Mastering Image Search with Paid Advertising

By Samantha Hamilton

Google processes roughly 8.5 billion image searches each day (that's about 5.9 million searches per minute). Optimizing paid ads for image searches presents an opportunity for marketers to expand their reach and engage with audiences in a visually compelling manner.

Following the Google Marketing Live presentation, this opportunity is likely to continue increasing with Google expanding their image search capabilities. As this opportunity expands, there are a few ways to improve paid ad visibility regarding these image searches.

Tips & Tricks:

  • Avoid Stock Photos: Original images are going to perform better than a stock image that multiple advertisers may be using.

  • High Quality Images: Quick to load and responsive images are going to perform better.

  • Maximize Image Extensions: Having a variety of images within each campaign's image extensions will provide the most visibility opportunities.

  • & More.

As visual search continues to gain traction with the improvement of AI, optimizing paid search campaigns for image searches is a valuable opportunity. By leveraging high-quality visuals, we can enhance the visibility and effectiveness of advertising campaigns.
