Increasing yearly revenue growth by +100 %

Data aggregation based on value per click
By grouping keywords in adgroups based on their value per click, it meant that even though smart bidding tries to cluster similar performing queries we could hold a strategic advantage by easing this process, especially in low data situations like the always highly valuable long-tail keywords.
Automated adgroup and campaign level search query analysis
Themed grouping of search query data allowed for intelligent use of N gram logic by turning big data into actionable data. By having different themed levels to apply the automated negative keyword setup on, we were able to limit wasteful spend, while retaining as much revenue production as possible in an automated manner.
Tailored campaign specific audiences
Smarter segmentation and grouping of campaigns opened up the ability to tailor audience lists towards certain segments specific to the given campaigns. This allowed us to feed the smart-bidding algorithm, with extremely high-value audience signals.
