Once your campaign is established you must review the analytics data and look for ways to optimise the campaign. Setting clear goals and measurements are absolutely critical to allow the campaign to be reviewed against each stated goal, in which you will consider ad performance, keyword performance, ad placement performance, campaign structure, and campaign targeting. This chapter highlights how to analyse and optimise your PPC campaign for success.
Google's AdWords Keyword Planner tool is another common starting point for SEO keyword research. It not only suggests keywords and provides estimated search volume, but also predicts the cost of running paid campaigns for these terms. To determine volume for a particular keyword, be sure to set the Match Type to [Exact] and look under Local Monthly Searches. Remember that these represent total searches. Depending on your ranking and click-through rate, the actual number of visitors you achieve for these keywords will usually be much lower.

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.
When it comes to advertising on Google Ads, consider the real estate adage: "Location, location, location!" Regardless of how great your ad is, it probably won't perform as well if it doesn't appear in the right places. Reach your customers where they are and where your business can serve them by using Google Ads location targeting. You can set and then adjust your location targeting settings at any time.
In summary, these are but a few of the examples of how geography plays such an important part in creating customized and targeted marketing campaigns. Consumers respond better to relevant marketing which means that ROI of targeted campaigns will increase. Mobile consumers make geography one of the best ways to target while technology and data make doing so a real advantage to those who use it. Sometimes it takes a little creativity, but it is worth the effort. Especially for the business of local.

Besonders schätzen wir seine verständlichen Erklärungen, in dieser sehr stark technisch geprägten Materie der Suchmaschinenoptimierung.
At what point should you stop paying for clicks and simply depend on free organic traffic? I know making the investment and maybe even giving up a profit initially is important. But, on one hand, I’m afraid that if I stop paying for ads my ranking will drop, and on the other, if I keep paying the amount I’m paying I may never make a real profit. Is there a magic time frame or metric that can be used to gauge when you can stop pumping money into clicks and start enjoying your margins?
It's not always about getting visitors to your site, but about getting the right kind of visitors. The usefulness of this intelligence cannot be overstated; with keyword research you can predict shifts in demand, respond to changing market conditions, and produce the products, services, and content that web searchers are actively seeking. In the history of marketing, there has never been such a low barrier to entry in understanding the motivations of consumers in virtually any niche.
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?)
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.  ‎

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.
Information about Market Qualified Leads (i.e. inquiries that progress to sales discussions), and the revenue attributed to closing those leads, completely transformed the story our numbers were telling. Looking at the first two months of 2016 vs 2017, we saw a significant increase in spend, yet a decrease in conversion volume and increased CPA. It was not until considering the Qualification Rate of inquiries (conversions) to MQL that we began to understand what was really happening.

The use of semantic search has completely changed the way we perform modern search queries today. A decade ago, people stuck with what was short and simple. If they wanted to find the best pizza places in New York City, they would type in “Pizza New York.” However, with Google’s Hummingbird update and the algorithmic improvements to semantic searches, people now are more inclined to type in “Where is the best pizza place in New York City.”

Geotargeting in geomarketing and internet marketing is the method of determining the geolocation of a website visitor and delivering different content to that visitor based on their location. This includes country, region/state, city, metro code/zip code, organization, IP address, ISP or other criteria.[1] A common usage of geo targeting is found in online advertising, as well as internet television with sites such as iPlayer and Hulu. In these circumstances, content is often restricted to users geolocated in specific countries; this approach serves as a means of implementing digital rights management. Use of proxy servers and virtual private networks may give a false location.[2]
Probieren Sie allgemein gehaltene Keywords aus, um herauszufinden, womit Sie die besten Ergebnisse erzielen. Auch allgemeine Keywords sollten immer möglichst relevant für Ihre Anzeigen und Ihre Website sein. Vermeiden Sie jedoch identische Keywords in Ihrem Konto, da von Google immer nur eine Anzeige pro Werbetreibendem und Keyword ausgeliefert wird.

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.

It can be easy to go down a deep rabbit hole with this process. There are thousands of blog posts with helpful hints (you’re reading one right now), and hundreds of tools that can potentially improve or otherwise streamline the process of researching keywords and devising a smart keyword strategy. That’s why we advise you keep things simple for starters. You can always layer on complexity as you gain experience. More than anything, good SEO efforts revolve around creating content experiments, measuring them, then doing more of what works and less of what doesn’t. Simpler is often better, especially if you are resource constrained. A good content governance strategy should dictate that you take on only as much as your resources allow.

