How to use Fiuti to set your single keyword ad group (SKAG) campaign in 4 easy steps:

Having a great account structure in Google Ads is one of the most important factors to attaining ROI positive campaigns.

The Single Keyword Ad Group (SKAG) method uses a single key word in an ad group to allow you to target different ads. You can learn more about what SKAG campaigns are and why you should be using them here.

With Fiuti's SKAG tool, you can generate the perfect ad campaign within minutes.

Here is how you get started:

1. First, select your keywords

If you have a list of desired keywords, drop them into the editor:

keywords for SKAGs

If you don't have your list of keywords yet or are looking for new ones to use, discover new ones with our keyword planner by clicking “find new keywords” at the bottom of the editor.

keywords for SKAGs

Enter some keywords or use a site as a starting point to find their keywords. Sort results by competition & volume.

Select desired keywords and hit “CREATE A NEW CAMPAIGN” at the bottom of the tool to use them as the base of your ad campaign.

You can also use our mixer tool to generate a diverse range of new keywords in seconds using existing words:

Input keywords -- add or remove boxes to add more variation types to create multiple keywords in bulk.

When using the mixer, the match type should be “Broad” for best results as the results will generate your root keyword list, and you can generate all match types from there.

2. Next, choose the match types to include in the SKAG

Fiuti will automatically generate the match types you select. SKAG generator

There are three different match types to focus on when search engine marketing:

  1. Exact → Exact match will show your ad to searches that either exactly or veryyyyyy closely match your term

      Exact matches are expressed like this: [advertising agencies]

  2. Phrase match → Phrase match ads will show your ad on searches that match a phrase or close variation of that phrase, adding more words before and/or after ONLY. Your keyword phrase stays intact.

      Phrase matches are expressed like this: advertising agencies

      It can appear for searches that have words before or after the phrase but not in the middle, eg:

        Would appear for: advertising agencies in Detroit

        Would NOT appear for: advertising and marketing agencies

  3. Modifier → Modified broad match allows ads to show on searches that contain the selected, modified term, in any order.

      Modified broad match types are expressed like this: +advertising +agencies

        With modified searches, you can appear for the kind of search query that's relevant but maybe not something you would have thought of

Broad match: we don’t advise focusing on pure broad match match type for SKAGS: broad match is the default campaign type. It shows your ad for terms that Google deems relevant and related. While it is useful during the discovery process of a campaign, you will likely spend a lot of money before seeing much ROI because the results can be soooo broad. Use it at your own discretion!

3. Thirdly, add unique dynamic ads and extensions

You can customize your ppc campaign with extensions directly from Fiuti. Extensions allow you to add more information to your ad, therefore increasing ad relevance and making it more attractive for users to click on.

Start by selecting the kind of extension you want to create.
