How to add Google Ads and AdSense to your website

1. What is Google Ads?

Google Ads allows you to create targeted ads on Google search results, websites, and mobile apps. You choose keywords, design your ad, set a budget, and pay a small fee for website traffic when someone clicks on your ad.

2. What are the benefits of using Google Ads?

  • Accurate Targeting: Reach ideal customers by targeting specific demographics, interests, and online behaviour.
  • Measurable Results: Track every click, conversion, and dollar spent with detailed analytics. Know exactly what's working and what's not, and adjust your strategy accordingly.
  • Global Reach: Expand your market globally. Target audiences across the globe and tap into international opportunities.

3. What is Google AdSense?

If you have a website with good traffic, AdSense can help you make money. It displays relevant ads and you earn a commission for each click. So, while you create great content, Google matches your audience with ads and everyone benefits.

4. What are the benefits of using Google AdSense?

  • Passive Income Potential: Earn money as you create content! Every click on an ad adds to your revenue stream.
  • No Upfront Investment: Unlike other monetisation methods, AdSense requires no startup costs. It's free to join and free to use.
  • Variety of Ad Formats: Choose from different ad formats, like text, display, or video, to seamlessly integrate with your website design.

5. Should I use Google Ads or Google AdSense?

Well, it depends! If you're a business owner aiming to reach new customers and increase website traffic, Google Ads is the perfect solution. If you're a website owner with good traffic and want to monetise your content, Google AdSense is the way to go. But hey, if you're feeling ambitious, why not give both a try?

Google Ads and AdSense work together to create a mutually beneficial relationship that powers the online advertising ecosystem. Businesses gain targeted exposure, website owners generate revenue, and users find relevant products and services. It's a situation where everyone wins.
