Estimating visitor traffic from PPC campaign Can this be done with any accuracy? fom2001uk
Someone has asked me to give them a forecast of the traffic they might expect from a PPC campaign. Now I know that the engines will give you numbers on keyword searches done previously, but I would be inclined to treat those figures with a pinch of salt.
Does anyone think differently?
There are so many variables that this can be difficult.
Title and description copy have a lot to do with clickthroughs. Competitive terms fluctuate constantly.
We have some terms with a .5% CTR and some with a 27% CTR.
My advice is to start small with some targeted 3-4 keyword phrases, bid as high as is profitable, track your results, and then adjust your campaign according to your budget and ROI.
