About automatically created assets

Automatically created assets are an opt-in, campaign-level setting. Enabling the setting will help you generate additional assets (headlines and descriptions) to be used in combination with the assets you input for your responsive search ads. These new assets are generated based on your ad's unique context, which includes your landing page, existing ads, and keywords in your ad group. In some cases*, automatically created assets can use generative AI to help you generate assets that are more relevant to people’s search queries.

*Advertisers with English assets are eligible.

Note: You must opt-in to use this feature. Asset generation techniques using domain are coming soon.

Ensure your website content is accurate, not misleading, and not in violation of Google Ads policies or applicable laws. After enabling automatically created assets, you can monitor your ad content for accuracy in the asset details report.

How automatically created assets work

For responsive search ads within campaigns where you enable automatically created assets, you instruct Google to help you generate assets from eligible sources based on relevance and predicted performance. When your ad is eligible to serve for a query, responsive search ads will use the pool of eligible advertiser-created assets and automatically created assets and serve the combination predicted to perform best. Automatically created assets will be reflected in your RSA Ad Strength rating.

Language support includes English, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, French, German, Japanese, and Dutch.
