Just over a month ago, Google revealed that it was removing the right hand side ads we’ve grown used to over the past few years. Now that we have a solid four weeks of data, we’re looking to answers some of the many questions which are puzzling advertisers, such as "what’s the effect of the removal of right hand side ads?", “will I have to pay extortionate CPCs?” and “how does this affect my CTR?”.

As all advertisers know, Sitelinks are one of the most important ad extensions available in Adwords. They're known to increase CTR by as much as 30%, and with Google's change to Ad Rank at the tail end of last year, it's made it all the more important that you're making use of all the ad extensions.

“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. As it currently stands, advertisers could be forgiven for thinking Google is upping its game against third party tracking solutions and trying to create a system whereby any solution outside of Google’s is rendered less useful, says Angela Knibb, campaign manager at the agency.
Google Shopping changes afoot: Feed optimisation will sit at the core of advertisers paid search strategies from Feb onwards
By Krishna Rao | 14 January 2013 |
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.

Google has announced its shopping space, Google Shopping, will, for merchants, shift to a paid model of Product Listing Ads (PLAs). This will be rolled out in countries where PLAs are currently live including the UK. Migration will commence 13 February 2013 and completed by Q2 2013. Come July, the results will be only in the format of paid PLAs and the previous natural shopping results will no longer appear.
