266% Higher CTR

We increased the CTR of Search Ads by 266% while lowering the average position (mathematically increasing as represented in the graphs). It was highly challenging as normally CTR decreases when average position falls.

This was done by using Single Keyword Ad Group (SKAG) structure with multiple relevant ad copies.

The Challenge

  1. Urbanclap is a mobile marketplace for local services. It helps its customers hire trusted professionals for all their service needs. Hence, its business is a hyper-local business and the management of it digital marketing campaigns is tedious.
  2. A lot of search queries are long tail search queries and play around local location criterion. We could see millions of search queries collected over a period of time in multiple cities and locations and dozens of categories/business verticals.
  3. It was like running a mini digital marketing agency within urbanclap itself due to the varied nature of its businesses.


  1. Strategic usage of algorithms for repetitive tasks where patterns can be built and implemented precisely.
  2. Using human creativity to understand consumer intention and psychology for engaging ad copies
  3. Building customized tools using AdWords Scripts with frugal front-end on Google sheets to minimize coding time.

Search Query Builder

Search Query builder helped to look at the search queries of the users for which are the ads were triggering from Broad Match or DSA. Then, based on the data they were qualified as 'Good' or 'Bad'. Finally, the script adds 'Good' ones as Exact match and removes 'Bad' ones and puts as Negative. See Query Builder in action. It adds relevant 'interior designer' queries while negating irrelevant 'interior design' queries.

Automated Reports

Any performance improvements can be achieved only when the levers that drive that performance are measured accurately and regularly. So, reporting automation becomes really important. We track all the metrics of Google AdWords and Google Analytics through API on Google Sheets. Also, the data is sent every morning on email so that if anything goes wrong/right we are able to take prompt action.
