Account structure is a vital part of achieving paid search performance. It guarantees that keywords, ad messaging, and landing pages are prioritized in alignment with the business’s objectives. But, it is equally crucial for the structure to be as helpful as possible for the most effective reporting and optimization. One should go beyond the initial setup and design an agile structure that will allow for efficient continuous maintenance. While some engine features vary, particularly between those in non-English speaking areas, most have the same general aspects. The below best practices focus on setting up campaigns and ad groups. As you can see, a good structure is directly tied to your marketing strategy and business needs.

Campaign set-up best practices

When determining what and how many campaigns to have, as a reference, use scampaign settings and consider what searches you will want to have the best coverage. Targeting and money are the most critical ones. It is advisable to build up a new campaign for each combination of targeting and budget demands for the cleanest reporting. This will quickly track how much is spent and what performance you obtain from all sections. In terms of coverage, it is best to completely fund your brand terms followed by supplier brand terms and anything likely to create a high ROI.

 Where should your ads show?

First, determine where do you want your adverts to run. Test what engine network you should run and what area and languages. It is frequently thought that adverts would show up on search results. But, in other circumstances, you may desire to run on syndicated websites or even the display networks of the supplied engine. Take a moment to check the network you need and select the proper setting. For geography, it is tempting to have the same footprint that your firm has with other media. But, your search engine demand may differ from where your offline sales occur. Take a moment to examine where search engine demand is likeliest to come from. Then, set up a couple of specific campaigns for your main markets. If budget allows, also build one more “catch all” movement to cover residual traffic in the rest of the conceivable places where your consumers may come from. For example, a Boston shop may design campaigns for the Boston metropolitan area, nearby counties, New England, and the rest of the U.S. While selecting English or all languages is tempting, conduct research where the bulk of the traffic will originate from and if your website completely supports that. If you could target various languages, develop many campaigns for each language version. For example, if in our earlier example, the Boston-based business sold flags of countries throughout the world, its website supported three languages, and it shipped solely to U.S. and Canada. Notice that there isn’t a Spanish and French counterpart to mirror each English advertising. That is due to search traffic not justifying that.

  Follow the money

Before you finalize the framework, examine your budgetary and reporting needs. As noted previously, there will be some clauses you will wish to fund fully. For example, your brand terms and your supplier agreements if you are a reseller. As budget lives at the campaign level, anything needing a dedicated budget demands its campaign. Using our hypothetical retailer, presuming they are not a reseller, they should run 16 campaigns instead of the above indicated 8 – 8 for branded terms and 8 for non-branded phrases. Unless budgets have to be handled against organization factors because of unique reporting requirements, let’s say that there are cheap flags with three or fewer colours or less that are considerably cheaper to create. The shop wants to focus on selling those and spending more funding. In that instance, 32 campaigns would be needed. Notice how the naming convention is simple, reflects all significant elements and uses memorable characters to differentiate them. This is crucial for reporting and filtering with the engine tools and any offline analysis you may undertake.

Ad group best practices

Start by clustering your desired keywords into topics. These should be as narrow as reasonably practicable to avoid overlap in targeted searches. With our flag store example, each keyword cluster may be for phrases around flags of a specific country. These clusters will not necessarily transfer into ad groups. Before translating your term clusters into ad groups, consider Match kinds, audience targeting and messaging.

Match types

Creating duplicate groups per match type is recommended for optimum efficiency and simplifying negative matching. This best practice is, known as match type mirroring, entails each group containing terms of one match type. Exact Match groups should perform the best and not need negatives barring extraordinary conditions. Phrase and Broad Match groups frequently perform less well and focus on negative matching.To note, to group cannibalization, you will need to have your Exact Match favourable terms as negatives in Phrase and Broad groups. Match type group mirroring provides budgetary benefits. At times of low budget, it is much easier to suspend less performing match types with them isolated in different groups. If you have a high-volume campaign and need greater control over costs, another way can work: mirror match types by movement, so each campaign only includes groups and terms of one match type.

 Audience targeting

If you wish to target distinct user groups based on their activity, you will need to clone further your groups based on audience targeting. As audience targeting may be set at the campaign level, this is recommended more for higher-level marketing. 
It can be tempting to develop a thorough framework. If it is starting to look complex, it probably is. Consider establishing a new account. Not everything needs to exist within one engine account, and numerous ones are often required for more significant advertising initiatives, particularly with many budget sources involved. Consider utilizing filters and labels. These features will allow you to swiftly report on various areas of your account or campaign without employing an unnecessarily complex naming standard for campaigns and groups. Finally, the structure is not a static element. Do revisit it periodically, especially if there are website updates. Website content and landing page adjustments are opportunities to strengthen your structure and better support the digital marketing plan.
