Google AdWords

Google AdWords is what makes Google billions of dollars every year. Launched in 2002, it was not the first pay-per-click (PPC) network – that was Overture – but it was the best, because it introduced a much more sophisticated bidding management strategy that any business, large or small, could take advantage of.

Google AdWords was revolutionary, and remains so today because the platform introduced the concept of click-through rate and quality score as deciding factors in the auction. This enabled businesses to compete for relevancy in their search ad campaigns rather than simply top ad positions and meant that companies with the biggest ad budgets were not guaranteed to perform better.

Google AdWords has evolved beyond simply desktop search to offer a huge content network, called the Google Display Network, and also powers YouTube Ads and the largest mobile PPC ad network in the world. Google AdWords offers powerful targeting options to advertisers with image ads, ad extensions, enhanced campaigns and dynamic remarketing, to name just a few. Google also offer a number of automation solutions and keyword bidding tools such as AdWords Editor and AdWords scripts to reduce the time spent managing campaigns.

Whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced PPC campaign manager, PPC Hero is here to help you generate better results from your campaign budget.

The Opportunities Tab – The Good And Bad
