What are the advantages of running a campaign with Google?

There are many advantages to running a campaign with Google Ads. The main one being that it is Google. Its reputation is well established and the company shares its visibility with you. Depending on your keyword and your field of activity, you can find yourself exposed to hundreds of thousands or even millions of users.

Secondly, Google Ads gives you a wide range of promotions. Thus, you are assured that whatever your objective (visibility, leads, sales, etc.), Google will allow you to achieve it. In addition, you have a choice to make your activity known: either to the largest number of people, or to a segmented audience to reach your targets more effectively. A site needs visibility to thrive, Google Ads allows you to do this.

What are the types of campaign with Google?

Google Ads offers different types of campaigns. The four best known and most used are : Search, Display, Video and Shopping.


The Search campaign (or Search Network) is the one that everyone sees in every Google search. Your ad appears before the natural searches with the little annotation "Ad". You define extensions, an audience, keywords and create ads with titles and descriptions based on these keywords.

After that, it's up to Google to work its magic to make you appear on its search network. Depending on the bids and competition for your keyword, you will end up at the top or bottom of the page. Search is an ideal way to get leads.


The Display campaign appears differently. You will also need an audience and ads, but you will also need to define themes, locations and images. In fact, the Display appears on Google's partners YouTube, Gmail and 3 million sites. These 3 million sites are all sites that are registered and use Google AdSense to allocate advertising space on their domain. These are the spaces that you buy to appear on.

Display is the most effective way to create visibility on your site.


Video, as the name suggests, allows you to promote your videos via the YouTube platform. You provide a YouTube link (which implies that your video must already be uploaded to YouTube) and the form you want to use, you have several choices: Bumpers, Skippables or Non-Skippables.

Bumpers are 6-second ads that users cannot skip and must watch in their entirety. They are ideal for branding a product or brand.

Skippables are videos that are longer than 6 seconds but the user can skip after 5 seconds. This means that you need to grab the target audience's attention during this time so that they watch the entire ad and want to know more.

Non-Skippables are like Skippables, they can last longer than 6 seconds but they can't be passed. This is a risky choice that should not be overdone as the viewer may be unhappy about not accessing their video because of a long ad, further damaging your brand image.


Shopping campaigns are ideal for e-commerce sites that have products to sell. Your products will be highlighted on the search network and the Shopping tab of Google for example. All you need is an image, a description, the price, the name and possibly a reference of the product. The page then redirects to your site with the product page.
