Gdn some targets easier than others ?

Hi,

I tried to set several separate ad group targets (all with graphics and ad text)  : kw only, kw + placements (contextuel) , managed placements , themes only , interest only. I 've been rising cpc bids also to see whether the bid was wrong or not (from 0.30 to 0.85 )

For the time being, after 5 days :
only themes and Kw give impressions (about 15 000 but mainly on ads text)
managed placements : 29
interest  : 207

Generally speaking,  can we say that it is easier to target with kw and ad text on auto placements than managed ones . And what about interest ?

Tks..

Hello ,

 

For interests the bid should be higher I think , because a fee is deducted from your bid . Read this :

It is unusual that for managed placements you get only 20 impressions in 5 days ( even if 2 are weekend) . For that ad group the google ads could be placed below the fold and the exclusion could prevent impressions. Or others bid a lot more. Check the relative CTR metric .

 

Yes topics (themes as you call them) and keywords work well.
