Google AdWords is a service, provided by Google, that allows an advertiser to place their ads in the search engine results and the google advertising network. The advertiser must use pre-set “keywords” and supply a relevant ad to be shown in the search results, when a user searches for those specific keywords. Googles automatic algorithm will assess the relevance of the ads in conjunction with the keywords and the landing page; only allowing the most relevant ads to be shown at the top of the search results. In the Google Advertising Network, Google uses another algorithm to distribute relevant ads onto relevant webpages, according to those keywords. Remarketing allows the advertiser to display additional adverts, on participating websites, after the user has left the advertisers website without converting.
When a user clicks through to our website from a Google ad, a tracking cookie is placed on the user’s web browser. This cookie will hold information on the user for up to 30 days before expiring.
