Advertisers using AdWords Express do not choose keywords, unlike AdWords. With AdWords Express customer’s that search phrase on Google or Google Maps, will have their advert appear, along with the advertiser’s address and number. AdWords Express has a reach between 15 – 40 mile radius around your local business.
