1. Generate A List Of Relevant And Targeted Keywords
While working on a PPC campaign, it is very important to set focus about what you want to achieve with your campaign. Don’t get overwhelmed about driving traffic to your site without even knowing what action you actually want from people to take when they visit your site. If you’re offering various products or services, don’t forget to make a relevant list of targeted keywords around them to brainstorm how people will make a search for products and services you’re providing. Sometime it is known as a best practice to ask people around you that on what search terms they will search for these things. Now, take this list to Google Keyword Planner or any of the tools you use for keyword researching and find possible keywords around them to make a group of them. Also, give a close look to the keywords not relevant to your target search terms to use them for negative keywords list later.
2. Separate Targeted Keywords Into Ad Groups
Once, you have done with your keyword list, move to assemble them in different ad groups according to their themes. Such as, keywords around “Commercial Photography” must be put in different ad groups, same as make a separate ad group for keywords around “wedding Photography” respectively. Also remember, themes could be grounded on many diverse concepts such as product attribute, product type, geography etc.
