I know when I pay for adwords I get first rankings in search result. When I stop paying will I still have better rankings for the keyword?

Hi Shawn,

 

Welcome to the Community!

 

Firstly, Ad position isn't guaranteed in AdWords, as an auction is conducted for every search. Secondly, AdWords performance doesn't affect organic listings in any way. Google keeps these two algorithms separate and hence do not affect each other. Here's a nice article by one of our Top Contributors.

 

Cheers,

Sumanth
