As Perpetua's engine does not automatically add or harvest keywords on your behalf, you will need to manually add your keyword targets to your new and existing Google Ads goal.

Here are a few tips to consider:

  • When choosing an initial set of keywords, consider keywords that are likely to lead to a conversion. Mixing in words such as "best", "Amazon", "shop", "buy online", "purchase" in the keyword phrase to capture the shopping intent.

  • Leverage your past Google Ads keyword history to find successful keywords you would like to continue bidding on.

  • Use search term reports and the Keyword Planner within Google Ads to harvest and research new keyword ideas.

  • Use a mix of Exact and Phrase match keywords.

  • Monitor the quality score of your keywords

Note: Perpetua does not recommend utilizing the Broad match type. Negligent use of broad match can result in spending your entire budget on Google on traffic that may not lead to conversions.
