Google Discovery Ads
Where Are These Ads Seen: Google Discover Feed, Gmail, and YouTube
What Do These Ads Do: Creates dynamic ads based on where they are being served online. These visually impactful ads blend in with the app being used for a seamless user experience. They utilize machine learning to improve delivery over time. This creates opportunities for Google’s data to serve ads with working knowledge such as search activity, YouTube watch behavior, and so on.
What’s Google Discover:
Google Discover is essentially an enhanced home page on your smart phone’s Google App. Reminiscent of a Facebook or Instagram news feed, users can customize their Discover Feed to news, trends etc. that they are interested in.
Examples of how ads look on YouTube, Google Discovery, and Gmail
While Google Discover is relatively new, Google claims over 800 million people use Discover monthly.
Google Discover has been around since 2016 and has held different names over the years such as “Google Feed.” In September 2019, Google began testing ad functionality in Discover, and has been expanding the opportunity to advertisers over the last few months.
Custom Affinity + Custom Intent = Custom Audiences
Custom Affinity – Ad targeting based on users hobbies and interests
Custom Intent – Ad Targeting based on what the user is actively searching and planning for
– Is the synthesis of these two methods of serving ads. This is like how you can create a custom audience with Facebook ads—but with more data and information for targeting with Google’s direct access to search data.
In other words, Google is getting smarter at serving ads across Google’s breadth of platforms and apps, from Gmail, to Google Search, YouTube and more!
