SEM: Google AdWords Extensions

Google AdWords Extensions, A Personal Experience and How Extensions Can Help Your Business

Let’s review Google’s Site Extensions for AdWords, both from a personal perspective as well as quality score perspective.

Last week my car started spilling gasoline in a Jewel parking lot on one of the coldest nights of the winter.  My dealership was open until 9pm, it was 7:30pm, but I needed a tow.  I couldn’t remember the name of the towing company I had previously used, so a quick Google search and I found the company.  It was a Google AdWords ad and they were using Call Extensions.  It made my night, because it made a stressful situation, just a little bit easier.

Now, let’s review some of the features of Ad Extensions and how you can use them to benefit your business.
