Google Ads is an online advertising platform that allows businesses to create and display ads to potential customers.
Google Ads, formerly known as Google AdWords, is a pay-per-click (PPC) advertising platform that enables businesses to create and display ads to potential customers when they search for specific products or services on Google. Advertisers bid on specific keywords and pay for each click on their ads, with the cost per click (CPC) varying depending on the competition for the keyword. Google Ads also offers a range of targeting options, including location, demographics, and interests, allowing businesses to reach their ideal audience. Additionally, Google Ads provides detailed analytics and reporting, allowing advertisers to track the performance of their ads and make data-driven decisions to optimize their campaigns.
