What is
paid search marketing?

Paid search marketing, including Google Display Marketing, is a strategy used in digital advertising that drives traffic to your website from sponsored ads in the search engine results pages. Paid search, often referred to as pay per click (PPC), allows business owners to reach users actively searching for the products or services their business provides by bidding on the keywords they are using. The ads show only when a consumer’s search query relates to your business, and you only pay the search engine a fee after someone clicks on your ad.

Paid search gives you the opportunity to connect your ads with potential consumers when they are actively searching for what your business provides.

Where do
paid search ads show?

These ads are visible to consumers through search engines, in non-organic (sponsored) listings on search engine results pages (SERPs). These are labeled as “Ad” and found at the top and bottom of the search results. The two most popular search engines, Google and Bing, offer advertising platforms for businesses to create, target and show ads to potential customers on their respective search engines. Both associated ad platforms, Google Ads, and Microsoft Ads offer unique paid advertising opportunities to the advantage of businesses.

Google Ads offers you more advanced targeting capabilities and a greater number of users on its search engine for more advertising opportunities to help you increase your PPC campaign conversions.

How does
paid search marketing work?

Search engines decide the placement of paid ads on a results page by using a process called an ad auction. An ad auction uses your keyword bids and quality score to determine when and where your ads will show on a SERP as well as how much you will ultimately pay for a click on one of your ads.

Keywords are words or phrases consumers use to find the products or services your business provides. Your inclusion in an ad auction starts with a bid on a keyword. This bid may not be the actual amount you pay for an ad click, but it is the amount you are willing to pay.

Your quality score is an estimate of how relevant your ads and landing pages are to your keywords. Maintaining an above-average quality score is harder than it sounds but can mean lower cost-per-clicks and better ad positions on a SERP. Your bid and quality score work in tandem during an ad auction to get your ads shown above your competitors.
