  13. 13. Tip 2: Focus on Relevance“Always be relevant, create relevant campaigns and give theuser the answer to his query as precisely as you can. Theremust be extreme relevance between keywords, ad text andlanding page content. Narrowly focused ad groups, each onea variation of a single keyword…… I focus on getting higher scores (by increasing CTR,optimizing keywords, ads and landing pages)… with highQuality Scores I pay less per click. I always try to get higherQuality Scores than 6.”–Marko Kvesic, GoTraffic Online Marketing Agency 13
