A common question that clients often ask when starting out with blogging is: ‘What Should I Blog About?’ While you are no doubt an expert on your subject matter, it can be...

How To Waste Your Time & Money With Adwords

April 30, 2012
I’m not sure what it is? Is it the deeply ingrained 'kiwi ingenuity' in our psyche or the 'she'll be right mate' attitude? Maybe it is simply ignorance. Would you start trading on the foreign exchange markets without first learning the basics? The same goes with Adwords. Time and time again business owners in New Zealand attempt to run Google Adwords campaigns themselves, with ZERO knowledge of how pay per click advertising actually works.

AdWords Keywords Match Type Changes - Thanks, But No Thanks

April 27, 2012
Earlier this month Google announced an important change to the keyword matching rules for Phrase and Exact match types. Their official word on the change states that "Starting in mid-May, phrase and exact match keywords will match close variants, including misspellings, singular/plural forms, stemmings, accents and abbreviations. Based on our research and testing, we believe these changes will be broadly beneficial for users and advertisers.” Typically I’m quite excited by the launch of new AdWords features (the unveiling of ‘modified broad...

6 Standard Blog Features Your Blog Should Have

April 12, 2012
Recently I was looking at this particular website’s blog and I couldn’t help but notice that they were missing some standard blog features. One of the first things I noticed when viewing this site’s blog was that none of their posts had dates, so I had no idea how actively they were blogging or how recent the last blog post was. Additionally, their blog had no categories, just ‘Page 1 of 12’, so I was unsure of the topics covered by...

Don't Make These 3 Beginner Mistakes With Adwords

March 1, 2012
How well is your Google Adwords campaign running? Good? Bad? Could be better? Absolutely no idea? When learning a new discipline, it is not uncommon to make mistakes starting out. However, if you are new to Google AdWords and running your own campaigns, beginner mistakes can be costly (or at worst just a downright waste of time and money altogether). I've seen clients make the same mistakes time and time again. Most of time they had no idea - they...
