Mad at Google

For a time now I've had tons of calls coming in from out of my service area. I had no clue what was happening. I thought maybe my company and a similer name company were getting mix up.

Turns out my setting for my adwords was swiched to include my whole state insted of the 10mile radius of our office I had set up at the start. For 2 months this was going on. I call google to see if any one can help me and of no one there gave a $hit.

Well I fixt it and I hope I can start geting some calls for jobs in my area.

Just venting.

This sucks, but it's also a lesson in really getting to know, and monitoring, AdWords data and your campaigns. Looking at the geographic reporting or search terms used, would have given you a quick heads up that something wasn't right. AdWords is definitely not a "set and forget".

Advice...
- monitor the campaign a few times a day to see how you're doing
- sift through the various geographic data points, which is the most important for a local business.
- refine you search terms until you have it nailed
- refine you campaign active times (custom scheduling) based on the good clicks you're getting, which will greatly help your daily budget spend.
