Campaigns

Text ads

All online ads are essentially clickable messages that connect customers with a website.

Text ads, the simplest version of a clickable message, contain three components: a destination URL, a headline, and a description. Let's look at the components of the sample ad below:

Using special characters with your ads

You can write your ads in a number of supported languages. Most non-English characters, including tildes, umlauts, and cedillas, will appear correctly in your ads, including the display URL.

For languages that use double-width characters, like Chinese (simplified or traditional), Japanese, or Korean, your text ads will appear on Google search results the same way that they appear in your account. Keep in mind that your headline, description lines, and display URL should meet our character limits. We recommend you preview your ads to make sure you're satisfied with how they appear.

Learn more about Google AdWords policies for character limits, display URLs, destination URLs, and editorial standards.
