Learn Google Adwords (PPC) Metrics

google adwords

To enhance your knowledge on Google Adwords these metrics are of great significance. These metrics will help you to know how your ads are performing in real time so you can easily track if they are achieving the goals you have set for your business growth. What goal you have set for your advertisement determine which metrics you should focus.

Visits 

This is a visit to your site.  A person may view just one or many pages when they visit.

Impressions 

This is how many times your ad is displayed for a given keyword in the given time period.

Clicks 

This is how many times an ad was clicked. In general, this corresponds with Visits, but they may not always match.  For instance, if your ad is displayed but you also show up in the organic listings and someone clicks that link, this will result in a visit without a click.  In another case, a searcher may already be on your website and perform another search in a separate tab or window.  If they click an ad there, it will result in a click, but not an additional visit.

Cost 

This is the cost of a particular keyword or ad group for the given time.

CTR 
(Click Through Rate)- This metric is computed by taking the number of clicks and dividing by the number of impressions. About 1.75% is the average among all industries, but this will depend on the uniqueness of your keyword.

CPC
(Cost Per Click) – This is the average cost per click for a keyword or an ad group.  It is calculated by taking the Total Cost and dividing the number of clicks.

Conversion
A conversion happens when someone clicks your ad and then takes an action that you’ve defined as valuable to your business, such as an online purchase or a call to your business from a mobile phone.

Conversion Rate
The average number of conversions per ad click, shown as a percentage.
Conversion rates are calculated by simply taking the number of conversions and dividing that by the number of total ad clicks that can be tracked to a conversion during the same time period. For example, if you had 50 conversions from 1,000 clicks, your conversion rate would be 5%, since 50 ÷ 1,000 = 5%.
ROI 
Return on Investment – This is computed by dividing RPC(Remote Procedure Call) by Cost, and will result in -100% if there are no Revenue values assigned.

Margin 
This is the margin you have earned based on the Cost and the Revenue.  If the Revenue is 0, the Margin will be 0.00%

CPA
Cost per acquisition is a method of advertising whereby the advertiser only pays when an advert delivers an acquisition. Moreover, CPA is very effective for an advertiser to pay because they only pay when the advertising has met its purpose.

Average Position
The average position helps explain where your ad ranks compared to other ads.

Locations: Target your ads to almost any geographic area. Specify countries, territories, regions, cities, or custom areas where you want your ads to show.

Languages: Target your ads by your customers’ language preference. For example, only customers whose Google Adwords interface language is Spanish will see ads in a campaign targeted to Spanish.

Networks: Determine where on the Internet your ads will show. Ads can appear on Google Adwords’s Search Network or Display Network, or both.

Devices: Campaigns target all types of devices by default. Note that if you have a “Display Network only” campaign, you can target specific operating systems, device models, as well as carriers and wireless networks. To see these options, go to the “Devices” section on your Settings tab, and click advanced mobile and tablet options. If you have a different campaign type and would like to use these targeting options, you might consider creating a “Display Network only” campaign.

Bidding option: Choose automatic or manual bidding for ad clicks (Max. CPC). Advanced options let you choose to pay per thousand impressions (CPM bidding) or set a cost-per-acquisition bid (Conversion Optimizer, CPA bidding).

Tip

You can increase or decrease your bids to gain more control over when and where your ad is shown by setting bid adjustments.

Budget: Adjust your campaign’s daily budget at any time.

Delivery method: Choose either standard or accelerated delivery for your daily budget to determine how quickly your ads are shown each day if your campaign is limited by budget.

“Target and bid”
Restricts your ads to showing the targeting method you’ve selected, like keywords
Allows you to set bids for individual targeting, like $2.00 for buy soccer balls.

Based on your Display keywords, your ads can now show on pages about soccer. However, you want to reach soccer fans specifically, so you target the affinity audience Soccer Fans and set both targeting methods to “Target and bid.”

“Bid only”
Doesn’t restrict your ads to showing the targeting method you’ve selected
Allows you to set bids for individual targeting, like $2.00 for Soccer Fans

Using the same example as above, let’s say you have a preference for your ads to show to soccer enthusiasts but don’t want to limit your ads to this audience.
You decide to do the following:
Set Display keywords as “Target and bid” so your ads are shown based on your keywords.
Set “Interests & Remarketing” to “Bid only” with an increased bid on Soccer Fans to increase the chances your ads will show to people with that affinity audience.
