Pay Per Click Services

Feb 23, 2008
Many consumers think pay per click is a form of online advertising used only by large corporations, which is simply not true. Another myth about Google AdWords PPC campaigns is that you will quickly run out of money before making any sales. On the contrary, with a highly optimized and targeted pay per click campaign, which should always include having an SEO expert analyze your on-page search engine optimization, you can significantly reduce your cost per click for major keywords.

You do not always have to concentrate on the long tail keywords, although these can prove to be quite fruitful if researched correctly. You will be able to compete with Fortune 500 companies for generic keywords (car, boat, house, mortgage) in the same (or higher) position on the first page of Google.

Unfortunately, millions of websites compete and sell more than one type of product. For example, a vitamin store has a difficult time paying less per click if their site is not fully and properly optimized for the search engines, as well as consumers. For example, if you are selling Omega 3 fatty acids on one of your web site pages, and Vitamin E on another, you must make sure you have a completely separate ad campaign and landing page for each product.

Additionally, each product's web page must have the exact keywords researched to match what consumers are actually searching. This means they need to have a website that is optimized for every single product (some sites have thousands of products), with individual pages and search engine optimized (SEO) keywords for each of these pages. Guessing what these keywords should be is not a wise course of action.

Another way to save money on your pay per click advertising budget depends upon your market and consumer's buying habits. You might consider running your ads Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. However, if you run a website where users predominantly search for your products or services on the weekends, save money and only run your campaigns on Saturday and Sunday.

Don't be afraid to ask your customers what time they found you, and on which day. Always make sure to find out which keywords they typed and search engine they used. Statistically, one out of every three consumers use Google for all of their search queries. This will help you narrow your target market and advertise only where consumers find and buy from you.

Save more advertising cash by placing Google Analytics on every single page of your web site. It is free and critical to research the habits of visitors once they arrive on your web site. Just based on Analytics findings, you can make changes to your web site, which will increase sales substantially.

Lastly, do not advertise on the Content Network until you are an expert using pay per click. This option is only for people who know their consumers' spending habits and have researched the exact websites they shop on most of the time. If you set up your pay per click campaign and start running your ads on the Google Content Network blindly, you will lose all of your money and rarely make a sale, if any at all.

When it comes to pay per click advertising, having a highly targeted set of campaigns, keywords and ads, set up by a pay per click professional who is also an SEO expert will ensure you are 99.9 per cent ahead of all other companies competing for the same products and services.

Most pay per click companies only set you up with keywords and ads, which will cost you a great deal of money each time someone clicks on your ads, since your actual web site is not SEO optimized for AdWords. Make sure you choose a pay per click expert who is also an SEO professional who includes both, without upselling you on other services you do not need.

By using the valuable tips outline here, you will be well ahead of your competition using pay per click.
