Keyword’s relevancy in ads
People search for queries on Google about their health, electronic items, books, etc.. For example, shampoo for hair growth. On search engine page results, they are left with a lot of solutions. There lie your ads on side columns and top. It will rise on top if your keywords match with those searched by users. As your ads are likely to be seen by users, your site visits will increase.
A landing page is the next important thing for the seamless journey of users. If users find landing to be irrelevant, bounce back is likely to happen. Users want instant solutions to their problems online. If you don’t provide then the same they will jump to another site to seek it.
The keywords you used in your ad must contain in your landing page too to keep the relevancy maintained.
You know where you have to show your ads but you must also know where not to. In Google Adwords, it is a strong way to avoid unnecessary expenditures by not showing ads to an irrelevant audience. For the sake of this purpose, you need to create a list of negative keywords.
Keyword research is another important aspect of the desired results. It is just not about keywords only but how it is used in ads also matters. Keep your ads short and crisp. Don’t make it over-informative otherwise it will increase the discomfort of users.
