  14. 15. Microsoft AdCenter AdCenter has an Interesting Implementation - Negative Match is sort of like broad match - add plurals, misspellings - Maximum: 1022 characters (1K) total - Keyword length < 100 characters - Cascading Application of Negatives: Campaign >> Adgroup >> Keyword
  15. 16. Evaluating Negatives Be Selective About Negatives - Contain your impulse to add randomly. - Implement in batches, measure impact. Keyword Discovery - what is real volume? - what is real impact against your keywords? Document Your Negatives - Why did you choose it? - What impact did you expect to have? - If it didn't have an impact, try others
  16. 17. Evaluating Negatives Focus on High Payoff Words - Even 100 keywords are a lot to manage. - Create a Hierarchy of Importance - Keep lists shorter, rather than longer. Keyword Volume Associated Word Trying to Eliminate: Plastic 10,000 Faux Panels Plastic Panels Foam 100 Faux Panels Foam Panels Styrofoam 1000 Faux Panels Styrofoam Panels Stirofoam 10 Faux Panels Stirofoam Panels
  17. 18. Best Practices Be Selective - Negatives are easy to add, but campaigns get bulky. - Some keywords that seem important, aren't. - Look at your weblogs for evidence of 'leakage' Add Negatives Conservatively - If you want to grow, add a volume dimension. - Don't cut & paste from adgroup to adgroup blindly. Think Portability - Each network has slightly different limits. - Design for lowest common denominator.
