Have different clients in the same industry. How to keep separate accounts from competing for the same keyword searches is the goal. I thought there was a doman exclusion feature  for this but can't seem to find it in Adwords or searching on Google. LOL

Hi Wayne,

 

You can exclude webpages and apps or exclude audiences, but those will not prevent different clients from competing in the same auction. 

 

One way to do what you want to achieve is with ad scheduling. Determine the strongest performing days and times for each and then set up scheduling.

 

Kind Regards,

 

James

It is a common problem for large agencies and there isn't an ideal solution. They were going to compete regardless of who is managing them. You could proactively not accept new clients who compete with current ones...

 

It gets especially difficult when the you have, for example, tradespeople as clients, who often want to be the #1 ad. So perhaps choose which client you will please.

exclude webpages and apps works great for display but looking for something to use in Search.  Currently using ad scheduling all my accounts are not big enough to fill the space and would like to fill the space with no overlap
