For many of you reading this post, you may wonder why these other strategies exist at all. Shouldn’t people only be paying for clicks that directly impact their ability to generate revenue and ultimately profit? I struggled with this concept early in my career, but ultimately came to the conclusion that not every single marketing activity can be direct response.
Understanding which websites already rank for your keyword gives you valuable insight into the competition, and also how hard it will be to rank for the given term. Are there search advertisements running along the top and right-hand side of the organic results? Typically, many search ads means a high-value keyword, and multiple search ads above the organic results often means a highly lucrative and directly conversion-prone keyword.
I have often gone on the record with my skepticism toward paid search campaign management software, and I have several reasons for being skeptical. My main concern has been that these tools over promise on features and under deliver on performance. They claim to replace the analyst by using algorithms to optimize campaigns, but in reality they replace the fun piece of the analysts job (improving results) and replace it with the tedious task of managing to get their campaigns to work properly in the software. I have been burned by this sales pitch twice and have written about this in a previous post called “Paid Search Bid Management Tools: Great Investment or Save Your Money?” – so feel free to read that post for more details.
HubSpot also has a campaign tool that allows you to associate keyword phrases, related blog posts, emails and landing pages with a particular campaign so you can get a better idea of the overall performance. If a particular set of keywords doesn't seem to be bringing in new site visits or converting leads to customers, it might be time to search for alternatives.  

Beacons are little physical objects (under two square inches, in most cases) that can be placed in desired locations. Their sole purpose is to detect you, or more specifically, your device, as you move into their range. The beacons themselves don’t send content. Like geofencing, a signal is triggered when you’re near one, and a server sends a push, text, in-app message, or even an email (though currently, that’s a less likely application for beacons).
From there, you can bid on all of the important keywords using Amazon PPC. Don’t forget to go for long tail, too, which Keyword Scout can help you with. So instead of spending a bunch of money on just “garlic press” you’d spend less money on terms like “long handle garlic press” and “stainless steel garlic press” or “kitchen gadget for garlic” etc.
Sie wusste, dass es in ihrer Region bereits mehrere Anwälte gab, die sich – so wie sie – auf Medizinrecht spezialisiert hatten. Und die alle weitaus mehr Erfahrung und bessere Kontakte hatten als sie. „Aufgrund einer Konkurrenzschutzklausel in meinem alten Arbeitsvertrag musste ich praktisch bei Null angefangen. Ich konnte keine Mandanten oder Kontakte mitnehmen. Ich musste also herausfinden, wie ich trotzdem gegen meine Konkurrenten bestehen könnte“ beschreibt Tatjana Schmelzer ihre knifflige Ausgangssituation. Sie beschloss, ihre Analyse zu nutzen, um ihre eigene Nische zu finden, denn ihr war klar: Wenn sie die Strategien ihrer Wettbewerber herausfinden könnte, hätte sie die ideale Grundlage, um ihre eigenen Stärken zu entwickeln.
Suchmaschinenoptimierung hat das Ziel bei relevanten Suchbegriffen mit relevanten Seiten auf guten Positionen in den relevanten Suchmaschinen vertreten zu sein. Diese Suchmaschinen können zum Beispiel abseits von Google auch Suchmaschinen, wie Bing, Yahoo oder  Yandex sein, aber auch  spezialisierte Suchmaschinen, wie Amazon (Produktsuche), Indeed (Stellensuche) oder Trivago (Hotelsuche) sein. Die Darstellung des in den Suchmaschinen zu Verfügung stehenden Textes (Snippet) soll dabei den Nutzer zu einem Klick auf das Ergebnis motivieren mit dem Ziel die Erwartung des Nutzers in Hinsicht auf inhaltliche Übereinstimmung zwischen Suchbegriff, Text und Inhalt der Webseite zu erfüllen. Voraussetzung ist der klare und eindeutige Zugang zur gesamten relevanten Website und optimal für Nutzer aufbereitet, und das unabhängig vom Device (mobilfeundlich).
How do you figure out what keywords your competitors are ranking for, you ask? Aside from manually searching for keywords in an incognito browser and seeing what positions your competitors are in, SEMrush allows you to run a number of free reports that show you the top keywords for the domain you enter. This is a quick way to get a sense of the types of terms your competitors are ranking for.
Beyond the city level, your geotargeting on Facebook can further narrow your targeted customers to within miles. For example, a fairly standard radius is 10 miles and closer when you’re targeting a specific product or service in a particular vicinity. If you’re in a more rural setting, you can expand that radius to 20 or 25 miles. Urban areas like Chicago, Los Angeles and New York are targeted within one mile.
1,000+ keywords: if it’s just you or 2 of you, this is probably more than you can chew off. It’s not hard to gather 1,000 keywords though, so if you’ve got the time, the people and the inspiration, it usually does pay off to write a lot of meaningful content. Do make sure that all those keywords relate to your products or services as otherwise it’s nonsense and make sure that you’re structuring your site well around it.
Not only did this information give a more accurate picture of lead cost, but it identified another side-effect of optimization that neither we nor the client had previously anticipated: PPC was playing a much larger role in driving revenue than ever before! More qualified leads were coming in at a lower cost, but the revenue-to-lead ratio also jumped significantly. As a result, ROAS for PPC had nearly doubled with the increased spend in 2017.
Großes Augenmerk sollten Sie auf die Stärken und Schwächen Ihrer Konkurrenten legen. Schwächen bieten Ihnen Ansatzpunkte für Ihre eigene Strategie, denn Sie können sie zu Ihrem eigenen Vorteil nutzen. Ist Ihr Konkurrent beispielsweise für seine großen Verspätungen bei der Auftragsausführung bekannt, können Sie Ihre Pünktlichkeit in den Vordergrund stellen. Die Stärken und Alleinstellungsmerkmale Ihrer Wettbewerber sind allerdings ebenso wichtig, denn sie können Markteintrittsbarrieren darstellen, die es zu überwinden gilt.
Um konkurrenzfähig zu bleiben, muss ein Sportler fitter sein als seine Mitstreiter - ein Unternehmen hingegen muss innovativer sein, mehr anbieten, Kundenwünsche besser erfüllen als seine Wettstreiter. In diesem Prozess ist vor allem eines wichtig: Der Blick nach rechts und links. Genau zu erforschen, was konkurrierende Unternehmen machen, passiert im Rahmen einer Wettbewerbsanalyse. Im Folgenden wird erläutert, worum es sich dabei handelt, welche Einblicke eine solche Analyse liefert und warum gerade digitale Marktforschung sich optimal eignet, um Konkurrenten systematisch zu durchleuchten.
In 2016, we used ROAS to reduce non-converting spend and improve overall profitability. At the end of the second quarter, CPA was nearly 18% over our $20 goal. To address this, we examined our highest CPA campaigns and noted that one campaign (“Campaign 1”) was at nearly twice our CPA goal for the past year, but had also generated the most revenue relative to its spend. On the other hand, we could see that our poorest converting campaign (“Campaign 6”) had not closed any leads in the past 12 months.

