To make your Adwords money stretch even further, you are able to setrepparttar demographics for each of your keywords. So if you are looking for visitors from a specific region or in a particular language you can tailor your adverts accordingly, which makes it easier to deal with those quirky problems normally related to cultural differences.

The most striking difference is that you don't have to payrepparttar 102364 most per click to getrepparttar 102365 top advertising spot for a particular keyword! Your eyes are not deceiving you, a company will have to have more than deep pockets to be able to keep your site away from that top spot.

In theory, your position inrepparttar 102366 order for sponsored links will depend onrepparttar 102367 amount you are willing to pay as well as your click through rate. These figures are multiplied together to produce a rank, which is then used to determine your position inrepparttar 102368 sponsored listings. So anyone fortunate enough to have a very healthy click through rate will be able to stay near torepparttar 102369 top.

Room for Improvement

While Google's Adwords Select program is likely to prove to be successful, I can see scope for improvement; that is, assuming they have overlooked one point that seems so glaringly obvious.

Anyone who is capable of writing a convincing advert forrepparttar 102370 program can easily achieve a high click through rate. Ifrepparttar 102371 positions are determined by click through and maximum price per click alone, then it could still be possible for a search engine spammer to come in and takerepparttar 102372 best position simply by writingrepparttar 102373 most convincing advert. If spammers can makerepparttar 102374 system work for them, this could potentially be harmful torepparttar 102375 way that Google's visitors perceive them.

The fact that Google Adwords has immediate advertisement rotation removes a certain level of protection in that a human editor does not haverepparttar 102376 chance to reviewrepparttar 102377 advert and make sure that it is suitable. Perhaps what is needed is for each advert to be regularly monitored to make sure thatrepparttar 102378 keyword they bid on is deemed to be important inrepparttar 102379 page that they link to.

Surely Google will haverepparttar 102380 technology to be able to cope with such checks whenever an advert is submitted or changed, as well as to check that it is still relevant whenever Googlebot pays its regular visits. If they haven't implemented it already, then I think such checks will benefit everyone; Google, site owners and searchers alike!

I could then later on when I hadrepparttar time go findrepparttar 102363 places where I had been promotingrepparttar 102364 program and updaterepparttar 102365 information. I could even just skip that if I didn't want to, and ifrepparttar 102366 information promoting that URL wasn't misleading, related torepparttar 102367 new URL. But even if you want to updaterepparttar 102368 information or deleterepparttar 102369 link sometimes you can't. For example, on certain places where you buy text links, etc.; then instead of that link promoting a program you're no longer affiliated with you are able to promote another website, without any major effort.

* Tip: Even after you've gone throughrepparttar 102370 websites where you had put your cloaked link and removed it I would recommend keepingrepparttar 102371 file on your domain because there might be a few "ghosts" left out there onrepparttar 102372 internet who still link to this file.

Also, ifrepparttar 102373 product or service you're promoting changes its affiliate system and you have to use a different URL to get commissions you can just easily updaterepparttar 102374 URL through your cloaking file - and you'll not lose commissions by having an old, unusable link out there onrepparttar 102375 internet.
