By jameszol
Published on November 9, 2007

This week was a great week for PPC news. I will typically cover a quick roundup from the major ppc platforms and the blog posts from the bloggers/companies we admire - enjoy!

Official Blogs -


AdWords has a good Optimization Tips series going on right now. This week they discussed and encourage using negative keywords to improve ROI.

I haven’t used AdWords radio advertising yet - Clear Channel radio has given AdWords users access to guaranteed inventory so we can advertise on more than 1,700 AM/FM Radio Stations.

The big news this week - Updates to Site Targeting: Placement targeting is the new term for site targeting in AdWords.

There was a recent recap on the basics of Min CPC, Max CPC, and Avg. CPC.

Overall it was a busy week for the Google AdWords team.
