Create your first display remarketing campaign
Remarketing campaigns are used to show ads to people who have visited your website or used your app. These campaigns provide you with extra settings and reports specifically for reaching previous visitors and users. The first time you set up a remarketing campaign, you'll also complete the process to create your remarketing tag and lists.
This article explains how to set up your first display remarketing campaign.
Before you begin
Keep in mind that your remarketing tag shouldn't be associated with any personally identifiable or sensitive information. Sensitive categories of websites and apps can't use remarketing. If you're setting up a remarketing campaign and placing the remarketing tag on your website or mobile app, you need to follow the Policy for Personalized advertising.
