3 Common Google Ads Mistakes to Avoid Making

Recently we discussed how to evaluate whether your PPC campaign is worth it? In this post we will discuss 3 common Google Ads mistakes that people make all too often in their PPC Campaigns.

Not enough ads per group

Less is certainly not more when it comes to ads in your ad group. Google recommends that it is best practice to have at least three ads per ad group. If you only have one ad then you aren’t giving Google’s machine learning technology the proper chance to analyze and prioritize the ads that are expected to perform better.

Bad Landing Page

While getting a lot of traffic from Google Ads is a good thing, if you aren’t getting conversions out of these hits then it’s simply a waste of money. One big reason why you may be failing to get conversions is if your landing page is poor, if your landing page is poor people will land on your page, be unimpressed and leave without you converting them which means they cost you money and you got nothing in return. To ensure that your landing page is good you should ensure the following:

  • It loads fast
  • It has a clear Call to Action
  • It’s easy to read and navigate
  • It speaks to the audience who your ad is targeted at

Not taking advantage of Location Settings

To ensure that the right people, your target market see your ad you need to configure the location settings. If you only wish for your ad to be seen in a specific county, province or country you can do so through here. For instance, if your ad is aimed at businesses in Wexford then it shouldn’t be appearing in Dublin, Cork etc.. By taking advantage of location settings you can ensure that your budget will be spent on the right places.

By ensuring that you avoid these 3 common Google Ads mistakes you will minimise the risk of wasting your ads budget and greatly increase your chances of getting your target market to see and click on your ads and most importantly get conversions to your website from your successful PPC campaign.

Is my PPC Campaign worth it?

April 30, 2019

Pay-per-click, commonly known as PPC, is a paid advertising strategy which is used to get your ad in front of your target demographic. When your PPC campaign is effective it can become a brilliant source of lead generation to your website. However conversely if your campaign is ineffective and is costing you money without giving you the leads and results you envisioned it can quickly become a very dear misadventure.

If you find yourself spending a lot of money on ads and PPC but still aren’t seeing good results then you need to take a step back and ask yourself the question “Is my PPC Campaign worth it?”. By taking a step back and evaluating the effectiveness or lack thereof of your campaign you can determine whether you need to tweak your campaign for better and improved results or whether you need to pause your campaign entirely and go back to the drawing board.

You need to be sure before you delete a PPC campaign because when you do you will lose all of its data and will be unable to retrieve any of it back. Before you delete an underperforming campaign you should first evaluate it and see if you can apply some tweaks to fix it and turn it into a strong performing campaign. To ensure your PPC campaign can perform as strongly as possible ensure that you have considered and took the following into account:

Evaluate Your Chosen Keywords:

For any PPC campaign to be successful it needs to incorporate the right keywords. These keywords need to be relevant to your target demographic. By undergoing proper keyword research before you start your campaign you can minimise the risk that you will incorporate irrelevant keywords in your campaign.

Landing Page Optimisation:

Your landing page will be the first impression for the users who you will get through your PPC campaign. Thus it is vital that your homepage gives a good first impression, by ensuring that the page is correctly optimised to give a good user experience you will increase your chances of getting conversions from your paid traffic. There is no point getting people to your website just for them to have a bad user experience and bounce, that will simply cost you money and give you nothing in return.

Created Ads:

Lastly you need to ensure that the ads themselves that you create need to be appealing and enticing enough to get people to click on them. To ensure that your ad speaks to your target audience incorporate the main keywords (which you will have discovered from your keyword research) into them and include a snippet that will act as a powerful and intriguing call to action.

Before you give up on your PPC campaign make the tweaks. By making these tweaks you should see an improvement in your PPC campaign and generate better results. For advice and information on having a successful website get in touch with 2Cubed today!

How to Use Adwords

Category: Tips and Tricks
February 15, 2019

Google ads formerly known as google adwords is an online based advertising tool that businesses can use to promote their website and acts as Google’s platform for pay per click ads.

Google ads give businesses complete control over all aspects such as the ads they create, when those ads start and stop, how much money they wish to spend with daily budget options available and you can even set specific goals which you wish to achieve with your ad such as increasing website visits and product sales to conversions for completion of contact forms etc..

Google adwords basically works like an auction with businesses bidding on keywords and search terms and phrases that are used to match your specific ad with the similar terms that your target demographic is inputting in their searches online. When people search for keywords relevant to your ad the chances that google will display your ad to them are greatly increased.

A great thing about using CPC (Cost per Click) advertising through a tool such as Google ads is that you will only ever be charged when people actually click on your ad. This means that you are not generally wasting money as you are guaranteed that these people are at least visiting your website. The key however is to make sure it’s the right people visiting your site, your target demographic which would be the people in which you will generate conversions from. To ensure that you are targeting and reaching the right audience with your ads google offer excellent tools such as the keyword planner tool which will aid you when doing keyword research which is a vital thing to ensure you have done before embarking on any advertising campaign as it will inform your strategy.

While there is no cost to set up a Google Ads account, it will cost you to have your ads appear. To have your ads run successfully Google Ads will have you bid on the keywords you most wish to target just like an auction. Google follows the CPC (cost per click) bidding model for most of its ad services which means that if you tell google that your maximum daily budget is €20 and the click costs €5 your budget will buy you 4 clicks for the day.

When used wrongly adwords can be a waste of money but when used correctly as part of a structured and cohesive targeted campaign it can generate you a lot of conversions and success that make the cost per click well worth the price.
