Global Release Announced for Google AdWords ACE

14th Sep 2010 Paid Search, Google AdWords 1 minute to read


Google AdWords Campaign Experiments (ACE), a PPC tool that allows you to test various aspects of your campaign in real time, is set to roll out throughout the world following successful tests in the U.S.

Way back in June we reported that Google were launching the AdWords Campaign Experiments (ACE) tool for PPC advertisers; well, after much waiting, it appears that U.S. tests were successful and we can expect it to be released globally.

This is good news for anybody looking to really get the most out of their PPC advertising campaigns.

ACE provides advertisers with the opportunity to test new keywords, bid prices and landing pages in an effort to see which combinations yield the best results. So rather than overhauling your campaigns entirely, ACE will allow you to test a certain percentage of your live adverts.

By doing these kinds of tests you can better optimise campaigns without risking undoing all of your earlier hard work. You can see how much better an ad will convert by increasing bids, or whether you can improve your Click Through Rate (CTR) by going after a more competitive, but targeted keyword.

It works in much the same way as landing page testing, whereby you can target as many or few elements as you want at once to see which perform better. Results will also be clearer when you get more data, so it will be perfect for campaigns that receive hundreds of impressions a day. With ACE though you can track results in near real-time though, so if something really isn’t working it’s easy to pull the plug.

For full details though read the aforementioned post from June or visit the Google Inside AdWords blog – AdWords Campaign Experiments rolling out globally.

Keeping on the subject of Google AdWords, the leading Paid Search platform has also announced the introduction of monthly charging limits for unchanged budgets. This ensures consistent charges for each campaign based on the daily spend, which is then multiplied by the average number of days in a month (30.4).

It’s a simple enough tool, but certainly one that can help AdWords advertisers keep budgets within check.

    Koozai Supports The Drum Network and Their ‘Create Britain’ Initiative

    The Drum Network has launched a new initiative called ‘Create Britain’ which aims to show the world that Great Britain is still an awesomely creative marketplace, despite Brexit.

    Create Britain is an online interactive map that invites businesses from the creative industry to contribute a short video to claim their own pin on the map that links to their video clip. The video clips need to answer one question: ‘What makes British creativity so great?’.

    The Microsoft HoloLens and How Brands Could Use It

    When we think of reality headsets, our immediate thoughts go to viewing the world in a virtual reality (VR) from wherever we are in the world. Whether that be your own living room, office or business, VR headsets allow you to transport yourself into a completely different environment and immerse yourself in that world.

    This is what makes HoloLens different.
