campaign costs over time too we’re getting to you is negative core
when you’re setting up your campaigns you want to make sure you’re capturing
as much relevant and targeted traffic as possible for example if you’re a luxury
car dealer you wouldn’t want people to find you by searching the words cheap or
an expensive or value so make sure that you’re including these negative keywords
in your campaigns and the more negative keywords you have in place less likely
that you’ll have searchers clicking on your ads who aren’t part of your target
audience 3 setting up irrelevant landing pages one key thing to keep in mind is
what the goal is for your pay-per-click campaigns what is the main call to
action that you want your users to take make sure that your landing pages remove
any additional distractions beyond encouraging searchers from taking the
main action that you desire to meet your campaign goals for not testing your ads

over time in order to do so you’ll want to run multiple variations of your ads

numbers that are provided within google adwords in order to make decisions on
what ads are providing me with the most conversions you should always be testing
your ads so that you can continue making improvements based on your actual
results 5 not tracking conversions if you’re not tracking conversions you
can’t be sure that your campaigns are being effective or not if you’re trying
