Optimising Mobile Moments: An End-To-End Focus

Optimising Mobile Moments: An End-To-End Focus

Google reiterates suggested 33-character limit in ETA headlines to avoid truncation

Google reiterates suggested 33-character limit in ETA headlines to avoid truncation

Expanded Text Ads (ETAs) are finally here, allowing marketers from countries with long-worded languages to breathe a sigh of relief (as a German, I’m delighted to finally be able to write full sentences).
