If you’re new to the search marketing world or just want a plain-English description of certain phrases and tools in digital, then you’ve come to the right place.
Local technology and expertise is the key to biddable media success in the APAC region.
I recently spoke to Hannes Ben, Chief International Officer at independent agency Forward3D, about the skills needed in APAC and the idiosyncracies of branded paid search.
Yesterday saw the latest development in Google’s search advertising product.
Shopping ads, or product listing ads (PLAs), are set to appear within Google image searches.
I asked for some initial thoughts from agency search practitioners. Here are a few things to look out for.
How do UK adults consume media? On what devices? And in what frequency?
The Ofcom Adults’ Media Use and Attitudes Report, published last week, is always an interesting read, showing how habits have changed over the years.
I’ve picked my highlights for marketers from the survey of 1,841 adults.
Getting to grips with PPC measurement?
Search campaign tracking can often be unsophisticated, working on a last click model, measuring revenue, transactions, ROI etc.
However, some more advanced marketers measure a bigger variety of variables, including profit margin, lifetime value and phone contacts.

There’s a lot to know about paid search advertising.
To mark the release of Econsultancy’s newly updated PPC Best Practice Guide, I’ve pulled together a brief intro to KPIs, budgets and resourcing for paid search.
The full guide is more than 350-pages long and includes the basics of setting up a campaign, to more involved cross-channel strategy.

But the discussion so far has predominantly been around companies and agencies that are likely to have some level of flexibility within their display budgets.
One group that will be impacted in a very different way is the charity sector, particularly those who rely on Google’s Ad Grants programme, which limits bids to just $2.
It’s nearly ‘that time’ of year again. So what are the key things to consider if you’re still putting the final touches to your digital marketing strategy for the holiday shopping season?
Every month Google delivers results for about 50bn mobile searches, and in May the search giant revealed that mobile devices produce more searches than their desktop cousins in 10 countries, including the US and Japan.
So it’s no surprise that marketers are paying a lot of attention to mobile search, from ensuring that their sites live up to Google’s mobile-friendliness standards to pouring money into mobile paid search.
For the digital marketer, the most interesting event on this day in 2009, was the launch of Bing (not The Crazy Frog about to reach number one)!
Saying you do dynamic ads is like saying you do digital advertising. There are many different types and strategies for each.
In the future, all ads will be dynamic in nature, so you need to know what you’re doing and what makes sense for you.
