Pay Per Click advertising can generate traffic almost immediately, therefore using PPC engines is a solid short-term strategy for businesses entering the e-commerce arena, or wanting to create traffic to a new site or product, or needing to buoy their performance. However, PPC engines are becoming increasingly competitive and expensive, so it probably does not make sense for it to be your only traffic generation strategy.
