Small Businesses in the Big AdWords World
When AdWords first began, small businesses could bid cheaply on keywords, meanwhile raking in tons of traffic. However, as AdWords has grown in popularity, large businesses have been spending more, driving the cost-per-click for highly competitive search terms. The New York TImes reported that during just six months during 2012, Amazon spent over $50 million, and the University of Phoenix spend nearly $38 million. So how can small-budget businesses afford AdWords?
Low-competition, high volume keywords are key. So is relevancy. Picobarn hones in on the most relevant keywords for your business, and targets those search terms in your business’s niche.
How AdWords Works

When people see your ad in the sidebar or on the top of the Google results page, they can click on your site to learn more and buy your product.
