Ads for a Twitter account

Very new here.

Can I advertise my Twitter account on Google ads?

So when someone searches the keyword I want to target, I advertise www.twitter.com/example and get traffic to my Twitter account?

Thanks,
Scott

The short answer is yes you can. You're still going to be subject to Quality Score which takes into account things like keyword relevance and landing page experience. Depending how active you are on Twitter, it may be difficult to ensure that all the keywords you are sponsoring are found on your Twitter page when Adwords bot checks it out.

Thanks for the reply, David.

So, if I was advertising for something like say "sunglasses", I should have "sunglasses" in my Twitter profile as much as possible, such as in my bio and username, along with content about sunglasses?

Thanks,
Scott

I would say if you are sponsoring keywords related to sunglasses your twitter feed should be useful to those searching. Repetitive is not useful.

Actually you can't. The domain www.twitter.com is not actually yours as www.scottr.com would be.

Hi Hoang P,

I believe you are mistaken. There is nothing stopping you from advertising for a website that you do not own, If there was then agencies would be in a very precarious position.

This has come up before with regards to promoting Facebook pages through AdWords. There are a few things to remember:

You have no control of the site and thus if they do not fully comply with AdWords policies it could have serious repercussions for your account.

Furthermore, only one ad for a domain will be shown, so if someone else is bidding on the same keyword then only one of the ads (dependant on QS and other factors) will ever be shown, so you will never have an ad for twitter.com in pos 2 and pos 4, there will only ever be one.

These ads also usually have very low QS and you tend to pay much more than others bidding on that keyword are paying.

Lastly this can not be related to an affiliate program.

hope this helps.
