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?
All sorts of companies in all sorts of industries can make use of geo-targeting.  By refining the ad copy to include the city name and a reference to the current weather – for example, including the words “start sleeping cooler” in an ad during periods of hot weather – Purple Mattress, an ecommerce bedding brand has been able to generate higher click-through rates by online shoppers. In an effort to update its aging "Let's Go Places" campaign,  Toyota incorporated city-specific information into each of its Google ads, encouraging consumers to go to places and attractions near them.  Whole Foods targeted ads to the smartphones of consumers visiting nearby supermarkets, encouraging them to come to a nearby Whole Foods nearby exchange for better deals.

Um uns der eigenen Wettbewerbsfähigkeit zuverlässig bewusst zu werden, müssen wir natürlich auch wissen, was die Konkurrenz in Zukunft vorhat.
As with any Split or Multivariate testing, modification of the visual elements can make a big difference. Similarly, testing different design elements based on the visitor’s location may enlighten about the funnel you’re testing. The way bright colors are interpreted by one culture on side of the planet may be vastly different to another. Think of holiday themes as an example, or national flags as another.
I don’t quite understand the use of negative keywords with manual campaigns as you stated, however, I read another article of yours and it stated to do both Manual and Auto campaigns for the same product, tale keywords from the manual campaign and input them as “negative keywords” in the auto campaigns as a strategy to not compete against your own keywords….is this still accurate? I look forward to these posts to build up my knowledge and best practices for PPC on Amazon. Thanks so much
Add in geolocation, and you get geotargeting, a technique that has proved highly beneficial to local small businesses, especially restaurants, retail shops, and service providers. While that’s great, what happens if you’re a large corporation running national campaigns? As a CMO, you can still use geotargeting to increase the return on your marketing investments.
Before we can create our campaign we must clearly understand our target audience. This will help develop the campaign structure and inform the way you create the campaign. The key to successful advertising is truly understanding the wants and needs of your customers. To understand our audience we can ask Who? What? Where? When? Why? This chapter discusses how to understand your audience and build a campaign around their wants and needs.
…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:

As an example, if you sell sports equipment or apparel, you could run two or more different “winter sales” suited to the context of winter in different locations. Your ‘classic’ winter sale would appear in states like Colorado—and could feature an offer for 15% off ski gear, whereas your ‘Californian winter sale’ could showcase 15% off hiking gear.

"We've been experimenting with Quora Ads in a few client accounts and have been intrigued by the (limited) results thus far. One of our clients, Dataquest, is an online platform for learning data science. Their marketing director approached us about Quora Ads a few months ago, and we decided to give it a shot. To be fair, we are still in the middle of the trial run, so the traffic is fairly low, but what we have seen come through is enough to get us excited about it as a new channel. 
Dazu gehört auch die SWOT-Analyse, die Stärken und Schwächen des eigenen Unternehmens mit Chancen und Risiken aus der Unternehmensumwelt in Beziehung setzt und daraus Strategien ableitet. Diese Methode erfordert die systematische Untersuchung von Unternehmen und Umwelt. Die Ergebnisse der Wettbewerbsanalyse gehören in diesem Zusammenhang neben gesamtwirtschaftlichen, politischen und gesellschaftlichen Faktoren zur Umwelt- und Marktanalyse.
PPC develops over time, because historical data feeds all future PPC marketing strategy decisions. On a going-forward basis, you must review campaign performance to know which campaigns, ad groups, ads, and keywords to pause; which keywords should be grouped into more tightly defined ad groups; and which existing campaigns, ad groups, ads, and keywords need to be tested and/or modified for improvement.

In Keyword Planner, formerly known as the Keyword Tool, you can get search volume and traffic estimates for keywords you're considering. Unfortunately, when Google transitioned from Keyword Tool to Keyword Planner, they stripped out a lot of the more interesting functionality. But you can make up for it a bit if you take the information you learn from Keyword Planner and use Google Trends to fill in some blanks.
Diese Form des Wettbewerbs hat die größte Bedeutung für die Attraktivität der Branche. Herrscht ein intensiver Konkurrenzkampf, ist ein Neueinstieg wenig erfolgversprechend. Befindet sich Ihr Unternehmen bereits in einem solchen Markt, sind neue Strategien gefragt. Bestimmte Merkmale weisen auf einen starken Konkurrenzdruck im Markt oder auf eine Entwicklung in diese Richtung hin:

