How to Smartly Allocate Bids for Maximum Conversions

Optimizing bids requires major time and attention. We PPC’ers, have come up with many strategies to make certain we are winning auctions. Ultimately, we all want to allocate our budgets wisely to generate the highest amount of conversions.

We are constantly asking ourselves, how can we optimize bids to get the most out of our keywords? So let’s take a look at what it takes to make your keywords soar.

The Key to Keywords
Today we will look at the performance of two keywords over a 24-hour period. We will be strategically bidding to maximize conversions for a daily budget of $100.

According to the statistics of the above keywords, we can calculate a winning combination for our budget of $100.00:

Our $100 daily budget yields 16 total conversions with an average CPA of $6.25.
