Paying to Show up on the First Page of Google

Posted November 01, 2014 by Joe Kashurba

Google has a paid advertising program called Google Adwords where you can pay to show up on the first page of search results.

Paid search results show up either above the normal search results or on the right side of the page, and they are either highlighted in yellow or have a yellow “Ad” icon to identify them as advertising.

With Google advertisements, you write your ad, you choose what keywords you want to show up for, and you only pay when people actually click on your ad.

The cost per click depends on how many other businesses also want to show up for that keyword. For some industries, clicks cost as little as $2, but for other industries clicks cost $50 or more.

This is not something that makes sense for everybody, but it’s an option that you should know about.
