Suggested bid is the price that Google recommends you to bid in the auction for a click. An auction occurs every time a person types that keyword into Google. If you bid this price, you’ll pay this amount per click if a user clicks on your ad.

You can bid less than the recommended bid, but then Google will only show your ad if Google thinks your ad and landing page is more relevant than the competitive bids for that user, or if other competitors are not bidding as high for some reason.

For example, if you bid lower you may find you are showing up more for mobile phone searches rather than desktop, because mobile doesn’t tend to convert as well and so manual bidders will often bid lower for mobile.

You need to take heed of the suggested bid, because it will dictate how much traffic you are likely to get for a given budget. No point in having a $10 daily budget if clicks for the keyword you want cost $11 per click.

Reviewing suggested bid in the Keyword Planner list allows you to find keyword opportunities that are in alignment with your budget. For a larger business with larger budgets, the keywords with higher bids also imply that they are likely to convert better.

To create the suggested bid price, Google has its own internal algorithm for how much a click should cost and also the data from historical paid bids. They compare the historical demand for a keyword versus how much advertisers are willing to pay for it.

Petra's detailed reports and her personal assistance has been helping us to know where to concentrate our efforts and even showed us technical issues we needed to fix. Our Audience Engagement Report identified several key interests of our buying audience. We tried targeting one of those interests and it brought in two sales almost immediately! I highly recommend working with Petra and accessing her brilliance to scale your business.

Here at 1834 Hotels we centralise the marketing for many different hotels. It can be an enormous undertaking to monitor and track the performance of each one, especially when they are all on separate webpages.

Petra helped to resolve this difficulty by creating a central hub in Google Tag Manager and Google Analytics with Cross-domain tracking and Ecommerce as well. She created many valuable analytics dashboards and reports that draw from the centralized source. Now that we have all the analytics tracking working it has improved the accuracy of our reporting and the insights have helped develop better marketing strategies.

Petra’s skills and wealth of knowledge is fantastic. I would recommend Petra without hesitation.

I have been working with Petra for over a year now after changing from a much larger digital marketing provider and I could not be more pleased with the service and results my business is achieving.

With my previous providers I felt disconnected with limited communication. Petra on the other hand provides me with knowledge and information in a language I can understand that helps me make informed decisions not just about digital marketing but also my e-commerce business as a whole.

Petra has helped me navigate seasonal drops in trade creating a strategy that helped us grow and establish a healthy position in the market. It is an absolute joy to work with someone who loves what they do. I have complete confidence in recommending Petra to anyone considering e-commerce digital marketing, she is efficient, trusted and a true professional.
