Since then there have been two interesting things we've learned regarding the ad strength tool and an advanced location feature. In this episode, we investigate if our ads are being limited due to ad strength and discuss how we're responding. We also share an advanced location feature that you'll absolutely love and have a chat with the man who told us about it, Ryan Suchit.  (7:45) We need to talk about ad strength on responsive adsAre your ads being limited due to ad strength? The campaign is being throttled in some way, but we don't know how much you’re being limited. (31:20) Advanced location feature in responsive ads If Google knows the location of your user, they will put the city, state, or country (depending on which option you select).

I’ve scaled it out to more locations (national), ran exactly like I had it in my one location, but the conversion rate has completely dropped. How should I target a national campaign for good results? (12:08) Software as a service (SaaS) keywordsI am a Google Ads freelancer with a couple of clients and I wanted to see if you would be interested in covering SaaS products a little more specifically. There are situations where I am targeting keywords that 100% target the services a client offers. I'll spend months trying to get it to work. They have a bunch of people reach the “book now” page and for the most part, they drop off.  I just can't fathom why the keywords I have selected wouldn't work at all.(21:29) Blocking websites in a dynamic remarketing campaignShopping has been the real game-changer for our little online store. This past weekend I launched our first dynamic retargeting campaign, where the specific product someone looked at is marketed back to them. Since we launched, I’ve been playing whack-a-mole constantly! I add websites to my exclusion list daily, hundreds of them. Now I check every site individually to ascertain legitimacy. This is a losing game, I don’t have the time to eliminate hundreds of websites every day! So, isn’t it better to just not let Google do automatic placements, make a list of websites that I know are legitimate websites, and only target those?(31:22) SKAGs for e-commerceI believe that the way I go about setting up google ads using SKAGs for an E-commerce store may be a bit old school. Do you guys have some advice on the best way to advertise products to B2B customers that will "in theory" drive the most conversions?(38:38) NFTs effect on Google AdsDo you think NFTs will impact Google Ads or how we use them? Do you think companies will start to search for NFT specific marketing companies?We need your help!

Don't wait! In this episode, we're explaining how you can get started easily and safely. (7:49) How long should you give your campaign before you expect to see results? Results take time. Wait a minimum of 90 days.(10:20) How to set your first month’s budgetIt will vary depending on the business, but don't budget more than you can afford to lose in 3 months if you didn't get a single conversion. For most businesses, $1000 per month is a good jumping-off point.(15:34) Turn search partners and display network off on campaignIf you're new to Google Ads and concerned with your budget, you want to focus your advertising on Google only. (21:14) Location targeting with advanced optionsPeople are constantly on the move. Go as wide as possible in your service area.(31:35) BiddingStart by using automated bidding with max clicks.(35:29) Match types Try using broad match with max clicks or phrase match; exact match can restrict your results. The most important thing is having good keywords. (43:17) How to find a good set of no brainer, high-value keywords you can't get hurt with There is no fool-proof method. The key is to test and learn.(48:36) AdsYou only need 1 responsive ad in the ad group. Do not include the name of your company in that ad.(50:18) ExtensionsExtensions are different parts of the ad that can show up under your ad copy such as call extensions, call-outs, site links, and structured snippets. You don't get to control how often they show up.(51:38) How you can track leadsCalls from ads, website calls, and lead forms We need your help!

Conversions matter more now that we can’t see or control as many search terms.(29:00) Unlucky Accounts - can’t see a lot of search termsSome accounts are only showing 20% of search terms. That makes it hard to do good work. (34:19) Impression Absolute Top PercentageThe crucial data column tells you exact where you’re at.(41:10) Responsive ads bring volumeIf you want volume, give into responsive ads.(45:10) Weird Search Partners data Keep an eye on this one if you see 90% of clicks or even 100%, unnaturally low CPC, and no conversions.(47:58) Opportunity cost is the biggest lossStart a Google Ads campaign or hire a professional. There's outstanding potential. (51:29) Stop screwing up your Google Ads accountManagers are making too many changes. Have some patience. Strategies take time to develop.

[our company name] is the same keyword [clients] might search for.(23:25) Let's say my click share is 60% and I have 60 clicks. I know that the meaning is that there are 40 clicks that I could have received, but didn't. My question is does it mean the 40 clicks went to my competitor’s ads? Or it could have gone to my organic ad or my competitor's organic ad? Does click share measure from a potential click from paid media only?(33:31) With bounce rate becoming obsolete and being replaced in GA4, do you think Google has been calculating it wrong all this time? Can you shed any insights on how bounce rate and engaged sessions may differ or be the same?(39:58) How do you transition from a very complex setup with multiple campaigns and ad groups that are time-consuming and low performing to the new SKAG structure?(45:33) I'd appreciate you talking about negative keywords and how precise they are now versus in the past and if things are changing in the less "word for word" Google Ads world we live in today. And what are the differences in broad, phrase, and exact match negative keywords if any?We need your help!

Excellent series of Podcasts. These 2 are great Craic. Reciently I'm in the process of listening back from the start. Thr first episode is a little bit monotone, but after that it gets fairly lively. There are times that I'm almost wetting myself with laughter like the start of episode 11. The audio quality on the podcasts are top notch too. I usually finish any review on negative but this time I can't find a fault.
