Questions tagged [google-ads]

(Formerly known as "Google AdWords", and different from "Google AdSense") Google Ads is an online advertising platform offered by Google, where advertisers bid to display brief advertisements, service offerings, product listings, or videos to web users. It can place ads both in the results of search engines like Google Search, and on non-search websites, mobile apps, and videos. Services are offered under a pay-per-click (PPC) pricing model.
