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).
It is dependent on the pre-analysis of the entire IP address space. There are more than 4 billion possible IP addresses, and detailed analysis of each of them is a Herculean task, especially in light of the fact that IP addresses are constantly being assigned, allocated, reallocated, moved and changed due to routers being moved,[6] enterprises being assigned IP addresses or moving, and networks being built or changed. In order to keep up with these changes, complex algorithms, bandwidth measurement and mapping technology, and finely tuned delivery mechanisms are necessary.[7] Once all of the IP space is analyzed, each address must be periodically updated to reflect changes in the IP address information, without invading a user's privacy. This process is similar in scale to the task of Web spidering.
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 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.
Many marketers experience this issue during PPC campaigns: They’re attracting the attention of their audience and driving traffic with their ads, yes—but those website and landing page visits aren’t resulting in the amount of conversions they would have expected. If you are also experiencing this, your ads may be targeting consumers who aren’t quite in the decision stage of their buyer’s journey through the use of too many top-of-the-funnel (TOFU) keywords in your ad copy.
SEO (Search Engine Optimization) oder Suchmaschinenoptimierung soll Inhalte, die durch Suchmaschinen indexierbar sind, bei der Suche nach inhaltlich relevanten Suchbegriffen (Keywords) auf möglichst hohen Positionen erscheinen lassen. Dabei kommt es nicht nur auf die Position an sich an, sondern auch auf die die Übereinstimmung zwischen Suchbegriff, Suchergebnisdarstellung und Relevanz, mit dem Ziel das der Nutzer effizient seine Aufgabe (Taskcompletion) auf der Webseite lösen kann.
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. 
Update aus dem Mai 2018: Inzwischen hat Google die Erweiterung der Descriptions auf 300 Zeichen wieder zurückgenommen und ist laut eigenen Aussagen auf eine Länge zurückgegangen, die etwas länger ist als früher. Also ca. 160 Zeichen, aber am Enda hat Google hier noch eine Vorbehalt, der heisst ggf verändern wir auch die Länge, solange es für den Nutzer sinnvoll ist.
YouTube’s search results give you even more control over what a potential viewer sees because you have a thumbnail displayed next to your search result. It’s a great opportunity to provide extra information about the video and what viewers can expect, so optimizing your thumbnails can help you increase both your click-through rate and your watch time.
A great way to make your website mobile friendly is to implement AMP for your site. Previously it was mainly used by publishers; today it is also a platform for e-commerce and advertising. Since autumn 2017, advertisers can implement AMP for their Google Ads landing pages, making them faster. Building AMP pages for your advertising campaigns can have a positive impact on conversion rates, time on page, bounce rates, and more.
There is no “right number” of keywords to include, however I like to include 100 or more in my manual campaigns and then the Automatic targeting campaign. Amazon search is often about the long-tail keywords that may be 4 words or more, and it is hard to identify those keywords if you start with too small of a sample set. You can always trim down your keyword list after a week of running Automatic campaigns, and then you will see your ACoS improve and your ROI increase nicely.

Geotargeting is the practice of delivering content to a consumer — via mobile or web — using geographic location information about that individual. At a basic level, a business can restrict its reach to consumers only located in a defined geographic area such as a state or a city. But location often provides much deeper, more meaningful and identifiable traits that tell you what a person wants, needs or is interested in.
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.
Con il termine Pay Per Click si fa riferimento agli annunci che compaiono in alto e di fianco ai risultati organici dei motori di ricerca in una pagina dei risultati (SERP). Il costo per questa pubblicità su Internet si basa su due cose: il Costo per il Clic (CPC) e le parole chiave. Il CPC è determinato dal costo delle singole parole chiave, che fanno parte di un ampio sistema di offerta. Alcune parole chiave sono più costose rispetto ad altre, ed è per questo che la ricerca delle parole chiave è fondamentale per avviare questi tipo di pubblicità su internet.

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.
Daneben gibt es noch eine weitere Art der Konkurrenz durch Lieferanten. Wenn diese plötzlich ihre eigenen Materialien oder Halbfertigerzeugnisse zu den Produkten verarbeiten, die Ihr Unternehmen herstellt, werden sie zur direkten Konkurrenz. Der gleiche Effekt tritt ein, wenn Sie ein Handelsunternehmen führen und ein Hersteller Ihrer Waren vertreibt diese selbst. Informieren Sie sich deshalb auch über Ihre Lieferanten, wenn Sie eine Konkurrenzanalyse erstellen.
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.

