    March 23, 2017 I’m a big believer in the power of landing pages and conversion rate optimization. But, to run your conventional multivariate or A/B test, you have to have traffic. Lots of it.

  • Should you bother rewriting your ads?

    When it comes to paid search, there is a lot to optimize. Amidst all of the keywords, bidding and landing page refinements you have to do on a regular basis, it can be easy to wonder, “Does my ad copy actually make a difference?” To make matters worse, there’s nothing exciting about tweaking ad copy. Redesigning a landing page is like creating a piece of art.

  • Are you writing too much content?

    How much content is too much content? Writers have been debating this question for centuries, if not millennia. Back in the 1800s, book authors were paid per page, so literary greats like Victor Hugo literally wrote as much as possible.

    Impression share is an interesting paid search metric. On the surface, you could argue that impression share is a fairly useless metric.

However, while I still strongly believe that ROI — not impressions, clicks or conversions — is the ultimate gauge of ...
