Did Google Just Release Paid SEO?

  • Chad Reply

    Google rolled out Adwords Dynamic Search Ads. We've been trying to get our heads around it but the more I think about it... it is really easiest to describe it as Paid SEO.

    Basically, you give Google a URL and you get to write ad copy for the 2nd and 3rd lines. Then Google uses its index to match your content to queries. They use your site content to create the headline. The idea is that you don't have to build out 1000's of keywords and rather just let Google do what it is good at = matching content to queries.

    We've just launched it for a few clients. I'll report back as we see how it does. But call it what you want... Dynamic Search Ads, Paid Inclusion... I'll call it Adwords SEO.

    I think of it as taking Keyword Insertion to the next level. I'm feeling a little cautious about this, although it might be great. I'm a bit reluctant to hand over so much control to Google.

    Google probably knows us better than we know ourselves.

    I don't mean to be a debbie downer, but I worry that, at some point, our dynamic search queries could be "not provided."

    Interesting thought Lisa but I think we are in the clear for the moment. I believe Google is getting around the "not provided" on Adwords because they are using the GCLID parameter to match back to the keyword.

    The statistic that says "every day, 16% of the searches that occur are ones that Google has never seen before" is way higher than I would have guessed. I'm excited to learn more about these ads and see some results.

    Oh boy... early results were not good. Lots of junk queries that you would feel ok about if they were organic visits... but not when you are paying.
