Monday’s class – 2 March send me questions!


Writing key words ads

Writing Key Words Ads

  • Your ad has three goals, which are:

    • Generating clicks from potential customers

    • Discouraging clicks from unlikely customers

    • Setting customer expectations for the landing page (i.e., want a positive customer experience)


Writing key words ads1

Writing Key Words Ads

  • You get 4 lines of 25, 35, 35, and 35 characters

  • Line 1 (headline): Make the potential customer read the second and third lines

  • Line 2 and 3: Set expectations for what is on the landing page

  • Line 4: Points to a relevant landing page and establishes trust


Think of each line as having a separate goal being a component

Think of Each Line As Having a Separate Goal/Being a Component

There are four components to a search marketing ad.

  • The Headline: grabs the user’s attention

  • The Description Line: clearly defines the product or service you have to offer, and how it will meet the need indicated by a user’s search.

  • The “Call to Action”: tells the customer what to do after they click on your ad and land on your Web site. This should be related to the type of conversion you’re trying to achieve, from newsletter sign-ups to online sales.

  • URL: establishes trust and is relevant


Let s look at some ads

Let’s Look at Some Ads


Writing keywords ads headlines

Writing Keywords Ads: Headlines

  • Comparisons (example: “Cheaper Than Wal Mart”)

  • Divulge "secret" or cutting-edge information (example: “Wealth Strategies Exposed”)

  • Be a story teller (example: “I Lost 8 Pounds in a Week”)

  • Give instructions (example: “How to Get a 6 Pack”)

  • Arouse curiosity with questions (example: “Want to Make $500 Per Hour?“)

  • Capitalize (example: “Want the Best Pizza in Town?”)

  • Stay away from "Buy“ (Use "Discount", "Sale", "SpecialOffer" and "Coupon“)

  • Be creative and unpredictable

  • Dynamic Keyword Insertion (more on this later)

What about the urls

What about the URLs?

Each keyword can point to a unique URL


Dynamic keyword insertion

Dynamic Keyword Insertion

  • Dynamic Keyword Insertion is an advanced feature

  • Will insert individual keywords into the same ad text

  • A user sees a distinct ad for their keyword search, if their keyword triggers one of your ad group keywords.

  • This minimizes the work you'll need to do to manage larger ad groups and campaigns.

  • Let’s see an example …


Example say this is an ad you create in adwords

Quality MOUNTAIN BIKESSelection of Mountain Bikesin stock. Free shipping!http://www.example.com/?kw=mountain bikes

The user would see this ad ->

Example (Say this is an ad you create in AdWords)

Quality {KEYWORD:Bikes}Selection of {KeyWord:Bikes}in stock. Free shipping!http://www.example.com/?kw={keyword:nil}

Say the query is: mountain bikes


Example say this is an ad you create in adwords1

Quality CANNONDALESelection of Cannondalein stock. Free shipping!http://www.example.com/?kw=cannondale

The user would see this ad ->

Example (Say this is an ad you create in AdWords)

Quality {KEYWORD:Bikes}Selection of {KeyWord:Bikes}in stock. Free shipping!http://www.example.com/?kw={keyword:nil}

Say the query is: Cannondale


Dynamic keyword insertion1

Dynamic Keyword Insertion

There are variations you can use to capitalize your dynamically inserted keyword as follows:

  • keyword - No capitalization, all word(s) are in lower case

  • Keyword - The first word is capitalized

  • KeyWord - Every word is capitalized

  • KEYword - Every letter in first word is capitalized

  • KEYWord -Every letter in the first word AND the first letter of the second

  • KEYWORD - Every letter is capitalized

How do we do it?

  • Using one of the AdGroups that you are response for, design a Dynamic Keyword Insertion ad for that AdGroup (include Dynamic Keyword in headline, snippet, and URL

  • Now, test what the user would see for each keyword in your AdGroup (i.e., simulate the dynamic Insertion)

  • Which keywords make sense for Dynamic Keyword Insertion? Think about putting these in a separate AdGroup.

  • Once done – team time!
