In February Google announced a paradigm shift in the way they offer AdWords to business, and the internet marketing ecosystem has been abuzz ever since. The shift that Google announced is called Enhanced Campaigns, and it brings all AdWords campaigns under one model.
Before talking about enhanced campaigns, it’s important to understand the former, or “legacy”, model. It used to be that Google offered the choice of running desktop only ads, or mobile only ads, and if you wanted to run both, then they were separate campaigns. This gave advertisers the choice of how they wanted to deliver ads to their potential customers, but also required duplicating their efforts across multiple channels.
Enhanced Campaigns brings everything under one roof – meaning that you only have to run one campaign to effectively target all devices. Google’s data has shown that it is as equally important to target a desktop user at 6am as it is to target a mobile phone user at 6pm. Whether at home, work, or on the go, consumers are searching for products and services, and they want to be delivered relevant and device contextual results.
Enhanced Campaigns means that advertisers don’t have to run multiple campaigns to meet their advertising needs. Now, you can make smart marketing decisions with one effective and powerful campaign - showing the right ad, at the right time.
For more information on enhanced campaigns feel free to visit Google’s press release.

As Google has evolved over the past decade, one thing has always been debated by small retailers - would I be better served by utilizing a smart SEO strategy or go with a smart Pay-Per-Click strategy? A decade ago, SEO was a much easier undertaking. There was fewer competitors trying to rank for keywords and Google hadn't quite figured out how to deliver visitors with ads relevant enough to click on. But all that's changed.
In 2010, Google made $28 Billion (that's with a B) in advertising revenues. With 80-90% of this generated by AdWords campaigns, Google has a huge (and very profitable) reason to continually find ways to drive more and more traffic to the paid search areas of the Search Engine Results Page (SERP). SEO still has a major role in any online marketing strategy, but studies are showing PPC is “rising dramatically in its importance.”
This report on Practical Ecommerce is very insightful and shows that advertisers can no longer afford to take a hard stance on the SEO v. PPC debate. To read the entire article, "Pay-Per-Click Advertising Becoming More Important?", click here
