  • 1. Identify, Analyze, Act: SEM by the Numbers Fighting For Truth in SEM Analytics Craig Danuloff Commerce360 Inc. www.clickequations.com www.clickequations.com/blog
  • 2. What You’re Up Against
    • Invisibility
    • Deception
    • Unlimited Power & Resources
  • 3. Invisibility
    • The Start and The End of what you’re measuring are missing
      • Query
      • Margin (ROI)
    • Every search is a question, every ad is an attempt to answer
      • Keywords are simply connectors
    • ROAS is a ‘feel good’ metric
      • Don’t take it seriously
  • 4. Deception
    • Averages
      • Standard Reporting Roll-ups
      • Avg Position, Avg CPC
      • Avg Revenues, Profit, ROI
    • Accuracy
      • Statistical Significance
      • Margin of Error
    • Attribution/Allocation
      • Revenue to Keywords
      • Expense to Revenue
  • 5. Unlimited Power & Resources
    • Huge Data Volumes
      • Hundreds of Campaigns, Ad-Groups
      • Tens-of-thousands of Keywords
      • More data every day (changing over time)
      • Massively fluid business environment
    • A Change is Not A Test
      • Test Design
      • Test Tracking
      • Scoring Test Results
    • Managing Inter-dependency
      • Every search variable inter-relates
      • Isolating changes and impacts
  • 6. How Good Can Triumph Over Evil
    • De-Cloak ‘em
      • Demand search query details
      • Demand real margin-net Profit-ROI numbers in SEM Analytics
    • Keep ‘em honest
      • Constantly segregate keywords by performance
      • Understand revenue & expense attribution and allocation
      • Don’t get lied to by statistics
    • Use the force
      • Apply math & statistics to numeric problems
      • Make changes with testing and inter-relations in mind
  • 7. Match Type Keyword Traps
    • Prioritize Queries by Match Type
      • Exact are most valuable
      • Phrase are valuable
      • Broad match is often just farming
    • Equalize the ROI
      • Every conversion is worth the same
      • So bids should invert conversion rate
    • Only works within organization
      • Narrow ad-groups based on query-ad relevance
      • Liberal use of negatives to eliminate losers and queries belonging elsewhere
