What did you learn? “The huge amount of money I am losing by not making proper and effective use of negative keywords” “There is always plenty of work that I can constantly do to keep my PPC productive” “I was shocked how poor my click through rate is!” “I just started managing this campaign. I’m shocked by the score only because Google told me it was well structured.” “I had no idea that improving quality score by just one could have such a positive effect” “Nothing. I knew it was not great.” @larrykim
What I will do differently in PPC “Improve my long tail keyword optimization and quality score - my focus this month” “Raise quality scores, grow multiple word keywords, and get more relevant landing pages” “Frequent my account much more and continuously work on keywords and optimization” “Go back and fix my mobile extensions” “I have a clear definition of what I need to focus on in the next few weeks. Adding Negative keywords among the top” “Change everything as the grade is zero” @larrykim
