What is Quality Score and why does it matter? | Google Adwords | Understanding PPC

In a nutshell, higher Quality Scores typically lead to lower costs and better ad positions.

Google study proves no matter what your organic strategy is, you still need PPC

Google released a Search Ads Pause research study which showed that 89% of the clicks from search ads are incremental, i.e., 89% of the visits to the advertiser’s site from ad-clicks are not replaced by organic clicks when the search ads are paused.

Just recently they found that on average, 50% of the ad clicks that occur with a top rank organic result are incremental.

When setting up a ReachSearch™ campaign (Pay Per Click search engine marketing) you can either set up a radius or a DMA (Designated Market Area). A radius is simply based in miles around a certain point (usually the location of the business)
