The costs of paid media are increasing in competitive markets, so it’s essential to allocate budget within the most impactful channels. By identifying the share of search results owned by paid ads (either PPC or shopping), you can understand where paid channels will be seen prominently above organic listings and where Google’s rich results are dominating the SERP space.

Find your marketing mix

  • SERPsketch gives a fully integrated view of all elements of a search results page, so you understand where other channels can take over from paid media or where paid could take a bigger share.

  • Use SERPsketch to better decide if or when to make a change to your paid ads, by knowing the real space your paid activity owns amongst other channels and features.

Understand why your PPC clickthrough rate is changing

  • If you encounter a sudden change in CTR, use SERPsketch to understand the content that Google has placed directly above the ads feature that might be affecting your ad campaigns.
  • If Google puts a engagingly rich snippet directly above your ads, it could have a massive impact on the CTR. You can decide whether to shift your ad budget to other keywords or to build out your own organic content to gain that rich snippet.
