Google has announced the launch of Enhanced CPC, a new automated bidding feature in AdWords, aimed at helping users improve ROI on campaigns with manual bidding. It uses the campaign’s historical conversion tracking data to automatically adjust the Max CPC bid based on the likelihood that the ad will convert.

Google says this should lead to more conversions while reducing the overall CPA. Take a look at this video:

Google points to the following as examples of what Enhanced CPC can do:

  • Adjust your bid depending on how well a particular search or display network partner site in the Google network has converted for you in the past
  • Recognize when specific words within a keyword (e.g. ‘kits‘) convert well and adjust your bid when users search on variations of these terms (e.g. ‘model airplane kits for children‘)
  • Detect attributes such as the user’s location, language settings, browser, and operating system and analyze how these attributes may impact the likelihood of your ad converting

Conversion tracking must be enabled on you campaigns if you want to use Enhanced CPC. The feature can be found in the "Bidding and Budgeting" section of the settings tab.

    I think this new system of bidding will help more conversion. However, if the budget set is low. The effect can be reversed. So, as per my opinion till the time you don’t have good amount daily budget or unlimited budget. Don’t try this method. This is what I think. Please let me know if I am wrong.

    Thank You readers..

    Google booted me out of their program years ago so I’m really looking forward to the day someone comes out with a tool better than Google’s. Just saying.

    I’m guessing they just tweaked and re-branded the old Conversion Optimizer. Unless I missed something.

    My initial impressions are that this doesn’t look like much of an enhancement.
