How to set up Google Dynamic Search Ads for Shopify store?


Google Dynamic Search Ads are keyword-less search ads that Google generates based on the user search query and your Shopify store product list.

Google uses its organic crawlers to scan your product pages on your Shopify store for the search terms. Once matches are found, Google creates an appropriate headline based on the search query and ad text based on your most appropriate landing page.

Google Dynamic Search Ads help you reach out to more potential even to those whom you are not targeting yet. Whenever you add new products to the store, you will have to update your keywords list for Search Ads and create ads for the new keywords. But when you are using Dynamic Search Ads, you need not worry about that.
