Hi Ines! Was just going to come up with a reply for you and came across a new article on SELand: explaining a useful technique for testing mobile-specific ad copy. I hope you'll find it useful! The only thing I would add is that you should have a decent amount of traffic to your landing page in order to get meaningful results. Good luck :)
Die oben stehende Aufzählung ist bei weitem nicht abschließend. Eine Wettbewerbsanalyse kann beispielsweise auch eine Analyse der Webseiten der Konkurrenten beinhalten (Usability, Ladegeschwindigkeit, Ranking, Informationsgehalt etc.) oder um eine generelle Branchenanalyse erweitert werden, die einen EInblick in Risiken und Chancen innerhalb der gesamten Branche gibt.
No matter how marketing-savvy your company may be, you can always learn more about your customers, especially when it comes to personalizing your advertising. That’s where geotargeting can again be beneficial. The information received from geolocation can help a brand determine where a consumer is looking so it can better tailor events, products, and services to those consumer interests in the near future.
Because someone who is looking for something that specific is probably a much more qualified searcher for your product or service (presuming you're in the blogging space) than someone looking for something really generic. And because long-tail keywords tend to be more specific, it's usually easier to tell what people who search for those keywords are really looking for. Someone searching for the head term "blogging," on the other hand, could be searching it for a whole host of reasons unrelated to your business.
You can use this tool to get new ideas for paid search campaigns as well as ideas to drive organic traffic. One big advantage of the tool is it gives you historical statistics on past search volume, as well as predictions about the number of clicks and conversions. You can search for keyword ideas based on what makes sense for your products, services or other phrases you're trying to target. 
Auch die Bestsellerautorin und Karriereberaterin Svenja Hofert gibt in ihrem „Praxisbuch für Freiberufler“ wertvolle Tipps für eine gute Wettbewerbsanalyse mit einfachen Mitteln. Sie hat dort eine Tabelle veröffentlicht, die sich besonders kleine Gründer zunutze machen können. In diese Tabelle werden zunächst die wichtigsten Wettbewerber eingetragen. Dann werden Informationen zu ihrem jeweiligen Alleinstellungsmerkmal, ihrer Erfahrung und ihren Kontakten ergänzt und die eigenen Vor- und Nachteile ihnen gegenüber notiert (Svenja Hofert: Praxisbuch für Freiberufler, Frankfurt 2007). So erhält man zwar kein vollständiges, aber ein umfassendes Bild davon, wie sich der Markt darstellt, in den man mit seiner Gründung einsteigen will.

