How to Create Search Campaigns from Shopping Campaigns? 


Google Search Ads offer one of the largest networks of potential buyers, and search ads can help drive more traffic to your Shopify store. Google Search Ads are relatively easier to set up, and they offer us a lot of control over our audiences and how we target them. However, the best part and the worst part about search ads is keywords.

Keywords are the building blocks of search ads. It is essential that you select the keywords carefully. There are different data points such as click-through rates and conversion rates you should consider when deciding keywords and their initial bids. Gathering enough data to make an informed decision can take be a waiting game.
