  23. 23. Account Structure ! ! Typically like to see accounts have 60-70% of volume from exact match with 30-40% through broad match modified and phrase.
  24. 24. Account Structure ! ! What Happens When An Accounts Has Lots of Broad Match? Heavy use of broad match can lead to cross pollination in your account. To see how this affects your account, run a search query report, place in a pivot table and see how many keywords are matching to each query. Using more controlled match types [exact] and negatives keywords allows you to steer traffic to the most efficient keywords.
  25. 25. Account Structure 10-15 keywords per ad group we’ve found allow for tighter themes, resulting in higher quality scores. How Many KWs Per AdGroup?
