Google Ads Tip : Bidding On Brand Name

Are many of your Google Ads search terms people searching for you by name?

To Implement a cap on brand name searches, you’ll want to create a negative keyword list containing your own brand name. Add a few terms with and without spaces so that you are confident you have captured them all. Then for any particular criteria, you can have one campaign with your own brand name excluded (apply the negative list) and another campaign where the CPC has been set much lower. This second campaign will allow people to see your ads when they type your brand name. i.e. the brand name negative list won’t be applied.
