- Google Display Network: A network of third-party sites (such as Google partners) that display ads from Google on their site as banner or display ads.
- Custom Audiences: You can filter audiences based on their demographics, location, intent, past online habits and actions, email address, age, gender, and many more.
- Dynamic Search Ads: Google’s automated process for choosing keywords to target based on the content on your website so ads will target only inventory that you are selling directly.