Using geo-targeting, you use smart marketing tactics. A great example of a successful use of area segmenting is evo, an e-commerce sporting goods store. When they took the leap to open up three brick and mortar stores. Their first step was to send out an email blast for a $200 shopping trip to users in the area. Though the campaign had a 58% conversion on mobile users, the campaign wasn’t as effective at driving traffic to their store fronts.
Once you have determined which keywords you should focus on, use them repeatedly in your content. Use an Excel sheet to keep an organized eye on your usage by tracking how many times you use each of your selected terms in your content. Why? The latest Google algorithm update is penalizing pages whose anchor text is over-optimized, and having an updated list of the terms you have already used will help you to vary them smartly.
En linkanalyse er en komplet analyse af alle websitets indgående backlinks. Den vil typisk fylde 40-50 A4-sider. Med en linkanalyse får du kortlagt alle de problematikker, der måtte være med dit websites backlink-profil, og alle de muligheder for forbedringer der måtte være. Med en linkanalyse i hånden får du og dit firma en klar strategi, der tager udgangspunkt i jeres nuværende linkprofil, og som viser, hvordan der skal arbejdes med linkbuilding fremadrettet.
Then how can someone afford to pay $54.20 per click if it does not generate profit? The answer is simple: they are spending that money to build a brand and they are not focused on the profitability on that individual click; they are focused on profitability over time and they most likely have a budget assigned to building that brand. Not having to focus on achieving profit for individual click puts a company at a tremendous advantage for displaying their brand prominently in search results. It also makes it harder for profitability based marketers to compete.
Exhaustive – Your keyword research should include not only the most popular and frequently searched terms in your niche, but also to the long tail of search. Long-tail keywords are more specific and less common, but they add up to account for the majority of search-driven traffic. In addition, they are less competitive, and therefore less expensive.
After a week or so, you should be able to identify which keywords convert to sales, and at what ACoS. You will want to scan through the keywords and slowly reduce the bids or pause keywords that have an ACoS that is higher than your threshold–for Jungle Stix that threshold is 33% ACoS. By the same token, you will want to identify any keywords that are below your ACoS and you can think about increasing the bid so that your ad will appear more frequently for that converting keyword.
But while many marketers understand the value of geotargeting, not many are ‎likely to understand how the technology behind it works.  Having a firm grasp on ‎the technology though is actually critical in this case, as different solutions take ‎different approaches to the problem of determining the physical location of a ‎consumer, and the simplest solution is usually the least accurate.  Just as traditional ‎strategies don’t always translate well to digital, many desktop strategies don’t ‎translate well to mobile.  ‎
When they started to open these “stores”, it didn’t make sense to advertise to everyone because not everyone would be near the pop-up stores. So instead, they only advertised within a small radius of their shop. By using geo-targeting to drive traffic to their shops, they were able to save money and resources while still achieving success in their pop-up shops.
Hi!! Newbie here! So my boss wants our product to be the first few products to be shown at the top when you search for example “plus size tops”. I am using Manual campaign, added “plus size tops” to keywords, using suggested bid with a daily budget at $50. However, I still don’t see our product whenever I search using “plus size tops”. What am I doing wrong?
It’s critically important to ensure you are collecting good data, and to do this you must correctly configure Google Analytics and Google AdWords to share data. It is important that this is customised to your reporting needs and individual objectives as you can then use that data to optimise your campaigns. This chapter outlines how to measure your campaign to enhance your PPC strategy.

Reason: This metric can help you to know if you have well-organized content. Traffic generated from certain keywords can provide good insight into which pages a visitor typically sees as a result of that keyword query. In case you are using Google Analytics for measuring your visits, you can do it within the following path: Traffic sources > Search > Organic > Landing Pages as 1st dimension & 2nd dimension: Keyword.

Geographically targeted ads can increase returns significantly over "blind advertising." On the Internet, clickthrough rates are improved compared with advertisements not targeted by location. The results in a given situation depend on the geographical distribution of potential customers, a variable that requires intensive research to accurately determine.
If your account is currently achieving a return on ad spend (ROAS) of 5, and your goal is to achieve a ROAS of 6, your strategy should focus on efficiency optimizations to improve ROAS. If your account is achieving a ROAS of 5 and your goal is to increase revenue as long as your ROAS is at or above 4 (and you have additional budget to spend), then your strategy will need to focus on growth initiatives.
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.

This is a particularly useful strategy for local businesses (or any business that takes calls, really) to target people who are likely to call them directly from a search query. With Call Extensions you can easily add a click-to-call button to your mobile ads and phone numbers to your desktop ads. Additionally, you can track customers who make calls from your website using Website Call Conversions.
Having initiated a Geo Targeting conversion experiment, you are faced with an inherent problem: how can you verify that your Geo Targeting works? One option is to ask people that are located worldwide to browse your targeted pages and inform you of the results. Another, far more convenient method, is to use a “global geo proxy network” that allows you to browse the web from different global locations.
Suchmaschinenoptimierung, oder englisch search engine optimization (SEO), bezeichnet Maßnahmen, die dazu dienen, dass Inhalte wie Webseiten, Videos und Bilder im organischen Suchmaschinenranking in den unbezahlten Suchergebnissen (Natural Listings) auf höheren Plätzen erscheinen. Durch das bewusste Beeinflussen der Suchmaschinenplatzierungen von zum Beispiel Videos auf der Plattform YouTube oder Webseiten auf Google können diese besser gelistet werden und neue Reichweite generieren.

