Can I PPC bid to promote A2 Hosting?
A. Yes, but please do not bid on our corporate name, variation of our corporate name, misspelling or any keyword that contains a portion of it including "A2", "A2 Hosting", "A2Hosting". Focus on bids for keywords like "fast hosting", "PHP hosting" and "WordPress hosting". Please contact us if you need help brainstorming keywords. Make sure to add a2, a2 hosting, a2hosting, a2hosting.com and a2 web hosting as negative campaign keywords.
