  How Does Google Earn Money Via Advertising (Text , Banner ,Video Ads )

       From last some days I was trying to find sources from which Google makes its money in Billions of dollars.Absolutely the major source is Advertising and selling its related services.In this article I will cover its advertising sources by which it makes income money (Such as AdWords , AdSense , AdMob etc.).In 2012 Google made USD $42.5 billion.From this article I got idea In deep how Google make it possible to make Billions from small text and banner ads.Here this is my Google as Study.I found Its answer is at Google homepage, at bottom of that page there is link "Advertising Programs" click on it.There it is at top right side of that page answer of my question ::

Google Ads Types
    Google shows 4 types of major ads there on its network and advertisers pay Google for these type of ads and Google makes lot of money of these small ads.It has major four types of ads:
  1. Search Ads 
  2. Display Ads 
  3. Mobile Ads
  4. Video & Youtube Ads              
         These types of ads are shown by major 7 sevices of online Google advertising network.These are given below but there are only major services that I've listed.

Major online advertising services by Google are:

  1)Google AdSense:

  2)Google Adwords:


  3)Google AdMob:

   4)Google DoubleClick:

    5)AdSense for Youtube & VideoAds:

      Now know about above Google online ad-services and types of ads as major point of view::


      1)Google Search Advertising::

        These Google search ads are shown via one of Google advertising service Google AdWords it is one of the main advertising product by Google.It is Pay-Per-Click (PPC) type of ad.For publishing ads advertisers have to choose "keyword" first.That keyword means the a word or phrase which will suite to your service,product or thing which you have to advertise.Now below screen shot is example of search type of ads.In that screenshot I have searched "Buy Mobile" query,before those conventional results at top side of page and at right side of page that red boundary area are Google AdWord search ads.The  ads which are there in that red marked area have used "Buy Mobile" or just "Mobile" keyword if you search "Buy Mobile" query you will see those ads related to keyword "Buy Mobile" or just "Mobile".I think now you have rough ideas about Google searched ads.

Google Search Advertising Adwords
    Now see in that below screenshot of single ad see that "Buy Mobile" keyword is in bold form its main keyword.In those ads title consist of 25 characters and below it two additional description lines upto 35 characters,below it there are 3 to 4 links also.Its format is fixed and comes with only two type at top/bottom of search results generally sizing 512*91 px or at right side of results with height 88 px and width extended upto 471 px.This is what pattern of such ads.

This is all about Google searched advertising.Now we will see next type of Google's advertising service that is Display Ads.

2)Display Ads::

     As name indicates these are displayed on realted content web pages.If your ad is is about "Sports Shoes" then it probably shown on site with subject
Sports , Fitness ,Sporting magazine related news site etc.By such accurate placement of ads right people gets right things that they want so adsense is so successful.
      These display ads are shown by 3 main ways , that are

AdMob and AdWord do handle the world of mobile advertising in case of  Google. AdMob is one of the world's largest mobile advertising platforms by Google and it serve more than 40 billion mobile banner and text ads per month across mobile Web sites and handset applications. AdSense for mobile content  and websits allows there webmasters and publishers to generate earnings from their mobile types of websites by using targeted Google ads.Int hese type of ads Google matches advertisements to the content of a website and  ads are shown on that related  mobile website.
