They are both good, however SEO doesn't have to cost you anything if you do it yourself whereas PPC can be quite expensive.

Both are good PPC and SEO, You can use PPC when you have highly competitive keywords and nice budget. If you have low or medium competitive keywords and have patience then you can go for SEO.

It's very telling that this user was banned. Any time I see someone post something generic like "whats better seo or ppc" I automatically assume it's spam.

I would utilize both, but make sure you become very familiar with PPC or hire someone who is trustworthy to do it. I really like what Adwords has done with their new platform.

Lets say, if you are having ecommerce website, i would follow below plan:
  • For first 6 months, i will invest 70% in PPC and 30% in SEO
  • For next 6 Months, i will descrese budget in PPC and increase in SEO
  • after that, i will analyze ROI and accordingly invest in particular channel
Both are equally important for any business but one have to invest wisely.
best advise so far. combining the two makes a lot of sense. however if you're a one man team with very little experience, this can be very hard to accomplish. SEO is time consuming and you have to do this while running a business

SEO and PPC are two different ways of promoting a website . in seo as we know we list our website in various search engines and we look after the site ranking in the search engine, by maintaining our site by looks , info, content, performance etc. and other things like submitting links of our site to other related sites. but in PPC which is called pay per click we pay for the as many as clicks, our site viewers click the site, and we pay for the ads we made in other sites, this is also a way of promoting the site, other ways are blogging , writing article about our site, joining forums, etc.

that is paying others to click on your website or a link that will redirect to one's website? i have seen so many ways to promote a website, people even uploaded cool pictures on a site for downloading wallpapers or anything, and as soon you click on it bam you find yourself on some web site that has no connection to the picture, other than the link i would say SEO is the best way to promote

I would like to say that SEO and PPC both have their own ways of attracting traffic. PPC is instant whereas SEO takes time to show results but, both are effective. If you have the funds to execute your PPC campaigns, then it is easier to reach out to your target audiences whereas through SEO you have to pull your audiences. But, in both cases your keywords should be appropriate.

Final words: SEO is good to execute as you will get return for long. PPC you may execute if you have the funds with you. But, to start with go with PPC and as you see your SEO efforts giving results you can stop PPC if you want.

PPC( pay per click) and SEO(search engine optimization) both are boost traffic to our website. PPC provided by Google Adwords.
Both are good but it depends on your need and budget. If you have budget and want to result fast than choose PPC.
If you want to long lasting result than choose SEO. It is free but it takes time.
