AdWords and Smart Goals

Many PPC experts are not very trusting with Smart Goals for optimisation reasons.

Setting up Smart Goals is very easy. It is enough to link your Analytics and AdWords accounts. In Analytics, select Smart Goals under Goals in the Admin tab. You then need to go to AdWords and make a few changes to pull this data in.

Smart Goals estimates what are conversions based on visits. Metrics around those visits which signify the most likely to have converted. You can then use this information, imported into AdWords to optimise ad spend. For example, using target CPA bidding this can even be automated.

AdWords and Smart Goals

This tool was created for small, not very sophisticated businesses which are not tracking conversions. The reason why Google introduced this tool was for organisations which doesn’t use any tracking conversion system so they should at least have an option for loosely measuring performance with Smart Goals data.

 

Experts argue that this data dosn’t provide anything worth a great deal.  Google Analytics must receive at least 1,000 clicks from AdWords over a 30-day period to ensure the validity of the data.

The tool is created for people who are very good businessman but not very familiar with advertising and aren’t tracking conversions because they don’t have Google Analytics or if they have they don’t know how to use it and set it up. Smart Goals are controversial and only time can show if this tool becomes popular.