Choosing landing pages for your keywords is an important element of your keyword strategy, and can be critical for both your SEO and your user experience. Look at it this way: When you click through to a site that really isn’t relevant to your search, what do you do? You most likely leave that page after a few seconds and likely won’t consider it in the future. So having poorly optimized landing pages can cost you sales. But they’ll also damage your SEO efforts, making it hard to rank.
It’s worth mentioning that some of these terms are still evolving, and their use is still being defined. For example, geo-targeting is often used synonymously with location targeting, for now, but that could change. Terms and meaning might shift over time as the technology and its uses evolve. But, like geo-targeting, we’ve got you covered right here, right now.
"Modern SEO focuses on using the variations of the word or phrase that work naturally within the content because users will have a better experience, and search engines are capable of rewarding rankings to sites regardless of the variation of that keyword used. In other words, when a shopper searches for 'books,' the pages that best serve that user’s search query will, in theory, be ranked highest regardless of whether the content reflects the word 'book' or 'books.'"
Thanks for a great read. The holy grail of marketing is the ability to link advertising directly to consumer purchases. Increasingly, geo-targeted campaigns are making this dream a reality. Geotargeting doesn’t have to mean getting down to the local level. Larger companies can use geotargeting on a regional basis to locate specific audiences for their marketing campaigns. Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, etc., are all offering these services.
What’s the difference between your brand and your keywords? Are you using both effectively? Your brand is one of your most important keywords, but it shouldn’t be your only keyword, nor should you have lots of keywords but no brand. There should be a keyword strategy behind the keywords you pick. This post highlights the why of that and explains the basis of the how, then points you to several useful posts for the how.

Auf diese Weise hat die junge Anwältin mit relativ wenig Aufwand herausgefunden, wie sie sich gegenüber den Platzhirschen ihrer Branche am Markt behaupten kann. Sie hat in die Tat umgesetzt, was in Fachbüchern mit Begriffen wie SWOT-Analyse oder Stärken-Schwächen-Analyse beschrieben wird. Was so klingt, als bräuchte man dafür eine wissenschaftliche Ausbildung und mehrere Monate Zeit, lässt sich also ganz einfach auf ein Normalmaß herunterbrechen, das sich in angemessener Zeit bearbeiten lässt. Das Ergebnis ihrer Analyse kannst du übrigens in ihrem Businessplan nachlesen.
Conduct a thorough account audit and gap analysis. Audits are time-consuming and tedious, but they’re absolutely necessary. I use the account audit to understand underlying drivers of performance and to determine whether work being done in the account is in alignment with business goals. Uncovering the strengths, weaknesses and opportunities provides critical information I need to form my guiding principle for account management.

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.
4. Choose keywords based on more than just high search traffic. Depending on which strategy you’re using, branding or conversion, you should not fall into the trap of just looking at search volume when judging which keywords to use. Just because one keyword has a whole lot more searches than another doesn’t necessarily mean it will be a better performing search term. Take the time to analyze other factors that provide more granularity. Here is an example of other factors you may want to look at:
That said, if you’ve never had to come up with a keyword strategy before, it might seem a bit daunting to generate a list of terms that will drive qualified search traffic to your website. Not to worry. Creating an effective keyword strategy—figuring out which terms you should create content for—isn’t hard. It just involves a little bit of reverse engineering and some research.

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.”
Im Rahmen einer Wettbewerbsanalyse beschäftigen Sie sich intensiv mit Ihren Konkurrenten und der Wettbewerbssituation. Indem Sie eine Konkurrenzanalyse erstellen, gewinnen Sie Einblicke in Zusammenhänge, mit denen Sie das Verhalten Ihrer Wettbewerber und die Auswirkungen auf den Markt besser abschätzen können. Daran richten Sie Ihre eigenen Strategien aus.
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, or 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.

Deine Konkurrenten sind ein zentraler Bestandteil deiner Analyse. Deine Aufgabe besteht darin herauszufinden, wer die anderen Marktteilnehmer sind, wer den Markt dominiert, welche Wettbewerber welche Nische besetzen und so weiter. Finde im Rahmen der Konkurrenzanalyse Informationen zur Rivalität unter den Marktteilnehmern und untersuche, mit welchen Instrumenten andere Unternehmen sich besonders gut positionieren.

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.
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. 
This can mean simply using pictures from the surrounding area or structuring the landing page around a theme that is relevant. A great example of this is Grubhub. If you access their site from Boston, you get completely different suggestions and images than you do if you access it from San Francisco. Not only does this engage the user on a personal level, it also draws them in to the page, keeping them clicking for longer.

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.

In the print days, taking out an ad in the Detroit Free Press allowed businesses to know that primarily Detroit area residents who could actually visit the business would see the ad in question. Not so in the era of mobile ads which, if delivered indiscriminately and without location context, can be less successful because they aren’t relevant or personal. Ad creative targeted at — and customized for — an Oklahoma consumer versus a New York City one is likely to be more effective in driving a physical sale.
