What is Google Ads?
Google Ads (formerly known as Google AdWords) is an online advertising platform that allows businesses to have their footprint on Google’s search results. It helps businesses to reach more relevant audiences across the globe. Eventually helps to increase awareness, leads and drive sales by reaching to the potential consumers everywhere. The Google ads look almost identical to the normal search results, with the only difference being the small word “Ad” in green before website URL.
Now Let’s discuss, How Advertising works on Google?
Google Ads helps you to attract engaged traffic towards your business websites, blogs, articles, videos, apps and more. When someone searches for a specific keyword on Google, Google looks into the advertiser’s pool and determines whether there will be an auction. If one or more advertisers are bidding on the same keywords that Google deems relevant to the search query, an auction is triggered.

In order to start the auction, advertisers need to create a Google Ads Manager account. A manager account is a Google Ads account that lets you easily view and manage multiple Google Ads accounts including other manager accounts from a single location.
First of all, you need to sign in using the email you’d like to use to manage your new manager account. Give your manager account a name. This is the name that your clients will see in their managed account.
Once you’ll successfully be signed in, click at the right-hand side top corner you’ll find your account name. After that, click the “+” sign on the Google Ads Manager homepage to launch the new campaign creation process.
After completing the campaign creation process, Google will take around 24 hours to review your ads. If your ads don’t violate any of Google’s advertising policies, it will be approved and go live.

Google Ads works on a pay-per-click advertising process, meaning you’ll need to pay only if someone clicks on your Ads. The Cost-per-click (CPC) is determined by several factors, such as maximum bid, your Quality Score, and the ad rank of other advertisers bidding for the same keyword. While the average Cost-per-click (CPC) across all industries is $2.59 and it may vary from $1 to over $10 per click.
