Google is always looking for ways to enhance a user’s online experience, with artificial intelligence (AI) being at the forefront of this change. Not only does AI provide a better online experience for users by showing them the most relevant content at the right time, but its automation capabilities are also providing advertisers with more efficient Google Ads setup and management processes.

In this article, we’ll take a look at how AI is changing Google Ads and explore how we can make the most of this shift towards AI-powered advertising. Let’s get started.

How is AI Transforming Google Ads?

Google has been working hard in Google Ads to change the way that advertisers optimise campaigns and identify target audiences to boost return on investment (ROI).

Features like Smart Bidding use AI to automatically set bids for each auction, ensuring that ads reach the right people at the right time. But what else can AI do in Google Ads?

Generate Effortless Ad Creatives with AI


Creating high-quality, unique ad assets can be quite time-consuming, but with the help of AI, advertisers now have prompts to create new ad variations in just seconds. The example that we’ve added below shows some of the ad copy suggestions that Google’s AI provides when setting up a new campaign. By analysing what works well in other campaigns, Google’s AI can suggest phrases that are likely to work well in a new ad.

 By suggesting engaging and relevant ad copy, advertisers can automatically generate variations of your content efficiently. It can also be useful when creating ad copy around specific holidays or particular demographics.

Enhanced Image Editing with AI


Google Ads is now offering AI-powered image editing tools within the Google Ads platform. Images can be generated based on ad copy or landing pages and will allow testing of new variations of existing images at scale. No more needing extensive design resources – AI will handle the heavy lifting.

Below we have added an example of how Google’s interactive AI can help to provide relevant images based on the criteria that it was provided.

Google AI Recommendations


The ‘Recommendations’ tab in your Google Ads account is a result of AI technology. By analysing your data, Google can create a list of practical recommendations to help your campaigns perform better.

Challenges in AI-Powered Advertising

Although AI-powered advertising allows businesses and marketers to streamline existing strategies and methods, it can come with its challenges:

  • Data Privacy: AI relies heavily on data, meaning that we need to be even more careful when handling customer data. After all, trust is a major factor in Google’s E-E-A-T guidelines.
  • AI Adoption: With advancements in AI changes and algorithm updates, it’s important to stay up-to-date with the latest changes in AI-powered advertising. At Proof3, our team is committed to monitoring these advancements, ensuring that your paid campaigns are effective.
  • Human Element: As with everything AI, it’s important to consider the human element that AI can’t provide. Although it may seem simple to agree with every Google Ads recommendation to improve your campaign performance, these changes must reflect your business’s long-term objectives.
