Once you have collected a good amount of data, it’s time to sift through it and see what’s working, what’s not, and sharpen up your money-making machine. Like I mentioned, Amazon’s advertising platform is very straightforward and simple. This means that the levers you can pull for optimization are more limited than what Facebook Ads, Google AdWords, Bing Ads offers.
As I consult and train people on Internet marketing, I typically ask whether keyword research is a strategic function or a tactical one. Often people think it’s tactical because of the tedious nature of the work. I submit it is not only strategic but also foundational to all marketing channels you will use. If you take the time up front to outline a killer keyword strategy, you will find your campaigns will be higher performing and more successful. In this column, I will outline seven tips for developing a killer keyword strategy you can use to take your campaigns to a higher level.
Take Coca Cola and Red Bull for example. They have massive marketing budgets, and the majority of that budget goes into branding and (I am guessing) very little attention is paid to determining the ROI of each individual activity they sponsor. They just know that the more they can build equity in their brand, the more products they will sell. The result? They are some of the most recognizable brands in the world. They are also extremely profitable at the end of the year – they just achieve that profitability differently than what we are used to seeing as direct response marketers.
To give you an extra boost, we’re also giving away two landing-page templates designed especially for PPC campaigns. These templates have powered hundreds of successful PPC campaigns, and with a little customization (some coding’s required if you’re not a LeadPages® customer), they can do the same for you. Click below to download them now, and we’ll talk about why they work and how to use them in a bit:
When running manual campaigns, there’s a few tricks you can use to get the most out of them. One tactic I like to use is to set up adgroups for the same group of keywords for each match type. So I would create three adgroups with the same keywords each with a different match type. Then over time, I can see which keywords perform best using which match types, and optimize accordingly.

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.

Beacons aren’t designed to know you’re you, where you were a moment ago, or where you’re going next. By and large, they’re just little stationary computers that react: when your device moves near the beacon itself, it triggers a ping, and your app—if you have an app with notifications enabled for the beacon’s particular location—goes to work communicating with you. When you move out of that beacon’s range, it’s basically a done deal.
IP delivery for search engine optimization (SEO) is the method of delivering different content to search engine spiders (also known as robots and crawlers) than to human visitors. The determination if the visitor is a known search engine spider is done based on the IP address. SEOs compare the visitor's IP address with their list of IP addresses, which are known to be servers that are owned by a search engine and used to run their crawler applications (spiders). The delivery of different content to search engine spiders than to human visitors is called cloaking and is against most search engines' webmaster guidelines.[8][9][10]
Competitive analysis. Sometimes, a stakeholder identifies the competition in the PPC space incorrectly. Competitive analysis helps me learn who the competition actually is and what they are doing to be successful in terms of bidding, keyword targeting and creative messaging. The competitive analysis helps me determine how aggressive I need to be in my account management policies in order to successfully compete in the marketplace.
SpyFu displays side-by-side data on your competitors' paid and organic search results, so you can easily see where it's more cost-effective to bid on a particular keyword as opposed to trying to rank for  it organically. That way you can use your time more efficiently by writing content around those keywords that drive a lot of traffic but are more expensive to bid on.

There are a variety of benefits to incorporating ad customizers into your PPC ads, such as the ability to create a sense of urgency in your target audience and drive clicks. But the biggest boost that ad customizers can provide is that they improve the relevance of your ads, thus improving your quality score. You can also adjust such ad elements as color, size, inventory and stock details, pricing, and seasonal sales to capture the eyes of potential customers.
Wichtiger Bestandteil der Wettbewerbsanalyse ist die Konkurrenzanalyse. Bei der Konkurrenzanalyse sammeln Sie in einem ersten Schritt Informationen zu Ihren Konkurrenten, die Sie dann aufbereiten und auswerten sollten. Die Ergebnisse Ihrer Konkurrenzanalyse (z.B. Wettbewerbsvorteile der einzelnen Wettbewerber etc.) sind dann insbesondere für die Unternehmensstrategie relevant.

