Are You Doing AdWords Wrong? Make It Right

What has come up as one of the most common factor affecting the AdWords performance is using 10 to 20 keywords in a single ad. Just because all 20 keywords have same theme does not mean that it is going to do some wonders.

An astonishing fact is that even Google recommends doing the same over the AdWords dashboard. However, one thing that the leading search engine fails to mention is that adding too many keywords in a single ad can make it very hard for the message to match. Message match takes place when the search term used by the user matches with the ad. This is quite essential, as it does not take more than a split second to decide the ad to click. With too many keywords per ad, you can never expect a 100% message match.


The solution to a perfect message match is SKAG i.e. single keyword ad groups. SKAGs allow you to create a message match between the keyword and the ad. When you have just a single keyword per ad, your attempt should be using something that could make your ad specific. You need to keep in mind that:

Higher Keyword Relevancy = Higher Click Rate = Quality Score = Lower Cost per Conversion

It is best when you create two different ads in each ad group. Both the ads should be following the format below:

master_tickHeadline should include the keyword
master_tickIn the first description line, mention the benefits and features
master_tickIn the second description line, talk again about the benefits in a ‘Call to action’ manner
master_tickIn the display URL, mention your

When you are creating a single keyword ad group having two ads, you need to use the keywords as follows:

Keyword 1 : Ad Variant 1

Keyword 1: Ad Variant 2

Keyword 2: Ad Variant 1
Keyword 2: Ad Variant 2

To make sure you get high click through rates, SKAG aka Single Keyword Ad Group needs to be implemented.
