Search phrases #

Search phrases are the phrases to be used by buyers to search for products. They can consist of one or several words. You can set such phrases, that will initiate display of advertisement for selected products, brand, or shop section in a special block in search results and at category pages. The advertisement will be displayed, if a customer's query contains the complete phrase. Meanwhile, word forms in the phrase are automatically considered, and the query can be longer than the search phrase. For example, you have set a search phrase "refrigerator", then your product will be shown for the following queries: "refrigerators", "Bosch refrigerator", "white refrigerators" or "two-compartment refrigerator".

Prepositions are ignored in search phrases. Therefore, the phrases differing in prepositions only should not be added. For example, search phrases "spray against sore throat" and "spray for sore throat" will cover the same customer queries.

For a "Brand shelf" type advertisement campaign, search phrases can be set for individual products only.

For a "Brand shelf" type advertisement campaign, specify more common phrases to make sure your advertisement is displayed for a large number of products.

You can view the information on displays, clicks, average rates, expenditures and CTR in the CSV file.

Explanations for some fields:

  • Product price—current price (at the time when the file is being downloaded).
  • Page type–display area:
    • Product description page.
    • Search and categories :
      • Search—displays in search results based on search phrase.
      • Categories—displays at the page of categories (not in search results).
  • Prerequisite for display:
    • Display area Search—your search phrase used for product display.
    • Display area Category—name of the category in which your product was displayed.
  • CTR (click-through rate)—ratio of clicks to the number of views.

We recommend noting the number of views, CTR, and orders. High CTR shows that buyers are interested in your product and that it gets clicked often. If there are not many orders or displays for such a product, this means that it falls to advertisement blocks not often enough. To correct this, we recommend increasing the rate–the product can win more auctions and will be displayed to users more often. If CTR is, on the contrary, low, we recommend reducing the rate.
