This book addresses the underlying foundational elements, both theoretical and methodological, of sponsored search. As such, the contents are less affected by the ever-changing implementation aspects of technology. Rather than focusing on the how, this book examines what causes the how. Why do certain keywords work, while others do not? Why does that ad work well, when others that are similar do not? Why does a key phrase cost a given amount? Why do we measure what we do in keyword advertising? This book speaks to that curiosity to understand why we do what we do in sponsored search. The content flows through the major components of any sponsored search effort, regardless of the underlying technology or client or product. The book addresses keywords, ads, consumers, pricing, competitors, analytics, branding, marketing and advertising, integrating these separate components into an incorporated whole. The focus is on the critical elements, with ample illustrations and with enough detail to lead the interested reader to further inquiry.

If you are serious about keyword advertising, this book merits the number one position on your bookshelf.'

"Jim Jansen proves that theory can make practice a whole lot more profitable. In this book, he explains how and why most search marketers miss their targets, and shows the reader exactly how to construct effective search marketing campaigns. While search marketing rules and features come and go, Jim's insights stay evergreen. If you've ever wondered what Human Information Processing Theory, Credence Goods, and George Carlin's Seven Words You Can't Say on Television can teach you about profiting from tiny online ads, Jim's your man. I'm going to quote from this book a lot, and people will think I'm a genius." Howie Jacobson, Author, Google AdWords For Dummies, askHowie.com
