What is Google AdWords?
Google Adwords is an advertising model for companies and businesses that want to display their ads on Google and its advertising networks. It allows anyone to create relevant ads by using and bidding on keywords that customers will likely use when searching the web. It can also target users specifically by preference, demographic, website placement and more. Various ad forms can be used on different platforms, such as text ads, display ads, video ads and even ads specifically targeted for mobile and apps.
What is Google Certification?
Though every marketer can use Google AdWords and its services, it takes extensive knowledge and skills to use proficiently and effectively. In light of this, Google set up a certification course to help marketers learn and make better use of AdWords and its services. To become Google certified, one must pass the Fundamentals exam and one of the 5 specialisations currently available. Passing these exams means that you are highly competent in using these tools and have met Google’s standard for its advertising model.
