  • 4. @annstanleyProduct Listing ads & Creating Product Targets • Select the campaign where you want to create your target • Select the Auto targets tab • Add product target from list on the left • These values must match the values in your Google Merchant Centre feed exactly, or your ads wont be served for these targets • Free shopping results will be replaced by Product Listing ads (latest Q2 in 2013)

  • 18. Ugly – Analytics issues – @annstanleyno ecommerce tracking
  • 19. @annstanleyUgly - Low CTR’s & Quality Scores
  • 20. @annstanley Summary – Managing PPC - What’s important?• Quality Score – Google’s measure of relevancy – it affects your position and how much you pay (eg QS of 8/10 you pays half as compared with 4/10)• Click through rate – use good ad copy and ad extensions to enhance your ad. Pause phrases and ads with a CTR below <1%, otherwise this drags down your QS• Position and bidding – you may have to bid lower (cost per click) and settle for position 3-6 to avoid the bidding war of position 1-3, where the CPC will be too high!• Cost per acquisition (CPA) – most sites have a typical conversion rate of 1%. Your cost per sale or lead will be 100 x your cost per click – can you afford this?
