Do Google Ads work?

  • I've been tempted to try the Google text ads for my business. I'm just not sure what I'm getting into with payments per click. Has anyone ever used them for their business and was it a positive experience?

  • Jessica, who blogs at and runs her own business (Very Baby), wrote a great three-part series for us on her experiences with advertising on her blogs. Her first installment is all about Google Ads... Here are the links:

  • Great articles. Thanks Lylah.

    Kelly, I have some on my website and blog as well - it has been so, so. There are many groups dedicated to optimizing this type of thing. Since it is not my company's core thing, I have not paid too much attention to it.

  • Thank you both. I'll take at her blogs -- thanks for the links! I'm anxious to see what she says about it.

  • Hi Kelly,

    Google AdWords, just like any other tool is best for some businesses and not so good for other. It really depends how competitive your offering is, how unique/different, how you choose the search words, how you optimize your website, how you promote your biz via other channels. Google AdWords is a very good way to build traffic to your website
