To provide a comprehensive and consolidated view of your Audiences and make audience management and optimization simpler, you’ll find 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”.

You can integrate your customer relationship management (CRM) system data sources with Google Customer Match using Zapier as your integration partner. Customer Match lets you use your online and offline data to reach and re-engage with your customers across Search, Shopping, Gmail, YouTube, and Display. Using information that your customers have shared with you, Customer Match will target ads to those customers and other customers like them.
Zapier automatically uploads new contact details from your customer relationship management (CRM) system, eCommerce, or marketing automation tool where you collect a user's information to your Google Ads customer lists. This means you don’t have to manually upload contacts to Google Ads, sort them into the right lists, or remove them from a list. You can automatically keep your uploaded customer lists refreshed and in sync with your CRM.
In this article, we’ll go over the benefits of this feature and how the process works.
Customer Match is a useful advertising tool for many business goals, from increasing brand awareness to driving conversions. When you integrate your Customer Match data with Zapier, you can automate your Customer Match tasks which can help boost your return on investment (ROI).
