Here are some key things to note:

To manage your expectations, please don’t expect miracles immediately. There are many factors to be taken into consideration while the campaign is being optimised. For example, we expect month 3 results to be better than month 1 results because of the optimisation process.

mobile searchAs Google/Bing begins the optimisation process, which can take up to 6 weeks, we will see the campaign’s performance increase. 

At this stage, we monitor the performance per day to ensure it performs as should be; allowing the platform to optimise the campaign’s information such as the relevancy of the keywords, landing page relevance, amount of clicks, cost per click etc.

Please do not search for or click on your ads to prevent budget wastage. When you search for yourself and don’t click on the ad, this counts as an impression. Since you didn’t click when it was shown, Google/Bing starts to think the ad isn’t relevant to the user, lowering the quality score.

This overall reduces the likelihood of Google/Bing showing the ad. In the early stages in the campaign, it is important to keep the data as real as possible so Google/Bing shows the ads.
