AdWords Price Extensions Upgrade Include SA

15 November 2016 | 0 comments | Posted by Che Kohler in nichemarket Advice

Google Adwords Price extensions hit South Africa

About 4 months back in July of this year Google unveiled price extensions for Adwords. What it did was essentially enabling advertisers to show pricing information about products and services in mobile text ads. At that time, the extension format was in list form which took up a lot of above the fold retail space. In the interest of maximising the mobile reach of the extension, Google has reworked the UI and opted for a scrolling carousel.

Price Extensions makeover

Upon initial release, price extensions are only supported English along with a handful of currencies namely USD, CAN, GBP, EURO, AUD, and NZD. Since the makeover and the new standard, Google announced price extensions will be available in 10 more languages. Available languages now include English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Swedish. While also including a few more currencies including our beloved ZAR (South African Rand).
