Which is your recommended report?
It really depends upon what you’re trying to achieve. We suggest you spend some time running reports and becoming familiar with report insights to ensure you are getting the most out of your SpeedPPC Partnership.
The keyword research tool doesn't bring me any results?
We integrate with the SEMRush database which has data on 20 billion keywords for 130 countries. However, the Internet is a big place, so there is a decent chance that for smaller websites, SEMRush hasn’t managed to reach them yet and you may get a "Not Found" error. Try searching for a more popular website to make sure that it’s working.
Should you include Negative Keywords?
There are many reasons why your keyword strategy should include negative keywords because negative keywords let advertising platforms such as Google Ads know that you wish to filter our specific search terms because they are not relevant to the products or services you offer.
