How Google AdWords works

Google AdWords works basically with the help of Keywords, Placements, Ad Rank, Bids and Quality Score. Any advertiser can begin their business campaign by minimum understanding of these mentioned terms. So keeping this in mind i mentioned all these terms briefly in this article. Let’s understand these important terms one by one.

a) Importance of keywords in Google AdWords

Keywords are the main pillars of any online campaign. Many Advertisers use keywords related to their business for promotion. But minimum understanding of keywords can ruin any campaign. So we need to understand the importance and use of keywords in online campaigns.

Generally we refers “keywords” as word or phrase which can help ads to display on search network. To improve the performance of ads, we must choose specific keywords while running any campaign instead of general keywords. For example: If we run Car selling campaign then we must choose specific keyword related to this campaign such as: ‘Sell your car’, ‘contact us to sell your car’ instead of ‘car’.

b) Placements of ads

Google owns many websites to show advertiser ads on its display network. By creating ads with the help of specified keywords advertisers can control their ads placements on Google display network. Google shows advertisers ads on its display network according to the matching keywords to websites in display network.

c) Determine ads position with Ad Rank, Bids & Quality Score

In case of using same keywords by many advertisers Google AdWords shows advertisers ads according to the Ad Rank. We can simply define Ad Rank by specifying advertiser bids for ads, Quality score and ad extensions. However, Ad Rank can be managed by advertiser by specifying minimum or maximum bid amount for ads.

Note: Placement-targeted ads on Google use cost-per thousand impressions(CPM) bidding and in this case quality score is based on the quality of landing page.

But Quality Score depends on relevance of keywords, quality of landing page and your ads clickthrough rate(CTR). This kind of Quality score is for keyword-targeted ads on Google and its search partners.

Note: Advertisers are advised to follow Google AdWords policy for showing their ads on Google display network. Always Stay updated with latest Google AdWords policies before starting any business campaign.
