Google Ads and Organic Links: The differences
Most of us know what a Google Ad is: it’s the links that appear at the top of a Google Search that have the little ‘ad’ next to the link.
They look very similar to the other links, but they are ‘paid for’ to be up there, to try and attract you to click those before the natural ranked pages. We are not Google Ad experts – we don’t work with Ads because we prefer to help get your website high up on Google using various proven methods.
We are happy to support our clients to do things with Ads if they are familiar with them, but those links are up there purely because they are paying to have them there.
Poorly ranked sites can be at the top
If a site ranks poorly, the owners often pay to ‘force’ them to the top, by paying per click. We have known instances where a site made with Wix, or perhaps Yell, has not been done right by the person building it. So the essential codes are missing. So they instead use Adwords to push it up. This is a smart way to push a website up; conversely, some don’t like to click those links are they feel they don’t “deserve” to be up there as they don’t have a properly written website. Or, they just want to see the ‘natural’ websites, not “clicking on an advert”.
An Organically Ranked website is better
Earlier in this blog about Google Ads and Organic ranking, we mention ‘other links’. These are the ‘organic ranked’ pages.
Google crawls the web using it’s own unique and … shall we say… special way of sorting the pages that takes priority over other search engines. If your site ranks really well, for your specific keywords, they it appear further and further up the pages of links. These are Organic Ranked websites. Naturally ranked.
Google ‘BBC’, and they “organically rank” as number one. They don’t use Google Adwords.
It’s termed ‘Organic’ because it is ranked up there naturally. Nothing artificial has been used to push it up (i.e., no Adwords). It’s there because the administrator behind the website has worked hard to get it there.
Sometimes a website is high up, and can seem odd as to why it is there. An old site that looks really poor for example, when compared to those below it. This can take some time to figure out there reasoning, and months of hard work with various tricks and ideas to work with the website.
