Some basic questions

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

When I use keywords... I should use keywords that I want my site to appear on? And not actually my keywords I use for my site.

I cater to hip hop.

So I want my ads to appear only on hip hop sites...that post about new music, videos, interviews, gossip, mixtapes, singles,
etc...

Is this correct?

Also...Any way I can see what sites my ads show on besides looking at my traffic statistics?

Keywords are basically the key phrases or terms defining your business. Hence if you are using keywords on your website using Search Engine Optimization (SEO) strategies, you might consider using them for Google Adwords too.

I would suggest you to use the keyword tool to identify the right set of keywords which your business revolves around and for which you want the users to click your ads to. This article also explains how to build good keyword list.

I am assuming that you are referring to the placements here. Let me know if that's not the case.

 

This is possible if you are running a Google Display Network where you can manage the sites or placements where Google showed your ads and later you can include them under Managed Placements to further take control over them

 

Let us know if that helps!
