Google AdWords adds Goals in the Opportunities Tab

June 29th, 2010

For advertisers looking for a shortcut to switch up their Google AdWords campaign, a new feature has just been released in the Opportunities tab; goals allow users to make simple changes to their campaign without investing a lot of effort.

The new feature gives users several options to change their campaigns:
  • Maintain or Decrease Cost – Identify ideas that might help you maintain or decrease your current spend.
  • Increase Traffic – Identify ideas that can help you get more traffic at varying cost levels.
  • Balance Cost and Traffic – Review a mix of ideas that are aimed at either increasing traffic or decreasing costs.

This is what you can expect to see when you go through the process:
