In the picture given above, you can check which Adcopy is performing well. If any of your Adcopy is not performing well you can change the Ad copy.
In the above picture, there is Device and Network Wise performance. This is the best feature of Google Ads. It shows, from which device you are getting more Clicks or Conversions or Impressions. By looking at this you can adjust your bid. For example, if your ads are costing more on desktop devices, you can bid less in comparison to Mobile Devices.
Google Ads Helpful Recommendations
Have you ever seen results of your Campaign in one page? No Then, there is a Recommendations Tab in Google Ads which gives you various suggestions that can be Optimized on your existing Campaign & implemented as soon as possible for better performance. Below are some images of Recommendations.
It gives you some suggestions to increase your ads performance. For example, if your ad is not at the top page of google it suggests you increase your bid.
You can see in the above image that the keyword “Sweden universities for mechanical engineering” is not getting triggered and not giving conversions. Try to add new keywords by referring to search terms. You can even show you ads without increasing your bid. There is an Adgroup which has no Keywords or Ads.
Here is the overall Optimization Score for Search Campaigns. The recommendation is divided into different segments, Repairs, Bids & Adjustments, Keywords & Targeting, etc.

The only way to use the new promotion extension is through the new UI. Promotion Extensions allows you to show and link to a particular offer in text ads. Here’s how it looks like in the new Interface:
For example, you are running a shopping campaign, so you can mention discounts on the Ad copy. This Ad Extension is best for those companies who have products in bulk.
Text Ads in Google Ads
Google added a new Text Ad to the interface that is “Responsive Text Ads” . This helps to expand the Text Ads. Earlier there were two Headlines, one Description & there was a limit of characters in Ads. If you select this option, you can add many Headlines and 4 Descriptions. Isn’t it cool? Have a look at it.
You can add as many as Headline you want. For example, you wrote 5 Headlines for your ad copy, if someone types something related to your headline than that Headline will be shown in Google. It shows your Ad more often.
You can write 4 Descriptions in an Ad copy. Make the best use of “Responsive Ad Text” in Google Adwords to increase your ad copy performance.

Google Ads Household Target
Household income reporting and targeting option is now available in the Demographic Tab for Search Network Campaigns. In the old Google Ads Interface it was targeted via Location targeting but now it is removed. See the image below, so that it’s easy for you to understand. The household income is given in percentage and in different segments so it’s easy for you to check the highest number of clicks or conversions or cost incurred so that you adjust your bid accordingly. Bid adjustments can be set at the campaign level or Ad group level.
