Who doesn’t want maximum conversions? We all are in search of the same, isn’t it? Without conversion data, it is impossible to optimize Adwords Campaign. There are many small advertisers who don’t have enough expertise to completely set up their campaigns and also end up setting new campaigns with certain goals like getting more clicks.
Recently, Google has announced “New Smart Goals” which will make use of website insights so as to know about the optimal clicks for using Adwords as well as Analytics. Small businesses which currently use Google Analytics will be easily able to get benefit of their own website data with no further set up required.
Google will then analyze the positive as well as negative metrics of any website and then will automatically switch towards the better one. Smart Goals will be turned on and integrated with AdWords.
This can be easily done with two simple steps i.e. within Google Analytics > Admin Section> Goals > Smart Goals. Now, you have started tracking your traffic. Another way is to go to Conversions in the Tool tab and then choose Google Analytics in left navigation.
Who can take the benefit of Automated Smart Goals?
So, again here the question is as to who can make most use of these Automated Smart Goals. This sounds really interesting. Any naïve advertiser who lacks with clear cut conversations can easily get benefitted from these Smart Goals.
Several local restaurants that lack the facility of phone tracking, brochure websites with no contact forms and local stores that don’t have eCommerce capabilities can be easily get benefitted from auto generated conversions.
In short, we can consider “Smart Goals” as an option for those who lack the appropriate facilities used to achieve the Goals. In case you are using these, then you must closely monitor the effectiveness of your business so as to ensure that it is driving perfect traffic for you.
Who cannot be benefitted from these Automated Smart Goals?
So, those who already have a clear state of mind regarding what to achieve and what not achieve, must stay away from these. Such people can take advantage of custom conversions so as to achieve website goals like as sales, contacts, calls and downloads.
Google can easily automate the things however the owner is the one who is more aware of its business goals.
Google Explains Smart Goals as follows:
These are configured at view level. It uses machine learning to know about several signals about your website visits in order to identify the ones that have maximum chances of resulting into conversions.
Every visit has a score where the best visits are to be translated into Smart Goals. Several examples of these signals are Session duration, per session pages, Location, Device and Browser. In order to identify the best visits, Smart Goals create a threshold by choosing approximately 5% of the traffic to the site coming from Adwords.
Once this threshold is set then Smart Goals are applied to all the website visits such as traffic from several other channels except Adwords. Once smart goals are activated in Google Analytics then these can be imported into AdWords.
So, next time when you think you don’t have clear goals then try to use Google Smart Goals as this will help you to get sufficient conversions. Hope this blog post was useful to you.
