Google AdWords & new responsive search ads

Google’s new advertisement format (Google Adwords) is now equipped with Beta. This means that now you can add as many headlines and key phrases to your advertisement as possible. Google will combine them and make various combinational alternatives and try them on an experimental basis. The combination which garners the most amount of traffic and boosts viewership will be selected as the ft option by Google. This way Google AdWords is basically doing the work for you by helping you do out the most effective and suitable combination. This beta feature will be available under Google AdWords, which however, may not be available to everyone yet.

Google ads are way more responsive and flexible in action with very little preparation required. They are capable of diverse features such as change in sizes, appearance and format on their own.

                                       Google AdWords

Remember that this feature works only when you add the “ads” to ad groups where some ads already exist. No point if you think they will function for individual ads too. There are chances that few of your combinations may not even show. This is all in line with the Google policy were only those ads are shown which have the highest traffic gathering capacity. As per the policy, the ad may show up to 3 headlines and 2 descriptions, these being the minimum numbers. But remember, the description or even the ad itself should in no way violate the Ad Word policy; else the content may be prohibited for use.

The main reason for this policy is to help Google achieve greater integration with ad words. The benefits of responsive ad words is also said to extend to small business and marketing teams, basically the ones with limited resources. However, one important question remains, i.e., whether Google ad word search is the best option for your business. If your business has legal compliances, or there is a requirement for proper disclosure of all necessary information, then in that case responsive ads can be a bit tough to handle as ad components combine themselves, and only a particular combination is shown to the final users. However, if your business does not require the follow of stringent rules and policies, then this feature is definitely worth a try.

Responsive ad searches are however still pretty new and there is requirement for more experimentation in the field only then can it be known whether it is impactful for all sorts of traders and businesses.
