The Meadows - PPC Services & Google Ads Management by Astute Communications

When we began managing Google Search Ads for the Meadows, we inherited an account that was facing 4 major hurdles: Each property had its own ads account, bidding on low intent/non competitive keywords, no audience definition, tracking and Analytics were not set up properly. We decided to change the structure of the account.


  • Establish accurate goal tracking in Google Analytics & Google Ads
  • Change the keyword strategy to more intent-based search queries
  • Define the target audience on geography and income
  • Build focused campaigns that enable informed adjustments
  • Improve search impression share and CTR with narrower targeting
  • Increase conversion rate and improving on cost per conversion

When first starting our engagement for SEO management, the Meadows main site was experiencing a severe loss of keyword rankings and organic traffic after a site migration. We were tasked with identifying and fixing the source of these problems, and ultimately landed on a two-tiered approach:

1. Contribute research-focused content opportunities for each of The Meadows properties.

2. Ensure that The Meadows websites meet Google’s technical requirements to improve organic rankings.

We support The Meadows content team through keyword and competitive research while ensuring they stay current on SEO best practices. We also work to improve or remove existing content to maximize the crawl budget of individual sites.

While most of our design work for the Meadows lives in a digital space, we have had some recent opportunities to design print collateral for them, as well. These include editorial print ads, folders, inserts, and retreat flyers.
