Google announced they are now rolling out to all advertisers the similar audiences features to search and shopping ads.
“Similar audiences helps you find people who share similar interests with your best customers, right when theyâre searching for products and services like yours,” Google said. “This makes it easy for you to expand your reach by connecting you with more people who want what you have to offer,” they added.
Google gave this example:
Imagine youâre marketing a hotel in Hawaii using RLSA, and you want to connect with summer travelers. The people in your âRecent Convertersâ list might be searching for things like âflights to Maui,â âscuba classes,â and âflip-flop sandals.â Powered by Googleâs machine learning, similar audiences uses these search trends to help you find people who are looking for the same things as your existing customers, even if theyâre not on your remarketing lists.
By connecting you with more qualified customers, similar audiences can help unlock new opportunities to grow your business. For example, you may discover generic terms work better with a similar audience applied to them. You can also use it as a bid modifier to be more competitive in a crowded auction, tailoring your bids to reach people who are more likely to buy.
