    Common Errors and How to Avoid Them

    Google Ads can be complex, and mistakes can hinder performance. This section outlines common errors and provides strategies to avoid them, ensuring your campaigns thrive.

    Broad Keyword Terms

    Using overly broad keywords can place your ad in front of the wrong audience, leading to higher impressions but fewer clicks. Regularly review and adjust your keywords for optimal performance.

    Irrelevant Ads

    Ensure that your headline and copy match the keywords you're bidding on. Utilise Google's Responsive Search Ads feature for A/B testing to find the best-performing ads.

    Low-Quality Score

    Your Quality Score (QS) determines the rank of your ad. Focus on improving your QS to achieve better placement and lower acquisition costs.

    Poor Landing Page

    Optimise your landing page for conversions to prevent drop-offs. Ensure a seamless transition from the ad to the website to conversion.

    How Do Google Ads Work?

    Google Ads is a powerful advertising platform that allows businesses to display their advertisements on Google's search results pages, partner websites, and other areas within the Google Network. Understanding how Google Ads works is essential for marketers aiming to reach a broader audience and drive more traffic to their websites.

    Google Ads operates on a pay-per-click (PPC) model, where advertisers bid on keywords relevant to their business. Here's an overview of how the process works:

    Keyword Selection and Bidding

    Advertisers choose keywords that potential customers might use when searching for products or services similar to what they offer. They then bid on these keywords, specifying how much they are willing to pay for a click on their ad.

    Ad Creation and Quality Score

    Advertisers create ads that are relevant to the chosen keywords. Google assigns a Quality Score to each ad, considering factors like relevance, landing page experience, and click-through rate (CTR). A higher Quality Score can lead to better ad placements and lower costs.

    Ad Auction and Placement

    When a user searches for a keyword that has been bid on, Google runs an auction to determine which ads to display and in what order. The auction considers the bid amount and the Quality Score. Winning ads are then displayed on the search results page.

    Pay-Per-Click (PPC) Model

    Advertisers are charged only when a user clicks on their ad. This model ensures that advertisers pay for actual engagement rather than mere visibility.

    Performance Tracking and Optimisation

    Google Ads provides robust tracking and analytics tools. Advertisers can monitor the performance of their campaigns, identify areas for improvement, and make data-driven decisions to optimise their advertising efforts.
