Don't worry -- with smart execution, spending some marketing dollars on advertising is nothing to feel icky about. In fact, PPC in particular can be a great complement to your organic search strategy, and it can even amplify your organic results.
But if you're interested in how all that dough breaks down, the folks over at Wordstream did some thoughtful analysis and put together a very interesting infographic that highlights where all that money comes from, with an industry-by-industry breakdown.
