Passed The AdWords Search Exam Again

They have updated it a bit since last time, but there are still some really stupid/ambiguous questions, and one question which I saw someone point out on twitter *ages* ago where *none* of the answers are correct.

Google Shopping Comes To Ireland (Republic Of)

Well, shopping ads are not showing in the search results yet, but you *can* prepare and submit a Google Shopping feed now for ‘Down South’ in Google Merchant Center, and they should start showing ‘soon’.

Google support currently don’t know when ‘soon’ is, but it doesn’t look like we are talking 2017 (hopefully), which is good since the current weakness of GBP has made exporting to other English speaking countries more important than ever if you are located in the UK.

Update – 27th October, 2016 – I have now seen some impressions in the wild for Google IRL Shoppnig campaigns. I’m still not seeing a shopping tab in the Google search results on google.ie so I sent an email to support to see what the situation was. Here is their reply –

Demographic Bidding On AdWords Search Campaigns

I’m finally starting to see this option now on some of my accounts.

The only down side is that if the vast majority of the demographic is ‘unknown’ it isn’t going to as much of an advantage as it could have been!

Hopefully this will improve given time…

Google Shopping Brand Campaigns

I’ve been doing this for a long while now, thanks to the great idea form Martin Roettgerding – here’s the original blog post – http://www.ppc-epiphany.com/2014/12/08/taking-google-shopping-to-the-next-level/

It’s definitely worth doing.

Here’s an example from one account showing how it can be used to lower bids on non brand terms and reduce the amount of money wasted on them and just how big a difference there is between Return On Ad Spend for brand and non brand terms…

AdWords ROAS – Male vs Female

 

So, who should you bid more on? Male or female? It will depend on what you are selling. Here’s a sample from one account:-

Which suggests in this case that women are more likely to click on ads and are less likely to convert.

But it will be interesting to see how it pans out once demographic bidding for search campaigns becomes available on all accounts…

AdWords Fundamentals Exam Problems (Outside the USA).

This one caused me much consternation, as my exam had expired, and I was unable to retake it for 5 days before support worked out what the problem was!

Turned out, that I had to change the language from “English (United Kingdom)” to “English (United States)” before it would let me start the exam!

So now you know if anyone else outside the USA is having the same problem.

More info below (and, yes I did pass by the way, and yes, it does still include some *very* ambiguous / poorly worded questions)…

Passed the Google Shopping Advertising Exam.

google-shopping-exam-2016

I’m not sure which one I got wrong.

It may have been the one which asked ‘how do you increase clicks on a campaign that is limited by budget’.

There were 2 correct answers.

1. Increase budget.
2. Decrease bids.
