  • See the sites where your ads appeared, at the domain or URL level

Site-by-site* performance metrics

placement performance report best practices
Placement Performance Report Best Practices
  • Optimize for success
  • 1. Re-evaluate keyword lists and ad text
    • Are your ads appearing on irrelevant pages? Take steps to optimize keyword lists and ads.
    • Consider creating content-only campaigns to tailor ad groups specifically for content.
  • 2. Utilize the site targeting feature
    • Site targeting may be used to directly target well-performing sites
      • Please note that site targeting utilizes CPM bidding
  • 3. Consider the site exclusion feature
    • Use the site exclusion tool to exclude sites which are not converting well
    • Avoid excluding sites based on subjective judgments on content or site quality
      • Page content is dynamic and may change from the time users viewed it to the time you viewed the report
      • Sites or pages you don’t find to be relevant, users may find to be useful
