What is Google AdWords

– At the top above search.
– To the right side of the search.
– At the bottom of the search.

Advertising is displayed on all Google AdWords resources. It can be a text, pictures or banners.

How to Create a Google Ads account?

To get started with Google Ads, you need to create an account. Registration will take no more than 2 minutes.

In addition to the basic data, it is also recommended to link a phone number to increase the security level. To complete the registration, you must enter the code sent to your phone.

The next step after registration is to create an account in Google Ads. The service will immediately prompt you to select the goal of your advertising campaign. This is easy enough to do if you already have an idea about the system or have set up Google Adwords.
If previously you haven’t worked with contextual advertising on Google and don’t know how to set up Adwords, then the goal of the advertising campaign can be set later, when all the preparatory steps have been completed.

To complete the account creation, you need to provide additional information and get familiar with the interface.
