Google Mobile Ads Mobile ads are a format of Adwords ads that appear on mobile websites and Google search pages when a user searches from a mobile device. Google mobile ads are available as either text or image ads. Google mobile advertising works on a pay per click as well as a pay per call basis. Every ad contains a headline and a description with a maximum of 18 characters each. The third line contains the site URL or a telephone number or both. Advertisers can therefore choose to connect to customers via whichever medium – phone or website – that they prefer, or they can let customers choose. Google mobile campaigns can be targeted only to following countries: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Always create a separate campaign for mobile ads. This mobile campaign won’t require a separate landing page, because clicks on the ad will be directed to a Google-supplied mobile-friendly page describing your business. Mobile ads pricing works same as PC based text or image ad. Advertiser only pays when user clicks on the ad and advertiser can even bid to connect users to their business via telephone (click to call). It’s recommended to start off with just a small list of strong keywords and a few different targeted ads. Based on performance, the list can be expanded later on. Opt for contextual targeting so that your ad reaches readers of specific mobile web pages written about specific concepts. Target these mobile campaigns to iPhones, T-Mobile G1s and other high-end mobile devices with full Internet browsers through demographic settings of the campaigns. Mobile ad performance can be measured pulling campaign level and placement performance report.
