The more popular the site is the more money the client should pay to advertise his product. There are two modes in which the sites carry out this advertising process. They are PPC (Pay per Click) and Search Engine Management (SEM). Pay per Click (PPC) management involves many processes by which the client has to pay a certain amount of money for each click that his advertisement registers. If the advertisement is clicked umpteen numbers of times it gives profit not only to the site but also to the client as his product becomes famous overnight and his sales increases automatically.

E-bay uses this technique and sells the product the client wants them to sell. The other way of advertising is through Search engines called Search Engine Advertising. This search engine advertising takes place through several ways. One is unpaid advertising in the form of images where if the user wants an information he types the key words and the site presents related content in the form of images or site URLs. Then when the user clicks the image or URL the page automatically navigates to the client site wherein the client would have advertised his product and for which no money can be collected. But there are paid advertising in which the advertisement is put in the search engines themselves thus increasing their visibility and popularity. There are tools like Search Engine Optimization (SEO) which serve to remember the key word and supply advertisement related to the content viewed by the user. This is an advanced tool and there are more advantages in an all round manner as the user, advertiser and the site owner simultaneously get credits and it is a win-win situation all round.
