Should I do PPC on the Search or Content networks?

My content clicks are on average are 75% higher on a daily basis than my search clicks, should i go content network only?
the CTR of the content network is right around 1.50%---the search network is around 0.48 (daily)
both have daily impressions of around 1000-1500.

Personally I would turn off the content network until you get good results on search. Once you have done that then you can scale to the content network as well.

PPC on content networks can require a bit more work in managing as you really need to make sure theyre targeted to potential buyers, so theres a bit more overhead there in managing your campaigns.

Regardless of what network you advertise on check the conversion rate on those clicks - are you getting what you want out of it? Use the goal conversion feature in Google Analytics to make sure those clicks are turning into sales, or leads etc.
