*Our setup fees are for Google Adwords only. If you wish to use or are using numerous paid search providers (i.e. Yahoo, Google and MSN) then please contact us to discuss appropriate pricing.

**When we refer to top level keywords, we mean your main keywords, for example: ‘blue widget’, ‘yellow widget’ or ‘red widget’. Long tail variations for ‘blue widget’ include: ‘best blue widget’, ‘cheap blue widget’ or ‘blue widget for sale.  For each top level keyword, you may use additional, unlimited long-tail variations.

***We generally build 1 Ad Group per 1 top level keyword, which keeps your PPC account nicely organised and better optimised resulting in a higher Google Quality Score.

PPC Management Service

PPC ad performance tends to deteriorate over time if left alone. To become more cost effective rather than less cost effective your PPC Ad campaigns require constant monitoring and attention by an experienced, Google Adwords qualified professional.

Search Engine Oracle’s objective is to show a steady improvement in PPC performance, both in terms of quality and quantity of traffic, and to report ROI as accurately as possible.

The PPC management service includes the following:

  1. Monthly report detailing all keyword information, costs and conversion analysis if possible.
  2. Performance optimisation of existing ads
  3. Research to identify new advertising opportunities and markets
  4. A/B split testing of Ad headlines and copy to find the best combinations
  5. Localisation of regional or national Ads to reduce competition
  6. Keyword analysis and fine-tuning to identify most lucrative searches
  7. CPC bid adjustments

PPC advertising fees are paid directly to Google by your company credit card.

PPC Optimise Service

This service is for clients who already have a paid advertising campaign up and running. Perhaps it doesn’t seem to be generating enough traffic, or costs are very high. We can help reduce costs whilst increasing traffic through to your website. We do this using a number of tried and tested PPC campaign optimisation techniques – such as improving ad text, split testing ads, researching more niche keywords, configuring ad scheduling and more.

Depending on how large your PPC campaign is and how well it was originally constructed, we generally charge the same fees as our PPC Set up charges to optimise an account, because we will literally rebuild your campaign from scratch. If however, we believe your account only requires a few minor tweaks, we will price these accordingly.
