Online Ads Strategy

If Your Online Ads Are NOT Appearing On Google Search, Google Display Or YouTube, Why NOT? They Should Be. Here’s Why..

UK Internet & Google Usage Statistics
While carrying out some recent research into UK statistics on Google and internet use here in the UK we found some extremely exciting data which we found so valuable we wanted to share it with you.
Some of these stats are from Host Reviews which include topics on UK trends & how people in the UK engage with Google & the wider internet as a whole.
Including information about Google search site views, the amount of time people in the UK spend online, which sites they are spending their time and engaging with most.
How the UK population is engaging with the internet, which devices are most popular & much more!
We also found some interesting information on the stagnation of growth of social media networks from Statista.

The State Of Social Media In 2020

After a marked increase of roughly 7 million users between 2016 and 2017, social media uptake in the United Kingdom has slowed down. Despite this, the number of users continues to grow each year and is forecast to reach nearly 51 million by 2025 with a market penetration rate of approximately 73.5% nationwide.
YouTube and Facebook have had a significantly larger reach than any other social media platform! Each with a 62% & 59%  respondent share in 2019.
Which is one of the main reasons we advise our clients to concentrate on these for ad campaigns and why we offer our DFY (Done For You) ad campaigns on Google Search, Google Display, YouTube and on Facebook. Comparatively, only 29 percent of those surveyed claimed to use Instagram.(Source Statista 27th Oct 2020).
