Traffic & Acquisition Manager – Toys“R”Us


Toys“R”Us: 1,640 stores worldwide and a web presence in 12 countries. But in an extremely competitive online retail environment, how can it gain the paid search visibility it needs to stay ahead of the pack?


Years of experience working with online retailers means our Product Feed solution on Google and Bing is proven to maximise visibility and ROI.
We tested different product categories to identify which keywords generate most traffic with minimum CPC.
We also discovered that it is better to focus on specific keywords to keep cost down while increasing traffic and ROI.

With Product Feed, Toys“R”Us can promote only products that are currently in stock, increasing the probability of conversion and reducing negative consumer experience. New items can be promoted automatically, capturing the moment of maximum demand to drive profitability.


More efficient use of keywords decreased CPC by 30%, as well as increasing conversion rate and boosting sales by 879%.

The increase in ROI on Product Feed campaigns was more than twice the original target.
