PPC Admin Overview

For an online retailer, the job of creating and managing keywords and ads for all products, brands and categories manually is a time-consuming, error-prone job that usually results in search term bidding being out of sync with inventory. You use the PPC & SEO section to upload pre-built Campaigns, Ad Groups, Keywords and Text Adverts in a format suitable for the Google AdWords Editor.

You can build and structure Campaigns in a number of ways using the IRP but we recommend aligning your website or inventory with your paid search accounts. For example, using Brand-focused Campaigns that include Brands at an Ad Group level.

Basic strategies & recommendations

  • Structure
    Align your PPC accounts with your website structure and inventory (Brands & Categories).
  • Keywords
    Cover as many variations as possible. Use as many keyword types as is appropriate.
  • Bidding
    Measure Avg Position, Quality Score & CPA. Make adjustments when necessary.
  • Ad Copy
    Ensure that they are relevant and targeted. Include USPs and Calls To Action.
  • Landing Pages
    Ensure that the destination is relevant to the keyword. Try variations.

Application Settings for PPC

You can use the following Application Settings for PPC (these are located in the 'PPC' grouping):

  • Enable PPC Expanded Ads: Check this box to enable expanded ads.
