This agreement is designed to build on Egypt Yellow Pages Ltd existing relationships with advertisers, particularly small and medium-sized businesses, and encourage them to use online advertising as a cost-effective way to find and target new customers.

Google AdWords system focuses on user input to determine ad relevance which provides long-term benefits for both users and advertisers. Advertisers determine what keywords are related to their business and their ads will appear when a user is entering those words. AdWords offers great flexibility for every campaign by offering different payment terms (pay per click or per impression), geographical targeting and the ability to pause and start a campaign whenever necessary.

Thanks to the Google Analytics, another Google service, that combined with Adwords offers the advertiser data that provides both power and flexibility to understand the specific and unique ways customers interact with your site.

Google has more than one million advertisers worldwide. Adwords is available in 190 countries in 42 languages internationally.
