Dynamic ads on Google: how to set them up and what could go wrong

Dynamic in Google Ads seems like a good solution. No need to collect keys and write headlines – there is a saving. But if everything was so simple, then who would run the usual search ads?

Dynamic ads are not always applicable, and there are enough nuances with their setting. We’ll understand how to properly configure these ads, in which cases they are applicable, and how to avoid display problems.

If dynamic ads don’t suit you

In an article about automating composing ads for context, we mentioned dynamic ads as one way to make things easier. In an article about problems with ad impressions, they explained why the “dynamics” may not be shown. It’s time to put everything together and make full-fledged material on dynamic ads in Google Ads.

What are dynamic ads and how do they differ from regular search ads

Dynamic ads are placed on a Google search. They differ from standard search engines in three ways:

  • headers and display URLs of dynamic ads are automatically generated based on the content of the landing page – for standard ads, they must be manually entered;
  • for dynamic ads, you do not need to select keywords – the system, based on the content of the landing pages, determines itself by what requests to show them;
  • dynamic ad group display can be configured immediately on all pages of the site or selected pages – for regular ads, one URL per group is indicated.

Important! Do not confuse dynamic ads with keyword insertion.

  • Dynamic insertion is used in standard ads – so that the headings always include a relevant search query.
  • Dynamic ads are a separate type of ads for which they create their own “dynamic” campaign.

For comparison, here is the dynamic insert:

Dynamic ads on Google: how to set them up and what could go wrong

If you look at the results of the issuance, it is not easy to identify dynamic announcements with the naked eye. Their only difference from the standard ones is one integral header, which is pulled from the tag landing page. While standard ads have two or three separate headings (up to 30 characters each with spaces) between which there is a dash:</p> <p></p> <div style="text-align:center;"><img src="https://i0.wp.com/habrastorage.org/webt/ro/ez/0t/roez0tvk1egeodoz-zgruid51yq.png?w=1290&ssl=1" alt="Dynamic ads on Google: how to set them up and what could go wrong" data-recalc-dims="1" data-lazy-src="https://i0.wp.com/habrastorage.org/webt/ro/ez/0t/roez0tvk1egeodoz-zgruid51yq.png?w=1290&is-pending-load=1#038;ssl=1" srcset="data:image/gif;base64,R0lGODlhAQABAIAAAAAAAP///yH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7" class=" jetpack-lazy-image"><noscript><img src="https://i0.wp.com/habrastorage.org/webt/ro/ez/0t/roez0tvk1egeodoz-zgruid51yq.png?w=1290&ssl=1" alt="Dynamic ads on Google: how to set them up and what could go wrong" data-recalc-dims="1"></noscript></div> <p></p> <p>Despite the differences, dynamic and standard ads have a number of similarities in common:</p> <p></p> <ul> <li>in dynamic ads, you also need to manually add two descriptions;</li> <li>dynamic ad groups can add negative keywords;</li> <li>for dynamic campaigns, the same targeting is available as for standard ones (audiences, schedule, etc., except for keywords), as well as extensions (refinements, quick links, etc.).</li> </ul> <p><a name="id2"></a></p> <h3>In which cases dynamic ads are applicable, and in which – not</h3> <p></p> <p>For which sites <strong>fit </strong>dynamic ads:</p> <p></p> <ul> <li><strong>Online stores with a wide range of products</strong>. In this case, you don’t have to select keywords for each product, compose headings and unique descriptions (just write a few descriptions with key messages and you can use them for almost all ad groups).</li> <li><strong>Content projects</strong>. The plus is that the title is pulled from the title, and the advertising snippet will not differ much from the organic snippet.</li> <li><strong>Other sites with many similar pages</strong>. These can be online catalogs, message boards, aggregators, etc.</li> </ul> <p></p> <p>But still, there are limitations to working with “dynamics”.</p> <p></p> <p>Dynamic ads <strong>unsuitable</strong>:</p> <p></p> <ul> <li>For sites whose content is frequently updated. Ad systems do not have time to reindex content, and ads become irrelevant.</li> <li>For sites with little text or poorly optimized pages. This can be landing pages, portfolios, sites with images or other sites that are not filled with text content. In this case, the advertising system has nowhere to get the keys from.</li> <li>For sites with few pages. In this case, it’s difficult to assess the benefits of dynamic ads – it’s better to compose standard ads and maximize them for the content of the pages.

There are 4 options for goals:</p> <p></p> <p>1. <strong>Categories</strong>. The system analyzes the content of the pages and combines them into thematic categories. For example, “smartphones”, “redmi smartphones”, etc. Choose the category you want to advertise – create an ad group for it.</p> <p></p> <div style="text-align:center;"><img src="https://i0.wp.com/habrastorage.org/webt/bk/hn/qk/bkhnqkgyxsombaomms6y3hj20ki.png?w=1290&ssl=1" alt="Dynamic ads on Google: how to set them up and what could go wrong" data-recalc-dims="1" data-lazy-src="https://i0.wp.com/habrastorage.org/webt/bk/hn/qk/bkhnqkgyxsombaomms6y3hj20ki.png?w=1290&is-pending-load=1#038;ssl=1" srcset="data:image/gif;base64,R0lGODlhAQABAIAAAAAAAP///yH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7" class=" jetpack-lazy-image"><noscript><img src="https://i0.wp.com/habrastorage.org/webt/bk/hn/qk/bkhnqkgyxsombaomms6y3hj20ki.png?w=1290&ssl=1" alt="Dynamic ads on Google: how to set them up and what could go wrong" data-recalc-dims="1"></noscript></div> <p></p> <p>If you already have a standard search advertising campaign running, landing pages from standard ad groups will be available in the categories section.

