Advanced PPC Strategies: What Do You Want to Read About?

In searching through our web stats today, the category “Advanced PPC Strategies” ranks as one of the top 10 pieces of content on our blog. All time, it’s the 4th most viewed piece.

Clearly, you’re interested in it! So, we’re making one of our next blog post series about just that—Advanced PPC Strategies!

Our last two blog post series were extremely well-read—one described how to think more like your customers and the one before described how to write great ads—and we’d like to make this one equally as great.

To do that, we’d like to get your suggestions on what topics to cover. While each day’s blog post will be related to the overall theme of Advanced PPC Strategies, the actual topics of each post are up for grabs! So, what do you want to read about? Post your suggestions in the comments.

To get you started, I’ve listed some suggestions below. Please list the ones you like best or add your own. Thanks!
