Are my ads showing at the same time?

Hi,

 

I'm running 2 campaigns for 2 psychiatrists within a single account. The doctors are in the same location, targeting the same patients, and in the same time zone.

 

The keywords and ad groups I've been using so far are almost similar for each of the campaigns.

 

My question is "Can ads from each of the campaign rank together and side by side for a particular search?"

 

Thanks.

No, its not possible from a single account.

There must be separate AdWords accounts.

I also have another 2 separate campaigns for two different locations within the same account. So won't they show if one of my ads have already been shown for a single query?

 

Simply, for a particular search only one of my ads from several campaigns will be shown at one time? Right?

In this situation, whichever campaign is targeting the location where the search originated will show its ad. Because the campaigns are not targeting the same location, you don't have a situation where multiple campaigns are eligible to enter ads in the same auction.

Hi Mainak,

 

Do the doctors share an office? If so, one account and only one ad be shown on each SERP.

 

If the doctors do not share an office, it's better to create an account for each. Be aware things you do to one account will likely negatively impact the other account. For this reason, handling competing accounts is considered a conflict of interest.

 

If these are client accounts, it's against Google policy to place campaigns for different clients in your own account. Get an MCC account, create separate AW accounts for each of your clients. Give your clients access to their own accounts.

 

Best of Luck!

 

Pete
