What is Google Ads:

Google Ads is a simple-to-use advertisement platform from Google. Using Google Ads, you can create search advertisements, display ads, video ads and shopping ads with ease.

Google will rank each ad and place it on top according to the ranking of ads. The ranking of ads depends upon the amount spent and the quality of ads.

Display ads:

The good old method of showing banners in websites is termed as display ads in Google Ads. Google has a network of more than 200 million websites, apps and videos where your ads will be displayed for all to see. Based on the bid strategy and bidding amount, your ads will be displayed to ‘n’ number of people who visit the websites in Google Display Network.
