If you want your business to grow beyond where it is now, you need to make a very important decision, and that is, to advertise on Google. When you take this step, it will help you to reach new and more customers, thereby making your business grow. Google AdWords which is currently known as Google Ads, is the most used and largest online platform for making adverts. Advertising on Google helps your business to reach millions of potential audience/customers. This article contains the beginner’s guide to placing adverts on Google. Let us hit the ball rolling.
How does Advertising on Google Work?
Google Ads work just like an auction, but not like the regular kind of auction. Why we said this is because your bid is not all that matters – the relevance and quality of your ad campaigns will be taken into account by the auction, meaning that there is a level playing field for everyone, and not just for advertisers that have the fullest pockets.
This auction is mainly centered on a ‘keywords’ concept. All advertisers usually identify the relevant keywords that relate to their various businesses and the ones that searchers will likely make use of while searching for something, and then they will place a bid on each of them. They will state the amount that would like to pay whenever a user clicks on their Google ad. If you have heard about “pay-per-click advertising”, that is where it came from.
Each time a Google user inputs a keyword to search for something on Google, an ad auction always takes place. This means that there is always a great opportunity for potential customers to see your ads when they search for the keywords that you are bidding on. Since those prospective customers are actively searching for what you are selling, you will always show up at the right time. This is why advertising on Google is extremely powerful and advantageous and is an effective way of growing your business.

There are campaigns within every single account. For some advertisers, they run just one campaign at a time, while some other advertisers simultaneously run several campaigns. There are many ad groups in each campaign, and each of them has unique ad text, landing pages, and keywords.
