Frequently Asked Questions

Bid amounts. Especially in a competitive space, it can be difficult to always show up in the first spot. Depending on CPCs and competition, sometimes the first spot is not always the best in terms of ROI.

More real estate. When you bid on your brand name you have the opportunity to show more listings on your brand search result page. You will also push competitors down the page that may be bidding on your brand name thereby increasing your share of voice. Dominating the top of your brand’s SERP allows you to control what users see relating to your brand and makes it much more burdensome and expensive on your competitor’s that are buying your brand terms.

Your competitor may be directly bidding on your brand term or they are more broadly targeting the same set and the search engine identified your brand term as a related keyword. Having a healthy budget allocated to your own brand keywords will keep your competitors from showing up above you when someone is searching for you.

Typically that comes down to budget. If you don’t have enough budget to last throughout the day, your ads will only be shown every so often to ensure your budget lasts the entire day. Other reasons may be you are not in the geographically targeted area, your bids are too low, you are utilizing dayparting and searching during off time, or the search engine has deemed them irrelevant to you because you’ve seen the ads too many times without clicking on them.
Paid search is often the best performing channel because users are actively searching for what you have to offer. Social and display ads, however, should remain an important part of your overall advertising strategy.

Generally, a good bounce rate should be between 10% and 30%. However, this can vary depending on a variety of factors, including the vertical, offer, competition, landing page, the action you want users to take when they arrive to your site, and much more.

The best measure of success is quality traffic. We look at all key performance indicators to determine this. Is the bounce rate good? Are we seeing key shopping activities taking place? Are we generating good leads?
First, you must consider the action you want users to take. If you are running a direct response campaign a landing page may be a good fit. If you’re selling a product that users may prefer to browse the inventory of then you may want to send users directly to your inventory.
Paid search ads show in prime real estate, above organic listings. Users often click an ad which answers their needs, without ever scrolling to view organic listings. You are in total control and can make an immediate impact with paid search, without needing to worry about search engine algorithm changes. Whether your business is large or small, paid search allows you to reach customers more immediately and customize your campaigns on the fly.
