Secret #9 - Put keywords in your ad text in Google Adwords
Did you know that the keywords that are part of the text of your ads in Google Adwords will appear in BOLD? If someone searches for "plastic widgets" and your ad text reads "50% off plastic widgets", then the phrase 'plastic widgets' will appear in bold when your ad is displayed.
