10 Facts You Should Know About PPC Advertising

Author: Peter Dulay

Before you get yourself into the Pay Per Click (PPC) advertising venture, understand that there are 10 important things that you should know so you won't get stuck in an advertising mess including wasting a lot of your time and money.

1. Landing Page. You should create a specific landing page for every PPC campaign. Don't combine the products or services that your business is providing into just one landing page or even making your home page as your landing page.

2. Keyword Layout. To uncover the best arrangement of words, experiment with the keyword placement of your PPC ad. Try all possible line arrangements and take note of your click-thru rates, as well as, analyze whether your conversion rates remain the same or have changed.

3. Call to Action. Constantly utilize a call to to action like 'click here', 'start now', 'join now', 'learn more', and 'don't miss out' to prompt your readers to click on your Pay Per Click ad, rather than letting your potential buyers advance to the next advertisement to see if it might provide something better.

4. Pay Attention. Monitor your PPC campaigns daily. There are many cases that your PPC advertising platform will freeze your campaign ads for a variety of reasons. For example, Google will stop ads that are 'underperforming'. Pay close attention to your campaign and make changes when necessary to make sure all of your adverts stay active and make a lot of impressions.

5. Trademarked Names. Avoid using trademarked names like 'Ebay', 'Amazon', or 'Walmart' with Google Ad Words since these names could get you in trouble and even an Ad Words account suspension. Worst, you could be prosecuted for using these trademarks without consent.

6. Conversion and Traffic. Create a balance between convertibility and traffic levels on your PPC campaign. Does a free trial of the product or service get you a high conversion rate but low sales? Or you fancy a lower conversion rate but higher sales from sincere buyers? It's your choice.

7. Contextual Advertising. Contextual advertising programs permit you to choose where your PPC ads will be published. Particularly if you notice an unusually high click-thru rate with the content network, or a low conversion rate, capitalize on this program.

8. Bid Higher. Getting your PPC ad on the first page of the search query has been proven to dramatically increase impression-to-click conversion rates. This has a compound effect with Google Ad Words since your ad positioning is determined by your bid multiplied by your click-thru rate.

9. Top 3 Slots. The top 3 slots get the most unsolicited clicks or 'test' clicks, and for sure you don't want to pay for these, do you? So, avoid these top 3 slots and instead, aim for the succeeding positions which are still listed on the first page of the search query.

10. Landing Page Test. First optimize your landing page to achieve an optimum conversation rate. Second, to generate maximum targeted traffic to your site, always test your landing pages.

Knowing these 10 simple PPC search marketing facts is the first step to a successful PPC internet advertising campaign. I hope you find this useful and I wish you luck on your online advertising investment.
