Headline25 characters
Description Line 135 characters
Description Line 235 characters
Display URL35 characters
Destination URL1024 characters

Headline

This is the most important part of your text ad. It should feature a top keyword in you ad group to show clear relevance to the users search query.  Consider using the dynamic keyword insertion feature for an even stronger relevance.


Description Lines 1 and 2

This is your opportunity to better describe your offering and compel the searcher to the action you want them to take next.  Use these lines to describe the value proposition of what you are offering.  Be sure to include keywords and a strong call to action – tell everyone why they should click on your ad, create a sense of urgency.


Display URL

The Display URL should include a top keyword if at all possible (i.e. www.company.com/top-keyword) to further engage with user and to indicate that your site is highly relevant to their search.  This will improve your click through rate (CTR).


Destination URL

The Destination URL is the actual landing page that users will reach if they click on your ad.  Any offer that you make in your ad should be easily visible on the landing page so that the page becomes more relevant to the ad and in turn helps to maximise your Quality Score.
