Taking AdWords Up a Notch with AdWords Performance Grader

They have the ability to make or break your website. Every website owner covets them. Having good ones implemented nearly guarantees some sort of internet success.
What am I talking about? It’s simple: AdWords. The problem with AdWords is that taking the time to ensure that your AdWords are driving success and not failure in the vastness that is the World Wide Web can be a time-consuming and stressful undertaking. Having something that can do it for you? Well, that’s called working smart, not hard – and wouldn’t you rather spend less time working on something while still ensuring that what you’re doing is profitable? Enter: AdWords Performance Grader. This little tool is something that everyone implementing Google AdWords can benefit from using.

What Is It?

AdWords Performance Grader is a tool designed by Word Stream, Inc. that delivers customers with an instant feedback report for any AdWords account. It helps you to compare how your AdWords are faring against your competitors and also offers you tips on how to improve your promotional campaign and drive success.

Why Do You Need It?

The fight to be the top website is a brutal one – people are competing right and left trying to stomp out their competition and reign supreme. By having a product that allows you to receive an analysis of not only how your own business is doing but also how it’s doing in comparison to competitors, you are getting fast feedback on how to get a leg up on the competition. Oh, and above all it’s free? That alone should be music to anyone’s ears.

How Does It Work?

The AdWords Performance Grader works by using a complex algorithm to compare your AdWords account against the millions of others that have previously been graded with the tool. You receive an individual score in eight different areas covering: wasted spend, quality score, click through rate (CTR), account activity, long-tail keyword optimization, ad text optimization, landing page optimization, and PPC best practices. With these eight categories combined you are able to find the places you are thriving in as well as those that are a coming across as a little lackluster and continually improve your campaign, thus maximizing your revenue.

What Are You Waiting For?

With AdWords being a key stepping stone to your website’s success, utilizing this tool can help to give you a rational approach to improve business. And did I mention that it’s free? That alone should act as a reason to at least give it a try. Once you try it I’m sure that you won’t be disappointed.

AMOLED display coming to Samsung Galaxy Tab range

This is a guest post by Erica about the arrival of AMOLED display to Samsung Galaxy Tab range.Samsung could be transplanting a seven inch AMOLED screen into an upcoming addition to its Galaxy Tab range of tablet computers.

You may have experienced an AMOLED display in a small portable device before as Samsung, Nokia and HTC have all used them in smartphones to date. However, the expense of producing AMOLED screens has prohibited them from appearing on larger devices like tablets, until now.

The seven inch Galaxy Tab was launched last year but an update with an AMOLED screen would be most welcome, cutting energy consumption and improving colours and contrast ratios across the board.

The rumours about this device state that it will run Android 3.0, feature a three megapixel camera on the rear, a two megapixel snapper on the front and have a display resolution of 1024x600 which is not bad for a device of this size.

The hardware powering the new Galaxy Tab will consist of a 1.2GHz processor w…

Building Blocks for Virtual Businesses : Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world

This is a guest post by Ripley Daniels about "Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world.

Whenever I tell friends I had a tough day at the office, they laugh at me. That's because they know I don't really have an office. I work very hard but I work for a company that is completely remote. Only a few of my co-workers ever go into an office at all and when they do, it's only for short periods of time. Our "office" is a virtual one. To us, the traditional office workplace is a thing of the past, alongside Tyrannosaurus Rex, the slide rule, and telephones where you stick your finger in a hole and turn a dial.
Unfortunately, none of this prevents me from having tough days. I still have them. But the reasons have nothing to do with the fact that my co-workers and I don't have a brick and mortar edifice that we can use to plan, strategize, hold our meetings, make presentations, discuss sensitive business topics, build relatio…
