  • Introduce who we are and overview of our experience
  • Okay so we have created our account, our campaigns, our ad groups and our ads – no how do we get to the top?? Again for google it is all about relevance. Google has applied relevance to its sponsored listings as well. Now adword campaigns have a quality score. Your quality score is based on how well the ad is written, how relevant and specific the landing page is and how many negative words have been employed. For example if you are a pump manufacturer and your pumps go in manufacturing facilities you want to be found for rotary displacement pumps or centrifugal pumps but you don’t want to be found for well pumps or fuel pumps to for you negative words would be fuel and well.
