Did you know 53% of mobile users leave a site if it’s not loaded within 3 seconds? This increases your bounce rate which directly impacts your search engine rankings because it suggests that your page does not have the required information or user-experienced to be considered trustworthy. Google also measures your site speed and gives out penalties for particularly slow sites so be aware!

Is your landing page not converting? It might be because you’ve got too many CTA’s on one page. Make sure that you only have one call-to-action per page in order to optimise conversions. Too much information can be confusing and encourage a high bounce rate and low conversions.

Today’s #WednesdayWisdom is all about Google Ads and bidding on keywords. When you set up a Google Ads campaign you have to set a budget on how much you want to spend. You can also choose how you set your budget. For example, you can set a budget for the overall campaign and let Google do the work, or you can choose individual budgets for your top bids.
Being in complete control of your budget is one of the biggest advantages to using Google Ads. However, it is important to be aware that some keywords can be very expensive and others can be much less so. The average top page bid (the average price people pay to be number one on Google) varies so greatly depending on the industry. This is because, when you create an ad on Google, it goes to auction and the winner gets the top of page bid. One of the factors in this auction is that price that advertiser is willing to pay to be there. The higher the competition, the higher the price.
Don’t worry though, the cost is not the only thing that matters. You also need to make sure that your ads are relevant to your keywords so that they will be beneficial to the consumers. You also need to check that your page loads quickly and there aren’t an obvious errors.
