Google Announces Updates To AdWords Dynamic Search Ads

Also known as DSAs, Dynamic Search Ads are designed to help marketers reach people who are specifically searching for their services and products. They have the ability to use your website to target your ads and fill in the gaps of your pay-per-click campaigns. In addition, you don’t need to actively manage your ads or keywords. If you own a large inventory or well-developed website, DSAs are ideal for your online marketing needs.

Even if you have a well-managed Google Ads account that comprises of many keywords, it is still recommended that you use DSAs as that account can still miss relevant searches, get out of sync with what’s actually available on your website, or experience delays receiving ads written for new products. So, why miss this extra chance to increase your conversion rates? Find out what the Google Ads Dynamic Search Ads can do for you:
