Interesting stuff keeps pouring out of the Google Adwords data that I’m collecting through Tracked.to
As I’ve mentioned already, Google’s broad matching is “VERY broad” - more broad than most people give it credit.
Most of the time Broad Match completely misinterprets your keyword, and gives you a bunch of crappy keyword clicks…
But every now and again, it grabs a few clicks on a really great keyword.
Going through my Tracked.to data yesterday, I found I’d received a click for a new search term…
I’d set up a new campaign around the keywords “copywriter” and “copywriting” - in broad, phrase and exact match. The purpose of this campaign was to drive a little traffic to this blog, but mainly to gather more Tracked.to data.
Here’s what I found:
Although I was bidding on the keyword “copywriting”, I’d received a click for the keyword “Harlan Kilstein” - the name of another copywriter, and a specific “buy-term”.
You can bet I’m specifically testing the effectiveness of this keyword now!
I had a look in Wordtracker and the Google Adwords keyword suggestion tool - if you look for keywords around “copywriter”, neither of these tools will pick up Harlan Kilstein’s name as a keyword - but based on early data, it highly likely that this keyword will result in signups and sales for me.
This is gold-level keyword research - I’m gathering real-life data on the precise keywords that result in clicks, in any market I want.
I’m a huge believer in Tracked.to’s ability to uncover negative keywords, and positive keywords (like in the example above) - “gold-nugget”, high-converting keywords that other keyword research tools won’t give you. And I genuinely want to see it help you too.
There’s still time to jump in on the Tracked.to Closed Beta, and trial Tracked.to for yourself for free.
