We held five in-depth interviews with members of our PPC team to find out how did they increase revenue from non-branded pay-per-click campaigns by 94%.

In the past nine months, SEMrush’s revenue from non-branded pay-per-click campaigns has increased by 94 percent. So we held five in-depth interviews with members of our PPC team to find out how they achieved this result. This is the first chapter of our case study in which we‘ll guide you through the best practices of big data analysis.
The Auction Insights feature on AdWords provides a list of the display URL domains of advertisers in direct competition with you. It allows you to not only identify your biggest competitors, but also to see how your own advertising efforts compare to theirs.
Everyone wants to be first. The first in a race gets the gold. The first to market becomes the market leader. The top grade in class gets the most honors. But what if bidding on position one doesn’t yield the best leads or worse: it bleeds your AdWords budget for marginal returns?

As useful as Google AdWords is, it can be time consuming to maintain and update your campaigns. That’s where scripts come in. Do you want to frequently monitor for errors and ad disapprovals? There’s a script for that. Do you want to alter your bid based on real-time data? There’s a script for that, too. There are hundreds of scripts available that can ease the campaign management burden.
One of the most overlooked features of Google AdWords – and one of the most useful – is the household income tier targeting option. Hidden inside a few drop-down menus, this campaign targeting technique isn’t challenging to test and integrate into existing campaigns and can yield insights that are far more useful than “people are clicking our ads.” Not to mention that it cuts advertising costs due to enhanced targeting. 
Are you setting up your landing page properly? Matthew Macchia of Clickedon.it provides a primer on some best practices.
In this blog post, you’ll learn why you should consider using retargeting as an effective channel to boost your sales, as well as how to enhance your retargeted ads with already proven methods and techniques. Also, I’ll discuss some outstanding examples of ads that may help you streamline your creative process.
By using profit-driven optimization techniques, advertisers can maximize their profits. The point at which the profit is highest is where the current ROI is equal to 1/E, where E is the current price elasticity (see the article: How to Drive Profit with PPC Campaigns). Therefore, the target ROI of the campaign cannot simply be an arbitrary decision of company management. It solely depends on the shape of the curve of the price elasticity of clicks.
