That’s why businesses pay a heap-load of money, as the ROI is extravagant. Every time a Google search takes place, unseen events take place at the speed of light. Behind the curtains, the sellers are at war for your click because Google Ads notify them that your precious click may eventually lead to a sale.

Google Ads is basically an online advertising program that allows you to create online ads to reach the masses who are interested in buying your products or services.

Along similar lines of functionality, Google’s AdSense program uses display network to show advertisements on other websites except Google’s search result pages. This display network is nothing but an extensive collection of third-party websites that have collaborated with Google.
