Now imagine this from an advertiser’s point of view, placing an ad in the middle of a search results page that is more or less relevant to the keyword being searched. Google has something like this feature called Google AdWords.

The great advantage about advertising on blogs is that blogs already attract a certain kind of demographic which may be a great target for advertisers. Now there are some factors to consider whenever advertisers want to make sure that they’re getting the right kinds of traffic, which lead to a higher yield of return of investment or ROI. Advertisers should also keep an eye on how relevant a keyword is to the item or thing they’re advertising.

The more relevant your keyword is, the better chances people have of seeing the ad and getting a higher conversion rate. One trick is to bid for broader terms to that you get to reach a broader range of people looking for a certain set of keywords. For example, if you’re advertising a specific model of basketball or running shoes, why not set bid for keywords such as running shoes, sports shoes, basketball shoes, or even just running shoes? By keeping keywords broad and unspecific, you’re ad will be open to more people looking for shoes than just those looking for the specific model of shoes.
