Product Listing Ads For Mobile

Back in march, Google announced that Product Listing Ads (PLAs) would appear on smartphones for marketplaces which currently show PLAs. Making Product Ads accessible across the ecommerce world, on tablets, desktops and smartphones with Google enhanced campaigns.

Here is an example of a mobile search with PLA results:

Update Enhanced Campaigns for Product Listing Ads

For online merchants, it’s imperative to control this migration as much as possible.

If you don’t update your PLA campaign, Google will do it for you automatically. But Google will also opt you in to mobile traffic, which can hurt the return on investment (ROI) for your PLA campaigns.

If you upgrade manually you can actually set your mobile bid adjustment to -100% i.e. nonexistent.

Here’s how to manually upgrade your mobile bid adjustment:

1. Login to AdWords.

2. Click “Get Started”:

If you don’t see this option within AdWords, you may have something like this in your login:

4. Select your mobile bid adjustment to: Decrease by [your percentage here]%

5. Click “Complete Upgrade” and you’re done.

If you’re currently excluding mobile traffic on your PLA campaigns you should do this before Google makes the transition for you and adds a bunch of unqualified mobile traffic.
