Some mistakes can jeopardize your Google Ads and Bing campaigns’ success. These mistakes can be easily corrected with a PPC management company.

Below is a list of PPC errors we frequently make and how campaign management services can help.

Sending visitors to your homepage

Sending traffic to your homepage is one of the biggest mistakes in PPC. This is because the page with the highest bounce rates will be referred to. Usually, the homepage doesn’t contain the information the user needs, so the user has to search for it. This could result in them losing interest in your company and their potential business.

Instead, take them to a landing site with specific information that is related to their search. Google’s quality scores are a great tool for Google Ads. These scores can be used to determine the page to which the advert should be sent. If you don’t already have a landing site for the search term, create one.

A PPC management company marketing can ensure that your landing pages are relevant and informative by either creating a new landing page or selecting one already in place.

Bidding for position number one

Although being number one is the ideal position for everyone, it may not be the best strategy for your PPC campaign. While being number one will drive more traffic to your website, it might not be the most cost-effective. It can be costly to get the top spot, and it may not be worth the cost of the leads you receive.

You may not get as many clicks if you choose position 2, or 3. However, they will be cheaper and of higher quality.

Missing Extensions

Extensions allow you to expand your advert by adding additional information. This will make your search results page more dominant. Extensions include additional website links and phone numbers that allow the searcher to get the exact information they need, but also give them the option to explore further. A common mistake is that people miss out on this opportunity or don’t utilize it to its full extent.
