Google Ads

Paid Search Ads

Responsive Ads: These ads cycle through up to 15 headlines and four descriptions to serve ads tailored to individual queries in real time. Check out our responsive search ad template for tips on RSA ad copy.

Dimensions:

  • Headline length: Up to 30 characters. The headline is your ad’s main attention-grabber, briefly summarizing your offer or message.
  • Display URL: Taken from your ad’s final URL. The webpage address shown in the ad gives users an idea of where they’ll land after clicking.
  • Display URL path fields: Up to two fields, each 15 characters long (optional). These fields provide additional context about the landing page, like “/Sale” or “/NewProducts.”
  • Description length: Up to 90 characters. Descriptions offer more details about your product or service, elaborating on what was introduced in the headline.

 

Dynamic: Dynamic Search Ads are created for you by Google using information from your website content and a short description blurb that you provide. They look identical to any other Search ad when shown on the SERP, but can be helpful for businesses with a nicely built-out website that want to leverage that (and Google) to freshen up their ad copy strategy.

Dimensions:

  • Description length: Up to 90 characters. Descriptions offer more details about your product or service, elaborating on what was introduced in the headline.
