Google Adword for Newbies FAQ

Since 2000, Google has been seen as the leader in the search engine industry by now. Many of Googles competitors are trying their hands at different advertising models as a way to generate revenue. Google currently seeing the most growth of them all saw the potential it had as an advertising medium and therefore was sure to follow suite sooner or later.

It did so with the launch of a keyword-targeted advertising program aimed more towards bigger companies. However it was not until later in the year when Google launched the Google Adwords program that they became a mainstream player available to even the smallest of businesses.

The original Adwords program worked well enough, however it worked on the basis of payment by impressions which didn’t guarantee the advertiser a single click so in February 2002 it received a major overhaul with the introduction of the Google Adwords Select program (nowadays it’s usually just known as Google Adwords as the original program has been discontinued).

What is Google Adwords?

Adwords is Googles version of the pay-per-click advertising model. It allows you to display ads which link directly to your website when searches are done for your chosen keywords or keyphrases. These ads are located to the right of the results which Google gives you for a search and they’re also displayed on Googles many partner sites which include AOL, Earthlink, HowStuffWorks and blogger. Recently with the launch of Googles Adsense program your ads could also be displayed on websites related to your keywords.

When you create a Google Adwords ad, you choose keywords for which your ad will appear and specify the maximum amount you’re willing to pay for each click. Remember Googles Adwords program uses a PPC model so you only pay when someone actually clicks on your ad and hence visits your website.

Adwords enables you to save money as its program Discounter automatically reduces the actual cost per click you pay to the lowest cost needed ($0.01 above competition) to maintain your ads position on the results page.

Google is competing well in this arena, in fact they now dominate the market, pulling more advertisers and revenue than former industry leader does. I don’t know how long this will last though as Yahoo INC! has just bought Overture. What hasYahoo got up its sleeve?
