The Google Ads Extensions You NEED To Know About

Ad extensions are a powerful feature within Google Ads that allow advertisers to supplement their ads with additional information, thereby increasing visibility and engagement. When used effectively, ad extensions can significantly improve ad performance and drive higher click-through rates (CTRs) and conversions.

Here's how to optimise ad extensions to maximise the effectiveness of your Google Ads campaigns:

Utilise Sitelink Extensions: Sitelink extensions enable you to showcase additional links to specific pages on your website within your ad. Use sitelink extensions to direct users to relevant landing pages, product categories, or promotional offers. Ensure that your sitelinks are descriptive, engaging, and aligned with the user's search intent.

Employ Callout Extensions: Callout extensions allow you to highlight key benefits, features, or offers related to your products or services. Use callout extensions to emphasise unique selling points, promotions, or free shipping offers. Keep your callouts concise and compelling, providing users with valuable information that encourages them to click on your ad.

Include Structured Snippet Extensions: Structured snippet extensions enable you to highlight specific aspects of your products or services, such as product categories, brands, or service offerings. Leverage structured snippets to provide users with additional context about your offerings and differentiate your ad from competitors. Choose relevant headers and values that resonate with your target audience and align with their interests.

Add Location Extensions: If you have a physical storefront or offer services in specific locations, utilise location extensions to display your business address, phone number, and a clickable "Get Directions" button directly within your ad. Location extensions help increase foot traffic to your brick-and-mortar location and drive local customers to engage with your business.

Enable Call Extensions: Call extensions allow users to call your business directly from the search results, making it easier for them to contact you and inquire about your products or services. Enable call extensions to capture leads and conversions from users who prefer to communicate over the phone. Additionally, track call conversions to measure the effectiveness of your ad campaigns in driving offline interactions.

Experiment with Promotion Extensions: Promotion extensions allow you to showcase special offers, discounts, or sales directly within your ad. Take advantage of promotion extensions during holiday seasons, sales events, or limited-time promotions to attract attention and incentivise clicks. Include compelling promotions, such as percentage discounts or free shipping offers, to entice users to engage with your ad.

By optimising your ad extensions and leveraging their full potential, you can enhance the performance of your Google Ads campaigns, increase visibility, and drive more clicks and conversions.

Continuously monitor and analyse the performance of your ad extensions to identify opportunities for improvement and refine your strategies accordingly.
