GOOGLE ADS. What Are They?
Google Ads, formerly known as Google AdWords, is one of the most popular PPC (pay-per-click) advertising systems in the world. The Google Ads platform allows businesses the opportunity to appear on Google’s search engine and other Google properties. They do this by allowing the user to create ads that appear outside of the organic and map results sections.

These networks make up all of the places where your ads can appear, including Google sites, websites that show relevant Google ads, and other placements such as mobile apps. The campaign type options with Google ads currently are: Search Network campaign
How does Google Ads Work?
Google Ads operates on something called a “pay-per-click” model, and using an auction style format. Google Ads users bid for keywords or keyword phrases, and then pay for each click they receive on the ads they’ve created. If you are enrolled in Google Ads, each time someone searches Google for a related product or service your ad has a chance to appear on the search results page for the keywords you have chosen to target.
Whether or not your ad appears for this search has to do with a number of different qualifications and criteria which Google outlines for us.
The two factors when multiplied together create an advertiser’s “Ad Rank”
The Google Ads system allows advertisers the chance to reach potential customers at a cost that fits their budget.
