13 Pay-Per-Click Blogs We Googled So You Don’t Have To

13 Pay-Per-Click Blogs We Googled So You Don't Have To

According to Wikipedia,

To Google [goo·gle – transitive verb, often capitalized] means using the Google search engine to obtain information on something or somebody on the World Wide Web.

Sounds easy right?

Not so much. We actually found it really hard to find *good* PPC blogs. And that’s what makes this collection even more special.

To make it super useful, we added extra data to each blog’s description including authors, social reach, how often on average they produce new content and what you can expect.

Whether you manage a multi-million dollar marketing budget or are looking to invest $0.30 on your first click, you’ll want some guidance from the folks who’ve been there before.

So let’s get to it.
