Church Google Ad Groups

Church Google Ad GroupsLast Updated: May 1st, 2020

Church Google Ad Groups ensure that your website is not only found on Google, but found by the right people: people who are hurting, and those who need help.

Every day, people are searching to meet felt needs that churches can help them with, but it seems that many people are turning to the internet for answers. People seeking answers are being driven to the internet because they simply don’t know where else to turn. These felt needs can include crisis support, prayer support, marriage support, parenting support, community outreach, serving, youth activities, grief care, addiction recovery, Bible study, nearby churches, life groups, personal finance, and also other services provided by churches.

These people are searching for answers to their questions, but the sad truth is that if your church isn’t appearing in the Google search results, they are simply not going to be able to find you. Most people will go to the first website they find, and consequently, the first result on the first page of Google gets 33% of the traffic. Second place gets around 18%, and the traffic only decreases from there.

This is why it has never been more important for your church to implement a ‘Felt Needs Google Search Campaign‘. This campaign will deliver relevant content from your website through targeted Church Google Ad Groups. This will not only deliver increased visitors to your site but will also result in people who are in need of finding the help they are searching for.

What Are Church Google Ad Groups

Church Google Ad Group contains one or more ads which target a shared set of keywords. This is a marketing strategy that ensures your ads have the widest coverage, and also reaches the people who are searching for keywords related to your church. It involves grouping keywords together in an ad group, and as a result, the ad performs better as they reach a larger number of the terms people are searching for.

Following our extensive research of hundreds of churches around the country, we have compiled a list of ministries that are found in a large number of churches. Churches need Google Ad Groups that align with the ministries they’ve worked so hard to build, so we have compiled a list of suggested Church Google Ad Groups below:
