AdWords Profiler FAQ
What is the AdWords Profiler?
The AdWords Profiler is a powerful tool that enables you to spy on the Google AdWords campaigns of your competitors:
Reveal your competitors' AdWords strategies and their budgets
Analyze the ads and the keywords of your competitors
Discover new competitors and find new keywords
Internationalize your AdWords campaigns
The AdWords Profiler could not find some ads. Why?
It can have the following reasons if the ads of a website could not be found:
1. The website does not advertise for one of the keywords that we monitor. The keywords that we monitor represent
the vast majority of all searches that are done every month. Details can be found below.
2. The website was not listed when we checked the keyword. If the website did not run ads for the keyword when we
checked it, the ad cannot be found in the analysis. If it is listed when we recheck the keyword then the ad will be
displayed in the AdWords Profiler.
3. Of course, it is also likely that the domain does not advertise on Google AdWords.
Although the AdWords Profiler shows most of the ads that a website runs, it does not show every single ad or ranking of a
site. Use the AdWords Profiler to get new ideas for your own campaigns.
We monitor nearly all keywords the deliver a significant amount ov visitors:
We monitor the rankings and ads for millions of popular keywords. The top 1,000 keywords account for 10.6% of all
searches, and every fifth search is for one of the most popular 10,000 keywords. 20-25% of all queries have never been
searched before. This means that any further keyword after the top 10,000 ones belongs to the "long tail." Long tail
keywords are very specific keywords that aren't searched very often.
The millions of keywords that we check represent the vast majority of the keywords that are regularly searched on Google
and that regularly deliver the most visitors:
A: The keywords that we check. These keywords have many searches each
month. They account for the vast majority of visitors that search engines
send to websites.
B: These are keywords with a very low search volume. We do not check
these keywords as they aren't searched for very often. These keywords do
not deliver a significant amount of visitors.
