Failing to use ad extensions on Google Search Ads is one of the biggest mistakes made by inexperienced advertisers. Extensions are extra relevant information added to an ad, helping businesses showcase all their unique selling points in only one search result. Adding extensions won’t guarantee that they will show on ads all the time. Google uses artificial intelligence to display the most suitable ones when it considers they will improve your ad performance. Also, a minimum Ad Rank is required for extensions to show.
To help you choose the best ones for your campaigns, we put together a list of 10 different extensions that will undoubtedly boost your Google Ads. Of course, you don’t have to use all of them, but we would recommend a mix of at least 4 for every campaign.
Drive customers directly to your business location.
Encourage people to convert offline by adding relevant offerings, such as “Free delivery” or “Open 24/7”.
Add your phone number or call button to your ads and encourage people to call your business.