Geofencing hinges on the use of a “fence”—a designated area that a marketer sets. Where geo-targeting allows you to get more granular and include or exclude certain users in the target area (based on demographic, for instance), geofencing is a bit more of a blunt object in that you’ll capture all users who move into a certain area. The purpose of creating a geofence is to target communications in a given zone, in a given context—just like geo-targeting, but with greater accuracy. Retail operators who want to catch the attention of shoppers as they pass by a store, for example, might use geofencing.
Ausgangspunkt einer jeden Optimierung auf einer Webseite ist die Festlegung einer Keyword-Strategie sowie die dafür notwendige Recherche nach den zum eigenen Angebot passenden Keywords. Bei einem Keyword (auch Suchbegriff genannt) handelt es sich um eine Texteinheit aus einem oder mehreren Wörtern, Zahlen oder Zeichen. Letztlich sind Keywords diejenigen Wörter, auf die eine Seite einer Internetseite entsprechend gute Rankings erzielen sollte. Es sind also die Suchwörter, nach denen potenzielle Kunden suchen, wenn sie auf eine Internetseite gelangen sollen.

Think back to elementary school when you learned about the key questions – who, what, when, where, why and how. Use these basic questions to identify who you are really talking to. Who is that ideal person? When are they online and how do they use the web? How old is your ideal visitor, where do they live, what is their mindset, what are their values and how do they feel about your company or product now? Analytics data can offer some insights into the people you are attracting now, but that may not be who you ultimately want. You will need to do some digging to define  your true audience as well as their mindset and behaviors. Sometimes in PPC we become consumed within our tightly defined conversion funnels that we forget there are real people on the other end of a click.  Remember that gathering consumer insights, not just what we see by tracking consumer website usage, can create well-rounded, more successful PPC campaigns.

Instead, SEO now takes a multi-faceted approach where you’re involving different disciplines (i.e. content, email, advertising, social), building a brand (i.e. investing in intangibles, not just conversions), and competing on multiple fronts (i.e. paid search positions, review & aggregation sites like Yelp, TripAdvisor, beefing up your local listings, and more) – all at the same time.

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.
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.
Should l raise my manual exact ad to $3bid and raise my budget to $200 to make sure it is enough through the day and run for 10-14 days to be shown on page 1 first sponsored ad spot? Or should l add more main keywords which converts and try to raise them all together at the same time? This strategy looks like l will collect more sales, but it also scatters my sales through different keywords and my organic listing will go up slower but for more keywords.
Some very general words such as “marketing” or “business” are very competitive, making it harder to rank well for them in search engine results. If you are a small- or medium-sized business, you probably want to choose less competitive keywords, more specifically related to your business (these are commonly referred to as long tail keywords). The greater the volume of searches on a keyword, the more competitive it is. There are a number of different tools you can use to determine thecompetitiveness of a specific keyword as well as suggest and help you brainstorm new keyword ideas.
When it comes to advertising on Google Ads, consider the real estate adage: "Location, location, location!" Regardless of how great your ad is, it probably won't perform as well if it doesn't appear in the right places. Reach your customers where they are and where your business can serve them by using Google Ads location targeting. You can set and then adjust your location targeting settings at any time.

Your keyword strategy should make clear which “keyword groups” you focus on. It doesn’t have to be a long list of keywords (though it doesn’t hurt to have one). Your keyword strategy should be a definition of a group of keywords that you’re tackling. Every time you’re writing new content you can have a quick look at those groups and pick a new keyword that falls in line with the strategy.


Ein großer Vorteil der digitalen Marktforschung sind die großen Mengen an Daten, die auf einmal gesammelt werden können. Zu Beginn einer Befragung werden demographische Informationen wie Alter, Geschlecht, Wohnort oder Bildungsstand der Umfrageteilnehmer erhoben und gemeinsam mit den Ergebnissen abgespeichert.  Auf diesem Wege können nach der Befragung interessante Insights gewonnen werden, die man vorher vielleicht nicht unbedingt erwartet hätte.
Everyone knows intent behind the search matters. In e-commerce, intent is somewhat easy to see. B2B or, better yet, healthcare, isn't quite as easy. Matching persona intent to keywords requires a bit more thought. In this video, we'll cover how to find intent modifiers during keyword research, how to organize those modifiers into the search funnel, and how to quickly find unique universal results at different levels of the search funnel to utilize.
Damit hat sie automatisch alles richtig gemacht. Das Ziel einer Wettbewerbsuntersuchung ist es nämlich nicht, den Bankberater davon zu überzeugen, wie rosig die Erfolgsaussichten des eigenen Unternehmens sein werden, sondern sich selbst – in Abgrenzung zu den bestehenden Angeboten – am Markt zu positionieren. Im Unterschied zur Marktanalyse, die viel zahlenlastiger ist und in der es darum geht, wie groß der Zielmarkt ist, wie er sich entwickelt, wie viel Umsatz gemacht wird und wie viele Unternehmen es gibt, beschreibt die Wettbewerbsanalyse, wie diese Unternehmen agieren. Welche strategischen Ziele verfolgen sie? Wie treten sie auf?