Amazon will decide which one to select based on bids and relevance. Even with ads, if A9 deems one product “less worthy” than the other and they both have the same ad spend, the “more worthy” product will appear. And yes, you would end up competing with yourself on some ad words. Fortunately, Amazon’s back end remarketing tools (such as “other similar tools”) will help give similar products synergy.
Anschließend ist sie alle ihre Kollegen durchgegangen, die sie aus Fortbildungen und von Fachtagungen her kannte. Vervollständigt hat sie die Liste ihrer Mitbewerber schließlich durch einen Blick ins regionale Anwaltsverzeichnis. „Ich habe mir zu jedem einzelnen notiert: Was kann der besser? Was kann ich besser? Was macht der besonders gern und was nicht? Wo gibt es Überschneidungen zu meinem Angebot? Wo kann ich denen gefährlich werden und wo die mir?“ Ihre Informationen hat Tatjana Schmelzer teils aus persönlichen Gesprächen gewonnen, teils über die Internetseiten der Kanzleien.

These are usually single-word keywords with insane amounts of search volume and competition (for example, “insurance” or “vitamins”). Because searcher intent is all over the place (someone searching for “insurance” might be looking for a car insurance quote, a list of life insurance companies or a definition of the word), Head Terms usually don’t convert very well.

Let’s take the example of a guy, we’ll call him Jerry, who runs a coworking space in the city of Bristol, UK. He’s concerned about his keyword rankings, as seen in WooRank’s SERPs tool. Even his main keywords are only providing ‘+100’ rankings. (If you have used our SERPs tool, you know that this is the number we give to search engine results that rank out of the first ten pages in Google and Bing for a certain query.)

Andrew Osis, President and CEO of Poynt Corporation explains: "There is a universe of mobile consumers who are searching for local retailers, theatres and restaurants. Poynt's application seeks to bridge the gap between the consumer and the retailer by using location, time of day and keyword queries to deliver offers where and when that consumer is looking to transact. As an example, a person performing a restaurant search at 8:30 am is likely looking for somewhere to eat breakfast. It would make sense then, to deliver them an offer for a breakfast promo or discount. This contextually- and geographically-relevant ad was delivered to them at the exact moment that they were looking to make a purchase."
Um herauszufinden, was Verbraucher wollen und was sie dazu bewegt, in einen bestimmten Laden zu gehen, muss ein Markt seine Kunden befragen. Was muss ich liefern, damit meine Kunden mir treu bleiben? Was haben andere Supermärkte, was ich nicht habe, und wie wahrscheinlich ist es, dass meine Kunden dorthin abwandern? Grundlage für die Beantwortung all dieser Fragen ist das Erstellen eines passenden Fragebogen.

Privacy and security concerns are, by many accounts, the one thing holding location based services back from exploding. One of the first backlashes came from Nordstrom customers, when that retailer tracked customers through its physical locations for market research purposes. The word “creepy” was applied at the time, and it’s still a word commonly found in discussions of how location-based marketing can tend to make people feel.
The basic content strategy you’ve put together—what you want to create, and how—should give you a good place to start. Now it’s time to break that strategy into potential topics and keywords to cover on your channel. Once you have a topic, like “dog training” or “styling a scarf” you can start to test the relevant words and phrases you think customers will search to find answers.
Geography can also be used to predict desirable demographics and information about users in that area. Neighborhoods can often be delineated by residents’ income bracket, age, ethnicity, education, and many other demographics or interests. Politicians often draw district boundaries into areas of common political constituencies that also predict demographics or common values.
Use Google Keyword Planner and your list of potential search ideas to create a list of terms/phrases that align with your brand and that, ideally, aren’t highly competitive. Google ranks competitiveness in Keyword Planner, seen above. You can also get an idea of how competitive a keyword search is by looking at the price of the suggested Adwords bid. Competitive search terms are typically much harder to rank for.

