This Just In: Microsoft Advertising Launches Promotion Extensions

If you’ve been a PPC Manager for a while now, you likely are a fan of the Promotion Extensions offered in Google Ads. Back when they first launched in Google Ads, they were only available during certain shopping holidays, with pre-set Occasions as part of the extension setup, you could only run them for holidays like “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday”. Eventually though, Google Ads released “None” as an Occasion option, allowing Promotion Extensions to run throughout the year, so long as there was a valid monetary or percentage discount.

Google Ads To Limit Search Terms Report: A New Blindspot Emerges

Earlier this month, Google informed advertisers that there will be a big change to the Search Terms Report (previously called the Search Query Report) in Google Ads. While there are lots of angered advertisers and PPC marketers, there is little information from Google on exactly what the impact will be, but the change is as follows, taken directly from the new alert in Google Ads:

“We are updating the search terms report to only include terms that were searched by a significant number of users. As a result, you may see fewer terms in your report going forward.”
