Google AdWords Case Study

Google AdWords Case Study

Chris is a very savvy businessman.  He runs two online stores that sell wholesale goods to dealers and the general public, and makes enough money to support his wife and their 6 children.

Chris contacted me last year and asked if I could review his online advertising accounts -he thought he might not be getting the highest return on his investment.  I did some digging and found:

  • January – July 2016 he’d spent over $20K for his Google AdWords campaigns, and only 14K revenue from those campaigns
  • His website had been updated, resulting in changes to the URL structure – This meant that every time someone clicked an ad, they received a Page Not Found message. In Chris’s words, he was paying to send customers to pages that didn’t exist.
  • It also meant that all organic links to his previously indexed pages were broken.
  • AdWords campaigns were created by an SEO company in June 2015, but no changes were ever made to that account. The company billed Chris $300 each month – a total of $3,600 before he cancelled the account




  • Spend: $20,000

  • Spend: $11,000
