
    I just want some good targeted traffic, so my site will go higher on Google, etc.

    my question is... What are the prices like on Facebook? Like... how does it
    work? Is it PPC like Google? Or is it a PPI method? Where money is charged
    from me, for every impression that I get?

    + Can I make it super targeted? as in "only in this city, and only for people
    between the ages of 18 - 22"

    EDIT: & is there such thing as "Keyword Research", if so, then how does it work?
    How does Facebook now which ads appeal to whom?

    yes you can drill facebook down to a Geo target area. The system works kind of like google adwords.

    I do place ads on facebook, myspace and it really depends on what your site is and how your banner looks. I have put up sites that I think people would click on to go read not selling anything but no. Then I have put up other sites that I thought that would not get any traffic at all.

    You can find credits to set up an account for like 50 bucks. get your hands on one of them and play around with free money.

    It will take a lot more than just having an add on facebook to get your site moved up unless your keyword is not in I high demand area.

    Okay, okay....

    But here is the thing.... From what I remember, you only see like 3 ads on the right side, correct? So lets say I am bidding for "Pencils in New York", you are bidding for "pencils in new york" and 8 other people.... who will be the one who will be in the top 3? the ones who pay the most $$ per click? what about the other... 5... what happenes to them?

    Facebook allows advertisers to reach the exact audience they want with targeted ads. The following are ways advertisers can target advertisements in Facebook:
    • Age
    • Gender
    • Location (country, state/province and city levels)
    • Interests
    • Relationship Status
    • Activities
    • Networks (schools, companies)
    • Schools
    • And more...

    I Will suggest you to Make a Page for your Campaign Instead of wasting money on Facebook CPM

    If you don't know how to buy ads through Facebook you can lose a great deal of money - This depends on your ad-copy in general but also who your target audience is. If you've figured out how to buy ads it can be a very lucrative way of monetizing. However, there's a learning curve. Don't know how quick you'll learn and don't know how big of a budget you have.
