What Consumers Want
Consumers are not necessarily looking for products or services when they begin their search, but, as they are presented with information that matches their search phrases, they may be converted into buyers.

A good PPC campaign involves three main components: research on the appropriate keywords to use, grouping those words together and organizing them effectively into rich content, and creating and managing ad groups. If you create a keyword-rich ad campaign and build Google AdWords manually, you could lose a lot of time. It takes too long to see the results. If you choose phrases manually and then place them in targeted content and wait for customers to click on them, you will have content sitting out there not generating revenue.
