The Language of PPC

LANDING PAGE: The page on a web site where one is taken after clicking on a advertisement. While this can be any page, it is often a page designed to expand on the service or product mentioned in the initial advertisement.

CAMPAIGN: A campaign contains one or more ad groups sharing the same budget, schedule and geo-targeting criteria. A campaign is typically created to support a particular marketing goal.

KEYWORD: A word or phrase that relates to the products or services you wish to advertise. When prospective customers are looking for information related to what you sell, and they type your keywords into a search box, your ads may be displayed.

smart phone targeting

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

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.

content network 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 - Best Practices

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 With Keywords

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