Informational: These keywords represent the very beginning of the conversion process, and are not very likely to convert on the first visit. If you’re running a branding campaign you’ll want to be sure to include informational keywords on your list. If you’ve got a conversion goal, you still can’t afford to ignore these keywords as they make up the majority of searches. Informational keywords often use words/phrases like "how to", “do I need” and “where to find”. Consider these leads to be converted later via your website or a retargeting campaign.
Once you have a short list of keywords, create separate pieces of valuable, high-quality content, each optimized for an individual term on the list. Through the process outlined above, you aligned keywords with searcher intent. You ostensibly know what searchers commonly put into search engines to find content related to your business goals. Now, your content should actually meet those searchers’ needs. In fact, it should be your goal to create the best, most actionable content to answer a specific question a target user might have as possible.
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.
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.
To do this, you want to analyze your analytics frequently by keyword and observe visitors’ behavior when they come to your website or landing page. Don’t fixate on just traffic alone. How much time are they spending on your site? What is the average number of pages they are viewing? What is the bounce rate? A high bounce rate like 80 percent will tell you that most of your visitors leave your site immediately upon landing on your site. They’re not engaged and see no content clues they arrived at their desired destination. This can be fixed by making changes to your landing pages as long as they are relevant to the keywords that brought them there.

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 you want to see what people are talking about at any given moment, there's no better way than to check in with your social media channels. Most of us already do this throughout the day, but if you haven't tapped into your channels for keyword research, you're missing out on valuable insights. Here are just a few things you can uncover by typing a word or phrase into the Facebook search bar:
E' importante tenere presente che, anche la concorrenza impiega strategie PPC per la loro pubblicità su internet, quindi posizionarsi nelle prime posizioni non è mai un compito facile. Con i nostri servizi di Ottimizzazione PPC , potete aumentare e solidificare il CTR e le conversioni delle vostre Campagne PPC, in modo da essere sempre un passo avanti rispetto alla concorrenza.
Informationen über die Konkurrenz können gesammelt werden, indem deren Werbung, Werbematerialien, Lieferanten, Kunden, Mitarbeiter und das Kundenfeedback untersucht werden. SEO-Analysen werden oft für die Webanalyse der Wettbewerber benutzt: Indem man gewisse Schlagwörter verwendet, kann man sehen, wie gut die Firma im Internet bewertet wird. Umso besser die Bewertung einer Website und je höher die Besucheranzahl der Seite, desto mehr potenzielle Kunden werden als offizielle Kunden gewonnen. SEO-Optimierung kann z. B. Wettbewerbsstärke, Beliebtheit gewisser Themen oder primäre bzw. sekundäre Schlagwörter bestimmen. Des Weiteren können dabei auch Websites aufgelistet werden, welche aktiv an der Verbesserung der Position arbeiten, und abschätzen, wie erfolgreich die Verbesserungsversuche sind. Diese Strategie wird von Unternehmen genutzt, um Mittbewerber hinter sich zu lassen.
Here’s where artifacts like user personas may come in handy. A persona should clearly outline what potential customers want and how they plan to get it. It’s your job to map their needs to content you create, using the list of keywords as a guideline for topics. That said, since they’re based on assumptions and not real user input, personas shouldn’t be a replacement for user research and testing. If your buying cycle is long and complicated, a customer journey mapping exercise could also help you identify wants and needs during individual steps of the cycle. Software service Autopilot HQ has a great post about how to map content to customer needs throughout their journey. 
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.
Identifikation der aktuellen Strategie: Es wird eine Analyse der Strategie angefertigt, die von den betrachteten Konkurrenten aktuell umgesetzt wird. Solange keine zwingenden Gründe vorliegen, die aktuelle Strategie zu ändern, ist es vernünftig anzunehmen, dass ein Unternehmen die aktuelle Strategie beibehält. Daraus ergibt sich eine deutliche Betonung der realisierten Strategie (im Gegensatz zu strategischen Plänen).
The Java program is fairly intuitive, with easy-to-navigate tabs. Additionally, you can export any or all of the data into Excel for further analysis. So say you're using Optify, Moz, or RavenSEO to monitor your links or rankings for specific keywords -- you could simply create a .csv file from your spreadsheet, make a few adjustments for the proper formatting, and upload it to those tools.
