How To Write Little Tiny AdWords Ads That Bring Giant-Sized Profits
It seems to be a phenomenon. You try Google AdWords Select, your ad gets "disapproved" by the powers that be at Google, you count your losses and give up. It doesn't have to be that way. There are two primary factors to succeeding at Google AdWords. The first is getting the right keywords. The second is writing little tiny ads. Neither is all that easy, but they can both be done.
Mark Twain said it best. "If I would have had more time, I would have written you a shorter letter." The point? it takes much more skill, and much more time to write short copy than long copy.
Let's go through the process together and I'll show you a few tricks of the trade that have brought me AdWords click through rates of 7.1%, 8.0%? even 25%.
Step One ? You would be very wise to either use a benefit or an end result in your headline. In order to do this, you'll have to be aware of the difference between features and benefits. Start by making a list. I'll use the example of an online shoe store.
Here are a few features:
And here are the benefits associated with those features:
Step Two ? Know what your customers are looking for. YOU may feel that one benefit outweighs another. However, your customer might feel differently. Be sure you understand what is important to your customer before writing your headline and your ad. You have no room to waste so it is vital that you find a so-called nail and hit it right on the head.
Step Three ? Work in your keywords. There tends to be a greater click through rate on search results that use the exact keyphrase the surfer types in. The same holds true for Google's AdWords program.
While the following have by no means been researched, we'll assume that some optimum keywords for our shoe store are: women's shoes and sandals. We'll want to include these in our ads.
Step Four ? Start big and narrow it down. Begin by writing a few sentences or a paragraph about what you'd like your customer to know. Perhaps:
You'll find everything you're looking for in one place! Hundreds of styles to choose from including hard-to-find sizes in stock. You'll save lots of money because our regular prices are far below that of other stores. Plus shipping is always free ? regardless of the amount of your purchase. Check out our excellent selection of women's shoes and sandals.
Now, go back and take out every word that does not absolutely need to be there. You probably came up with something like this:
Everything in one place! Hundreds of styles, hard-to-find sizes. Prices far below other stores. Shipping free. Women's shoes and sandals.
That's a LOT smaller and still gets the point across. However, it is still too long for AdWords. Your headline must be less than 25 characters (including spaces). Your copy can only be 35 characters per line. (You get two lines.) Now is the time to begin rearranging words to create an ad that will match Google's guidelines, include your keywords, and draw a crowd to your site.
Here are a couple I came up with:
100s of Styles-Low Prices
Discount Women's Sandals
Step Five ? Test, test, test! Put them up and give them a go. See what happens. Believe me, Google will notify you quickly if your ads aren't performing. Those that get lower than a .05% click through rate are immediately "disapproved." You are notified that your ad has been pulled and that you need to make changes.
Use the information in the AdWords campaign section to track the results. I've heard countless tales of those who have changed one little word and gone from a .07% CTR to a 5.0% CTR. If your ad is pulled, make simple changes to start with. Swapping out the word "savings" for "discount" or "big" for "huge" can be all it takes to catapult you to the top of the list.
When you write extremely short copy, remember to stay focused. There is not enough room to sell the customer within your copy, but there IS enough room to pique their interests. Use the limited space you have to punch up the biggest benefits or end results your customers are looking for and you'll see bigger returns on your AdWords investment.

Understanding Google AdSense
Early on Google implemented a filtering system that allowed webmasters to prevent a specific domain's ads from being served on any websites in their account. Ad blocking meant that webmasters could prevent their competitor's ads from being dynamically served on their websites. Google provides a wide variety of ad formats to match the most suitable option with a website. Webmasters can select from a handful of preformatted towers, inline rectangles, banners and buttons. The ad boxes can be modified by webmasters to resemble the website's color scheme. Examples of how different the various text boxes and color schemes appear on similarly themed sites can be viewed at: http://www.ring-tone-software.com (scroll to the bottom)http://www.ringtones-central.com (scroll to the bottom) or http://www.police-central.com (download left side)http://www.police-supplies.com (scroll to the bottom) Ads can be geo-targeted based on the visitor's location. Advertisements containing content in English, French, German, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese, Japanese, or Spanish are all available. ChannelsGoogle recently introduced channels, enhancing AdSense reporting. When a channel is selected Google modifies the java script to include additional tracking. The additional tracking information allows webmasters to track a variety of metrics across their sites. Channels can be used to measure performance on various domains, differences in revenue with various ad sizes, or placement. By assigning each group of pages to a specific channel and comparing results in custom channel reports webmasters can work at increasing their AdSense revenue. Optimizing Google determines the content of the ads that are shown, webmasters serious about earning revenue from Google AdSense can use the following guidelines to optimize their website and ensure that targeted and relevant ads are served. If Google's spider has not crawled the site and determined the nature of the content, public service ads may be served. Public service ads will not accrue any AdSense revenue if clicked. As a result Google allows webmasters to designate alternate ads. Alternate ads allow webmasters to utilize the ad space in the event that Google is unable to serve targeted ads to the web page. By specifying an alternate image, HTML page, or ad server the advertising space can always being used effectively. 1.) Web page content on pages that ads are served should be static not dynamic. 2.) Ensure that the robot.txt does not prevent the web page from being spidered. Robots.txt file's will need to be removed or the following text will need to bedded to allow Google's content bot to crawl the site: User-agent: Media partners - Google 3.) If the website contains frames, select the 'framed page' checkbox when generating the ad layout code for that website. 4.) The body of the page and title of the page should contain contextual words that indicate a common theme on the web page. Revenue EarnedAlthough Google doesn't disclose the exact revenue share or percentage that webmasters will earn, webmasters will receive a portion of the amount paid for clicks on Google ads on websites.
