1. ppc prices are set by what people are willing to pay; and
2. there is an endless stream of overly optimistic starter uppers willing to outbid competition to gain traffic;
then are the ppc facilitators simply churning through the overly optimistic as they, one after another, burn through their advertising budgets and leave the market - only to be replaced by the next overly optimistic buyer?
If so, would the market of soon to go broke ppc advertisers be the most lucrative one for ppc facilitators?
If so, would the ppc facilitators have little financial interest in serving advertisers willing to pay less where less is a cost per click on which the advertiser can profit and stay in business.
Is this what is happening?
Are any of you who sell products or services able to purchase ppc advertising at a price that allows profit from the traffic? Or are you finding that you are always being outbid by an endless stream of advertisers who advertise for awhile, possibly until they run out of money, then close their doors?
