Google Launches Property Promotion Ads For Hotels New Ad Format Will Help Target Users Uncertain of Which Hotel they Want to Book

author image Written by: Nicole McCormick           Categories - In The News

Google has officially rolled out property promotion ads for hotels, which will appear when users search for different travel destinations. This new ad format was created to help hotels target users searching for information about a particular location, but don’t yet know what hotel they’d like to book. 

These property promotion ads are now displayed in the Google search results for geographical locations. This means that when users search for a particular location, like New York City or Rome, Italy, they will also receive hotel recommendations within Google.

“They show prominently in search results for geographical locations, allowing advertisers to position specific hotels in a particular place. Previous to this launch, direct participation in property promotion ads was done through a whitelist,” said Peter Fernandez, Product Manager, Hotel Ads in the official announcement.

Fernandez also emphasized that the new property promotion ads are not the same as hotel booking link ads.

“While standard hotel booking link ads are meant for advertisers to capture a booking for a hotel a user already chose, property promotion ads are designed to enable advertisers to influence the buying decision for users still looking for a hotel,” he said.

Prior to the rollout, property promotions was a “whitelist only” ad solution. Now, any hotel campaign advertiser can participate using the Google Ads interface.

The property promotion ads will be made available via an ad group type within the Hotel Campaign in Google Ads, and advertisers can set specific bids for property promotion ads within the Google Ads interface, API, and bulk upload system.

Google Ads Announces Top 3 Priorities for 2022

02/17/2022

Google Ads is working on a better experience for its users and it shows. They announced their top three priorities for this year, and it’s all about focusing on automation, measurement and privacy.

Shifts in consumer behaviour are a hot topic during the pandemic, and Google knows this. Vice President and General Manager of Google Ads, Jerry Dischler, talked about how these shifts come with both challenges and opportunities, according to Search Engine Journal.

The Privacy

Think about yourself as a user now – you want your privacy, you cherish it and you only want to share it with people and brands you trust. So it does become frustrating to hear about different privacy violations and you do become a bit sceptical about it all. Google knows this and knows how important it is to maintain it. You have to work on your relationship with your users and customers in order to get those first-party data. How? That’s up to you/ But focus on this:

  • Build direct relationships
  • Ensure measurement remains accurate and actionable
  • Keep your ads relevant

 Automation

Performance Max and Discovery campaign types – these are the two focuses in the Automation pillar. They both centre around reaching users at scale from a single campaign. According to Google, these types of campaigns offer the following advantages:

  • More simplicity in management
  • Multi-channel reach
  • Greater ad inventory
  • Incremental conversions

Google recommends using Smart Bidding, responsive search ads, and broad match keywords for campaigns that target single channels such as Search, Display, and YouTube.

Measurement

Measurement will be tough in the upcoming times, especially because of the announced removal of third-party cookies. Without measurement, it’s hard to tailor the strategy to success and without it, it becomes more difficult to prove the value of your marketing. That’s why Google is rolling out new solutions, which will rely on your data and privacy-safe APIs:

  • Enhanced Conversions
  • Conversion Modelling
  • Consent Mode
  • Data-driven attribution