But you need to understand that if some pages fall out of the index or do not have time to index, ads will not be displayed on them.</p> <p></p> <p>To avoid problems when targeting indexed pages, make sure that:</p> <p></p> <ul> <li>there is no ban on page indexing in robots.txt, in particular for GoogleBot and AdsBot robots;</li> <li>The pages you need are indexed by Google.</li> </ul> <p></p> <p>If there are problems with indexing or for some reason indexing a site is not possible, use targeting with the feed.</p> <p></p> <blockquote> <p>For possible problems with site indexing and their solution, read <a href="https://blog.promopult.ru/seo/kak-uskorit-indeksaciyu-sajta-5-sovetov.html">here</a>.</p> </blockquote> <p><a name="id12"></a></p> <h3>Destination URLs Unavailable</h3> <p></p> <p>Make sure that when loading all the landing pages the server will give the code 200. If the server gives, for example, the code 404 (page not found), ads for this page will not be shown.</p> <p></p> <p>You can check server response codes, for example, in <a href="https://webmaster.yandex.ru/tools/server-response/">Yandex.Webmaster</a>.</p> <p><a name="id13"></a></p> <h3>No new URLs added to feed when using it as a single data source</h3> <p></p> <p>You selected a feed as a source of goals, added it to the system, set up a campaign, and created ads. After a while, we decided to expand our targeting, for example, to pages that contain the word “smartfon” in the URL. We created an ad group, set up a delivery rule, but no impressions.</p> <p></p> <div style="text-align:center;"><img src="https://i0.wp.com/habrastorage.org/webt/wd/be/zb/wdbezbdcaovr3eulqkauv2se5am.png?w=1290&ssl=1" alt="Dynamic ads on Google: how to set them up and what could go wrong" data-recalc-dims="1" data-lazy-src="https://i0.wp.com/habrastorage.org/webt/wd/be/zb/wdbezbdcaovr3eulqkauv2se5am.png?w=1290&is-pending-load=1#038;ssl=1" srcset="data:image/gif;base64,R0lGODlhAQABAIAAAAAAAP///yH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7" class=" jetpack-lazy-image"><noscript><img src="https://i0.wp.com/habrastorage.org/webt/wd/be/zb/wdbezbdcaovr3eulqkauv2se5am.png?w=1290&ssl=1" alt="Dynamic ads on Google: how to set them up and what could go wrong" data-recalc-dims="1"></noscript></div> <p></p> <p>The problem is that there are no pages with the given word in the feed where the URLs are pulled from.

Obviously, if there is not enough text on the page, the system has nowhere to get the keys from.</p> <p></p> <p>But even if there is a lot of text, the system does not always collect a sufficient number of keys.</p> <p></p> <p>For example, we often encounter this situation when we run dynamic advertising for articles in <a href="https://blog.promopult.ru/">PromoPult Blog</a>. For some articles, the system determines the relevant queries well, and for others, more specific, it comes to a standstill. In the latter case, the status “Few matching queries” is displayed opposite the goal.</p> <p></p> <div style="text-align:center;"><img src="https://i0.wp.com/habrastorage.org/webt/_d/1l/jx/_d1ljxrqdgnimezlzs9tfkdicbo.png?w=1290&ssl=1" alt="Dynamic ads on Google: how to set them up and what could go wrong" data-recalc-dims="1" data-lazy-src="https://i0.wp.com/habrastorage.org/webt/_d/1l/jx/_d1ljxrqdgnimezlzs9tfkdicbo.png?w=1290&is-pending-load=1#038;ssl=1" srcset="data:image/gif;base64,R0lGODlhAQABAIAAAAAAAP///yH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7" class=" jetpack-lazy-image"><noscript><img src="https://i0.wp.com/habrastorage.org/webt/_d/1l/jx/_d1ljxrqdgnimezlzs9tfkdicbo.png?w=1290&ssl=1" alt="Dynamic ads on Google: how to set them up and what could go wrong" data-recalc-dims="1"></noscript></div> <p></p> <p>There are several solutions:</p> <p></p> <ul> <li>fill the page with content – connect <a href="https://promopult.ru/txt?utm_medium=paid_article&utm_source=habr&utm_campaign=blog&utm_term=ba4dd6020d46e47b&utm_content=dynamicheskye_obyavleniya_na_poiske_Google_txt">regular site content</a> it is possible in the PromoPult system;</li> <li>optimize existing content – this will be useful not only for the context, but also for SEO;</li> <li>For pages with no impressions, start a standard search campaign.</li> </ul> <p><a name="id15"></a></p> <h2>If dynamic ads don’t suit you</h2> <p></p> <p>In this case, consider automating standard campaigns.
