Paid Search Frequently Asked Questions

What is PPC?

Pay-Per-Click (PPC) advertising is a digital marketing strategy where you pay a fee each time someone clicks on your ad. You set a budget and bid on relevant keywords, and your ads appear at the top of search engine results pages or other designated online platforms.

Our data-driven approach and audience targeting expertise increase the chances of your ideal customers clicking on your ads. We craft compelling ad copy, choose high-intent keywords, and optimize your campaigns for maximum click-through rates.

How much does a Paid Search Campaign Cost?

Your PPC campaign cost depends on various factors like your industry, target keywords, budget, and campaign goals. We work with you to create a budget that aligns with your objectives and maximize your return on investment.

How do I budget for my PPC Campaigns?

We recommend starting with a realistic budget based on your industry benchmarks and desired goals. As the campaign progresses, we continuously monitor performance and adjust your budget to optimize spending and maximize return.

What is the difference between ad impressions and ad clicks?

An impression counts each time your ad appears on a search engine results page or other platform, regardless of whether someone clicks on it. A click occurs when someone actually clicks on your ad and visits your website or landing page. So, impressions indicate your ad’s visibility, while clicks measure actual user engagement.

How do I ensure good campaign performance?

While the magic ingredients differ slightly by industry, good paid search campaign performance generally boils down to:

  • Targeting the right audience: Define your ideal customer and pinpoint relevant keywords they search for.
  • Crafting compelling ad copy: Grab attention with clear headlines, persuasive offers, and strong calls to action.
  • Optimizing landing pages: Ensure seamless transitions from ad to landing page, offering relevant information and clear conversion paths.
  • Continuously monitoring and adjusting: Track campaign data, analyze performance, and make strategic adjustments to maximize results.
  • Partnering with an experienced agency: Leverage experts like Spark Digital Group to navigate the complexities and optimize your campaigns for sustained success.
How often should Paid Search accounts, keywords, and negative keywords be reviewed?

Regular review and optimization are crucial for PPC success. We recommend:

  • Daily monitoring: Keep an eye on key metrics like impressions, clicks, conversions, and costs.
  • Weekly performance review: Analyze data in-depth, identify opportunities for improvement, and adjust settings accordingly.
  • Monthly keyword & negative keyword review: Evaluate keyword performance, add relevant terms, and refine negative keywords to optimize targeting.
Where do PPC ads appear?

PPC ads can appear in various locations depending on the platform you choose:

  • Search engine results pages (SERPs): Above, below, or alongside organic search results on Google, Bing, etc.
  • Social media platforms: Sponsored posts or placements within social media feeds.
  • Display networks: Banner ads, sidebar placements, and other visual ads on websites across the internet.
  • Mobile apps: Targeted ads within specific apps used by your target audience.
Why am I not seeing my PPC ads?

Several factors could contribute to your ads not appearing:

  • Low budget: Your daily or campaign budget might be exhausted, limiting ad visibility.
  • Keyword competition: Highly competitive keywords may require higher bids to secure top placements.
  • Targeting settings: Your targeting parameters might be too narrow, excluding potential viewers.
  • Account issues: Campaign settings or technical issues could be hindering ad display.
Why is my cost-per-click increasing?

A rising cost-per-click can be due to:

  • Increased competition: More advertisers bidding on your chosen keywords can drive up bidding costs.
  • Changes in user behavior: Shifts in search patterns or seasonality can affect keyword demand and pricing.
  • Targeting adjustments: Expanding your targeting parameters might reach a broader, but potentially more expensive, audience.
What is brand bidding?

Brand bidding involves bidding on your own brand name as a keyword. This ensures your ads appear whenever someone searches for your company, providing greater control over the customer experience and potentially capturing valuable clicks from competitors’ campaigns.
