Navigating Location Asset Requirements in Google Ads: A Guide for Better Results
As a small business, your presence in the digital landscape is pivotal. Google Ads can amplify this presence through location assets, a powerful feature that incorporates your business address, phone number, and essential operational details into your advertisements. However, with great power comes great responsibility, and Google has clear-cut guidelines to maintain the integrity of this information. Here’s what you need to know about Google Ads’ Location asset requirements and how Stand And Stretch can be your navigator and ally in this journey.
Understanding Google Ads Location Asset Requirements
Location assets are integral to connecting your physical business with potential online customers. They ensure that when a potential customer encounters your ad, they have immediate access to vital information such as your business hours, contact number, and even ratings.
But before leveraging this tool, be mindful of the following stipulations:
- Google Business Profile (GBP) Synchronization: Location assets are fed data from your GBP account, not directly through Google Ads. Ensure your GBP is updated; it’s the lifeline for your location assets.
- Owner Approval: You cannot advertise a location without the green light from the business owner. This ensures that only authorized representations of the business are in the public eye.
Aligning with Google Ads Policies
Compliance with Google Ads policies is non-negotiable. Here are some policy highlights that are often at the forefront:
- Misleading Content: Accuracy is non-negotiable. The Misleading content policy demands that all advertised information faithfully represents your offerings.
- Unclear Relevance: Relevance is key. The Unclear Relevance policy requires that your ad components, including site links, accurately reflect the content customers will find once they click through.
- Trademark Use: Use trademarks appropriately. The Trademarks policy may lead to the removal of ads if trademarked material is misused.
