Are you paying hundreds or even thousands of dollars in your AdWords campaigns for IRRELEVANT clicks? Unless you have added NEGATIVE Keywords to your campaign, I can almost guarantee you that you are.
I had a client who was wasting over 70% of their AdWords pay per click money due to not knowing about this trick.
Google itself says “Negative keywords can help you reach the MOST interested customers, reduce your costs, and INCREASE your return on investment.”
Using Negative keywords prevents you from wasting ad spend on keywords that aren’t relevant to your business or it’s audience.
Here’s an Example:
Let’s say your company provides windows replacement service for residential & commercial buildings.
Naturally one of the main keywords that you will advertise on Google will be windows.
So let’s say you do launch a campaign with the keyword windows in broad match in order to show your ads to prospects looking for:
new home windows
energy star windows
double hung windows
and hundreds more…
…which is what most companies would do especially if they don’t have an expert setup or manage their campaign.
But here’s a MAJOR problem:
What about windows related to computers/software etc…?
Or worst, what about windows related to auto/vehicles?
Which means your ads can also show in searches like:
windows media player
64 bit windows
and so on…
Not only those, but the ads can also show in search phrases like:
cracked truck windows
repair windows of pick up
break in windows
windows for Nissan
and so on…
Simply add words like live, vista, download, Microsoft, auto, car, truck, Nissan, pick up, etc… as NEGATIVE keywords and your ads stop showing any time any of the negative keywords are added in search phrases.
You can probably imagine now how many companies are wasting money on search engines by NOT adding NEGATIVE keywords to their campaigns. I sincerely hope yours is not one of them.
