Google have hardly been subtle in the changes they’ve made in recent times, nor have they been apologetic. From major algorithm updates to tweaks in the colouration and complexity of sponsored ads (integration within maps, site links and even images for instance); the face of results pages has changed drastically. However, some might argue that this is more of an effort to please stakeholders, rather than users or advertisers.
Running an ecommerce PPC campaign can be an extremely profitable way to sell a huge range of products. However, many online retailers fail to structure their account to make the most of this advertising platform. The following guide will help you manage large scale ecommerce campaigns, boost your Click through Rate and improve the profitability of your AdWords account.
There are many ways to optimise an AdWords account, from improving the structure to implementing ad extensions, but one of the most important things is to improve your results from analysing the data. This is the first in a series of posts about data segmentation.
Some people don’t like to get in to the nitty gritty numbers and get scared by spreadsheets, but the methods I’m going to cover make understanding the numbers easy and simplify your optimisation, and for once, my post won’t require you to open a spreadsheet! Unless of course you want to…
We had a target to achieve as a company – by the end of March 2011 everyone working on PPC accounts was to have taken both the AdWords Fundamentals Exam and the AdWords Advanced Exam. In addition to this, I was also aiming to take the Google Analytics Individual Qualification. I’m very pleased to report that we all took the exams and passed, but this post is here to go in a bit more detail than that.
We now have 9 AdWords Qualified staff who work on clients PPC accounts and we also have me – a Google Analytics Qualified Individual to help the team out with all things analytical; although I have to admit they’re all pretty good without me, I’m just the one who gets excited about it and in to the really techy bits. I wanted to write this blog post to explain my experiences with the two exams – one was easier and the other harder than anticipated.
The Google Keyword Tool is no more, replaced with a combination tool called Keyword Planner. But what is the Keyword Planner, and if you don’t like it, what alternatives are there? In this post we look at the new way to get your AdWords research out of Google, and other free and paid tools to help you do your keyword research.
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.
Since the launch of Enhanced Campaigns, AdWords have come under fire for becoming too expensive for small and local businesses.
This presentation looks at AdWords tactics for local business, to make AdWords more cost effective so you can turn the odds in your favour again.
The latest exposé comes courtesy of the BBC, who found a number of people who had unwittingly coughed up for tickets that didn’t exist from companies that are equally elusive. The reason why they had fallen foul of this old ruse was simply that it appeared at the top of Google.
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.
These developments often blur the line around what would be covered under the definition of advertising and marketing, as they become more and more invasive of consumer space.
