Search engine advertising is one of the most popular forms of PPC. It allows advertisers to bid for ad placement in a search engine's sponsored links when someone searches on a keyword that is related to their business offering. For example, if we bid on the keyword “PPC software,” our ad might show up in the very top spot on the Google results page.
If you are fortunate enough to have access to lead revenue data within AdWords, either by Salesforce linking or some other conversion import means, there are even more options available to you. You may not yet have discovered, or may not yet have taken advantage of the “All conv value / cost” column in AdWords. Available at the campaign, ad group, keyword, and search term level, this metric serves as a close substitute for ROAS, easily accessible within the interface.
Another method that you may consider is following Google’s Webmaster guidelines for country segmentations and either using subdomains or subfolders for specific countries and languages. This assumes that you have a generic TLD (.com, .org, etc). For example, es.example.com or www.example.com/es/ for Spain/Spanish. This might be the better local SEO solution because it also means that the subdomains or subfolders you specify will be shown in local searches on Google, based on TLD. The downside is that it requires a fair amount of work to setup, and might not coincide with your branding efforts internationally. An important note about this method is that it does not solve the problem of language, but only the country location. So if your service or product is available internationally, you probably shouldn’t limit the geographic location for which Google serves results. Nonetheless, this approach serves as a good platform to initiate conversion optimization on those segmented pages or sites.
Knowing your business’ target audience and matching it up with where they live or work helps you find those who might be most interested in your product or service.  For example, a ticket broker might want to advertise NCAA basketball tickets in the state of Kentucky and might think of using Kentucky basketball in its messaging.  However, Louisville basketball would be preferable for any advertising within 50 miles of the city on the Kentucky side of the border and 70 miles into Indiana due to the strength of Louisville’s fan base in those areas.
Geo-targeting refers to the ability for advertisers to place their marketing materials in a specific region or locale. In digital advertising specifically, geo-targeting is just one of many tweaks that an advertiser can make to ensure that its messages and ad campaigns reach a particular customer in a particular market. In addition to geo-targeting, online ads can be targeted by additional demographic information like age, gender, hobbies and so on.
Nur mit einer genauen Wettbewerbsanalyse lassen sich Marktpotenziale erkunden und erkennen. Zudem ergeben sich aus der Wettbewerbsanalyse wichtige Einsichten dazu, wie man besser ist als seine Konkurrenten und wie man sich strategisch richtig im Markt positioniert. Und Marketingaktionen wie Werbung, Promotion oder Preisnachlässe können so auf die Konkurrenten abgestimmt werden, dass sie ihren Zweck der Kundengewinnung erfüllen.
Another method is to track your competitors’ links. Content marketing is often done in unison with link building. Your competitors most likely create content on blogging sites. Within the articles they submit, there are external backlinks that point back to their own websites. Those links can be followed like a trail of breadcrumbs to track what they’ve been up to. Moz and Majestic are tools that are great for doing this. Here’s a look at what Moz found when I looked up Easel.ly, an infographics company.

Instead of immediately sponsoring a Search Engine Marketing (SEM) campaign for certain keywords, keep an eye on your competitors for the best moment to do it. An SEM campaign implies a daily expenditure that most companies can’t afford long-term, so they won’t keep it up for long. If you are determined to spend some money on it, don’t just go crazy and then measure your ROI. After 3 – 4 months of watching, you should know if it’s worth it for your business to spend money on search engine ads. For an advanced strategy, try to identify your competitors’ timing for purchasing search engine ads, and try to replace them when they are not actively sponsoring results.

Again, keyword strategy does not mean randomly sprinkling certain words throughout your website. In actuality, B2B marketing and SEO need a focused strategy to make a difference. The first step is identifying your optimization intent and tailoring it for B2B marketing and SEO.  Next, create a keyword theme with specified long tail keywords and research them. 
Geo-Targeting content is simple and beneficial to most websites, advertisers and publishers, as well anyone using PPC campaigns or SEO. Not only does it enable you to match the most relevant content to your visitor, Geo Targeting also serves as an excellent basis for experimenting with traffic to optimize your funnels. Some ideas were presented here that may be tested, but the options are virtually limitless.
Device targeting is important nowadays since most of the users are using mobile devices to browse the web. Use device targeting to reach your best customers on any device. With device targeting, you can customize your ads for different mobile devices and operating systems. This way you can target people who are online on mobile devices or using different operating systems.

