This would include news websites, sports websites, and many other categories to give advertisers the widest options of reaching the intended target audience with a web advertising campaign.

Display Advertising Campaign Features

Google Adwords Display Network for banner ads has features to deliver various display ad sizes and creativity to connect with web surfers when and where it counts.

  • Dynamic Display Ads
    Dynamic Display Ads allows us to create ads that are tailored to your target audience based on the strategy and objectives of the advertising campaign. This includes contextualized and personalized ads based on the publishing website’s content and visitor interest. This advertising process happens dynamically as the ads are shown to a specific visitor on a specific website. We can keep the ad content relevant and fresh by combining multiple Google Adwords services.
  • Interest categories
    We are able to reach users based on their interests across the Google Display Network. Interest categories help us reach target audiences across the Google Display Network, presenting highly relevant messages to website visitors while they surf the Web. We can choose from a rich set of interest categories (such as entertainment, sports, or automotive) and we will show ads to website visitors that are interested in those categories. This feature will help increase awareness of your brand and products, as well as, extend the reach of existing campaigns.
  • Display Campaign Optimizer
    Using the display campaign optimizer to save time and increase conversions on the Google Display Network giving us the ability for automatic bidding and targeting. The Display Campaign Optimizer increases conversions by automatically managing, targeting and bidding for campaigns on the Google Display Network. This allows us to target cost-per-acquisition (CPA) and automatically finds the best placements for the display ads at the right prices to help you boost conversions, based on the CPA goals.
  • Above the Fold Advertising
    There are so many different web browsers, monitor sizes, and screen resolutions, it becomes difficult to predict where a display ad will shows on a publishers web page and because the same placement may appear in different places on each website visitor’s monitor. We can filter out display ads below the fold impressions giving us much more control over where your ads appear and optimizing the campaign budget.
