PPC & Google Ads

PPC (Pay-Per-Click) and Google Ads are closely related concepts, as Google Ads is one of the most popular platforms for implementing PPC advertising campaigns. Here’s an overview of each

PPC (Pay-Per-Click)

PPC is an online advertising model where advertisers pay a fee each time their ad is clicked by a user. It’s a way of buying visits to your website, rather than trying to earn those visits organically through search engine optimization (SEO) or other marketing methods. PPC can be implemented on various online advertising platforms, including Google Ads, Bing Ads, and social media advertising platforms. Key aspects of PPC include:

Keyword Targeting

Advertisers select specific keywords or key phrases related to their products or services that trigger their ads to appear when users search for those terms.

Ad Copy

Creating compelling ad copy that encourages users to click on the ad. The ad copy typically includes a headline, description, and a link to the landing page.


Advertisers set bids for how much they are willing to pay for each click on their ad. Bidding strategies can be manual or automated.

Ad Extensions

Enhancing ads with additional information, such as location, phone number, or site links, to provide users with more context and encourage them to click.

Quality Score

Search engines like Google use quality scores to assess the relevance and quality of ads, keywords, and landing pages. A higher quality score can lead to lower costs and better ad placements.

Ad Budget

Setting a daily or monthly budget to control advertising spend.
