To provide a comprehensive and consolidated view of your Audiences and make audience management and optimisation simpler, you’ll see the following improvements in Google Ads:
- New audience reporting
Detailed reporting about audience demographics, segments and exclusions is now consolidated in one place, the 'Audiences' tab within the left page navigation menu. You can also easily manage your audiences from this report page. Learn more about audience reporting
- New terms
We’re using new terms on your Audience report and throughout Google Ads. For example, 'audience types' (these include similar, custom, in-market and affinity) are now referred to as audience segments and 'remarketing' is now referred to as 'your data'. Learn more about the updates to audience terms and phrases
In-app conversion events are used to track actions, such as completing a lead generation form or completing an in-app purchase.
If you’re tracking events beyond downloads in your analytics tools, it's helpful to share those events with Google Ads as 'conversions'. Seeing conversions allows Google Ads to gather more data, better optimise your campaign and show you when users complete those conversions after clicking an ad.
Google Ads app conversion tracking supports tracking the values of the conversions. Ensure that the way your app implements conversion tracking is set up to pass the values of conversions to Google Ads. Seeing these values will enable Google Ads to use automated bidding methods (like Smart Bidding) and maximise campaign performance based on conversion value.
Conversion tracking with a third-party SDK
Google Ads works with the following third-party app analytics providers to support in-app conversion tracking integration with Google Ads: Adjust, Adways, Appsflyer, CyberZ, Kochava, Singular and TUNE.
If you use one of these third-party app analytics providers to track and measure your app conversions, work with your third-party app analytics representative to set up their SDK.
Conversion tracking with server-to-server