Hi. I have a question in regards to what is the optimal ‘amount of keywords’ for a PPC campaign? I have list of about 850, so I am unsure if I should put all of them in each category (ie Broad, Phrase & Exact), or should it only be 100 or so? I have gone through each an every one and they are relevant to my product, so would be interested to hear others thoughts on this. Thanks.
Many marketers experience this issue during PPC campaigns: They’re attracting the attention of their audience and driving traffic with their ads, yes—but those website and landing page visits aren’t resulting in the amount of conversions they would have expected. If you are also experiencing this, your ads may be targeting consumers who aren’t quite in the decision stage of their buyer’s journey through the use of too many top-of-the-funnel (TOFU) keywords in your ad copy.

Getting your site to rank on Google is not as simple as plugging a keyword into a website and hoping for the best. In short, placing them into an intentional keyword strategy is just the beginning. By definition, keywords are words or phrases that describe and sum up a central idea pertinent to your business and marketing strategy. Keyword strategy means using keywords in your business and ad campaigns to attract your target market audience. When it comes to B2B marketing, keyword strategy is necessary to draw in your target audience. As B2B marketing is not the typical Buyer-to-customer setup, your keyword strategy needs a B2B marketing and relations spin. For example, if your business were looking to bring in ordinary customers, your keyword strategy might look like this:
Another way to define a perimeter is not by distance, but by time. A company named iGeolise developed a platform they call TravelTime, an API that allows mobile apps and sites to search by time rather than distance. This could be useful for a condo unit near downtown looking to attract workers with very long commutes, or a restaurant targeting hotel patrons within a 10-minute walking distance.

Bluetooth technology is less expensive than GPS and WiFi. However, while bluetooth makes beacons great, it’s also their downside, as many folks keep bluetooth turned off when they’re moving around in the world. To understand the tech in greater detail, Estimote, a beacon vendor, does a good job of explaining the physics and math of how beacons work.
All sorts of companies in all sorts of industries can make use of geo-targeting.  By refining the ad copy to include the city name and a reference to the current weather – for example, including the words “start sleeping cooler” in an ad during periods of hot weather – Purple Mattress, an ecommerce bedding brand has been able to generate higher click-through rates by online shoppers. In an effort to update its aging "Let's Go Places" campaign,  Toyota incorporated city-specific information into each of its Google ads, encouraging consumers to go to places and attractions near them.  Whole Foods targeted ads to the smartphones of consumers visiting nearby supermarkets, encouraging them to come to a nearby Whole Foods nearby exchange for better deals.

