Can i have multiple accounts with the same site and credit card?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello everyone, this is my first post in this forum and i will be thankful for your opinions and coments

 

I have a client that sell presential courses. The structure of the site is like this:

www.mydomain.com/course-1
www.mydomain.com/course-2
www.mydomain.com/course-3
www.mydomain.com/course-4
www.mydomain.com/course-5

 

Each course is totally Independent of the other ones (different building, different teachers, different prices) but the content and the target are very similar.

 

At the moment i have:
- One account
- 5 campaigns (one for each course)
- Ad groups and ads in each campaigns

 

The problem

All the courses are very similar so a lot of keywords (from the 5 campaigns) are the same and they compete each other. The same happens with landing pages, they have similar content.

 

Considering that:
- The way that the users are looking for all the courses is similar (search terms)
- All the courses are in the same city (the target is the same)
- For all the courses is the same site and credit card

 

Can i have one account for each course?
What do you advise me?

 

Thanks so much for your opinons and coments

Hi @Emanuel A; Welcome;

Simple answer: No;

This would be a violation of the "gaining an  unfair advantage" section of the Policy.

Promoting similar services to the same audience by the same business entity - is not allowed.

Hi Emanuel,

You can not advertise same website with multiple adwords accounts as its violates adwords policies.

 

As per your client's services you need to avoid duplicate Keywords..otherwise they will compete each other in the ad auction.

for this i suggest you to create different campaigns according to different theme to avoid duplicate keyword and hence competing each other.

For example:

your course is MBA then have a campaign with general keywords

and create all other campaign related to particular course like create 1 campaign using keywords MBA in marketing, another campaign with keywords like MBA in finance and so on..

this will avoid duplicate kw ans also you can create more relevant ads with better quality score.

 

Also you can create Adgroups with same keywords with different match types.

1 more thing that i suggest you to add is Site links extension using all your different courses.
