Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
Is this a more general problem or is it restricted to me?
Over the past few days, I have heard four such reports. Specifically, I've seen the two posts here, one on another forum, and a similar report in an advertiser email.
So, while it does not appear to be a widespread issue, the tech folks have certainly been looking into it. If you're experiencing this, by all means contact AdWords support with as many details as you have time for, and we'll see if we can't get to the bottom of it.
Many thanks in advance.
* The version of FF you're using
* A copy/paste of the entire "View/Page Source"
* A screenshot or other listing of all the extensions shown in "Tools/Extensions"
* The text from "Help/About"
Nevertheless - it's not only about FF version (mine's updated to 2.0) - iut happens with dynamic kw instertion titles ONLY.
And I discovered it when I was checking on one of my test campaigns and noticed unusually low CTR. It didn't put the keyword in the title, and in for ad which title was 100% dynamic whole title wasn't visible in Firefox.
Additionally, when I created an ad with title like
and keyword was short, (it was less than 25 symbols combined with "widgets", it didn't want to put keyword in title for some reason and the title was always "Cheap Widgets". Anyways. Something's wrong with dynamic kw insertion.
Stragely, it does work with longer keywords, but doesn't work for some short ones, especially for brand names ;) But at the same time I see other competitors using dynamics that seem to work for them.
What's happening? :(
CTR is dropping like a rock for many adgroups.
Hey AWA, please keep us updated on whats happening on this front. Haven't faced such a problem yet but it might be affecting our campaigns (I am assuming we are getting impressions for the keywords).
Will do. ;)
I think I'm going to try a little experiment too. I'll work on setting up a dedicated email address for the specific purpose of having a place to which forum members could send info, such as that mentioned above. It could be very useful in troublshooting issues such as the one that kicked off this thread.
Maybe we'll give that a try, and see how it works. ;)
