Search Audience

Google has audiences that fit into the different marketing objectives, from awareness to loyalty. You can add audience targeting to ad groups and reach people based on who they are, their interests and habits, what they’re actively researching, or how they have interacted with your business. Audience targeting can boost your campaign's performance by reaching people browsing websites, using apps, or watching videos.


Google's machine learning

Google's machine learning allows you to deliver more relevance with responsive search ads. Responsive search ads let you create an ad that adapts to show more text—and more relevant messages—to your customers. The more headlines and descriptions you enter, the more opportunities Google Ads has to serve ads that more closely match your potential customers’ search queries, which can improve your ad performance.
