Our SEM tips:

  1. Don’t put all links to homepage – Always link to the page where the relevant contents can be found.
  2. More descriptive page – Always describe what the page is about rather than using pictures or videos. Google can only rely on the title and caption to read pictures and videos therefore contents are limited.
  3. Always use the target keyword in your content. Example: If you own a fish store and your targeted keyword is “guppy”, the page you link your advertisement to must have the word “guppy” in it, rather than general word like “fish”.
