Create and report on Google Ads dynamic search ads in Search Ads 360
View the customer searches that matched your dynamic ad targets
The Dynamic ad targets report displays the search terms entered by customers who then clicked on your dynamic search ads. Use this report to gain insight into the search terms that are driving traffic to your site by way of dynamic search ads.
Only dynamic targets that have lead to an ad impression appear in the report.
From the report, you can add negative keywords to prevent irrelevant searches from leading to clicks on your ads. Note that negative keywords prevent matches for both dynamic search ads and text ads.
You can also use the report to enhance your keyword-targeted ad groups. From the report, you can add new keywords to any ad group in the campaign. (Be sure to add text ads in the same ad group. Keywords only display text ads.)
To view the Dynamic ad targets report:
- Navigate to a Google Ads campaign that is set up for dynamic search ads, or a dynamic ad group.
