Placement targeting
Manually choose which websites you want to appear on
Gives you the most control over where you’re going to appear on the GDN.
Takes lots of work and time to do Placement only targeting.
Better to exclude placements than to include.
Demographic targeting
Reach customers who are likely to be within the demographic groups that you choose.
Demographic groups that you can choose from include:
-age
-gender
-parental status
Contextual targeting
-Most common type
-Utilizes keywords related to the products and services you offer.
Topic targeting
-Allows you to choose from an existing list of page topics, meaning that your ads will only display on pages about that topic.
-Very broad scope, limited on what topics you can drill down to.
Interest targeting
-Lets advertisers target the user, not the page content.
-User can be looking at anything when your ad appears
Combination targeting
AdWords display targeting is most effective when a combination of targeting methods are used.

Placements and topics. This method involves picking a placement that has the right audience demographic (placement) and combining this with some topics that define a good subject. This way you should only appear on the most relevant sites to your ad topic.

Topics and interest categories. If a user visits a site within the topic an advertiser selects, and they’re in a matching interest category too then it’s clear that the user consistently reads that material. This combination improves the advertisers chances of getting the right type of visitor compared to either topics or interest categories alone.

How to optimize campaigns
regularly review the automatic placements report, and add strong performing placements to your managed placement campaigns.

2. First Click
3. Linear
4. Position-based
5. Time Decay
Last Click
The last touchpoint (or Direct channel)—receives 100% of the credit for the sale
First Click
The first touchpoint would receive 100% of the credit for the sale.
Linear
Each touchpoint in the conversion path; in this case the Paid Search, Social Network, Email, and Direct channels—would share equal credit (25% each) for the sale.
Position-based
40% credit is assigned to each the first and last interaction, and the remaining 20% credit is distributed evenly to the middle interactions.
Time Decay
The touchpoints closest in time to the sale or conversion get most of the credit.
Calculating KPIs
1. Identify the three most critical processes in your organization. This will depend on your business. For instance, it may be delivery, distribution, and the order fulfillment process for one company and procurement, logistics, and sales origination for another company.

2. Map the process from end to end using a flow chart. Diagram the process from end to end. Be sure to include other functional groups which may contribute to the process such as finance or human resources.

3. Based on company goals, create a KPI for each process. Use the flow chart to help determine critical points in the process. For instance, if the goal of the company is to cut costs, then the number of renegotiated contracts or year-over-year contract savings may be the best way to gauge performance. The most common KPIs are based on time or money.

4. Assign data inputs to one person for each KPI. The accuracy of the data is just as important as the calculation.

5. Create a report to calculate all three KPIs. For instance, let’s say you own a widgets company and the main goal of the company is to increase widget revenue and reduce widget costs. Your KPIs can be month-over-month revenue growth–growth divided by starting revenue–and cost savings per employee–total savings divided by number of active employees.

What killed the SEO analyst?
-Panda and Penguin
-more of an “online pr manager”

During the early days of search engines it didn’t take people long to figure out how to manipulate Google to their advantage. By utilizing a few sneaky tactics it was quite easy to get to the top of the organic search pile. Keyword stuffing and bad linking were the names of the game. SEO agencies cropped up all over the place and made a mint off customers because they knew how to get results quickly.
