Custom rules updates 

This version of Google Ads Editor includes 5 new custom rules. The new rules can alert you if: 

  • There are no responsive search ads in a Search Network campaign’s ad group (when that ad group already contains at least one enabled expanded text ad)
  • A video campaign (that isn’t a TrueView for action campaign) isn’t targeting Google video partners
  • A video discovery ad group is targeting a keyword or topic
  • A TrueView campaign is only targeting YouTube search but only has TrueView in-stream video ads
  • A video campaign has a start and end date, but is using an average daily budget

Learn how to Use custom rules.
