    So I got pretty decent at using Adwords. I am setting him up a very targeted animated banner ad through the display network. Just one question, so he wants the Adwords campaign to have a coupon site, and track the conversions through that site. The reason is he doesn't want the people visiting his site to see these promotions, that way we can keep it extremely exclusive and targeted. So is there any way to make another page on that site only visable to Adwords people and not through normal visitors? Or should I just download a Wordpress theme make a sales page and a domain related to the business and track conversions on completely different site.

    Thanks

    just put up another page and do not link to it from anywhere except your campaign.

    If he wants a different site as a lander that's dedicated to the product review and sharing the promotional codes, then that is what you should do, and you should probably do it on a different domain.

    Or, if he wants it to be a special promotional page on his brand's website, then yes, you want to make a landing page that is not linked to by any other pages on the website (where organic traffic is going), and there you have your sales copy and special offer. That's where you send the traffic.

    And do you have any reference videos on youtube. My learning is more visual than reading, Im the type of person that struggles to understand but once I get it, I can teach it to any kind of learner.

    So should I try searching setting up landing page, or page on site not linked to any other pages, is there a type of technique or name for that?

    Yes, it's extremely easy with PHP just pass the variable in the url like so:

    www.example.com/?us=y

    Code:
    <?php
    //The variable US means "unlock state"
    $unlock = $_GET['us'];
    if($unlock == "y")
    {
    // load the page you want
    }
    else
    {
    // send them off to a different page
    }
    ?>
    
    This kinda stuff is sorta my specialty so if you need advanced help or coding shoot me a PM and I'm sure we can work something out.

    The following is really not needed. Make your new page address cryptic like mydomain.x zy/landlingpage1.php. If you do not tell your organic visitors the address of the new page how will they find it? They won't. Focus instead on 2 landing pages for a/b testing with your campaign for conversions.

    Damn you guys are insane! Funny I was just a t a family BBQ and we were discussing analytics, and excel formulas... hahha. But what I am thinking is that this guy needs a new site completely. It pretty much sucks compared to the competition. That can be outsourced to one of you guys if you want or Ill just download the resturaunt theme by called Gusteau by theme forest. But I really like the a/b testing method great idea so this way I can test out different pages style, sales funnel, and create a compelling campaign. Im also doing his Google Places account are any of you into that. Ive got the theory down, have you guys actually ranked one yet?

    Why not just use analytics to track the adsense leads through your site? You know you can set conversion goals right?

    IM people most of the time don't know how to talk themselves into a million dollar client, more likely talk their way out. So why hate on the guy and just help him out?

    Dude. You got a high paying client and you're asking us about the basics of Adwords.

    I highly recommend finding an Adwords expert agency and outsource to them. Pay the agency, and bill your client. Trust me, this will take a load of work off your hands, get paid, and have expert work performed for your client. Win win situation.

    If you're in it for the learning experience. Register with Google Engage, watch all the Adwords tutorials and online classes. Take the exam and be certified. All this is free at Engage.

    PM me if you need help along the way. I'm in the same situation as you and am doing what I described above.

    Ok let me clear up the confusion. I used the title millionaire client to spark more interest from the BHW. The client is a millionaire, but right now since he is my first client for Adwords client. I set up the deal to do it at cost. This way I can have a client who has a budget and I can make a case study. Or a beginning to my portfolio. The original question was more on technique, not secondarily how to set up the page, but more on technique to find out a way so the organic visitors could not see the advertisement and only the Adwords traffic. So basically I prove results and he gives me his business, kind of like a free trial. He has three other businesses and not to mention his assistant sent me over a proposal from the last person working for them, and they were paying them $600.00 a month to have someone manage their social networking... Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube, plus respond to any negative reviews on Yelp. So that's where my inspiration is coming from. i already have become part of the Google Engage Program, jumped the gun on the test and failed. Pretty crazy I got a really high score, but I think you need at least over 90% to pass the test.... Still studying. So I am also doing his Google Places for him. If alll goes well I feel that I can make easily $1600.00 a month from the guy doing his SEO, Adwords, ORM. And that's currently what I maake at my fulltime job. So yeah it would definitely change my life alot if I can pull this off.

    Why don't you just install Wordpress on a new folder on the site. Simple. Easy. Solved.

    You can also set up the page so that it is noindex so that google does not cache the page.
