How To Setup Google Guaranteed
Google Guaranteed ad is what you see on the topmost page of Google search, which is a huge shift in how Google do pay-per-click or pay-per-lead.
Here is how it works: you set a budget that you want to get based on the number of leads that you want to get in a given week. Sometimes, you spend more than your set weekly budget, but you can never spend more than what you have set in your maximum budget. Like what was previously mentioned, you are only charged per lead. Another great thing about Google Guaranteed Program is you can file a dispute anytime should a charged lead did not convert on your end. You just send Google a recording of your dispute, and if Google found the dispute credible, they will give your credit back.

Simply provide your services areas that should match up the services areas mentioned on your website.
Step 2: Enter the days and hours of your call availability
