Best Practices




Separate keywords into different ad groups
by similar core words.



Ads should be highly relevant to searched
term.



Landing Pages should be highly relevant to
Ad clicked.



Be more specific using "negative keyword
matching" or other match options besides
"broad matching."

What Else

Can


You Do With


Paid Search?



Geo Targeting Basics


Select any combination of locations to
target with your campaign.



Countries, Territories, Regions, Cities
and custom areas.



Adwords provides an Interactive Map
targeting tool to make this easy.

Adwords Interactive Map Targeting Tool


Search or browse for
countries, territories, regions,
and cities.



Select a preset bundle of
locations.



Choose a point on the map
and specify a radius around


it where your ads will appear.




Target a custom shape on the
map.



Exclude areas within your
selected locations.

Adwords Product Extensions


New feature that can highlight your products
directly in your Google.com search ads.



Your Google Merchant Center account must
contain a product that is relevant to the
searcher's query.



Shows the images, titles, and prices of your
closest matching products with your ad.



When the user clicks a product image, they
will be taken to the destination page listed for
that product.

Smart Phone Targeting


High End Phones (iPhone, Android,
etc.) that have Full Internet
Browsers



Ads show on Google Search
results, Content Network, and
relevant mobile apps.



Turned on by default when creating
a new campaign. Can turn off in the
"Networks, Devices, and
Extensions" section.



Different than "mobile ad" ad type,
which shows on WAP mobile
phones.

Smart Phone Targeting Best Practices


Create a separate campaign that only targets
these devices.



Do not use Flash since most of these devices
do not support it currently.



Make sure your "Call To Action" is in an
easily seen spot on the landing page since it
is much more difficult to navigate on these
devices.



Consider shortening your conversion
checkout process.

Best Practices




Separate search and content
-

they don't play
well together.



Ads should distract the reader's attention.



Use keyword themed campaigns (automatic
placements) and general/high traffic
managed placement campaigns to mine for
targeted placements.




Start with smaller budgets.



Run placement performance reports.



Content Network
-

Targeting With Keywords




Campaign settings = relevant pages across
the entire network.



Use small groups of themed keywords
(match doesn't matter).



Set up filtering to minimize unwanted traffic
(negative keywords, standard category
filtering, site exclusions).



Content Network
-

Targeting Placements



Campaign settings = relevant pages only on
the placements I manage.



Use small groups of themed placements with
appropriate ads and landing pages



When targeting high traffic sites, add one or
two keywords for better targeting
