MLA is a type of citation that makes values for accepting sources used in a research paper.

The source information required in a parenthetical citation depends (1.) upon (e.g. Print, Web, DVD) and (2.) upon the source's entry on the Works cited (bibliography) page


Begin your Works Cited page on a separate page at the end of your research paper. It should have the same one-inch margins and last name, page number header as the rest of your paper, the page Works Cited (do not italicize the words Works Cited or put them in quotation marks) and center the words Works Cited at the top of the page.

Typically, many search ads means a high-value keyword, and multiple search ads above the organic results often means a highly lucrative and directly conversion-prone keyword.
