In this video interview PPC pioneer and expert Andrew Goodman explores some of the pay-per-click problems that result from a site redesign. PPC campaigns aren't stand-alone, but have a relationship with your website, especially the landing pages they're pointed to. There are some typical problems that can result from a site redesign. For example, sometimes all the site URLs are changed, so remember to change the destination URLs in your PPC campaigns.

This could cost you Suggestions: Don't do a site redesign too close to the holidays. Don't panic. And consider some ads to URLs that won't change or to your homepage. This way you can observe if your volume remains relatively the same on some ads, even though the new ads will show lower performance for a while.