Wenn Sie einfach nur wissen möchten, wo Sie mit Ihrer Internet-Präsenz in den Suchmaschinen (z.B. Google oder Bing) stehen oder was Sie machen sollten, um mehr organische Besucher zu erhalten, dann ist die SUMAGO® SEO Analyse eine gute Wahl. Wir schauen uns Ihre Website mit einem marketingorientierten SEO-Blick und mit Hilfe von spezialisierten SEO-Tools an. Wir sehen uns OnPage-Faktoren – wie die interne Verlinkung, Ladezeiten, die Erreichbarkeit für Crawler bzw. Fehler in der Seitenstruktur – für Sie an und dokumentieren diese in übersichtlichen Sheets. Darüber hinaus analysieren wie den Ist-Zustand ihrer OffPage-Optimierung (Domain-Popularität, Qualität der Backlinks etc.) und geben Hinweise zur Verbesserung Ihrer Sichtbarkeit bei Google.

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.
From my experience, you don’t need complex algorithms to save money with paid search. You don’t need a crazy PPC management tool to trim down costs for campaigns. You need only employ one of 3 core paid search strategies in order to succeed in your PPC campaigns: 1) Maximize your budget, 2) Improve Branding by showing up in a top position and 3) Maximize your profit potential.

Subtracting the COGS, FBA fees, and Miscellaneous from the Selling Price leaves $9 in profit per unit (27-4-11-3=9). So we can spend up to $9 to get a sale and still be profitable. To calculate our ACoS threshold for our break-even point, simply divide the net income from the Selling price, ie $9/$27=.33. This leaves us with a 33% ACoS threshold, meaning that we would be making money on any keyword that has a Cost of Sale at 33% or less.
Stellen Sie die Verhandlungsposition der Lieferanten in Ihrem Markt dar. In einigen Branchen sind Lieferanten stark an Ihre Abnehmer gebunden (z.B. vertraglich). Zeigen Sie in Ihrer Wettbewerbsanalyse auch auf, welche Schwierigkeiten sich für Ihr Unternehmen aufgrund einer starken Verhandlungsposition der Lieferanten ergeben könnten und wie Sie darauf reagieren würden (dieser Faktor kann auch für die Konkurrenzanalyse relevant sein).

The results that we’ve seen among early adopters of geo-targeted campaigns are encouraging, and as more people join the smartphone society, opportunities will increase for brands and retailers to target mobile-savvy consumers on the move with real-time, contextually relevant offers and promotions that can be instantly redeemed close by. We can only see the trend heading one way.

Welche Kriterien Sie für Ihre Wettbewerbsanalyse heranziehen möchten, hängt von Ihrer Branche und der Wettbewerbssituation ab. Beschränken Sie sich allerdings ausschließlich auf jene Merkmale, die für Sie relevant sind, sonst entsteht schließlich ein unüberblickbarer Datenwust, den Sie nur schwer auswerten können. Die folgende Tabelle zeigt Ihnen, welche Kriterien Sie erfassen könnten:
SEMrush isn't free, but it will give you the comprehensive data you need to make smart decisions about what keywords to target. It's also easy to use. Let's say your company wants to be the first name to show up when someone searches for "solar panel installation." Type that keyword into the Phrase Match tool within SEMrush, and you'll be able to see that term along with other related terms. 
Now that we know how much we can spend and still be profitable, let’s create some campaigns. It is frighteningly simple to create an advertising campaign on Amazon, which is good because you can launch before your morning coffee gets cold, however you want to make sure you follow certain steps so that you don’t have money leaking out of your account. Every penny counts towards your bottom line!
The second is mobile couponing, which is being driven forward by players like Groupon, LivingSocial and Amazon. By clicking on a mobile banner, consumers can redeem coupons in-store at point of sale. Advertisers can target their campaigns to appear on the devices of any consumer browsing a mobile site or app within a given distance of one of their outlets.

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?
Basically, when you set a bid, Amazon looks at your product and all other products relevant to the search and see who’s bidding what and how much budget they have. From there, the algorithm selects one of the products and puts it in a spot. If someone clicks on it, the amount bid is charged to your account. To know which keywords are converting, you’ll need to run a PPC report, which you can find on Seller Central > Reports > Advertising Reports. I recommend that you do one at least once per week while running ads.
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.
Im Idealfall kennst du den Markt und konkurrierende Unternehmen bereits sehr genau und kannst ihre jeweiligen Besonderheiten, Stärken und Schwächen aus dem Stegreif aufzählen. Dennoch ist es sinnvoll, dich bei deiner Untersuchung nicht nur auf Bauchgefühl, Instinkt, Erfahrung und Hörensagen zu verlassen, sondern nachvollziehbar und strategisch bei der Datensammlung vorzugehen. Dazu kannst du unter anderem diese Informationsquellen nutzen:
The personal intent targeting is nearly as strong as search, which is really saying something! The Q&A format of Quora lends itself to fairly specific intent (e.g., "What is a good program for learning data science online?"). That question is loaded with high-quality intent potential for my client, and anyone clicking on it likely wants to actually discover the answer.
Keyword Difficulty (KD). This is a cumulative score that shows you how difficult it will be to rank organically for this keyword. It accounts for the number of competitors within this space as well as the strength of those competitors. If one of your competitors is a government website that gets millions of visits each month, for instance, that will impact your difficulty score. Other factors that impact difficulty include the quality of content your competitors have and how relevant it is to the searcher.  As a best practice, look for keywords with a difficulty score that's no higher than 80.
Bonus Trick: Try typing in your basic keyword phrase, followed by every letter of the alphabet, and making a list of those phrases. If your product or service is specific to locations, try typing in those locations to see what kind of search volume exists. (Are alternative energy tax credits more commonly searched in Austin compared with Cleveland?)

