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.
Research Access suggests many other ways that geolocation can help improve the market research process. For example, a consumer products company could use geolocation to “understand how frequently a sample of shoppers visits different grocery chains,” or an auto manufacturer could apply it to collect “a sample of minivan-driving moms to better understand how the product is used.” There are a multitude of ways geolocation can help improve understanding and inform strategic direction for companies of all sizes so they can more closely meet their prospective targets’ desires.
Ab 2005 wird das Wettbewerbsrecht grundlegend reformiert und mit dem europäischen Wettbewerbsrecht kompatibel gemacht. Gemeinsame Regelungen, die sich an den EU-Vertrag anlehnen, erlauben nunmehr die grenzüberschreitende Zusammenarbeit der Kartellbehörden in Europa. Diese kleine Gesetzesübersicht bietet eine grundlegende Systematisierung des Gesetzes in seiner Fassung ab 2005. Der alte Rechtsstand wird nicht mehr betrachtet.
…Well, this is a best practices post, right? It may seem obvious to use the highest converting ad formats in your PPC campaigns to boost their conversion rate, but many marketers don’t actually know what these optimized ads look like—nor that they can do the optimizing themselves even after their ads go live! In this next section, we’ll break down a few important ad formats and options that you should have on your radar and use to maximize your conversion potential:
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 :)
The same goes for PPC advertising. Potential customers who are targeted with your PPC ads don’t care about your need to fill your pipeline or your salespeople’s need to meet their quota—the truth is they only care about what’s in it for themselves. Cater to this by crafting your ad copy in the second person, keeping the importance on the consumer and not on your company.
I just want to ask if is it necessary that the keywords we used on the PPC campaigns are present on our listing ( title, back end keywords, description). And also can we use other brand or competitor names on our PPC. I apologize, I am new to this PPC campaigns and as of now I am reading, searching and watching about it but still have lots of question in mind. Thank you so much.

To use this feature, you’ll need at least 15 conversion in the last 30 days, though you should really only use it if you have more historic conversions in order for AdWords to more accurately adjust your bids to meet the target. If you’re selling a product or service that is particularly seasonal, keep a close eye on your Cost per Conversion target to make sure that AdWords doesn’t reduce your bids too much if you have a period where conversions aren’t happening as much as they were during peak season.

Ever heard the saying that a picture is worth 1,000 words? Well, a video is worth 1.8 million, and YouTube is the best place to promote your video ad to an engaged audience. One of the most popular YouTube ad formats, TrueView ads, play before other videos on the site and allow users the option to skip after five seconds (and you don’t have to pay if a viewer skips your ad!). Since there is less competition on YouTube compared to other search engines, your brand has a massive opportunity to reach and convert a ton of consumers across a variety of different demographics.
Eine vollständige Konkurrenzanalyse beziffert die gesamte Anzahl der direkten Mitbewerber und enthält Angaben zu den Marktanteilen der Konkurrenten. Ziel ist es dabei, die besonders einflussreichen Mitbewerber zu bestimmen. Wenn Sie keine Angaben zu den Marktanteilen finden, dann versuchen Sie doch in Ihrer Konkurrenzanalyse die Marktanteile der 3-5 größten Wettbewerber zu schätzen.

Es reicht nicht aus, nur zu definieren, auf welchen Keywords die Webseite ranken sollte – vielmehr folgt aufbauend auf der Erstellung einer Keyword-Liste die Bewertung der Suchbegriffe. Basierend auf der Bewertung der Keywords werden diese priorisiert und es wird definiert, welche Seite für welchen Begriff optimiert werden soll. Das Ergebnis dieses Prozesses ist die Keyword-Strategie.

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.

Oberste Zielsetzung ist, aus den Erkenntnissen einer fundierten Wettbewerbsanalyse Konsequenzen für den eigenen Betrieb zu ziehen, um die persönlichen Stärken optimal zu den Schwächen des Wettbewerbs zu positionieren. Dazu nutzt es, im Vorfeld eine Sammlung der wichtigsten Fakten zusammenzustellen. Prozesse wollen durchleuchtet, Leistungen verglichen werden
Conversion: This strategy is what most of us are after. We want our keywords to draw traffic to our website or landing page, and then we want that traffic to convert by making a purchase or otherwise doing something specific like filling out a contact form, picking up the phone, or downloading something. In this case, long-tail or more specific keywords will likely work best for you.
Even national marketing campaigns can benefit from geo-targeting, as regional differences create opportunities to test multiple messages and refine them as a campaign continues. Geo-targeted experiments has been used successfully by businesses, charities and even political campaigns. Factoring out cultural and ethnic variations, there are still subtle regional differences in something as universal as language. A campaign for donations might be better served by using a “donate” button in one area and a “support” button in another. Similarly, customers might respond differently to the phrase “book your trip” than they do to “buy your ticket” or “schedule your trip.” The same goes for the look and feel of the advertising copy and other content.
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.
Wichtige Konkurrenten zu identifizieren, ihre Strategie zu durchschauen und das gesammelte Wissen zu nutzen, um sie letztendlich zu überholen - die Grundlage für ein solches Vorhaben ist eine Wettbewerbsanalyse. Wer eigene Schwächen im Vergleich zur Konkurrenz kennt, weiß, woran gearbeitet werden muss. Wer die eigenen Stärken kennt, der kann sie ausbauen, stärker betonen und sich damit einzigartig machen. Eine Wettbewerbsanalyse ist die Grundlage für die strategische Positionierung eines Unternehmens im Markt.

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.
Understanding the balance of terms that might be a little more difficult due to competition, versus those terms that are a little more realistic, will help you maintain a similar balance that the mix of long-tail and head terms allows. Remember, the goal is to end up with a list of keywords that provide some quick wins but also helps you make progress toward bigger, more challenging SEO goals.
If you don't know the difference between head terms and long-tail keywords, let me explain. Head terms are keywords phrases that are generally shorter and more generic -- they're typically just one to three words in length, depending on who you talk to. Long-tail keywords, on the other hand, are longer keyword phrases usually containing three or more words.
Geo-targeting (sometimes spelled geotargeting or geo targeting) involves detecting a user’s location, and serving them communications based on that location. Those communications might be ads or other content, like an email or geo-targeted push notification. Geo-targeted communications are delivered most commonly through text or push, and might also come when you open a certain app or social media site. The benefit of geo-targeting services are simple: enhanced personalization.
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.
