Google Ads is a powerful online advertising platform where advertisers pay to display brief advertisements, service offerings, product listings, video content, and generate mobile application installs within the Google ad network to web users. Google Ads allows you to show your ads to the people who are likely to be interested in your products and services while filtering out folks who aren't. You can also track whether those people clicked your ads and give you the opportunity to reach potential customers as they use multiple devices — desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones.
