Campaigns are used to advertise the Product or Service through dedicated Ads. One campaign may consist of Multiple Ad Groups. For example, if you have a website on books and authors, you may have separate Campaigns for your Author and Book Stores.

It may include image and text ads with different sizes and styles.

Controlling Budget

Each Campaign has a specific Budget/day, which can be changed at any time. The Ads are run and displayed by Google at Search network and Content networks with prescribed budget set by Administrator. As far as the Ad units are concerned, you can set budget for them individually, but this budget will fall under the total budget that you have set for the whole Campaign. The Budget can also be set for Content networks and Search networks separately.
