How To Find High-Paying Keywords

When it comes to pay-per-click (PPC) advertising and marketing, one concept takes precedence above all others: keywords.

What Is Pay-Per-Click Part One: Overview

Understanding pay-per-click (or PPC) advertising really isn’t so difficult. A person signs up with a PPC company (the best known one is the Google operated Adsense, but others do exist). As PPC is all about earning money from advertising revenue on your website, you will need to have a website with at least a few pages on it to sign up. This is a given in another respect; to use PPC, you’re going to want to be displaying ads, and you need a website to do that with!

Utilise WordPress Plugins With Your PPC Campaign

WordPress is perhaps the world’s premier blogging platform, and is being used more and more often as a Content Management System (CMS) as well as a platform for traditional  blogs. One of the reasons for its success is because of how easy to use it is, even for absolute  newcomers with no coding experience.

Pay-Per-Click Advertising: The Importance of the Fold

On a website, the “fold” is the area of screen available to anyone who visits that site without them needing to use the scrollbars. Essentially, “above the fold” is the area that can be seen without using the mouse or the keyboard to navigate through the site – and it usually includes things like the header or the logo. “Below the fold” is the subsequent content, that you need to use the mouse or keyboard to reach. The “fold” appears at different levels depending on screen size, and it’s a surprisingly important aspect of choosing where to locate pay-per-click (better known as PPC) adverts.

The Importance of Obeying PPC Terms & Conditions

Pay-per-click (often abbreviated to PPC) is one of the most reliable forms of online income, and a great tool for Internet Marketers to utilise. The most popular PPC method, Google’s AdSense platform, has created a sustainable online income for many a savvy marketer – and other methods have enjoyed similar success.

Common PPC Mistakes #10: This Product Is Not Tested – At All

One thing that is now common to all the major search engines is that they will allow you to have multiple ad copies which can have a great deal of individual utility. For example, one copy of your ad can be linked to a different landing page than the other, have different wording within the ad itself, and will have its own statistics as laid out by the provider you use. This makes it possible to test your ads in the early days of a campaign – and to choose whichever ad has given you the best results when making a decision going forward. This kind of live testing can, if used correctly, work very well for you.

Common PPC Mistakes #9: Fixing Your Eyes Too Firmly On The Prize

There has been some discussion already of the problem of breathlessly chasing the number one ranking for a certain keyword. Some people will get involved in a bidding war to have this ranking, in the belief that it will result in big-time PPC results – but all too often they are wrong. Certainly, there is a very real chance that you will end up spending too much for the price of a keyword to really be justified in terms of what it pays out to you. And this is all the more regrettable, because there are real advantages to not being right at the top.

Common PPC Mistakes #8: Resting On Your Laurels

The old saying which goes “a watched pot never boils” is there to dissuade us from micro-managing everything in our lives. It is important, though, to recognize that just as intricate, obsessive following of details will do us more harm than good, the best way to do things is not the exact opposite of micro-management – rather, it is somewhere in the middle, between too much and too little focus on the point. Therefore, when you start placing PPC ads it is important to realize that there is such a thing as too much “laissez-faire”.

Common PPC Mistakes #7: The Disconnect

Internet Marketers have been experimenting with the medium for a few years now, and one thing that has become very clear is that if it takes someone three or more clicks to get to where they want to be, they will often give it up and go somewhere else. This is naturally something you will want to avoid when you are marketing, so it is important to avoid this kind of disconnect. Keep everything interesting where your potential customers will be able to see it, and you will get a lot further in your marketing campaigns. Make them work for it and they will just find someone else.

Common PPC Mistakes #6: Not Getting The RIGHT Information In Your Ads

There is an old joke, which frequently turns up both in spoof ad pages in magazines, and still to this day in some classified ads. It says “FREE SEX!” in big, bold letters, and in the smaller text on the following lines says “Well, not really, but now we have your attention…”. Although fairly tedious, this does help to make a point, which is that the most important thing about PPC advertisements is their ability to grab a person’s attention. You can worry all night about what you are going to feature in your ad and what you will cut, but in the first instance, you need to be getting the salient information in.
