Here's the results of an A/B test we ran for the keyword "entry level jobs".

This experiment really surprised us. The use of both "Entry Level Jobs" and "Entry Level Positions" seemed to work best when used in the headline. The use of the keyword in both the headline and display URL seemed to impact click-through rate (CTR). Using a dollar range in the headline seemed to attract eyes of users, but didn't perform as expected. Short action words in the description text such as "Hiring Now" and "Apply Today" received the most clicks. All users clicked on ads that capitalized the first letter of each word.
