Google Adwords Campaigns in Hull & East Yorkshire
Advertising online is rapidly overtaking traditional techniques as the best way to attract new customers to your local business.
Most people who want to find a product or service will do so online using a search engine like Google. When you do a search on Google for a local service, such as “accountant Hull”, you will notice the top results that Google returns have the word “ad” next to them. These companies are using a platform called Google Adwords, a form of pay-per-click advertising, to appear at the top of Google. It could very easily be your company appearing amongst these adverts.
What Is Pay-Per-Click Advertising?
The term pay-per-click advertising is pretty self-explanatory… an advert for your website appears on Google (either above or below the regular, organic listings) and then you pay an amount every time somebody clicks on this advert, taking them to your website.
Pay-per-click advertising is basically a live auction where you select the keywords for which you want your advert to display and then you set your maximum bid (the most you are willing to pay for one click) for each keyword. Google displays the eligible adverts for every search query, ordering them based on their Ad Rank which is a combination of the maximum bid amount and the quality score (how closely related the keyword is to the advert text and your website).
Who Can Benefit from Pay-Per-Click Advertising?
Pay-per-click advertising is a great option for both new and established businesses.
For businesses with a new website that isn’t yet ranking very highly on Google, it is a great option because it’s a quick way of having your website appear much higher on Google than your organic listing, usually on page one. This guarantees that you will get some traffic to your website, something new websites can often struggle to do.
Google Adwords can also be a great option for an established business whose website might already be on page one. By having an additional listing for your website you increase the likelihood of somebody clicking onto your website. Even if you are the number one organic result, it is usually a good idea to use pay-per-click advertising because if you don’t, there will be several paid listings (your competitors) ranked above your website.
