Now, you must be wondering that what actually a Google AdWord campaign is. You’ll get a very good idea of it from the illustration given below.
step is that you should have a Google account. If not you’ll have to make one to sign in which you can make through visiting google Adwords dot com.

Now the next step is signing in and when you sign in you’ll get a screen which is similar to this

Then going down on locations we’ll target the locations on which we would be running our campaigns on.

Now coming down on bid strategy we’ll be sticking on the default manual CPC and set our default bid which is how much we’re willing to pay per click and our budget per day. We’ll just leave the add extensions for now.

Coming down to the ad scheduling we’ll notify the start date of our campaign and the days and the time that our campaign will be running on. After setting up all this we’ll click on the save and continue button located at the bottom of the page.

After clicking that we’ll land on this page and this ad group name is basically the sup-group for your main campaign. So, in the final URL you’ll basically type your web address domain for which your website needs to be put up. The headline 1 and 2 are basically headlines of your Google ad and description is the small description that will describe your ad. Taking our example of website design and filling all the details your ad will look like this

Now when you’ll hover down to the Keywords section you’ll see keywords suggested by Google like this
