PPC is all advertising activities on the Internet, in which the advertiser pays for the user's interaction with the advertisement, mainly for clicking and redirecting to his website. PPC campaigns are not just AdWords, so you can not accept such a generalization. AdWords is an advertising system that offers to a bill in the pay per click model. At the same time, it is Google's advertising that is the most popular form of this type of campaign in countries where Larry Page's search engine achieves the vast majority of market shares.
