What Are Google Ads?

Google Ads, formerly known as Google AdWords, serves as a powerful advertising ecosystem where businesses can commandeer attention within Google's search result pages. To provide some context, Google processes approximately 63,000 searches per second, or 5.6 billion queries each day. Each of these searches triggers a Search Engine Results Page (SERP) that features both organic results and paid advertisements. By leveraging Google Ads, your business can appear at the pinnacle of these SERPs for targeted keywords, thereby amplifying visibility, boosting lead generation, and driving both online and in-store conversions.

Take, for example, a query like "personal education loan." The top trio of results you'll see typically comprises paid advertisements, easily identifiable with an "Ad" label next to their website information.

Varieties of Google Ad Campaigns

Google extends a smorgasbord of campaign types to fit varied business objectives:

  • Search Campaign: Targets SERPs
  • Display Campaign: Showcases visual ads across Google Display Network
  • Shopping Campaign: Highlights products directly within Google Shopping
  • Video Campaign: Utilizes video content for advertising
  • App Campaign: Promotes mobile apps

Investing in Google Ads is recommended if you aim to:

  • Integrate an online marketing vision into a cohesive digital strategy
  • Align Google Search strategies with broader organizational marketing goals
  • Generate targeted leads, enhance sales, or boost web traffic
  • Reach both new and established customer bases using Google's tailored audience features
  • Maintain a marketing budget that aligns with your search marketing objectives

How Does Google Ads Function?

Google Ads operates on a Pay-Per-Click (PPC) model, meaning you pay each time someone clicks on your ad. Marketers target specific or multiple keywords for which they wish their ads to appear, essentially entering an auction against other advertisers who are also vying for those same keywords. The highest bid generally secures the prime position above all competing ads.

Here are the bidding options available:

  • Cost-Per-Click (CPC): Fee incurred per individual click on your ad.
  • Cost-Per-Mille (CPM): Cost per 1,000 ad impressions.
  • Cost-Per-Engagement (CPE): Fee for specific user actions like signing up for a newsletter or watching a video.

Creating a compelling ad description is vital, as you’re competing against potentially hundreds of other products similar to yours. The ad copy and corresponding landing page significantly influence your ad's quality and, ultimately, your ROI. If writing isn't your strong suit, stay tuned—we have the perfect solution for you at the end of this article.

Differentiating Your Ads

While ranking at the top of the SERP gets you more eyeballs, conversion isn't guaranteed. Customers like to window-shop digitally, typically visiting 2 to 3 sites before making a decision. Your success lies in the power of your words—from captivating headlines to convincing ad and web copy.
