When you start using Google Ads to promote your dealership, it can be difficult to determine how to bid. You may not see your ads on Google until after you have figured it out. But there’s no need to panic. Set your bids at $1.00 to $2.00 per click to begin with and then adjust. Google has a feature where it automatically adjusts your bids based on the highest bid. We don’t recommend that you start with this option.
Your Ad Rank will determine the position of your advertisement. Google determines your ad ranking based on your bid amount, your ad’s quality, and the context in which the search was conducted. Ad Rank is a measure of the cost and likelihood that your ad appears first in Google’s Search Engine Result Pages (SERPs).
