Google Adwords Glossary – Basic Terminology and Definitions
You must “bid” on keywords. This is where the strategy begins, as you have to decide on an appropriate amount of keywords to bid upon. Under the right circumstances, when the keywords you bid on are searched by the user, your ads will show up.
The number of times your ads are shown on the internet.
Click Through Rate (CTR)
The number of times your ads were actually clicked over the number of impressions (think of it like a fraction).
For example, if your ads have 100 impressions and they got clicked 5 times, the CTR is 5/100 which is 5%. Obviously, the higher the better. The higher the CTR, this indicates the more relevant your ads.
Cost Per Click (CPC)
The amount of money you get charged when a user clicks your ad. The CPC will vary.
GOAL: Reduce CPC and increase CTR
Where your ad is placed on the Google search engine. The higher the position, the higher the performance (Google determines this. For example, this could be determined by higher bids and/or more relevance).
This is the most important statistic. It reflects the amount of clicks that are converting to sales (or whatever metric you appropriate i.e. it could be the number of opt-ins). Simply speaking, it’s the number of sales from your ad efforts divided by the number of clicks.
