Google only allows an AdWords account to use one voucher. If you have multiple vouchers from different friends, use the most valuable one. The only way to get around it appears to be to create multiple AdWords accounts and use one voucher per account. Doing so will not put you in the Google graces of Google and your accounts will be shut down if they catch ...

A hyphen in Google's Keyword Tool does not mean 0 results, it means the data is either incomplete or the search volume is below 10. It is rather common to discover keywords that do not contain the full search volume data. It is also important to note that it is an estimator and should not be considered 100% correct but should give you an idea. If we ...

Maybe your site was not indexed by Google, and the AdWords campaign led the site to be indexed. Now, a search on Google will find you, where you wouldn't show before? Or it could be return visitors. They click on your adwords ad, visit site and want to go back. But they cant remember the direct link so they search for your name on google and find you that ...

This is entirely allowed within AdWords unless they are mentioning a trademarked term or brand name of yours in their ad copy. AdWords trademark policy. Although this year, Google did release a new policy that allowed advertisers to bid on trademarked terms for the first time.

Google doesn't have unlimited inventory. Only a certain number of people actually perform the searches that you are bidding on every day. Other people may also be bidding more than you and you ad is not showing up as often or as high as you would like.

If you've already checked your Ad to ensure it is configured correctly (target geographic region and times, daily budgets, keyword bids etc) then perhaps you should check the keywords have been specified inside square brackets [] to ensure exact phrase matching rather than the default broad matching.

Google as far as I know does not have a inbuilt flash maker that will convert a series of images and sound to a Flash Compatible file, so with this said you will need to make your own. When you upload a image to Adwords you can see it says 'Acceptable Formats: PNG, JPEG, SWF and so on.. the important file format to take notice off here is .swf - this is a ...

Generally the step 1 you refer to generates a lot of keywords that are marginally relevant or keywords that have no chance of converting, these keywords will still likely drive clicks so step 2 helps you save some (or a lot) of money when you begin your campaigns. It doesn't take long to weed out those keywords that are obviously not helpful as well as ...

Will I be able to bid on those keywords and have my ad display in the search result or will Google only allow ads if there is sufficient competition? You will be able to bid on those keywords. If Google estimates 5c/click is this real or will it be more like 5$/click? There is a difference between what the Keyword Planner estimates and the ...

Google allows bids on keywords with no competition but it sets a minimum bid that you are allowed to make. The minimum bid depends on your quality score for that ad. Since quality score is mainly determined by click through rate, your initial minimum bid may be high until Google has enough data to assign you a good quality score. When bidding on a ...

I accidentally managed to use two vouchers on one AdWords account: while creating it I entered a voucher code, got an error message and entered another voucher code. After the first payment (which is a requirement for those vouchers), both voucher codes were added to my account. However, I can't add new voucher codes to this account anymore. This trick only ...

So for 1, you would setup the landing page as the goal, not the link. For 2, that's precisely what the adwords conversion does. Go to Tools - Conversions - +conversion. More info: https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/1722054?hl=en (The link you posted summarizes it pretty good.)

As long as there's a common email address between the two accounts, you should be able to link them. In other words, either your Analytics email address should have access to the AdWords account, or your ad manager's AdWords email address should have access to your Analytics account. If you'd rather not give access to your Analytics account, it'd be ...

Yes this is easy to do in Analytics using event goals. So what you would do is to configure both confirmation pages to fire an event upon successful submission. Then in Analytics you create a goal which is based upon that event. This way the one goal will count both contact forms. See ...

If you're sending visitors to a different site / booking engine and you have not implemented cross-domain tracking, then yes the visit will break and the rest of the pages won't be attributed to your AdWords traffic. Another way to confirm is to look at the Referring sites. If you find your own site in that report, it's an indicator that the code is not ...

You can use the lists via Adwords even if you do not use Analytics with Analytics you can use segments to create lists, which means that you have a higher level of granularity (which in turn means it's much easier to shoot yourself in the foot by creating lists that do not contain enough users) Note that AFAIK remarketing lists are not yet available in ...

The good news for you is that it is usually far cheaper for you to bid on your own trademarks than it is for competition to do so. In my experience, you can usually bid on your own trademarks and get the top position for 1 cent or 2 cents. This is because: The click through rate will be higher for you because you are the official site The content on ...

Here is an article that addresses that question: ...you can double your traffic by being at the top of paid and organic results. That figure of doubling comes from Google's reps, so take it with a grain of salt. However, in my experience, it helps you to bid on the terms and pay for traffic even if you are #1 in organic. I've never seen it be twice ...

Sadly the nature of the beast is that they are never going to line up exactly the adword tracking looks to be server side, where as the google analytics you have on your site is reliant on people's browsers and javascript. But is is not all hopeless people with javascript / google analytics disabled will show in adwords but not ga if your site is running ...

When you use the minus sign, it makes the following word a "negative keyword". Here is an article about it that states: You need to add a minus sign before each keyword to add them as negative keywords in Google AdWords. For example, if you are selling only cameras and not camera bags, adding "-bags" as a negative keyword will not trigger your ad when ...

Exact Keywords This should be pretty obvious but this is when people type exactly the same keywords as your targetted ad, for example if you pay for an ad that is Buy A Pet Rabbit Today and then someone types exact into Google then this becomes an exact search. Your add will only be revealed when they type the exact search. Phrase Match If you bid on Pet ...

To answer your question (sort of). I would used AdWords conversion code. Paste each code from each account onto your conversion page one after the other (if it is page). Not only will that work - but you won't have to import the goal to AdWords, and you'll see the conversion data far quicker in AdWords.

I am completely agree with your first assumption, by limiting budget you are looking potential clicks from AdWords campaign. If you are having limited budget, I suggest running your ads at full budget for at least one week. Then, analyze the traffic, click, time of click and best converting keywords. Filter out best converting data from above analysis and ...
