  30. 30. Agenda Creative Strategy Introduction Industry Standard Match Types Canonical Terms The Duplicate Effect Yahoo! Match Types Advanced Match Best Practices Bids/Ad Quality Copy Writing Tips Quality and Relevance Takeaway Points to Remember
  31. 31. Creating Turnkey Search Marketing Campaigns Yahoo!’s ad-ranking model is a combination of bid and quality Creative management’s goal is to drives quality › Proactive account analysis › Account structure (which KWs in which ad groups) › KW selection › Writing new ads (display urls, titles & descriptions) › Developing ad testing strategies › Creating search-focused response to display-focused RFPs Better quality = better performance More clicks at the same CPC (better rank) Same clicks at lower CPC (better quality score at same rank)
  32. 32. Match Types - Industry Standards Exact Match: Match type that only serves ads for search queries that exactly match the bidded term Phrase Match: Match type that serves ad for exact matches and search queries that included the bidded term Broad Match: Match type that will serve ads for exact matches, phrase matches, and other search queries deemed relevant to the bidded term as determined by the search engine Negative Match (Excluded terms): Provides advertiser control to prevent ad serving for queries with the negative term (e.g. Airlines typically negative match the term “crash”)
  33. 33. Canonical Terms ExplainedYahoo! search technology takes multiple forms of keywords and maps them to a single primary formthrough a process called canonicalization. This could include spelling corrections, plurals and similarphrases.Any identical canonical keyword form is a duplicate. As a result, you do not need to bid on everykeyword variation individually. You only need to bid on the term “London Hotel” once to be displayedfor every canonical keyword variation.
  34. 34. The Duplicate EffectThe term “Holiday in Spain” appears in different ad groups, the example below shows howduplicates can cause internal competition and inflate CPCs.The bids and the QI scores work together to affect CPC as well as ranking. By removing thesecond keyword, there may be a positive impact on floor CPCs (i.e. lower minimum bid).
  35. 35. Yahoo! Match Types
  36. 36. Advanced Match Best Practices Before converting a Google bulksheet to Yahoo!, remove Excluded Words which are all or part of your bidded term › Having these excluded words will not remove Standard Match traffic (as on Google) › This will actually block your most relevant Advanced Match queries (via Subphrase Match & Units). Revisit your accounts to ensure you’re not limiting traffic. When adding Excluded Words, avoid adding similar phrases as you may be duplicating efforts › EXAMPLE: “tie”, “dye” and “tie dye” › Do not add multiple Excluded Words that roll up into the same canonical › EXAMPLE: “shoe” and “shoes” – only need to add one Avoid long phrases, as we will only exclude you from serving if we find the full phrase in the query Remember that you CAN block part of your bidded term, but you will always serve via Standard Match
  37. 37. How Bids/Ad Quality Affect PositionThe minimum bid is the bid Position Min Bid Max Bid required for the advertiser 1 £ 3.00 £ 5.00 with the best ad quality to obtain that position 2 £ 2.80 £ 4.75The maximum bid is what it will 3 £ 2.70 £ 4.50 take the advertiser with the 4 £ 2.50 £ 4.30 worst ad quality to obtain that position 5 £ 2.00 £ 3.75 6 £ 1.75 £ 3.45 7 £ 1.60 £ 3.15 8 £ 1.50 £ 2.80 9 £ 1.25 £ 2.60 10 £ 1.10 £ 2.40
  38. 38. SERP and Copy Best Practices With more granular ad control, copy can be very targeted to the search query; advertisers can maximize bolding to increase CTR, and therefore, average position without raising bids.Overall, focus copy on responding to the search query with specificity, clarity, relevance and competitive advantages. The search term is your key click incentive – by using the search term in both the T&D can increase CTR by as much as 50%. Always test.
  39. 39. Quality and Relevance Increase ad quality across the board. Better ads protect against new entrants and displacement by competition. Higher quality scores can reduce CPCs and increase the total amount clicks that can be captured through increased CTR. By lining up the ads and landing pages, conversion rates should increase. Revise destination URLs to avoid generic landing page and use deep links to improve relevancy. A display URL is an easy way to let user feel confident that the site content is relevant. Writing more specific display URLs is also an good opportunity to add another line of text - www.textlocal.com/SMS. Turn ad optimization on and test multiple ads. Keep poor-performing ads from being shown in equal rotation with high-performing ads, which could negatively affect your CTRs, QIs and potential sales. Testing different ad variations can help you identify the most effective messaging. Remember, but doing nothing, your QI can still fall. Use keyword insertion to increase relevancy. Using the search term in both the T&D can increase CTR by as much as 50%.
  40. 40. The Structure of the Account is the FoundationGroup keywords by term type and theme. By granularly structuring ad groups, more targeted copy can be assigned to a more relevant set of keywords. By increasing ad quality you can likely lift CTR - making higher ad positions cheaper or decreasing your CPC to maintain a certain positionIsolate top-performing, high-volume keywords and eliminate variables. Higher impression keywords have a greater influence on not only which ad will serves, but also what the QI for an ad group will be. Therefore, by grouping high- and low-volume keywords together, you could be masking the true performance of an ad group. By isolating your top-volume, higher-value keywords, you have more transparency on what decisions to make next (better ad testing, bid changes, more specific display URL, budgeting).Separate brand vs. unbranded. To allow for effective budgeting, you should always separate brand from unbranded terms..
