“Enhanced Campaigns”-Google announces significant changes to its AdWords digital advertising platform
By Krishna Rao | 07 February 2013 |
Google has announced significant changes to its AdWords digital advertising platform adding functionality it calls “Enhanced Campaigns”. Put simply, it centralises controls for mobile and desktop advertising campaigns in one place and offers advertisers more data to show the real value of their campaigns. Previously businesses have had to submit individual advertising campaigns for different devices, locations and times - a labour-intensive process which most times results in their running hundreds of similar campaigns simultaneously.

Google‘s “Enhanced Campaigns”, will prove a challenge to advertisers, the biggest being that of how third party tracking solutions can integrate into it.

Google has announced its shopping space, Google Shopping, will, for merchants, shift to a paid model of Product Listing Ads (PLAs). Come July, Google will display one view of the Product Universe whilst effectively ‘forcing’ merchants to provide improved quality of inventory and accuracy of data. Advertisers will need to optimise and manage their product feeds, which for many will require further expertise and ultimately more time and resource. Furthermore, the feed will need to be optimised in real-time and in line with Google’s product feed specification.
