Presentation Title: Automation Layering - What Close Variants Have Taught Us About PPC in an Automated World

Presentation Description:

Now even ‘exact match’ keywords are automated and may show ads for queries with the same meaning. But who decides what constitutes ‘same meaning?’ The black box automations from the ad engines do…

As automation continues its march into all aspects of PPC, what can we humans do to add value? The answer is ‘automation layering,’ a technique of building simple automations that can control what the engines are doing. We’ll cover examples of how close variants were brought in check with automation layering. You’ll learn how this concept can be applied to help you manage all aspects of modern PPC.

This session will touch on the latest changes to Google Ads, scripting, and the future of PPC careers.
