Managing text ads requires careful attention to detail, bid and budget management, and keeping a close eye on competitors in the auction. This is where we step in monthly management and reporting for your ads.

Local Services Ads in Google

Local Service Ads

With Google’s Local Service Ads, businesses can be featured prominently in the search results and build trust with potential customers through Google’s screening process. They also provide a better experience for customers by leveraging Google’s ratings system to show reviews, and providing service area coverage information upfront.

Local Service Ads are a great way for businesses to connect with more customers and help them grow their business. Plus, this type of ad auction is built on a pay-per-lead system so you only pay Google when someone reaches out. We’ll help get your business verified so you can start showing information in these ads right away.

Product Listing Ads

Product listing ads, typically referred to as PLAs or Google Shopping Ads, are a type of paid search ad that appear in search engine result pages and the shopping tab of Google. They include detailed product information, such as product name, image, description, price and store name, allowing users to quickly compare different products before making a purchase decision.

Google Shopping management requires maintaining a feed of product data, keeping Google Merchant Center information updated, coordinating marketing initiatives (i.e., displaying coupon codes in search results) and bid managing like any other type of ad on Google.

Display & Remarketing Ads

Extending Google’s advertising capabilities goes beyond the search results page to showing image-based ads on sites related to your products and services. This increases the chances that users will click on those ads and visit your website, raising your traffic and brand awareness. Additionally, remarketing ads enable you to target prior visitors of your site with tailored messages, giving them another opportunity to engage with what you have to offer.

Display and remarketing ads require refinement of Google’s Display Network and careful attention to bids, budget and ad placement. It’s a lot to manage and it’s why we’re here to help.

Frequently Asked Questions About Paid Search

How do paid search ads work?

Advertisers bid on keywords relevant to their business in a search engine’s sponsored links. When a user searches for that keyword, the search engine displays the sponsored ads. If a user clicks on your ad, they are directed to your website, and you pay the search engine a fee for the click.

How much do PPC ads cost?

The cost of paid search advertising varies depending on several factors including the competitiveness of your chosen keywords and the relevancy of your ad. You only pay when someone clicks on your ad, and you can set a budget that suits your business needs.

What are keywords and how do I choose them?

Keywords are words or phrases that users enter into search engines and what trigger your ads. Selecting the right keywords for your campaign is crucial. They should be relevant to your business and match the terms your potential customers are likely to use when searching for your products or services.

What are keyword match types?

Keyword match types, including exact, phrase and broad,  allow for more granular control when creating PPC advertising campaigns. An exact match type ensures that the search term typed in by a user exactly matches the keyword in order to trigger an advertisement. A phrase match type requires that all of the words in the search query be present, though they don’t have to appear in sequence. Lastly, a broad match type allows for variations of a keyword to be used in order to trigger an advertisement.  For example, if “shoes” was the keyword, then a broad match type would also consider terms such as “sneakers,” “running shoes,” and “flip-flops.” It is important to understand each match type when creating your campaigns, as they allow you to control how closely related a search needs to be in order for it to trigger your advertisement.

What are ad groups?

Every PPC account is comprised of campaigns and ad groups. Nested under a campaign, an ad group is the way you separate specific keywords, topics or themes. It’s important to have a good structure for your ad groups so they’re easy to maintain and optimize. The ad group level is also where you set your ad copy, including the headline, description and link where you will land users.

What are keyword bids?

Because ads are served in an auction system, you have to bid on keywords to show your ads. This means you have to find the right keywords for your ad campaign, and then provide a competitive bid for them. You will need to pay more money if there is a lot of competition for certain keywords and phrases. For example, keywords related to a niche product or service will have much lower bids compared to a personal injury law firm where there is immense competition.

What are responsive ads?

The Google Ads platform allows us to create several different headlines and descriptions, then leverage machine learning to serve ads that are most likely to resonate with searchers and earn a click. If you have a specific order you want your headlines to show in, simply pin them when creating an ad.

What is machine learning in Google Ads?

Being an advanced search engine, Google has created several different machine learning algorithms to help optimize ads. These include target cost-per-acquisition (tCPA), target return-on-ad-spend (tROAS), maximize clicks and  auto bidding. With the help of these algorithms, businesses can better optimize their campaigns for improved performance and cost savings.