Need some keyword strategy help while actually creating your posts? If you use WordPress to manage your site content, the Yoast SEO plugin analyzes each post and offers suggestions for improving page content as you prepare your post for publishing. While it’s not a silver bullet that will guarantee good results, it does offer helpful tips for improving your post once it’s in WordPress.


In more sophisticated use cases, geotargeting doesn’t have to be solely based on a consumer’s real-time location. Locations or businesses a customer has visited recently can be a great predictor of interests and intent, so adding targeting based on historical location as well can be key to delivering a captivating, relevant message. Denny’s had great success with this tactic in a campaign with xAd, detailed below.
Wird eine Marketingkampagne auf einem Alleinstellungsmerkmal aufgebaut, so wird hierdurch die Grundlage einer Identifikation des Kunden mit der Leistung geschaffen. Dem Marketing kommt somit die Aufgabe zu, das Alleinstellungsmerkmal des beworbenen Produktes zielgruppengerecht zu ermitteln und herauszustellen. Diese Vorgehensweise ist vor allem in den frühen Lebensphasen eines Produktes wirksam, so lange das herausragende Leistungsmerkmal noch nicht von der Konkurrenz aufgegriffen und in vergleichbarer Weise angeboten wird.
If not, you’ll need to determine how close to being profitable you are. If it would only take one or two more sales or leads to turn a profit, it’s time to start optimizing your PPC campaign so you can cross that threshold sooner rather than later. Start adjusting your landing page (perhaps with the help of A/B testing), your ad text, and your keyword strategy until you find a winning combination.

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.
Leider kann ein Unternehmen, dass seine Wettbewerber nicht kennt, schnell das Potential übersehen, dass der Markt und die Kunden dem eigenen Unternehmen bieten. Eine der umfangreichsten und besten Möglichkeiten die Wettbewerber und die Branche zu bewerten ist eine Wettbewerbsanalyse die in regelmäßigen Abständen durchgeführt wird und umfangreiche Informationen und Grundlagen für die eigene strategische Planung liefert. Hauptziel einer Wettbewerbsanalyse ist es, die Stärken und Schwächen der Wettbewerber zu recherchieren, einzuschätzen und Kenntnisse über deren Strategie, Marktdurchdringung, Kundenbindung etc. zu gewinnen.
Sometimes taking a step back to think about your audience and goals can give you a new perspective. I once worked on a campaign for a theme park. We initially identified the target audience as moms living in specific states. We determined she worked full-time, so was usually online during the workday or late at night. Life was chaotic for her, so she wanted simplicity and ease.  We wanted mom to request a visitor’s kit for the park, so this was our X number of conversions goal. However, what the client really wanted was for the whole family to actually visit. After some research it became apparent that our immediate audience might be mom because she was online, but who we really needed to get excited were the kids. We designed a landing page that had a few bullets of information that mom could read quickly, but we also mentioned the cool items that would be in the visitor’s kit just for her kids. While mom was the one filling out the form, the kids were major influencers so it was important to get the kids excited too.  What was sent in the visitor’s kit was important but so was the landing page. Mom was looking at the landing page from the perspective of her kids – we needed to consider the photos and colors to make the page feel like a fun place to be. She wanted to know that it would be a place her kids would enjoy and be excited about. We needed to find a balance that would appeal to mom, encouraging her to request a visitor’s kit, while giving her the impression her kids would enjoy the experience.  By taking this new perspective, we were able to develop ad text, landing pages and a visitor’s kit that allowed us to target our entire audience rather than the single audience the analytics data pointed to.

Working on common practice tasks such as negative matching, keyword expansion and more are the right things to do for an account, and there’s a proper place and time to do them. Without a policy governing how to manage our PPC accounts, we’re “stringing tactics together,” which creates misalignment between volume of work done versus meaningful work that’s impacting results positively.
Für den Sichtbarkeitsindex (SISTRIX) werden für ein großes Set an gebräuchlichen Keywords für ein Land die Top-100-Positionen analysiert. Anschließend wird auch hier nach Suchvolumen und Position gewichtet. So zahlt eine schlechte Position auf einem vielgesuchten Keyword stärker auf den Index ein als eine gute Position auf einem wenig gesuchten Keyword. Hier findest du, wie Sistrix seine eigene Sichtbarkeit definiert und wie du diese im Detail interpretierst.
