Setting up contextual advertising in Israel

Culturally, Israel can rather be attributed as a country of Western civilization, belonging more to European culture, which undoubtedly will not cancel the originality, the ancient history of the people, and linguistic and cultural features. Before setting up contextual advertising in Israel, it is important to consider all of the above points.

Language targeting

In Israel, 49% of the inhabitants use Hebrew to communicate – the same language is the state language. 18% use Arabic here, it has been given a special status at the state level. Also, 15% of Israelis speak Russian, about 2% each speak Yiddish, French and English.

That is, the country is quite multinational. Therefore, when setting up contextual advertising for Israel, we need to create at least two separate campaigns – in Hebrew and in Russian. Or you can try three to reach those who use Arabic in communication.

Geo targeting

Since most of the country is actually located in the desert, there is life here only where there is irrigation and infrastructure is provided. That’s why we need to focus our geo-targeting exclusively on densely populated cities (Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Haifa) and the nearest radius around them.

High cost of advertising

A click on Google Ads in Israel costs a lot, so it is important for us to control advertising costs and conduct ongoing analytics of our advertising activity.

Try to “selling” keywords that contain the prefix “buy”, “order”, “cost”, “price”. Place geo-referenced and branded queries in a separate group. This will allow you to save your advertising budget and increase conversion by satisfying the user’s intent.

For online stores, use Google Shopping product ads. It will allow you to get cheaper clicks due to the fact that it shows the price and photo of the product right on the issue. Not all stores use this ad yet, which means there is much less competition for it.
