Google Adwords is a form of pay per click (PPC) online advertising. This advertising method is used by various content sites and search engines to market websites to users through keyword research. If you are selling some product or service and want to advertise online through PPC advertising, your ad will appear on search engines when someone searches for your nominated keywords. Every time a user clicks on your ad, you pay the host company (Google) a fee. This fee is charged to you irrespective of whether you make a sale or not.
