BEST PRACTICES THE BEST KEYWORDS COME FROM YOUR OWN CONTENT 5
BEST PRACTICES Find “goldmine” keywords from existing website content Site Navigation structure helps define distinct PPC Campaigns, Adgroups and Keywords. Utilize for you internal site search results. See what people are searching for on your site. Most likely they will use that to type in Google Use SKUs and Model Numbers of products as keywords, as searches often search specifically for that. 6
HEAD VS. TAIL What’s the difference? Length of the word or phrase of what a human types into a search engine . Head Terms usually: Drive most of your traffic Most expensive for PPC Most competitive (all search) Hardest to win (all search) Drive most traffic but not best performers Long Tail usually: Drives least amount of traffic Least expensive for PPC Less competitive (all search) Easier to win (all search) Drives less but more qualified traffic to website 7
