Pay Per Click Keyword Matching Tips

Try keyword matching options to narrow your searches.
With keyword matching options, you can refine your searches even further
by specifying whether you want your ad to appear only for certain searches
on your keywords.
• Broad match. Simply enter your keyword: Home Business
Ad shows when users search on the keywords Home and Business,
regardless of other search terms used or of the order in which they
are entered.
• Exact match. Use brackets around your keyword: [Home Business]
Ad shows when users search only on the phrase Home Business. Ad
will not show if red Home Business is searched.
• Phrase match. Use quotes around your keyword: "Home Business"
Ad shows when the phrase Home Business is searched, but search can
contain other terms. Ad will show for internet Home Business but not for
business for home.
• Negative keyword. Use a dash before your keyword: -internet
If your keyword is Home Business and your negative keyword is internet,
your ad will not show if a user searches on internet Home Business.

Of the 20 Million Websites listed
less than 10,000 generate traffic !

It is estimated that an average of 2.7 Billion dollars was spent on internet advertising in the first quarter of 2007 by TNS Media Intelligence, a US provider of Advertising information and statistics. According to TNS CEO Steven Fredericks, there has been a dramatic shift away from traditional print and television advertising and towards online advertising, with television showing a decline of 2.7 %. Small businesses are following this trend, but without fully understanding the search engine process their online campaigns are nothing more than glorified yellow pages ads in a directory of millions of listings.

To illustrate the point, online advertising specialists 1st Page Agency conducted an internet search for the words ‘Carpet Cleaning’ and ‘Plumber’ on Yahoo, Google and MSN , each yielding an average of 16 million websites per listing, which leaves small business operators out in the cold when it comes to internet marketing and advertising.

Search Engine Optimization is one way for small businesses to try navigate their way through the ocean of online completion, as is online networking, but most small operators do not have the internal IT infrastructure or budget to include either of these tools in their daily routine, and staying on top of the online marketing game demands daily attention.

Google’s ‘Adwords’ work much like the stock exchange with daily flux in the demand and supply of the ‘word’ market. What this means is that advertisers bid on the words they want Google to list them under and set a budget for the right to be listed under these words. If a competitor places a higher bid on the same word their ad will automatically default to the higher ranking. Other factors such as relevance to market and costing structure also determine ranking on Google.

1st Page Agency CEO Steven Bermeister says: “In trying to keep up with the online competition, small businesses make the mistake of investing thousands of dollars on professional looking websites which in all probability will never be seen. Small businesses need to differentiate between marketing their services and marketing their websites”. Of course the website should be well designed promoting the unique aspect of the product or service using benchmark marketing strategies, and the operation should be smooth, but that’s the easy part of the formula. Connecting to ones specific target market is the real challenge. A low budget ad that reaches its market would generate more profit than the most expensive ad that floats around cyberspace forever unseen.

In fact by using a search engines unique ability to filter out extraneous traffic, small businesses can better match their product or service with their customers search. If a searcher is looking for a camera in Mullumbimby, a well targeted internet ad will show up under the relevant words, ‘camera’ and Mullumbimby’. This is the outcome that small businesses are looking for in online advertising - a specific, local relevant match. In this way small businesses can turn the internet around to work for them instead of feeling
overwhelmed by it.
