Success With Google AdWords and PPC

Tonight we hosted or SEO Training teleseminar with PPC and Google AdWords expert David Evans.

I kicked off David’s call by asking a common question I hear from Internet Marketers “Is there a way manage your own Google AdWords campaign without going broke?”

David said that he is also asked this same question weekly from clients who see that there are profits to be made with Google AdWords and PPC, however they are very worried about the money aspect. But yes there are ways to run your own PPC campaign even if you have a limited budget or if you’re unsure about the results.

David then explained some of the first things he looks at when starting up or reviewing a clients Google AdWords campaign;

  • The historical click through rate (CTR) of the keyword and the matched ad on the site. For Google, only historical performance on Google is considered. For search partners, performance on the specific search partner is used, along with how the ad performs across the search network.
  • The account history, which is measured by the CTR of all the ads and keywords in your account
  • The historical CTR of the display URLs in the ad group
  • The relevance of the keyword to the ads in its ad group
  • The relevance of the keyword and the matched ad to the search query
  • Your account’s performance in the geographical region where the ad will be shown
  • And other relevance factors such as the quality of the landing page

Some of David’s tips included;

  1. Group keywords in very narrow groups.
  2. Isolate the best keywords
  3. Split Test, Split Test, Split Test
  4. Add to Your Negative Keyword List daily
  5. Relevant Landing Pages to your Adgroup/Keyword
  6. Monitor Your Quality Scores and Improve
  7. Separate Search Ads from Content Ads
  8. What is the Emotion of the Keyword (Desired Result)
  9. What is the Demographics/Geo targeted areas of the Niche
  10. Track the conversions.

During the second half the teleseminar David answered questions from our audience that included:

Michael & Teresa Blaes – Phoenix: When you are just starting with Adwords what is the least amount you should start with and why?

Monty – Gold Canyon: Why is the landing page relevant?

Patrick Lyons – Scottsdale: Please define the difference between a Campaign and an ad group?
