How to deal with Low Performance in Product Text Ads Campaigns (Using Per Partes & Keywords Match types)

From our experience, every keyword in product campaigns need at least 10 – 20 clicks for one conversion. But when you use more match type for keywords, they can canibalize each other – and also clicks are divided to more keywords – so it is harder to optimize.

Keywords Match types

We recommend to use Broadmodifier and Exact match type in Product campaignsExact match has usually lowest prices per click. But with BroadModifier you can find out new searchterms (how peaple are looking for your products).

And also use our feature Per Partes for keywords, so keywords are enabled gradually from longest to shortest.
