Our Google AdWords Methodology
Buyer Persona Research
Buyer persona research is often overlooked by many AdWords agencies. At Digital Squad, we know that understanding your customers and their buyer personas is an essential step. In order to do this, we conduct a detailed consultation with the business owner, sales or marketing manager to understand exactly what you offer. This allows us to refine our keyword selection and targeting.
In order to conduct keyword research thoroughly, a number of professional agency tools need to be utilised as well as the Google Keyword Planner to grasp the keywords customers are searching for, the monthly keyword volumes, and the competitiveness of said keywords. We also research your competitors to reveal hidden opportunities.
Bid Strategy Optimisation
The next step is to opt for either a monthly budget based on keyword research (search volume vs cost per click), or for you to provide an amount you would like to work with. We utilise ad serving and rotation to determine the most effective way to spend your budget. As everything is tracked precisely, you will be able to clearly see how every cent has been spent.
Negative Keyword Inclusion
Low-quality search terms which do not result in any meaningful onsite interaction from a visitor are called negative keywords. We strategically add negative keywords to campaigns to maximise the Quality Score and minimise the cost-per-click. What this means is that the right audience will be targeted.
Conversion tracking lets us monitor and attribute enquires and calls to clicks, allowing us to better understand searcher behavior. We can therefore continuously gain new knowledge to improve the campaign. Multiple course corrections are usually conducted to improve your campaign set up.
Monthly Optimisation and Reporting
We conduct monthly AdWords and Google Analytics reporting detailing important metrics such as clicks, CPC, CPC, bounce rates and session times. Don't worry - we'll simplify all this data so you can stay abreast of your campaign status.

A right bid strategy can lower your ad costs, improves targeting, and enhances results to the next level.
So, how to choose a suitable bid strategy for your campaign?
Here is the list of bid strategies that are mostly used by the advertisers to achieve campaign goals.
Maximise Clicks: It is an automated bid strategy that drives more traffic/clicks/visitors to the landing page (s) under the set daily budget.
Maximise Conversions: If you want Users to take an action on the landing page and track conversions, then Max. Conversion is the right option. Google Ads will automatically run on the daily budget limit to achieve the maximum number of conversions.
Target CPA (Cost Per Acquisition): This bid strategy optimises your conversions. By setting a target CPA, Google Ads will run campaign to get most of the conversions at the set target CPA so that you won’t lose money. However, we recommend this bid strategy to those advertisers who have a good knowledge of bidding on google ads.
Target ROAS (Return on Ad Spend): Choosing Target ROAS will concentrate campaign efforts to maximise conversion value while focusing on specific Target Return from the ad.
Target Impression Share: Campaigns focused on bringing ‘Awareness’, can select the Target Impression Share to meet the goal. It’s a smart bidding strategy that runs to give optimum results for the set budget.
Manual CPC: It provides you with the control over your budget spend. You can choose which specific ad needs more budget and which ad can have a reduced budget. You can spend money efficiently however it’s a manual process and requires a lot of attention and review which can become hectic if you are running multiple campaigns simultaneously.
Google Ads has a section for conversion action under tools and settings where you can create multiple conversions for your campaigns.
To track the conversion, you must have access to your Google Tag Manager (GTM) account, and Google Analytics Account. Let’s begin!
1. First Create a New Conversion Action in your Google Ads Account.
2. While setting up new conversion action, copy the Conversion Label and Conversion ID.
3. Go to your GTM account and create a new Tag.
4. Copy and Paste-Conversion Label and Conversion ID and save it.
5. Create Trigger Action and select the preview mode to perform the testing of the tags created.
6. The process is completed! It will take a few hours to Google Ads with an update on conversion actions from the website.
7. You can also import a conversion from google analytics by creating a goal conversion in the analytics and linking your google ads account with google analytics directly.
We know each campaign has a different goal set and bid strategy and here are the top most important KPIs you must not ignore while reviewing campaign performance.
Clicks: You can see which campaign, ad group, keyword or ad got the highest number of Clicks.
Impressions: How well your campaign is performing on Google Networks and Partner sites.
Click Through Rate (CTR): It shows Rate (%) at which your ads engage with the audience. Higher CTR means that the ad is appealing to the target segment. Formula for calculating CTR% is Clicks/Impressions.
Cost Per Click (CPC): It’s a cost that is charged on a click for your ad. A high CPC means that you are being charged a lot for the clicks which is not good for your campaign. Improve your campaign performance by lowering Avg. CPC cost.
Bid-Strategy: This metric decides your campaign approach, if you want more traffic then choose Max. Clicks as your bid strategy. Review your campaign objective and select the relevant Bid Strategy Type.
Conversions: If you are enabling User action on your landing page and tracking it through conversion set up then this metric will help you understand total number of conversions your campaign received. For better analysis, select the date range and check conversion performance at the campaign level, ad group level, keyword level and ads level.
Optimisation Score: It shows how well your campaign is designed in terms of ad relevance, budget allocation, keyword performance etc. We suggest to keep campaign’s optimisation score above 80% to 85%.
Most Common Google Ads Issues that affect your Campaign Performance
1. Choosing a wrong Bid-Strategy
For example, if you want more clicks and the bid strategy selected is Maximum Impressions, the campaign will not work for the desired results. You must choose Maximum Clicks as a bid strategy.
2. Ignoring Negative Keywords
Negative Keywords improves campaign performance by not ranking on irrelevant keywords. Let’s suppose you want that your Ad should rank on the keyword ‘Digital Marketing’ as a brand but there is a possibility that the Ad may rank on the keyword ‘Digital Marketing Courses’ so keeping ‘Digital Marketing Courses’ as a negative keyword will avoid triggering your Ads, improves targeting and cost per click.
3. So many Campaign Revisions in a short period.
We suggest avoiding campaign modification like constantly changing bid strategy, pausing and reactivating campaigns, increasing or decreasing budget frequently. As per Google Recommendations, first 5-days is a learning mode for a campaign. You can review your campaign performance after having a data of minimum 15 days.
4. Lower Campaign Optimisation Score:
Optimisation score is not constant, it keeps changing as the campaign matures, we recommend to keep check on improving this score above 80% to 85%. Higher the Campaign Optimisation Score, Better is Campaign Performance.
5. Ad Copies Not Including Targeted Keywords.
This is one of the common mistakes, while writing an ad copy that contains headlines and description it is important to include targeted keywords that will help in improving Ad Relevance. We suggest including some of the keywords from your Landing Page as well in order to have an excellent ad strength.
