New Book from AdGooroo Founder Shares Secrets of Search Advertising


Stokes argues three percent of search advertisers dominate Google AdWords

SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Richard Stokes, AdGooroo founder and chief gooroo, reveals successful search marketing tactics known only by a small amount of search advertising’s elite in his new book, Mastering Search Advertising – How the Top 3% of Search Advertisers Dominate Google AdWords.

“Mastering Search Advertising conveys a ton of insights that go well beyond well-trodden AdWords knowledge. It puts hard numbers on a lot of things that I’ve believed but been unable to prove, about what makes the top 3 percent dominate the search engines,” says Perry Marshall, author of Ultimate Guide to Google AdWords. “…Those who want to prevail in hyper-competitive markets need this book.”

In the book, Stokes not only describes the basics of launching a pay-per-click campaign but also dissects the complex practice into a step-by-step process focused on achieving outstanding marketing strategy for any business. With more than 15 years experience in the industry, Stokes offers readers graphic representations and case studies, as well as his own real-life examples, based on years of competitive intelligence data from AdGooroo, the same data utilized by top search agencies and brand marketers.

“Readily available marketing tips and tutorials, accessible on the Internet and other public forums, tend to be outdated or incorrect, while the techniques that really deliver results are kept close to the chest of those in the dominating minority,” explains Stokes. “This doesn’t have to be the case, and the book provides the majority of search marketers with the tools and insights they need to improve their performance and level the playing field.”

Mastering Search Advertising – How the Top 3% of Search Advertisers Dominate Google AdWords is available through Amazon.com and all major book stores. More information and complimentary sample chapters are available on AdGooroo’s Web site at http://www.adgooroo.com/mastering_search_advertising.php.

  2. Hello SEOer,

    while I understand your frustration at the negative experience you described in your comment above, AdOperationsOnline.com is not the place to use for retaliation purposes against any company or individual.

    Your open letter to Chris from AdGooroo along with threats to create online buzz around had to be removed from the comments – its only purpose was clearly retaliatory.

    Thanks for your understanding.
