AdWords at a Glance

What can you do today to generate more business? By now, you may be quite familiar with AdWords. However, there’s always something new to learn, as AdWords is constantly evolving and improving. Each day as you pick up your mouse ask yourself if there’s something you can do, however small, to improve your AdWords’ effectiveness and attract more business to your site. But before we check out some of the latest AdWords news, let’s quickly revisit the highlights of the first two pieces of this guide.

Top 6 AdWords Tips T  rack conversions To start tracking conversions, all you have to do is add a little piece of code to the page your visitors reach when they’ve fulfilled your online objective (buy something, join a mailing list, etc.). It’s often the page that says, ‘Thank you for your enquiry/purchase.’ This feature is very easy to set up, and you only need to do it once. But it’s crucial, because it tells you which keywords are generating enquiries or sales, rather than just clicks. How often? Apply once. Visit: google.co.uk/ads/conversiontracking

U  se negative keywords Remember to use plenty of negative keywords. By defining what you don’t want from your traffic, negative keywords can help filter out fruitless clicks that don’t lead to conversions, thereby increasing your return on investment. How often? Only 1 hr per month. Visit: google.co.uk/ads/negativekeywords

Create ad groups Want more visitors to convert? Try to answer searchers’ queries quickly and accurately using ad groups – small bundles of similar words with closely matching ads that lead to very specific web pages that closely match their search. Tailored ads equal more conversions, and a higher Quality Score.

 ook at the search terms report L Your users’ search terms will change over time. So be sure to check out your search terms report once a month or so to keep your keyword list fresh and relevant and filter out less productive visitors by spotting irrelevant search terms and turning them into negative keywords.

 T est to find the best

Some ads work better than others. Some phrases just chime with customers. Don’t leave it to chance.

Find out what works best by comparative testing. Run two different ads simultaneously. Your winning ad is the version which gets you the highest conversion.  ● A unique selling point Tell potential customers what makes your business stand out. ● Keyword inclusion Search queries will appear as bold font in your ad. A keyword-rich ad will boost your click through rate.  ● Call to action Buy now, while stocks last. Call us today. Tell your customers what they need to do next. It works!

 eep an eye on quality K AdWords rewards more relevant ads by giving them a higher Quality Score, which means your ads will cost less and get better page position. Quality Score is one of your strongest incentives to use AdWords as effectively as possible. What to focus on? Your users want to enjoy a quick, seamless progression from their search query to your ad and then on to a relevant, useful web page. To review notes on how to give that to them, see tip three, ad groups, on the previous page.

What’s new at AdWords? At Google we don’t believe in standing still; we believe in new ideas, new software, new products. In that spirit, here are four new AdWords features you may not yet have heard about.

R  emarketing If at first you don’t succeed... remarketing gives you a second chance. Not everyone will be willing to convert the first time they see your ad. But they may have visited your site and come close to making an enquiry or even a purchase. Why not remind them of their interest, and create a second chance to attract that enquiry or sale? AdWords’ remarketing option lets you re-present your product or service to potential customers who’ve shown interest in your offering by showing your ad again on the Google Display Network. You can even target prospects based on pages they’ve visited by using a special ad designed to reflect their specific area of interest, or by offering, for instance, a special discount on a particular product they viewed, provided they buy it in the next twelve hours.

A  d sitelinks Display your key pages in Google’s search results Highlight up to four pages on your site in a preview display. Searchers can then jump straight to the relevant page on your site. This offers them the option of a direct route to their search target – delivering a swifter and more satisfying search result to your potential customers.

C  ustomise your home page Make yourself at home with AdWords Want to get straight to the data you need? Customising your AdWords home page means seeing only the info you’ve selected, with no distractions or wasted time. Just the facts at a glance, exactly as you’ve chosen to prioritise them.

M  anage your AdWords on the go by phone A simplified version of your desktop AdWords designed for easy viewing on your mobile. This is great when you’re on the go all the time – but want to keep an eye on your progress or make some changes. Track your daily spend or compare weekly stats when you’re out of the office – but not out of touch with your campaign.

Success Story Yankee Candle used remarketing on the Google Display Network to re-engage shoppers, increase conversion rates by 600% and cut cost-per-conversion in half The Yankee Candle Company, Inc. is a leading designer, manufacturer, wholesaler and retailer of premium scented candles. A successful online advertiser for several years, Yankee Candle looks to grow its customer base through innovative means. When they learned about remarketing on the Google Display Network they were very open to testing it. Remarketing allows you to re-engage people who’ve previously visited your website as they browse sites across the Google Display Network. With remarketing on the Google Display Network, you can tag users who visit your site, and then show them tailored ads when they later visit other pages on the web. In April 2010, Yankee Candle launched its remarketing campaign. Using Google’s code, Yankee created a remarketing list

of 41,000 visitors who had placed items in their shopping carts in the last 60 days, but who had not completed their purchases. They then showed both text and image ads with discount offers to these previous visitors across sites in the Google Display Network to encourage customers to return and complete their purchases.

Yankee Candle’s remarketing campaign has generated positive results, with nearly 10% of its abandoned shopping cart visitors returning to the site. The remarketing campaign’s conversion rate was also 600% higher than the account average, and the cost-per-conversion was nearly half the account average.

‘The campaign was working well, but we decided to optimise further with our Google team,’ says Holly, senior pay-per-click manager at @Website Publicity, Yankee Candle’s search engine marketing agency.

For a mature search account, they realised what you need are new features that bring success, not only with new customer acquisition, but with engaging existing customers as well.

‘With a few tweaks, we had even better results.’ They raised the remarketing campaign’s cost-per-click (CPC) bids to increase the chances of ads showing on more display sites, thereby boosting reach ‘We made that change one afternoon, and the following day, we saw a 468% increase in ROI,’ she recalls.
