SEM Ad impression:

To improve your product rating, you should analyse the ad impression matrix. Impression and clicks are two different terminologies in advertising. Impression means that a customer search matches your keyword, but the customer does not click on your advertising ad. Sometimes, if a customer searches for a product, your brand ad appears in suggestion and, customers see it but do not click on this. There is no need to become a pleasure if your impression increase. It is only the policy of Google. Sometimes, some products have less impression but, no of clicks are high and, it’s a success of your brand.

SEM Ad clicks

SEM Ad clicks:

When a customer searches for a product on the google search engine, then google rank your advertisement ad on first, second and, so on, then the customer clicks on your ad and see the standard and review of your brand or product. Then it is counted as several clicks. Several clicks decide your ad standard and your business progress. Click-through-rate (CTR) can be calculated by counting no of impressions and clicks. Google shows no clicks in percentage. No of the clicks areas.

For example, if no of impressions is 1800 and no of clicks are 200, the CTR is;

CTR = 11.11%

So, your focus should be on CTR. If a marketer or a businessman bid for a brand advertisement with google, he paid according to cost per click. If you choose the keywords and more users visit your brand ad, your CPC can be decreased. If CPC decreases, your budget will reduce for advertising. It’s a plus point for your business. The cost-per-click can be calculated as.

For example, if you have a cost of $250 for your brand advertisement and 500 total number of clicks then the cost per click is $0.5. From the above formula, you can analyse your budget for an advertisement. If you stand in a competitive market, you can analyse the cost-per-clicks value of another marketer.
