Pay Per Click June 10th, 2013
If you are using Google Ads to promote a small to medium business, then every penny counts so it is important to ensure that your ad groups are as focused as possible. Using negative keywords to qualify your campaign can make the difference between attracting someone who is looking to buy your product and someone who is looking for a job! If you are a local business and want to make sure that you are paying for the right type of clicks in your Google Ads or PPC marketing campaigns, then consider using one of the negative keyword lists that I’ve provided below.
Note: Some of the negative keywords provided may not be relevant to your campaigns, so be sure to use your discretion when adding any of them to Google Ads.
This is a list of keywords used at our internet marketing agency. They simply don’t belong in any campaign and should be added by default to all of your campaigns.
These are searches that someone looking for a job would typically include in any search query. By adding these negative keywords, you can eliminate job seekers from finding (and clicking) your Google ads.
These keywords would typically be included in a search query by someone looking to upgrade their skills i.e. not to buy your product and/or service.
This list is essential for anyone with an eCommerce website. Reduce the amount of window shoppers and tire kickers who click on your ads by adding these negative keywords.
After spending hours crafting an effective Google Ads campaign, it can be easy to forget about adding negative keywords to that shiny new campaign. By forgetting to add them, you could be wasting hundreds of dollars per month in unqualified leads to your business.