For example, say you have a clinic in Des Moines, Iowa. Someone looking at your social media advertising in California isn’t likely to come to your clinic. A geotargeted campaign would help you find social media users that need your clinic and live in your area. And if you have multiple locations, you can run geotargeted social media ads in each area where you want to increase your customer base.
As you can see, we not only changed which keywords to track (the core of the SERPs tool) but also the location setting of the search engine. As a local business, most of Jerry’s customers will come from the UK. Using this setting rather than the general Google setting will give him much more accurate results on how his keywords rank in his location.
You should also take time to ensure that your landing page is designed well, but not just in appearance. Be sure to focus on loading speed and usability as well. Together, all of these elements are crucial to the success of your campaigns. Afterall, you don’t want to spend all your time designing PPC ads only to have your leads bounce right off as soon as they reach your boring or unsightly landing page design—or worse, leave before it even has a chance to load.
If your account is currently achieving a return on ad spend (ROAS) of 5, and your goal is to achieve a ROAS of 6, your strategy should focus on efficiency optimizations to improve ROAS. If your account is achieving a ROAS of 5 and your goal is to increase revenue as long as your ROAS is at or above 4 (and you have additional budget to spend), then your strategy will need to focus on growth initiatives.

One of the major promises of enterprise PPC management tools is that they employ bidding strategies that will save you all kinds of money by trimming down your cost per click through intelligent bid algorithms. These algorithms often let you adjust bids by just about any variable available in the AdWords/Bing API’s (you can even create calculated metrics) and adjust bids according to these rules in order to reduce costs. What they usually don’t tell you is the best way to set them up or provide algorithms to you that work out of the box. They give you the fishing line, but don’t always teach you to fish. They are a tool, and what we need is a PPC strategy.
Anschließend ist sie alle ihre Kollegen durchgegangen, die sie aus Fortbildungen und von Fachtagungen her kannte. Vervollständigt hat sie die Liste ihrer Mitbewerber schließlich durch einen Blick ins regionale Anwaltsverzeichnis. „Ich habe mir zu jedem einzelnen notiert: Was kann der besser? Was kann ich besser? Was macht der besonders gern und was nicht? Wo gibt es Überschneidungen zu meinem Angebot? Wo kann ich denen gefährlich werden und wo die mir?“ Ihre Informationen hat Tatjana Schmelzer teils aus persönlichen Gesprächen gewonnen, teils über die Internetseiten der Kanzleien.
It’s actually ideal to use just one keyword per ad group. This is known as a single keyword ad group (SKAG). Try using this strategy, even for large accounts, with 80 percent of keywords that get or you expect to get the most traffic. You should most definitely employ this strategy for keywords that are getting the dreaded “Rarely shown due to low quality score” warning.
Location history of a consumer provides a lot of information specific to that person: where they like to shop, what they like to buy, how often they make the trip, and even how they get there. Obtaining this information gives great insight to marketers that enhances the ability to target consumers and deliver relevant, responsive location specific ads and information, even if the consumer is not currently in that area.
Why make the same mistakes your competitors have made when you can learn from them? As its name implies, SpyFu is a great way to spy on the competition so you can learn from their failures and more importantly, their successes. When you type in a competitor's URL, you'll be able to see how many keywords they are ranking for organically and even the ad value of those keywords. It also offers good analytics on backlinks driving the most traffic to your competitors' sites so you can see where you might want to  publish guest blogs or be listed. If they are running any paid advertising campaigns, you can even see what campaigns they're running and how much they're spending.  
Nachdem Sie im ersten Schritt analysiert haben, welche und wie viele Ihrer Produkte durch die Konkurrenz angeboten werden, sollten Sie jetzt einen aktuellen Preisvergleich zur Konkurrenz ziehen und diese Ergebnisse analysieren. Durch die Analyse der Produktpreise Ihrer Wettbewerber können Sie unterschiedliche Fragen beantworten, zum Beispiel auf welchem Niveau Preise gesetzt werden können, ob Ihre Preise für die gewählte Positionierungsstrategie zu hoch oder zu niedrig angesetzt wurden oder ob Ihre Preise überhaupt wettbewerbsfähig sind.
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.
This is the paid search strategy that is deployed most often by search marketers and for good reason: it focuses purely on maximizing the profitability of campaigns. For most of us, that is the reason why we continue to spend money with search engines, and why the industry keeps on growing year over year. We manage campaigns to maximize profitability and we don’t have to worry about budgets as long as it’s profitable. Or at least that’s what we hope will happen.
