We have updated this post from August 2018:
The most recent update in the ever-changing world of Google’s pay-per-click advertising is a branding revamp that sees the name Google AdWords make the switch to Google Ads. The big question is, what does this mean for your current AdWords campaign?
Why the change to Google Ads?
These updates to Google AdWords as well as Marketing are new efforts by Google to make it easier for businesses to build on cross-platform advertising and analytics.
Here’s the good news
This new branding change will not have any affect on your current AdWords campaigns. If you’re an existing client with RGB you will only notice a change in the terminology we use when discussing your account.
There is one change, however
The Google Ads re-branding efforts did see a change in URLS:
- New URL to Access Your Google Ads Account(s): https://ads.google.com
- New URL to Access Google Help Center: https://support.google.com/google-ads
Don’t worry, you’re bookmarked or saved URL should redirect to these new pages.
Along with a switch from Google AdWords to Google Ads, two additional brand changes are happening:
- The Google Analytics 360 Suite and DoubleClick advertiser products will both be found under the Google Marketing Platform.
- DoubleClick for Publishers and DoubleClick Ad Exchange will now be under the Google Ad Manager brand.
