What is Google Adwords?
Google Adwords is a Google product which assists users in marketing and helps them connect with potential clients. It allows its users to create ads which are displayed to potential customers, searching for certain products and services, on a ‘pay per click’ agreement. These ads are placed in the blue shaded section in the above image. Users select their ad type and content, keywords or phrases (these are search phrases that your potential clients would use to find your service or product via a Google search), daily budgets, as well as dates and times the ad will be shown. The ad is linked to your website.
What is Google Analytics?
Google Analytics is a free Google product that we recommend to our clients. It is a strong and useful addition to your site which provides statistics on visitors to your website. You will gain insight on how people are finding your site (directly or via search engines), how visitors use your site (what pages they visit and how long they stay) and what platforms visitors are using to access your site.
The information is provided in easy to understand graphs and charts.
Organic Rankings Vs Paid for Rankings
In relation to Search Engine Optimisation, an organic ranking is where you stand in a Google or other search engine search based on the relativity of your website content to the search keywords and how informative your website is for your prospective customers.
A ‘paid per click’ ranking or a paid ranking is paying for a place in a search engine result. These are the advertisements you find at the top and side of search engines (see Google example below). Google Adwords is an easy to use account where you select your daily budget and the keywords that you would like to rank higher on Google. Your advertisement is shown depending on your ranking and budget amount. Your account is charged each time someone clicks on your website link.
