Tip: Use sitelinks to highlight cool and unique sales, promotions, or benefits – and update as those change.

Tip: Use AdWords labels to track new expansions, tests, and top and/or bottom performers – and simplify your life.
Tip: Remember: DKI doesn’t work with sitelinks.

Tip: Stay on top of Google Betas; one could be a game-changer for your account.
Tip: Segment new vs. returning customers for reporting by using RLSA.
