As far as I am concerned with blogging, Google Adwords is the only ad network which I prefer best to advertise a blogger blog. Although I get my whole traffic from search engines but in the beginning I used Google Adwords to promote my blog. You can also use Google Adwords to promote your blog and help it to start running. 


Why Google Adwords?

Only few of us know how to use Google adwords and its good for blogger because of its policy which is to pay only when you get clicks. It means you don't have to pay a fixed amount to advertise your blog but you choose your own budget and also pay per click amount. Moreover if you don't get clicks and your site is against Google Adword's policy you will get your money back. It has tremendous features which makes it better than other advertising networks.


Payment Methods:


- Credit Or Debit card.

- Bank Account.

Mobile App:




Stay up to date about your ad campaign clicks and impressions via smart phone app(Andoid/iphone). Just go to your phone's app store and download Google adwords app. Login by using your blogger account and stay updated about your campaign as well as keep full control over your account from your phone.

How To Create My First Ad Campaign In Google Adwords?

Read and follow below steps to create your first campaign and start promoting your blog/website.


Step 1: Click on Create Your First Campaign.




Step 2: Give a title to your campaign, Select the type of ads either Standard or All features, Choose networks and devices(on which ads will show up e.g computer, tablets, mobile etc).




Step 3: Scroll down the page and move to Locations, here you have to choose the countries in which you would like to show your ads. Choose All the countries or your own country or if you want to target specific country then choose Let me select. If you choose Let me select then type the name of the country in the search box below and select it.


After location you have another option below "Languages" so check the languages in which you would like to show your ads. Be sure that the languages you select aren't only languages but these languages will decide that on which Google domain your ads will appear. 


Say that you choose English, now your ads will be shown on the Google domains which have English language e.g Google.co.uk, Google.com, Google.pk. 


It doesn't mean that your ads will not be shown in the countries you choose.

Step 4: In step 4 there are three things that you have to deal with, one is to choose a bid strategy, budget for your ads and other is to ad extension to your ads.


Choose Basic options in bid strategy because Advanced options are difficult to understand.


- In bid strategy area you have two options:

  1. Adwords will set my bids to help maximize clicks within my target budget.
  2. I'll manually set my bids for clicks.
Choose I'll manually set my bids for clicks because if you let Google to choose bids for you then you will get more and more traffic but have to pay high rates.

How to set bids in Google Adwords?

After choosing I'll manually set my bids for clicks you will have two options:

  1. Default bid.
  2. Budget.
In the default bid type the rate which you will pay for each click(PPC).

Tip: For a quick boost in traffic while spending lowest amount set $0.02 as default bid.

In budget area type $1 or $2 no matter what you type but it is just a limit in which you will pay Google Adwords. For example if you set a budget of $1 and default bid $0.02 then you will get 20 clicks for 1 dollar and after that your ad will stop running because your daily budget is consumed. If you don't get 20 clicks in a day then your remaining budget will be used next.
