10 ways to Improve Keyword Quality Score in Google Adwords

10 ways to Improve Keyword Quality Score in Google Adwords

Quality Score is one of the most important numbers in your AdWords account. Google generally defines it as a measurement of the usefulness of your ads to the searcher, but there’s a lot more to it. Quality Score is a dynamically generated variable; every single time a search query matches one of your keywords, AdWords recalculates Quality Score.

Here are few important hacks that assist you to improve your quality score, check out them:

1) Use site link extensions. These can be exactly what the searcher is looking for, which means they are more likely to click.

2) Use call extensions. Adding a phone number as a call to action may be exactly what people want.

3) Add location extensions. Adding your address info is likely to appeal for local searches.

4) Use product listing ads when you are an e-commerce store. They will add images to your ads, and make them much more appealing.

5) Don’t worry about negative keyword optimization as much for Quality Score (QS). Based on my research, Google only considers exact match keywords for QS. Negative keywords do matter though, and you really do need to pay attention to them.

6) Avoid using exclamation points. People seem to think they will get you higher CTR.

7) Use numbers in your ads. This breaks the pattern of text and grabs attention.

8) Look at the poor performing ads. If you are running tests on different ads for the same ad groups and keywords, and some are getting a lower CTR, then look to pausing them.

9) Ensure landing page quality. Google says these are all quality factors for the landing pages:

  • Relevant and Original Content
  • Transparency and Navigability

Note: Even though the quality is not officially part of the QS score, it is good to assume it matters, and then work to improve it.

10) Revisit the structure of your campaigns. Could you increase QS by changing which ads will appear for which keywords? You may want to pause ad groups that are simply not working for you. Look at best-converting ads and then take the language and approach from one and apply it to others.

3 Digital Marketing tips to boost up your business

Data Driven Campaigns:

We all are in the age of big data and real-time analytics. Where every business wants their marketers to think more like data scientists and build their campaigns around customer analytics and real-time data. Hunches and lazy due diligence no longer have a place. Roughly in US 61% of senior  Marketing executives surveyed by Insights Reports said that data-driven marketing is crucial for success in this hyper-competitive global economy. This means leveraging the numbers for advanced segmentation, automated A/B testing, marketing campaign strategy, and better customer understanding.

Influencer Marketing:

As every Marketer agree that Content marketing still is king; Smart Insights research found that content marketing is viewed as the digital marketing activity with the greatest commercial impact in 2016, with 22 percent of businesses saying it is most important (the second most important elements were marketing automation and big data, unsurprisingly). Without effective distribution, however, content marketing is just noise. Bloggers with big followings realize this, and promoting company content through influencer marketing has now become big business and a leading marketing tactic that separates successful marketing from the rest.

A full 85 percent of bloggers will take money for writing blog posts that specifically benefit a brand, according to research by influencer marketing firm, GroupHigh, and many influencers now expect it. Independent and respected bloggers are now important links in the content marketing chain.

Marketing Automation:

I would suggest using Zoho.com which offers an all-in-one CRM that includes the advanced marketing automation features like Google Adwords, In-chat option, Mass Mailing etc.., and it is used by SME’s. It helps to track both Offline sales & Digital Marketing initiatives, The price point is also not expensive comparing with other Marketing automation tools available in the market. I would also recommend online Marketers to use a tool called “Intercom” to give a personalized approach to online users by showing them custom messages on the landing page.

There will be no more notifications regarding Penguin update hereafter as Google has made penguin as real time now. Real-time penguin is great & will create less impact on sites, especially if your competitors are ruining your business & doing negative SEO onto your website. Because, as soon as Google discovers that a harmful link pointing your website is removed or disavowed, the Penguin algorithm will process it in real time, and you’ll recover from a Penguin penalty very quickly. This is a positive aspect of a Real-time Penguin, whereas the negative aspect is worse. As soon as the harmful link is created, or in other words as soon as a noxious link starts pointing your website you’ll be penalised & chances are there you’d lose SERP rankings very quickly.

Once you discover any malignancy, right then take an action. Contact the owner of the site which has given a back-link to your site, ask them to remove, in case you don’t get any positive response then immediately disavow the link.

In case you have already been penalised with Real Time Penguin, then take an immediate step & disavow all the harmful links. With this, you should be able to recover from the penalty. Yet if you don’t see the recovery, then start building several trusted links. For instance, Blog Posting, Guest Posting, Directory Submission, Forum Posting, etc. all these you can make as an immediate step.

New changes in Google Keyword Planner

New changes in Google Keyword Planner

Google Keyword Planner an important keyword discovery tool, most SEO experts swing to Google’s Keyword Planner tool to find their important & most convertible keywords when they are about to create blog posts and other site content. Sadly, Google has now limited the usage of this tool. Google says, it’ll help them to keep the bots away which had overused the tool making it slow. With this update, inactive AdWords accounts & the accounts with least monthly spending would now face difficulty.

In other words, if you are not spending on AdWords frequently then you may not be able to view exact search volume for a particular keyword. You’ll just see the range, for example, 1K to 10K, this will give you very little knowledge. The minimum amount need to spend on Adwords for keeping it active is so far unclear, Google has not set any minimal value of spending.

If you rely on both PPC as well as SEO then you better keep your Adwords account active by spending some amount on a monthly basis, in case you are not doing any PPC activities then having a premium version of third party keyword research tool will be pretty useful. You can make use of several other party keyword research tools such as Semrush, MOZ, WordStream, Ubersuggest, etc. The benefit of using these tools is they not only help you finding keywords, but also assist in finding your competitor & moreover you can do competitor analysis & also it allows finding the backlinks of your competitor’s site. Lots of useful data can be collected with these third party utilities.

In case you are running out of a tight budget and you are not in the position to spend money, then better share Google Keyword Planner tool. Ask any of your acquaintances for allowing you to make use of their Google Adwords account. This is one of best options you can go with. Without spending money, you can access important data for doing SEO.

There are several other ways by following which you can collect keyword ideas such as using Google Trends & exploring keywords, making use of Quora for keyword generation. And also the “Related Searches” at the bottom of Google SERP. Using the keywords that are shown at the bottom of SERP is a fantastic idea, most SEO’s ignoring this trick because of poor knowledge about it. But these keywords prove to be more helpful, as compared with the keywords that are drawn using other methods.
