The Result: Businesses reach their audience at the

“floral arrangements” or “tulips”
Negative exact match + Broad match
• Only show the ad for variations of my keyword
• E.g. “flowers” and –[flowers] may show for
“flowers delivered” but not “flowers”
Dynamic Keyword Insertion
Improve the CTR of your ads by making the ad text
more relevant to the keyword
Keyword:

Site Targeting
Use the site tool to find sites where your target users are.
Placement Performance Reports
The Placement Performance report provides increased transparency
and control to help you meet your ROI objectives on the Google content
network.
Domain and URL level reporting
-
See the sites where your ads appeared, at the domain or URL
level
Site-by-site* performance metrics
-
Understand how your ads are performing on each site through
click, impression, cost and conversion metrics
Special category reporting
-
See performance metrics broken out by categories such as
Domain ads or Error page ads
*At this time, site-by-site metrics are only available for content pages. Sites participating in the AdSense for domains
(AFD) and AdSense for error pages (AFE) programs are reported in aggregate until site-level reporting is available in
the future.
Sample Report: New Columns
The ‘Domain’ column
shows you the domain
of the site where your ad
appeared.
Placement Performance Report Best Practices
Optimize for success
1. Re-evaluate keyword lists and ad text
•
Are your ads appearing on irrelevant pages? Take steps to optimize keyword
lists and ads.
•
Consider creating content-only campaigns to tailor ad groups specifically for
content.
2. Utilize the site targeting feature
•
Site targeting may be used to directly target well-performing sites
- Please note that site targeting utilizes CPM bidding
3. Consider the site exclusion feature
•
Use the site exclusion tool to exclude sites which are not converting well
•
Avoid excluding sites based on subjective judgments on content or site
quality
- Page content is dynamic and may change from the time users viewed it to the time
you viewed the report
- Sites or pages you don’t find to be relevant, users may find to be useful

are typically below average
AdWords advertisers can engage in dayparting by leveraging Ad Scheduling
