I tried to fill out the information to start a paid advertizing campian but at no time did I see how much I can exspect to pay, the rates or what my add will look like or where it will place on searches. How different are you from Yp.com and they way they run advertising?

Hi mups,

 

AdWords is different from Yp.com. AdWords is primarily pay-per-click, and the tell you that right up front. I couldn't tell what the terms for advertising with Yp.com because their web site doesn't tell you, you have to call an ad rep for a high pressure pitch.

 

AdWords is a do it yourself program. You set you budget to what you can afford, you bid on keywords the maximum you are willing to pay for a click.

 

You want to know what your ad will look like? For search ad, go to Google and search for just about anything. Your ad will look similar to those shown on the right hand side or at the top, and sometimes at the bottom. The copy for your ad is up to you.

 

You can select either only Google or you can include search partners. Unfortunately, there is no list of search partners available and you can't select or block any of them. It's an all or nothing kind of deal.

 

So, how much will it cost? Hopefully, your campaign will generate positive revenue, meaning it really didn't cost it earned. How much should you budget? No more than you are willing to lose completely to start with.

 

Best of Luck!
