Negative Keyword Slides

A few months ago we delivered a killer Negative Keyword Webinar, but neglected to post the slides.  One of my coaching students made me aware of this, and some people are having trouble watching the video (just clear your cache if you are, this fixes it 90% of the time).

In any event, you can download the negative keyword slides here in PDF format.

The majority of AdWords accounts we’ve seen have been incredibly under-optimized for negative keywords.   Most people know what they are, and have a few dozen, or perhaps a few hundred.  But an optimized account making good use of broad match will often have THOUSANDS of negatives which can DRAMATICALLY increase your click through rate and reduce your cost per acquisition.

And when you combine the power of  Rocket Clicks negative keyword strategy with the power of the hyper-responsive adwords bulls eye process, you wind up with an extraordinary Adwords campaign, both optimized and easy to manage.  (The bulls eye process relies heavily on identifying the 6 most important keywords in your market, then leveraging Google’s broad match algorithms to expand your traffic around this theme)

Seriously, if your Adwords spend is even $100/mo, the time you spend watching this FREE webinar and studying the slides is a total “no brainer”.    It’s one of the very few times I’m comfortable saying it’s entirely possible you’ll make money TONIGHT with this information.

All my best,

Your Marketing Center of Gravity

There’s one mistake I see people make more often than any other (in both Adwords and Organic SEO), which could be defined as not having a “marketing center of gravity”.

You may THINK you know what I mean, and on the surface, you probably do.  But when you watch the video below, you’ll see the IMPLICATIONS are much further reaching, and in many ways the opposite of what you currently think they are.

I can’t recommend you watch this one more highly (I know that’s kind of immodest, please don’t tell my Mom):

AdWords Conversion Optimizer – Maximum Results Secrets

This 19 minute FREE MP3 might be the newest, easiest way to squeeze more profitable traffic from your AdWords account this year.  (It’s certainly the most I’ve learned about AdWords in the shortest period of time… with the fewest obstacles and resources required to execute)

Over the past few years, AdWords has introduced progressively more granular data which provides tremendous power and potential to optimize your campaign.  Whether it’s conversion by time of day, ability to day part and adjust bids, position preference, etc., … we’re getting to the point where it will actually be possible to laser target the exact right position at the exact right time for the exact right searcher, every time.

Unfortunately, unless you’ve got a Ph.D. in data mining and analysis, it’s also fairly difficult for the average pay per click marketer to actually USE the wealth of data AdWords provides.  Indeed, in well over 100 consultations/account audits I personally did last year, I’d venture to say less than 5% of campaigns were taking full advantage.

Which is why Google introduced the CONVERSION OPTIMIZER … their black box, automated algorithm for managing all this behind the scenes for you, hands free 🙂

Unfortunately there are several intricacies of the conversion optimizer which are difficult for all but the professional AdWords manager to observe.

Which is why Nicole Nerad of (one of our high level PPC managers) compiled these 5 Secrets of the Conversion Optimizer blog post.  I interviewed her about this in the FREE MP3 below, which I strongly recommend you listen to right now. (I really, really try not to be sensational or “hypey”… so I hope you’ll recognize that if I’m this excited, there’s something real to pay attention to… I really DO think there’s money on the table in most AdWords accounts for people that follow this advice, and best of all, it doesn’t take much time or effort AT ALL, just some special knowledge and a few minutes of careful attention each day)

Hope you enjoy!

Content Network Fraud Issue

As covered in a recent Rocket Clicks blog post there’s much more motivation for click fraud on the content as compared to search network in Google (and more generally in contextual advertising vs. search advertising).  That’s because of the “Adsense Motivation” (site owners make money from clicks).

I asked Rob (our PPC Director) for 10 minutes of his time to review a novel approach to Content Network click fraud which everyone should be attending to, not only because it’s easily eliminated, but because it’s also easy to document and have reversed in your account.

Listed to the MP3 below.

Hope it helps,

Glenn 🙂

Google vs. Bing, New AdWords Interface, More

Just wanted to let you all know how proud I am of our PPC blogging team.   Rob Sieracki just made a new post on AdWords vs. Bing which is definitely worth reading both from an advertiser AND consumer perspective.   And Nicole Nerad posted on the top features and tricks of the new AdWords Interface which can quickly save you some time (and money)

AdWords Broad Match Management Gold

Traditional management of keyword match types within Adwords has changed dramatically as the years have passed, in particular as Google seems to have expanded it’s definition of how broad “broad match” really is.

While the profit volume one can achieve using broad match is tremendous, the risk is of equal proportion if it’s not managed correctly.

Most recently, the team (at the suggestion of Jered, who you’ll hear interviewed here) has innovated a broad match management technique which gives you the ability to more specifically manage this risk.

I have to admit, as common-sense and obvious as this one was, I didn’t think of it myself and heard no one else talking about it.

Enjoy this short but powerful interview 🙂
