Types of Responsive Ads

There are generally two types of Responsive Ads:-

Responsive Search Ads

Responsive Ads

By allowing the user to create up to 15 multiple headlines and descriptions for a single ad, Responsive ads use the artificial machine learning algorithm to combine different variations of headlines and descriptions provided by the user. Then, the algorithm determines the top-performing Ads by using the performance history of each combination of Ads. After that, it runs the selected top-performing Ads throughout the campaign to give you the maximum amount of conversions by targeting the customers effectively.

Responsive Display Ads

Responsive Ads

Responsive Display Ads allow the user to upload multiple assets per asset type (for example, multiple headlines, logos, videos, and images) for different devices like Mobiles, Tablets, Computers, etc… in different image resolutions. Afterward, Responsive display ads will automatically adjust their size, appearance, and borders for different devices to fit perfectly within the proper boundaries on the webpage by selecting the appropriate format asset provided by the user automatically using Google’s artificial machine learning algorithm.

(Example- the same ad will be seen smaller on one device and larger on the other device depending on the screen size of the device used.)

One of the special features of Responsive Display Ads is that it shows video ads instead of images whenever Google Ads determines that your videos could drive better performance. Thereby, helping you to reach the maximum amount of people in your Ad campaign.
