Frequently asked questions
How do text ads work on mobile devices?
What are the character limits for text ad fields?
Why does my text ad sometimes appear differently when it shows up on Google?
To help your ad attract more customers and receive more clicks, the information you provide about your business and your website’s content is used to create and test alternate ads. In some cases, this information may be used to test different headlines, descriptions, or landing pages. It may also be used to add sitelinks or replace your headlines with your business name, phone number, or address.
Both the original ad and the new ads will run to determine which are more effective. Ads that perform better consistently will run more often over time. If you’d like more control over editing and optimizing your creative assets, switch to Expert Mode. Learn more About Smart Mode and Expert Mode
Will all of the ad text in my text ad always show when my ad shows?
- If you've provided a business phone number, in some instances the “Call” button may take the place of some of your ad text.
- If your ad text frequently uses wider characters (like “m”) instead of narrower characters (like “i”), your headline text may be wider than the space available for it on some browser sizes. With most Latin languages, you can avoid this by limiting your combined headline character count to 33 characters total.
- While serving on the Google Display Network, some ad formats are limited to 2 headlines.
How do I fix an error when I create or edit text ads?
- Use the correct character limit for each field.
- Check for proper use of punctuations and symbols.
- Make sure your ad text doesn't have incorrect grammar or spelling.