Beim Gedanken an mögliche Wettbewerber kommen Ihnen wahrscheinlich zuerst die am Markt agierenden Unternehmen in den Sinn. Es gibt jedoch auch Konkurrenten, an die Sie im ersten Moment nicht gedacht haben. Michael E. Porter hat diese Wettbewerber in dem von ihm entwickelten Modell der Branchenstrukturanalyse beschrieben. Man kennt diesen Ansatz auch unter der Bezeichnung Fünf-Kräfte-Modell, da er von fünf Formen des Wettbewerbs ausgeht:

I nostri esperti hanno la possibilità di apportare modifiche e controllare i prezzi giornalmente in modo da far posizionare meglio il vostro annuncio.

Starting small will also help you devise a repeatable process that can then be applied across a wider range of search terms as your list grows over time. If you really want to go pro, keyword management tools like Moz Keyword Explorer or SEM Rush’s Keyword Magic Tool can help you streamline this entire process and will allow you to create lists that include hundreds of keywords. 
Michiel wrote about Homepage SEO, telling people not to try and rank their homepage for a specific keyword. In the comments there were clearly some misconceptions about how branding relates to your keyword strategy. We’ve been writing a lot about keyword research lately but we’ve not talked about keyword strategy much, so this post elaborates on what these are and how they connect to each other.
You should always track and monitor the effectiveness of your PPC campaign. You should know what things are working for you in a better way. If you are publishing your ads on the Google search platform using the Google Adwords tool, use Google Analytics to get better insights into searcher’s behavior. You should measure the bounce rate of your website. Bounce rate will tell you how many searchers visited your site but did not perform any action. You should also track CTR and conversion rate of your campaign. This will help you to optimize your PPC campaign and your landing page.
Keyword competitiveness lets you know which keywords often show up on other websites. This usually means that your keyword strategy concept exists on other sites. For B2B marketing and SEO, keyword competitiveness is a little different. Since keywords and themes are more specific, there’s a lower chance of other sites using the same keywords. Of course, remember that most B2B companies write about similar issues and concepts.
With the constant stream of new betas, introduction of format changes (hello Expanded Text Ads!) and a multitude of new targeting methods such as tablet bid modifiers and demographic bidding for search, paid search marketing continues to become more and more complex. Gone are the days when running ad copy tests, adding negative keywords, performing bid adjustments, and launching more targeted ad groups was sufficient to drive account growth. Today’s paid search advertiser must choose from hundreds of available account optimization strategies.
Eine Wettbewerbsanalyse kann auch mit einfachen Mitteln kostengünstig intern oder extern aufbereitet werden und liefert umfangreiche Informationen zu den Unternehmen, die in der eigenen oder vergleichbaren Branchen tätig sind. Die Konkurrenzanalyse kann dabei helfen, eigene Stärken und Schwächen besser einzuschätzen (SWOT-Analyse), strategische Entscheidungen zu treffen oder die eigene Marketing- und Vertriebsstrategie zu überdenken.
Probieren Sie allgemein gehaltene Keywords aus, um herauszufinden, womit Sie die besten Ergebnisse erzielen. Auch allgemeine Keywords sollten immer möglichst relevant für Ihre Anzeigen und Ihre Website sein. Vermeiden Sie jedoch identische Keywords in Ihrem Konto, da von Google immer nur eine Anzeige pro Werbetreibendem und Keyword ausgeliefert wird.
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.
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.
Schlussendlich sollte eine Konkurrenzanalyse auch Auskunft darüber geben, wo Ihre Wettbewerber Stärken und Schwächen aufweisen. Stärken können dabei unüberwindbare Markteintrittsbarrieren bedeuten, wohingegen Sie Schwächen Ihrer Mitbewerber ausnutzen können. Beschreiben Sie in Ihrer Konkurrenzanalyse jeweils die Wettbewerbsvorteile und die Alleinstellungsmerkmale (bzw. der besondere Kundennutzen) der 3-5 größten direkten Wettbewerber.
