Search Ads 3.0

Google text advertising  is the oldest ad type within Google, and also within Adchieve. In 2004 it was already possible to automatically create and manage advertisements via Adchieve based on a product feed.

Since 2004 a lot has changed in the field of text ads. Not only were new advertising formats and extensions added, the structure and strategy of many advertisers also changed. This was mainly due to the development of automatic bidding strategies within Google Ads, which reduced the need to further segment the campaigns.

This has also resulted in an increasing demand from our users, for a possibility to send different keyword combinations, in different ad groups, to the same campaign. By modifying the feed in different ways, our users were already able to apply this strategy.

However, because we want to make the advertiser’s work as efficient and simple as possible, we started developing Search Ads 3.0 several months ago. Based on the valuable feedback from various advertisers and our own insights, we were able to successfully implement Search Ads 3.0 in our software.

What’s new

In addition to the new functionalities, we have made the macro even more user-friendly in several ways. This makes it easier to search columns and set conditions.

In addition, you can now manage your campaigns more easily because you have the ability to work with fewer macros and campaigns. The data is also a lot less fragmented. Because of this Google’s algorithms will perform even better.

Multi Campaign

A very useful new feature within Search Ads 3.0, is the multi campaign feature. It allows you to create multiple campaigns from 1 macro. This is done by specifying a column on which you want to split the campaigns, for example, the column ‘brand’. Then you specify a campaign name template so all campaigns get the correct name.

If you have a location based campaign structure, you can easily split it up by entering the coordinates:


For example, you can automatically create your own campaign for each shop using a location feed or GMB link. This is useful when, for example, every shop has it’s own campaign budget. When you, as a SEA specialist, want to adjust the texts, you’ll only need to do that in one place.

Multi adgroup

Search Ads 3.0 allows you to specify multiple keyword combinations within 1 macro. This eliminates the need to create multiple macros, or customize your feed when you want multiple types of keyword combinations in 1 campaign.

This saves time in setting up and managing the campaigns. It also provides more overview in your Google Ads account, and your data is less fragmented. The latter makes a particularly positive contribution to Google’s automatic bidding strategies.

Separate bids per keywords

Search Ads 3.0 also provides you the possibility to specify separate bids per keyword type. For example, you can enter a separate bid per match type. This ensures that your keywords will always get the right starting bids, which will benefit your returns and turnover.

Adding synonyms in bulk

Synonyms can now be added in bulk. You can easily specify a template with synonyms, by cutting and pasting it from a spreadsheet.

Column search

Finding the right column has become a lot easier in the new module. Instead of a row of columns on the left side of the screen, you can now easily search for the correct column. This function has been processed within each part of the new module: campaigns, ad groups, keywords and ads.

The “when to apply?” function that you know from Adchieve’s feed management, is now also added when composing the ads. This gives you more flexibility when specifying conditions, and you don’t have to add extra columns or make adjustments to the feed:
