Are you running AdWords advertising on Google search results pages? Are your ads in the best position they could be? Read more
Google announced recently a new feature for Display Network targeting. Previously contextual targeting through the Display Network meant utilising keywords to match potential web pages relevant to the area you want to advertise in. Google have now introduced a new feature called ‘Topics’ to target your ads, with over 1,750 topics to choose from.
Much like choosing an industry or category area for listings, you can now allocate ‘Topics’ for your ad. This does mean you can target areas rather than researching every possible piece of content which might exist on a Display Network site. Topics have been created by Google reviewing all of the content on a Display Network partner site to establish which topics are relevant – this does enable a broader targeting method for Display Network advertisers.
There is a lot of confusion over the ad extensions feature on AdWords. Most accounts I come across do not make the most of them, and it’s still used infrequently compared to the rest of AdWords features. Over the next three weeks I will review and explain the three different ad extension features – location, product and site link, they are great if you can utilise just one and even better if you can use all three.
The new feature allows up to five MCCs to link to an account, what’s more there is now no distinction between UI/API and API-only links.
We recently had reason to suspect that one of our client’s Pay per Click campaigns was being targeted by one of their competitors. We suspected that they were clicking the ads to try and use up the daily budget early in the day. The trouble was how to identify who was clicking the Ads. Read more
SEO and PPC are quite clearly a separate skill set when it comes to implementation. However the aims of both disciplines intersect ultimately: that of prompting a user to complete an action. Organic search is to some extent anarchic, so if you want to make a page rank for a targeted keyword, shouldn’t every page of your site also be a landing page?
Google announce new Enhanced CPC option within their AdWords Pay Per Click platform, helping advertisers automatically vary bids for high converting phrases.
Enhanced CPC is a brand new option within Google AdWords. Like many of their recent developments, this is designed to help account holders get more from their budgets. In this instance though, it is through manipulation of bid process for campaign keywords.
That probably sounds a little ominous. Handing over power to Google to bid on the price you pay for each click on their PPC platform. But it is actually reasonably straightforward and safe too; yep, a pretty good idea all round.
If you’ve ever wondered who you’re bidding against in AdWords and how your ads are performing comparatively, you may be in luck. Google are now offering an insight into the auction process at keyword-level, enabling advertisers to see how their campaigns are weighing up.
