This is just as important as making sure they click the ad. It would be of no help at all for your company’s conversion rates to have customers click on an ad that says “Low cost car accessories” and have them land on a page displaying stressfully priced products. 

Companies have to make sure that what your page and what the ad says match. Behavior like this could potentially give your company a bad reputation and will surely put customers off.

Negative Keywords

One feature AdWords allows clients is using negative keywords. Keywords are inputted in order to dictate when the ads will show up, and negative keywords, in particular, are there to make sure that the ads don’t always show up.

It helps to save a lot of money when you make sure that your ads only show up on the search results of and are clicked by your target market who are actually interested in your product or service.

Wise Keyword Usage

There are different types of keywords one can utilize in AdWords. 
Broad keywords include all ads with any of the words in any order, including synonyms, making it the widest-encompassing type. 

Broad match modified keywords, meanwhile, make sure that the ad appears only in searches with the exact words in their exact order as you’ve specified.

Phrase match keywords allow your ad to appear in searches that use a phrase you’ve specified.

Exact match keywords, finally, make sure that your ads only appear with the exact phrase you’ve specified.
