Google Testing 3 Headlines in AdWords
There’s a new PPC ad format available in beta for some advertisers where AdWords displays up to three headlines and two longer descriptions. The new ad format not only expands the real estate of paid results within Google search results but also dynamically combines headlines and descriptions deemed most likely to perform best.
Google’s new responsive search ads are available in beta in AdWords, though not for all advertisers yet. The new ad format continues Google’s focus on machine learning to help improve campaign performance via automation.
According to Google, the new responsive search ads can help advertisers:
- Create flexible adverts that adapt to device widths, providing more room to convey marketing messages with prospects
- Save time by providing multiple headlines and description options, enabling AdWords to show the most relevant combinations
- Reach more prospects with multiple headline and description options that provide your PPC adverts with the opportunity to compete in more auctions and match more queries
- Increase ad group performance by attracting additional clicks and conversions that your existing text ads aren’t capturing, since responsive search ads help advertisers compete in more auctions
Up To Three Headlines
When creating the new responsive search ads advertisers can create as many as 15 advert headlines, with AdWords dynamically combining up to three headlines that are deemed to perform well. The dynamic nature of these new ad formats means that advertisers will need to consider the various combinations of advert headlines. The best practice of writing headlines that directly relate to the keywords within the ad group holds true.
Two Longer Descriptions
In addition to more headlines, the new responsive search ads include two 90 character descriptions, differing from the current one 80 character description. Advertisers can create 4 longer descriptions in the new ad format, again, with Google dynamically selected up to 2 descriptions to be included.
Pin To Specific Positions
By default, any headline or description can display in any position, in any order. There is, however, an option to pin specific headlines and descriptions to specific positions to help minimise the automation from AdWords.