Ad text plays an important role in the success of your ads. It is the form of marketing communication that advertisers can use to promote their product or service on search platforms. An effective ad text consists at least one of your core keyword, attractive discounts and promotion and a call to action. The quality score of your ad depends on multiple factors and your ad text is one of them. Your ad text should be unique and appealing. Include discount amount in your ad copy and also add a strong call to action that can compel searchers to click on your ads. Use action words like buy now, order now, resister today or sign up here. Include one of your keyword in your ad text and match your ad to your landing page.

For this reason, some companies have taken a more direct measurement approach ‎to IP geolocation vs. trying to infer it through ping triangulation.  It’s far more ‎straightforward, but requires a lot more manual effort.  Basically, these companies ‎send cars out to drive up and down every street in the country and log WiFi IP ‎addresses as well as their physical location to populate the same table that more ‎traditional geolocation companies build through technical means.   Google and ‎Skyhook both use this approach. 
Wenn du dauerhaft auf dem Markt bestehen willst, reicht es nicht aus, eine Wettbewerbsanalyse oder Konkurrenzanalyse nur einmal durchzuführen. Es empfiehlt sich, jedes Jahr eine neue Wettbewerbsanalyse zu erstellen. Der Aufwand für die erste Analyse ist naturgemäß hoch. Für die folgenden Analysen kannst du auf deinen Arbeiten aufbauen – du kennst dann zum Beispiel schon die besten Recherchequellen und musst nicht erneut danach suchen. Vergiss nicht, auch dein eigenes Unternehmen regelmäßig unter die Lupe zu nehmen – zum Beispiel mit der bewährten SWOT-Analyse. So hast du gute Chancen auf vordere Positionen im Wettbewerb.
Eine Wettbewerbsanalyse kann auch zum Ziel haben, Marketing und Vertriebsstrategien zu erarbeiten. Informationen zu der strategischen Ausrichtung und der Vertriebs- und Marketingstrategie der eigenen Konkurrenten können verwendet werden um eigene Strategien zu entwickeln, zu optimieren oder gegebenenfalls funktionierende Systeme zu übernehmen und anzupassen.
Below, you can find our suggested stages for implementing your keyword strategy, specifically if you are trying to get a newer business with a branded service / product to rank higher in an industry with competitors who have already established a presence in the main search engines. We leave it up to you to decide when it is best to move to each stage. In our opinion, what works for SMEs that need to boost their presence on the web is to develop a keyword strategy that starts out general, without worrying too much about competitors. This strategy can then evolve over time to include more and more branded keywords as well as aiming for some SERPs of better-known competitors.
Page Content: The days of minimum keyword density are gone. The number of times you use a keyword is really determined by the length of your content. If you are creating unique, quality content your will naturally use your keyword throughout your page. Sprinkle latent semantic keywords throughout your content to strengthen the page’s topical relevance.
Try to match the offer you make on your pages (product, service, message, etc) to the visitor’s specific location. This sounds simple but requires careful thought and planning. Measure funnel performance for visitors that are geo-targeted versus a control group – are people finding this “filtration” helpful or confining in a way? Statistically, do visitors that are directly served with local offers differ in behavior than those that are asked to “choose your location”? Test it!
Dies ist vielleicht der entscheidende Punkt beim Erstellen der Wettbewerbsanalyse. Du legst die Struktur deiner Analyse fest. Die Frage ist hier: Welche Informationen benötigst du, um eine Antwort auf die Hauptfrage deiner Wettbewerbsanalyse zu bekommen? Im Idealfall erhältst du zu jeder Kategorie für jedes Unternehmen genügend Informationen, sodass du diese direkt vergleichen kannst. Welche Informationen aus welcher Kategorie können dies sein?

Either way, for the third time, thank you, Chandan. I tend to start my analysis (my own website or that of competition) using something simpler (like or the tool I mentioned before that was flagged for some reason). It gives a lot of technical data quickly, so long as you can decipher it and draw some conclusions. And, naturally, take some of it with a grain of salt. But once that is done, your list is the obvious next step into in-depth analysis.
