New Feature: AdWords Search Query Performance

Raven has released a feature within our AdWords Insights tool called Search Query Performance.

Search Query Performance shows the search terms that people used when they clicked on PPC ads. It also shows impressions, clicks and conversions.

Both SEOs and SEMs will find value in this tool, if you have synced your Google AdWords account with Raven. Why? Not only is this a good research tool for AdWords customers, it provides data to help fill in the gaps created by (not provided).

Here’s how it works.

You can view the keyword, Ad Group or Campaign that were triggered by that search term.

You can add the search term to an Ad Group—which will add it to the Ad Group that was triggered by the search—or you can add it as a negative keyword to an Ad Group or Campaign. That’s useful for keywords that were far off base for your target campaigns and could be costing you a lot of money.

Finally, you can add any keyword to Raven’s Keyword Manager for follow up and/or turn on SERP tracking for it.

4. Use the drop-downs above the table to filter data at the Campaign or Group level. You can also change the date range and number of table results you’re viewing.

5. Export your data by clicking the Export Data icon.
