Google auto-applied recommendations

Google has announced the official launch of auto-applied Google Ads recommendations.

Advertisers have the option to apply recommendations automatically.

Should you do it?

According to Google, auto-applied recommendations will improve Cambodia Phone Number List account performance and help you save time. But do take note that some of the recommendations may not actually improve your account performance – we love bots but there are definitely limitations.

In the event that you do decide to turn on auto-applied recommendations, take note of the following:

  • Auto-applying recommendations will not increase your budget so you’ll need to continually review the recommendations page to ensure there is no budget limitation
  • Your bids and strategies can change

That’s all the updates we have for now! As the top digital marketing company in Singapore, we aim to bring you the latest updates. Keep your eyes peeled for next month’s round up!
