The influence of Product Listing Ads continues to grow and as Google tests new formats to display these results, competition in this space will grow even fiercer. If you are an E-commerce site and don’t have PLAs, get them now!
Do you know how mobile visitors engage and convert on your site? Understanding mobile visitor conversion rates and CPA figures is crucial when setting mobile bid modifiers.
You don’t want to waste your budget by showing ads to parts of the world that your business doesn’t serve. Be sure your targeting is set up correctly.
Implementing a broad match keyword list with no negative keywords could result in irrelevant searches triggering your ads.
Creating product-specific landing pages will boost conversion rates as your keywords, ad copy, and landing pages should all align around a single product or type of product.
Don’t just create one ad and forget about it. Testing different ad variations against each other will help find the best ad copy for driving revenue.
