Feature Review – Dynamic Copy & URL’s

A nice advanced feature has been around for a while for advertisers – use your keywords to dynamically populate your ad copy & destination URL.Why would you want to use this?  If your AdGroup is bidding on 50 keywords, you can make the ad more relevant to each specific keyword when we serve the ad based on that keyword, so instead of a generic ad heading such as: Find Property – you could now have Find Property in Cape Town as the heading when the keyword ‘Cape Town’ was used to serve the ad – so you could personalize the heading for every city your business advertises property in – whilst only having to write a single ad. Cool!


Here’s the technical detail on how to use it:
