Recent Google AdWords Changes and How They Will Impact You

As you have likely heard, Google has recently announced that it is changing the way it approaches keywords in its AdWords campaigns. The new changes are related to the way that exact and broad matches are made.

These new changes are promising, and they are designed to reduce issues associated with misspellings, plurals, accents and abbreviations. In the past, only exact matches would trigger the ad. Beginning in mid-May, exact match can be used to match broad variants. This new approach is designed to match user intent with the appropriate AdWords.

*Address User Differences
The new changes are designed to address the fact that different people may enter variants of the same keyword during their searches. This has caused lots of marketers trouble in the past, and it often led many firms to create multiple AdWords using various keywords. Now, they can simply choose to include close variants in their campaigns. This will attract more shoppers and promises to make marketing easier.

Google AdWords API Upgrade

Google AdWords API UpgradeThe first Google AdWords API Upgrade of the year has been released and the developments listed look, as always, extremely promising.
 
The one thing that Google always does well is to listen to the needs of Google AdWords Pay Per Click Managers and Google AdWords Pay Per Click Advertisers and then act upon those needs. Google AdWords Pay Per Click, thanks to this most recent Google AdWords API Upgrade, is about to get even better. Allow Webrageous Studios to give you all a quick low-down on the recent developments.

What’s New with the Google AdWords API Upgrade

Google AdWords API v201101 is going to include the following Pay Per Click Management features and tools:
 

  1. A feature to allow reports to be run across clients
  2. Improved filtering features and Pay Per Click monitoring tools
  3. Better geo-targeting features (Google AdWords Pay Per Click will now allow Pay Per Click Advertisers to specify if they want to geo-target the internet user based on their IP location or on the location that they enter into the search… very useful!)
  4. A/B split testing tools (the Google AdWords API upgrade is going to support Campaign Experiments which means that A/B Pay Per Click Campaign Testing can be easily put in place and every Pay Per Click Manager can monitor the little changes that they make to their campaigns in real time).

Out of all of the developments that Google has made to the Google AdWords API, Webrageous Studios would like to focus on and highlight somewhat those changes made to the Google AdWords Pay Per Click Cross-Client Reporting feature, outlined in bullet point number one above.

Google AdWords Pay Per Click Cross-Client Reporting

The new Google AdWords Reports will allow the Pay Per Click Manager to spot the various trends occurring across his/her client base from many different perspectives and angles. The Pay Per Click Manager will be able to evaluate and analyze trends across:
 

  • Geo Performance
  • Demographic Performance
  • Ad Extensions Performance
  • Destination URL

There are some other ways in which the reports can be used to analyze data, but Webrageous Studios believes the areas listed above to be the most useful overall. Indeed, for US Law Firms which use Google AdWords Pay Per Click as part of their online advertising campaigns, Ad Extensions will be very useful. These Pay Per Click Advertisers will find the data generated in these reports helpful because they will be able to see which areas of their legal services are generating the most interest from their online customers.

Google AdWords Product Listing Advertisements

google adwords product listing advertisementsDo you remember when Google AdWords announced that its new Product Listing Advertisements were available to all Pay Per Click Advertisers to use within their Google AdWords Campaigns?

If not, let’s give you a quick recap…

Understanding Google AdWords Product Listing Advertisements

Product Listing Advertisements via Google AdWords are advertisements which allow Pay Per Click Advertisers to bid on product-related keywords. Therefore, if you are a florist and you specialize in flower arrangements for funerals, you might want to bid on keywords such as “funeral flowers,” “funeral Bouquets,” or even “funeral wreaths,” as an example.

 

When you bid on these keywords and you create your Google AdWords Advertisement, the Google Adwords Product Listing Feature will allow you to place a picture of your product next to the text section of the advertisement, which is clearly even more enticing for a potential customer. Google AdWords Product Listing Advertisements can help a business to generate higher CTRs thanks to their particular style and layout.

 

Now that we are up to date with what the Google AdWords Product Listing Advertisement actually is, it will make even more sense as to why the ability to be able to use negative keywords alongside these advertisements will allow Pay Per Click Advertisers to optimize their Pay Per Click Campaigns even further.

Using Negative Keywords with Google AdWords Product Listing Advertisements

Naturally, if you are a florist specializing in funeral flowers, possible negative keywords that you might want to invest in would be “wedding flowers,” “valentines flowers” or maybe even “thank you bouquets.”

 

Clearly, the thought that goes into the choice of negative keywords demands a lot of consideration and time, but the fact that Google AdWords has made this feature readily available is already a step in the right optimization direction for all Google AdWords Pay Per Click Campaigns.

 

If you need some help in the selection of negative keywords for your Google AdWords Product Listing Advertisements, or for any kind of Google AdWords Pay Per Click Advertisement come to that, do not hesitate in contacting Webrageous Studios directly today as we will be able to help you. All of our Pay Per Click Managers are highly experienced and Google AdWords Certified.
