Google Ad Terms to Know and Understand

These Google ad terms are important to know, and even more important to understand. So, let’s get started.

Keywords

When you use Google to search for something, you use a number of keywords and phrases - and you may not even know it. Indeed, Google returns a range of results that match the users intent, aligning with their wants, desires and questions.

When choosing your keywords, you want to base them on what queries you want to exhibit your products alongside.

Negative Keywords

The complete opposite to keywords, negative keywords are words and phrases you don’t want to rank for. Once selected, Google will exclude you from the auction for these keywords. Predominantly, these words are semi-related to your product or fall outside the realm of what you offer altogether.

Quality Score

Your Quality Score determines your AdRank. Your Quality Score is based on the perceived quality and relevance of your advertisement, and Google measures such metrics by analysing how many people click on your ad.

You can improve your Quality Score by improving three things:

  • The relevance of your keywords
  • Your ad copy and CTAs
  • The user experience on your website and landing pages

Indeed, you should prioritise your quality score as the higher it is, the lower your acquisition costs will be and the better ranking you’ll achieve.

Keyword Auction

When entering a keyword auction - just like any other auction, a bid represents the amount of money you’re willing to spend for a single click on a keyword of your choice. These bids are important as they will dictate where your ads will appear in Google’s search results.

Location

When first setting up your Google ads campaign, you’ll be asked to select a geographical area where your ad will show up. Indeed, there are three things to consider:

  • Shop or Storefront - If you have a physical shop, you should set your location to a radius that encompasses your shop and slightly further afield.
  • E-commerce Store - If you have an e-ccomerce website and a physical product, you should set your location to the places where you ship to.
  • Worldwide Product - If you sell a service or product that is accessible worldwide, then your location should reflect your global appeal.

One thing is for certain, your location metrics will play an important role in your ad placement. What’s more, Google’s main goal is always to display the most relevant results to users within their area.

Types of Google Ads

There are a number of Google ads you can choose from, ranging from in-game App Ads to simple Shopping Ads.

Google Search Ads

Google Search Ad campaigns involve detailed text-based adverts that describe the page the advert leads to on Google. You can add lots of information such as prices, size and shapes. These enable you to advertise a product based on specific keywords ad go through to the page on your website you define.

Google Shopping Ads

Shopping campaigns involve detailed product descriptions, be it price, product photography, or size and shape. managed through Google Merchant Centre, Google Shopping Ads enable you to advertise a product based on specific keywords rather than the entire brand and its back catalogue.

Display Ads

Predominantly image-based, pay-per-click ads, Display Ads position eye-catching, vibrant content in front of the right audiences that are aligned with your brand image. Sometimes it’s as simple as producing quality content and getting it in front of the right people.

App Ads

With Google App Ads you can run multiple campaigns that encourage users to purchase your app based on their apparent use of the same app or similar ones. What’s more, unlike other campaigns, you don’t design an app ad - you bid on it. Google then does the work for you.

Video Ads

Mostly associated with YouTube, Video Ads are displayed before, during and sometimes after a video.

It’s always worth remembering that YouTube is a search engine, meaning keywords have the same desired impact as they would on Google. Therefore, don’t neglect things such as bidding strategies, keyword research and demographics, for example.

Discovery Ads

Discovery Ads are ‘native’ ads that appear in various Google feeds. Advertisers must create a specific Discovery Ads campaign, however, these same campaigns work just like Google’s own in-market audience targeting campaigns do.
So, if it’s good enough for the world’s biggest internet platform, then it’s good enough for you.

Any of these campaign types are good in their own right and are dedicated to providing either a good ROI or taking your brand to the next level in terms of awareness. Whatever your short or long-term goals maybe, one of these ad types are sure to have the desired impact you crave.

Targeting Options

With Google Ads, there are a number of audience targeting options to explore:

Demographics

Demographics - With demographic targeting, you can target your product based on everything including location, age, gender and even device type. This gives way to an extremely focused approach.

Geotargeting

Customers can now message with businesses in more ways with Google Maps Jan 2021 - Google Ads

Geotargeting - Geotargeting lets you target your ads to specific locations. Unlike demographic targeting, with geotargeting you can target ads to appear in specific postcodes, never mind areas.

In-Market 

In-Market - In-Market lets you target users who have been searching for similar products to yours. These users may be more convertible because they are actively looking to make a purchase or have already done so previously.

Custom Intent

Custom Intent - This targeting option depends on strong keyword research and a talented copywriter. Choose words related to what might push people to engage with your website or landing page. What’s more, Custom Intent lets you add URLs, apps and even YouTube videos tailored to your demographics’ values and interests

Remarketing

Remarketing - Remarketing enables you to target users that have previously interacted with your ads, website or app. If they’ve clicked on your ads or visited your website, then the user enters your sales pipeline and thus, gives you a chance to market them and close a sale.

Topic

Topic - Topic target is exactly how it seems. Google Ads searches the web for content and considers everything from language to link structure, determining the main theme/ topic of every website and targets your ads accordingly.

Placement

Placement - Placement targeting is similar to topic targeting, however, rather than searching the internet for content, topic targeting simply markets your ads based on the websites your audience has previously visited. This strategy does not require any keywords.

Keywords

Keywords - In contrast, content keyword targeting is solely based on choosing the best, most relevant words for your product and targeting the users who search for those words. Backed up by tailoring your demographic, keyword targeting is highly impactful.

 

Targeting your ads is an important part of any successful campaign that wishes to make an impact. Indeed, targeting your ad increases the chances for ROI by tenfold.
