Cost Per Click (CPC)
CPC means an advertiser pays money based on Ad clicked. If CPC of a keyword is 5$ and someone clicks on that Ad, advertiser will be charged 5$. Every click on that Ad by visitors will bill Advertiser 5$. Viewing this kind of Ad for longer does not charge advertiser any money unless it is clicked.
Advertise can set their budget and run the Ad campaign, when the budget is hit by the clicks, the Ad will be stopped and removed.
If advertiser thinks 0.25$ is good amount to pay for clicking their ad and sets max CPC to 0.25$. If 1000 people see the ad, and 25 of them clicks to learn about it, advertiser will only pay for that 25 clicks which is (25*0.25 = 6.25$)
Cost Per Views (CPV)
CPV means an advertiser pays money based on Ad viewed. A view is only counted when someone watches ad for 30 seconds half of the Ad whichever appears first. Advertiser will pay amount based on keywords competition to show their Ad. when the Ad is placed and someone views the Ad for 30 second they will be charged the amount they have set for the views. Clicks on the Ad does not charge advertiser additional or more money on this plan.
If an advertiser sets CPV bid to 25 cents for their Ad when it is viewed, every views more than 30 seconds or half views for the shorter Ad will bill advertiser 25 cents. So, 1000 views for the ad will charge 250$ for the advertiser.
