Hi Chukwudi,

You should probably delete the blog URL so you comply with the forum rules as Archit told you. It's enough to know currently that you are running a blogger.com blog.

Technically speaking you are allowed to choose the option of running AdWords ads linked to your blog. However, please be advised, that in regard to a given Google search, only one of the ads will display on the SERP that promote all those blogger blogs. Since there are Ks of such blogs out there you'll need to be very competitive to earn awareness or use very rare and specific keywords.

Best,
Lakatos

Hey Chukwudi,
Back to your original question - Yes! Adwords can be a huge help.

You can start by choosing what kind of approach you want to take.

A Search campaign shows your ad about your blog to people actively searching for information on Google about "what your blog is about". It will help get you to the first page of the search results.
A Display campaign can show your ads to people who are just browsing around online, looking at other websites that are similar to "what your blog is about". It will help show your blog to people who share interests.

Both have a lot of benefits to advertising your blog and the advantages of keeping costs low. Keep in mind that you can utilize both options Smiley Happy

Good Luck!
