As you have no doubt noticed, Google search results (all 2.3 million of them every second of every day!) come with a lot of ads. These paid advertisements are an extremely effective way of driving qualified and relevant traffic to a website, and that’s precisely why business large and small employ them to target people searching for their exact product or service. Google offers this service on google.com with the use of Google Ads (formally known as Google AdWords).
On the Google search engine results page (SERP) there are two sections of paid Google ads: one above the ‘natural’ or organic links and one at the bottom of the results page. Google places a small green ‘Ad’ label around them to denote their paid status. Google also offers remarketing and banner ads, known collectively as ‘Display Ads’, via the Google Display Network (a collection of partnered third-party websites).
Google has been offering a bewildering array of retail platforms and products for some years now. If you are a retailer, you may have heard or known about Google AdWords, Adsense, Shopping, Merchant Centre and Google Analytics. But the core of all these products has always been Google AdWords, which Goole re-branded to ‘Google Ads’ in July 2018.
This was a logical rebranding by Google, as Google Ads encompasses, at least in theory, the entire series of platforms and products designed to support the previously named Google AdWord. Google Ads has evolved and is continuing to do so as different aspects of digital marketing developed. As these products and platforms come online, they will all be designed as add-ons and features to support the Google Ads network.
A Google Ads campaign is one of the best ways to bring in new traffic, leads and sales for any given business. The best way to know whether you need to try such advertising for your business is to answer the following four questions:
1] – Assess your available time, marketing budget and product offerings
Evaluate your current product(s) and key drivers of your sales to determine if ads will bring in enough ROI to make the investment worthwhile.
2] – Research your keyword traffic potential
If the keyword(s) for your product/service only generates a few hundred searches per month, your offering is likely too niche for Google Ads to make any significant boost.
3] – Investigate your competitors
Dig around online to discover what your competitors are spending on and what keywords are working for them.
4] – A/B test the right network for you
There are countless methods and mediums – YouTube video, Gmail campaign, banner ad, mobile retargeting, etc. – to test and develop via Google Ads.
