Google is nothing if not progressive, and for this reason many of the innovations made to AdWords warrant a closer look.
For many digital marketers, the fall of 2011 might be remembered for bringing dynamic advertising to paid search. Google's newest offering, said to flip "the search engine on its head," does away with the traditional keyword advertising approach in lieu of matching landing pages with the right user search.
Dynamic Search Ads is just one of dozens of innovations Google has made to its AdWords product over the past few years. Google paid search has evolved to include everything from video to coupons and a call feature, all in the name of improving advertiser results. Not every Google product is a good fit for every advertiser - in fact, some of its offerings aren't even available to the masses yet. But Google is nothing if not progressive, and for this reason many of them warrant a closer look.
Google is infamous for experimenting with its AdWords products (not to mention giving them countless different names). The advantage for advertisers is a glut of program options and a fresh take on how to supercharge those two little lines of text. Take some time to learn what's new in Google Ad Innovations. The company's next unit could be the one you've been waiting for.
