Millions of businesses use Google AdWords to promote their products and services on the world's most used search engine. As Google usage grows, you don’t have to simply increase your ad spend to keep up with the competition.
Google is constantly adding new features and interfaces based on user feedback, search trends and automation. These features often help companies of any size stay competitive.
In September 2017, Google AdWords will be adding new features geared toward improving campaign performance. Google will add new variations of your existing ads so you can test the performance of Google’s suggested improvements. You can edit or remove these ads at any point, and you can opt out of the service.
Google's machine learning will help advertisers display high performance ads automatically. The Smart Bidding feature helps advertisers who choose to optimize for conversions.
Maximizing Your Daily Budget
More changes are coming at the beginning of October. Have you ever noticed that your ads never seem to hit their daily budgets? Google has added new features to ensure that advertisers meet their click and conversion goals. Campaigns will be allowed to spend up to double their allotted daily budgets.
While on the surface, this sounds like your online spending could get out of hand quickly, it is set up to balance out. Google plans to take budgets from days where you don't meet your daily budget, like weekends in the B2B sector, and reallocate those funds to your busier days. Google has stated that spending will not exceed your monthly charging limit. Starting October 4, you'll want to make sure to adjust your monthly budgets accordingly.
New Google AdWords Interface
Finally, Google has been in the process of rolling out the beta of its new AdWords interface over the past few months. The new (and faster) Google AdWords will offer more insights into what is driving your best advertising results, as well as a more intuitive user experience.
Look for the new AdWords interface to be available to all AdWords customers in October 2017.
