Some AdWords advertisers may find their ads appearing with capitalization that differs from what was approved in their AdWords account, as Google apparently tests capitalization variations to see how it affects click-through rates. One Search Engine Land reader, Nilaye Thakrar, search engine marketing manager at Canada’s Workopolis , sent us an example. Some words that had their initial letter capitalized in the approved ad were shown with a lower case initial letter, but other words had the upper case initial letter intact.
If you’re a small business looking to reach a customers online or boost website traffic and sales, you need to learn about Google AdWords . Simply put, Google AdsWords is a form of pay-per-click (PPC) advertising; a service that lets you create and run ads for your business on Google, which is pretty much the portal to the Internet. Google AdWords is a different game than traditional advertising, but once you understand the basics, it’s actually a much better return on investment. First, your reach on the Internet is far greater than in traditional forms such as display or print ads. Second, your ads are better targeted towards potential customers through relevant searches. Third, while tracking the reach of television or print advertising is difficult, advertisers on the Internet can track the number of impressions an ad gets (how many people see it) and how many visits their business web site receives from particular ads.
It’s one of our guiding principles that data beats opinion. With that in mind, our marketing team has put a lot of effort into posing interesting questions—How do new mothers use the Internet? When do people really start their holiday shopping? What trends typify today’s Hispanic web user?
