0:28 – Remember, this cost applies per click, regardless of whether the click leads to a conversion.

0:36 – ‘Click-Through Rate’ (CTR) is another important metric. It’s the percentage of people who click on your ad divided by the number of times your ad is seen (impressions), then multiplied by 100. A higher CTR indicates better ad performance.

1:01 – An ‘impression’ is counted each time your ad is displayed, whether or not it’s clicked.

1:10 – ‘Quality Score’ evaluates the effectiveness of your keywords and PPC ads, influenced by CTR, ad copy, landing page, and relevancy.

1:22 – ‘Conversion Rate’ measures the percentage of people who click on your ad and then complete an action, like filling out a form. It’s calculated by dividing the number of conversions by the total number of clicks, then multiplied by 100.

1:55 – ‘Keywords’ are the terms people type in that trigger your ad.

2:07 – A ‘Bid’ is the amount you’re willing to pay for each click.
