Please Note: Your rules should of course fit your general campaign structure strategy and the following rules might not be fitting for every seller.


Automatic Ad Groups

Good Searchterms to Broad:  If orders  => 1 (immediately) move to ad group (Broad) + set to negative (phrase)* in source automatic ad group

Good Searchterms to Phrase:  If orders  => 1  (immediately) move to ad group (Phrase) + set to negative (phrase)* in source automatic ad group

0 Sales: If 0 sales after 25 clicks, set search term to negative (exact)


Good ASINs will (only) be moved to product targeting ad groups as mentioned in step 5 of this How-To article.


*Please note: In the current Keyword Rules version 1.0, searchterms can only be set to negative exact (and not phrase). This is planned for the next update though, coming soon!


Manual Ad Groups

Good Searchterms to Exact:  If orders => 2 (immediately) move searchterm to ad group (exact)

0 Sales: if orders = 0 after 2X clicks, set search term to negative (exact)


Pro Tip
: Ideally the exact ad group is within a separate campaign, so that you can safely increase your campaign budget for your proven exact targets.

Additional Suggestion: Bid Rules

Maintaining a good campaign structure with the help of keyword rules is only half the battle.

After that it's all about continuously optimizing those bids, particularly for individual targets in manual ad groups, depending on their respective performance.

The Sellics Bid Rules will take over that on-going process for you.
