Google Responsive Display Ads


Responsive Display Ads, also known as Multi-Asset Responsive Display Ads, are the latest ad type for Google’s Display Network. Google is driving innovation with the advertiser content creator in mind. They are promoting time saving functionality leveraging their advanced machine learning. This is a direct play from their Responsive Search ads which leverage multiple text assets. One ad with multiple assets yields numerous combinations that can be served. 

What are Responsive Display Ads?

This ad type is the replacement to the static (and now deprecated) Responsive Ad. It leverages the same technology as Responsive Search Ads and combines the optimal combination of assets at the time of serving based on predictions using past performance.

Different types of assets make the ad more adaptable to a wider audience. Google has a greater selection to create the best combination based on text, images, and videos for the placement. Google is doing the heavy lifting and save the advertiser time and work of creating and managing multiple display ads.



How Responsive Display Ads are Built

Google RDAs are designed to be modular, meaning multiple assets are combined to create the final ad. Below we'll outline each of the available components available for RDAs.
