It will identify the AdWords ads that are contextually relevant to your website visitors based on the content of your site. The identified AdWords ads are then displayed in your AdSense box. The ads on your site are the same ads that appear on the right side of a Google search results page for a specific keyword.

Contextual advertising is the process of displaying ads on a web site that are targeted to the individuals visiting the specific web site.

ADWORDS Programme:

AdWords ads are the source of all the AdSense income you are able to generate. As a result, you need to fully understand the AdWords system in order to appreciate how the AdSense system works. Google describes AdWords as "a quick and simple way to purchase highly targeted cost-per-click (CPC) advertising, regardless of your budget." These paid ads (sponsored links) are displayed by Google on the search engine results page along with the non-paid (natural results) for a given keyword search. In order to create a Google AdWords ad, it is necessary to specify what keyword or keyword phrase must be input by the visitor before your AdWords ad will be displayed. In addition, you need to set the maximum amount that you will pay to Google for each click on your AdWord.

Though in light of latest Click Fraud, the google has introduced 2 new algorithms namely Smart Pricing and Everflux algorithm to counter The click faud and pay high CPC only for Fair clicks. Apart from this Google now has a new strategy too for Adwords called Adwords ranking

AdWords Ranking Google will rank an AdWords ad based on the maximum CPC, the click through rate (CTR) and the relevancy of the ad text. Google prefers relevant and well-targeted AdWords ads. Google determines ad placement using the value formula: CPC x CTR. The ad is placed higher as the valuation rises. It's possible for an advertiser to have a high rank position with a low CPC if the CTR makes the value to Google higher than other ads with a higher CPC. Google requires a minimum CTR ( it is belived to be around 25%), while same for Adsense is 10%, thus google encashes atleast 15 % for every click on Adsense ad no matter if they are fraud or fair. In order toincrease the profit of the AdWords program value, The CTR of all AdWords ads are monitored by Google on a continuous basis. An under-performing AdWords ad may be disabled by Google if the CTR does not improve

This hub came up when I searched "understanding adsense adwords" here's what I don't get: if I open a website with hostgator I get $100 in free adwords, does this mean I create my own adwords commercial for the site that I am going to create?

Does this mean I determine how much I will charge google to run the ad? So at say, $0.10/ad I would have the ad run one thousand times before my free $100 ran out.

Is the end goal to drive people to my own website so that they might click on ads on my site? Or is it just to get traffic there, and find another way to monetize the site i.e. products, services, etc. or is it both?

Sorry if this is confusing, I've been trying to get a clearer picture of this for months,