Stadiums, airports, universities, and malls are examples of specific venues that can be targeted in order to reach specific interest groups. Stadiums provide a great opportunity to focus on specific short engagement events with an audience defined by that event. They often host fans from two specific cities or schools or fans of a specific music genre that is heavy in one demographic. A band like One Direction, for example, is likely to attract school-age female fans.
It's wonderful to deal with keywords that have 5,000 searches a day, or even 500 searches a day, but in reality, these popular search terms actually make up less than 30% of the searches performed on the web. The remaining 70% lie in what's called the "long tail" of search. The long tail contains hundreds of millions of unique searches that might be conducted a few times in any given day, but, when taken together, comprise the majority of the world's search volume.

Although more and more keywords are getting encrypted by Google every day, another smart way to come up with keyword ideas is to figure out which keywords your website is already getting found for. To do this, you'll need website analytics software like Google Analytics or HubSpot's Sources tool. Drill down into your website's traffic sources, and sift through you organic search traffic bucket to identify the keywords people are using to arrive at your site.
Funny thing is we’re not seeing users click on the extension itself very often – slightly more often than we’d see for sitelinks, but not by much – maybe 15 percent of total clicks, albeit not necessarily on the extension itself. It may be the way that we’ve set it up (we say chat with a live expert rather than text us), so that may have skewed the behavior.
Um das Beispiel des Supermarkts A erneut aufzugreifen, könnte er zum Beispiel im Nachhinein wissen wollen, welche Namen von Supermärkten Verbrauchern im Großraum Berlin spontan einfallen, und welche Supermarktketten im Süden Deutschlands eher bekannt sind. Außerdem könnte Supermarkt A analysieren, in welche Lebensmittelgeschäfte ältere Menschen eher einkaufen gehen und welche bei 20 bis 30-Jährigen beliebt sind. Stellt er zum Beispiel fest, dass der eigene Markt gerade bei jungen Menschen in Berlin verglichen zur Konkurrenz eher unbeliebt ist, könnte es ein nächster Schritt sein, diese Zielgruppe für künftige Marketingstrategien ins Auge zu fassen. 

If you’re feeling overwhelmed, I’ve got some good news for you: you don’t have to spend countless hours manually creating custom landing pages for every ad group. Instead, use dynamic text replacement. Dynamic text replacement allows you to replace certain areas of text with with specific keywords. For example, you could use dynamic text replacement to change the heading and CTA of a landing page to the specific keyword that a user searched for. That way, when they visit your landing page, it appears to be a completely personalized experience.
In the last year, Google and Bing have both indicated a shift to entity-based search results as part of their evolution. Google has unscored this point with rich snippets and Knowledge Graph, and Bing has now upped the ante on personal search results with Bing Snapshots. Find out how you can adopt strategies to stay ahead of the curve in the new world of semantic search results.
Choosing which PPC strategies to deploy will largely depend on the type of business you have and the goals you’d like to achieve. By now, almost all of Google’s above-the-fold search engine result page (SERP) space is PPC advertising, which includes Google Shopping ads and PPC Adwords ads, as well as organic search results. Given this increasingly competitive and limited landscape, it’s important that you use the tools available to get a leg up on the competition. To help you navigate the field, here are 8 of the best PPC strategies your competition is not doing (and that you should be).
Grundsätzlich geht es bei der Konkurrenzanalyse darum, die Konkurrenten besser kennen zu lernen und einschätzen zu können. Eine gute Konkurrenzanalyse gibt dabei nicht nur Auskunft über Anzahl und jeweilige Marktanteile der Konkurrenten, sondern zeigt auch die Stärken und Schwächen (die Sie ausnutzen können) der Wettbewerber auf. Die Konkurrenzanalyse ist unter anderem auch für mögliche Investoren wichtig, die aufgrund der Konkurrenzanalyse die Erfolgswahrscheinlichkeit Ihres Unternehmens besser einschätzen können.
The final and most important metric is conversion. Make sure that you set up your conversion goals within your analytics. That way you can see which keywords are not only driving traffic but out of that traffic what percentage is converting. That is how you can measure keyword success. If you’re not doing this, then it becomes more difficult to identify your highest performing keywords.
To make the most of that investment, it’s important to plan for keywords that you know are a good fit for your brand, and that people are already searching for. Afterwards, optimizing your videos to help YouTube make the match for those keywords is critical. It’s one of the best ways to ensure your videos will work hard for your business long after you’ve published them.
