This is to serve as a warning to you.  A few months back I posted about how you should be very wary of keyword matches when running your Adwords campaigns, and that the default “broad match” that everyone tends to use can cause a lot of wasted budget.  Well, now Google has made things […]

Understanding the basics of SEM, SEO, PPC
