Google Ads Lead Form Extensions – What They Are & How to Use Them

If you use Google Ads to collect lead information, you are probably familiar with the typical setup. You create an ad, directing to an awesome landing page with a contact form, and you send valuable traffic there in hopes that you collect leads for your business.

But, something new is on the horizon that may just help boost your numbers.

Which Ad Gets Credit? About Facebook and Instagram Attribution

Do you want to know the easiest way to start a debate among marketers? Start talking about attribution.

Google Shopping Now Showing More Free Product Listings

In late April 2020, an interesting change rolled out across Google: The search giant opened their Shopping results page to show more unpaid, organic listings in the US. As opposed to the paid and coveted spots, where Shopping advertisers often compete, the Shopping tab now consists primarily of free product listings. This change does not affect the Google search results page and the change has only occurred on the Google Shopping page, with plans to roll out globally in the coming weeks. Paid Shopping ads will still appear at the top and bottom of the Google Shopping tab and experiments will continue with Showcase Shopping ads and other layout experiments often tested by Google.
