The definition of CPC
CPC stands for Cost Per Click. It’s the price an advertiser has to pay for a click on an advertisement shown by an online advertising network (e.g. Google AdWords).
When managing a PPC campaign, a search engine professional usually has the possibility to set a maximum CPC. This will be the maximum price that will be charged for a click on his advertisement, and usually determines the final ad position of the advertisement, together with the combined quality score for the advertisement and keyword combination.
