ProFlowers, 1800Flowers Killing It in Paid Search Ahead of Mother’s Day

Advertisers in the flowers and gifts sector spent more than $15.4 million on Google AdWords desktop and tablet search in Q1 2014, “averaging a healthy 4.24 percent click-through rate and $1.66 average cost per click,” according to research from AdGooroo.

Within the flowers and gifts category for desktop and tablet targeting, AdGooroo said most advertisers paid an average of $4.70 for keywords like “flowers,” “flower delivery,” “flower,” and “florist”. Even branded terms were competitive, AdGooroo said. A branded term for the domain Flowers.com owned by FTD had 72 advertisers in Q1 2014.

Leaders in spend for the flowers and gifts category for desktop/tablet were 1800Flowers.com, ProFlowers.com, and FTD.com – all floral wire service companies comprised of networks of local florists.

ProFlowers.com showed more than 23.5 million desktop and tablet impressions in Q1 2014, while 1800Flowers.com saw 23 million impressions and FTD.com saw 13.5 million impressions.
