Advanced Tips to get the best from your Adelaide Google AdWords Management
Figuring out new ways to maximise your Adelaide Google AdWords Management each month can be frustrating!
Most Adelaide Marketing Agencies focus on the (very important) tactics of their Adelaide Google AdWords Management with advertising copy optimisation, but that will only get you so far.
Eventually, your Adelaide Google AdWords Agency will need to find advanced ways to increase their click-through rates.
If you or your Adelaide Digital Marketing Agency need help, read on!
1. Silo Traffic with Negative Match Keywords
Negative keywords are a crucial part of a healthy Google AdWords account. Just like the name suggests, they are the opposite of regular keywords.
Regular keywords tell Google what terms you want to bid on. But negative keywords tell Google where you absolutely don’t want to show up.
You should always add negative keywords to keep your ads relevant; however, there is a way to take your negatives to the next level and improve click-through rates.
Negative keywords come in three match types: exact, phrase, and broad. Adding one of those negatives to a campaign will prevent your ads from showing for that match type.
If you want to get as high of a click-through rate as possible, add your exact match regular keyword as exact match negatives to your broad and phrase campaigns. Your users will be funneled to ads you made for their specific queries.
The CTRs for your exact match keywords should be much higher than your other keywords. By adding your exact keywords as negatives to your broad and phrase campaigns, Google does not have the option of sending users to less-relevant campaigns (that happens a lot).
Quick Tip: Funnel traffic to your exact keywords using negative keywords.
2. Leverage Location Bidding
Users from different geographies search in different contexts.
Imagine two users searching for the query “Umbrellas”, but one lives in Darwin and the other in Adelaide in January. The meaning behind the query changes depending on the physical location where it was entered.
The key to improving CTR with location bidding is to first understand how geography affects user behavior down the funnel. You want to make sure that increasing your CTR for a specific geography is worth the investment.
Do users from Adelaide have a higher ROI than users from other locations? If so, that would be a good place to start. But first, you need to start tracking. If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it.
Your Adelaide Google AdWords UI offers tracking parameters called ValueTrack parameters. These parameters help search engine marketers track anything from the geography of a click to the device that drove it. You should implement all of them but for now, focus on implementing the two geography-based ones: physical location (loc_physical_ms) and location of interest: (loc_interest_ms).
The physical location parameter tells you the location of the user. The location of interest will tell you the location they were searching for (if applicable). If a someone from Adelaide were searching for hotels in Sydney, the first parameter would relate to Adelaide and the latter to Sydney
Make sure that you are passing these parameters into your analytics system. Once you can tie the data to user performance, you can see what geographies are worth investing time into.
Quick Tip: Track the location information of clicks and use that information to improve click-through rates.
3. Remove Duplicate Keywords
Keyword creep is a problem that every PPC account must deal with eventually. As time goes on, you add keywords that make sense at the time. Eventually, you step back and realise that your once tidy account has a problem with duplicate or irrelevant keywords.
Don’t worry if you pull a search query analysis and see that you have search queries matching to the same keyword in multiple places. It happens. Your Adelaide Google Adwords Account will not prevent you from adding duplicate keywords in separate campaigns.
Running an analysis is easy. Navigate to the keywords tab for your account and click the search terms button in the top left. This will show you the queries and keywords that are driving paid search traffic to your website.
If you pull an analysis and see this problem, keep the keyword that performs better for your business. Pause the other one and watch your overall CTR rise as more traffic see the appropriate ads.
Quick Tip: Use only one instance of a keyword per match type to avoid splitting traffic.
4. Opt Out of Google’s Search Network
A lot of the clicks that Adelaide marketing agencies see in the AdWords UI don’t actually come from www.google.com. Instead, they come from Google’s vast network of partner websites called the Google Search Network.
Search network websites can range in quality. Some are legitimate while some are complete spam. Sadly, Google doesn’t let Adelaide marketing agencies blacklist specific search partner websites, so you’re either all in or all out.
The key is to figure out if the partner network is right for you.
Remember those ValueTrack parameters? There is one called the network parameter that lets marketers track the network of a click all the way to the final conversion.
You can implement the network parameter to break out your important KPIs by network. See if your search partner traffic drives a profitable ROI before shutting it off completely. If your KPIs are bad for search partner traffic, you can improve them by simply opting out of the network.
Quick Tip: Google’s search network can send you a lot of bad traffic. Consider opting out of it.
5. Implement Dynamic Keyword Insertion
Maximizing your click-through rates can take a lot of time and energy, but dynamic keyword insertion can reduce that.
Dynamic keyword insertion allows advertisers to create an empty space in your ads where the user’s search term will appear. The idea behind it is that nothing can be more relevant to the searcher than the query they actually searched for.
Let’s imagine that your company sells Holdens. As a search advertiser, you create campaigns and ads groups around the different types of Holden cars – “Holden Astra” or “Holden Barina”. Dynamic keyword insertion automatically injects the user’s hyper-specific search term into your ad copy.
You would create ads that include action keywords and then the dynamic keyword:
- Find Your Holden Barina
- Buy The Perfect Holden Astra
Quick Tip: Dynamic keyword insertion makes your ads more relevant by inserting the search query.
