The Most Popular Extensions:
Sitelink Extensions – Sitelink extensions are used to increase a consumer’s likelihood of finding what they’re looking for. Advertisers may include a sitelink to their ‘Offers’ page to increase the chance of a purchase.
Call-Out Extensions – Call-out extensions allow advertisers to show consumers what they have on offer. Common call-outs are “free shipping!” or “free delivery!”.
Structured Snippet Extensions – This type of extension shows in the form of a header beneath your text. There are multiple headers available such as; type, brands, areas, and styles etc. A structured snippet allows consumers to know more about what you offer, before clicking your ad.
Call Extensions – A simple yet highly important ad extension that allows consumers to click and call the business. Call extensions are likely to be directly linked to conversion tracking, making them a crucial ad extension to include!
Benefits of Ad Extensions:
By using a combination of these ad extensions, it allows for consumers to know more about your business and what you have to offer. This means they will make more of an educated decision on whether to click your ad in the first place. If they do click your ad it will be because they already know you probably have what they’re looking for and are therefore more likely to perform an action such as calling your business and/or purchasing a product.
Ad extensions make your overall ad look a lot bigger on the Google page, meaning a higher chance of consumers seeing it and clicking it! Extensions also have an impact on your AdRank. This means that the better/more ad extensions you include in each ad, the higher your ad will show on Google!
