Explanations is a BETA feature in Google Ads that give you insights into large changes in your Google Ads account performance. When you see a significant fluctuation in performance for a Search campaign or ad group, explanations help you quickly find out why it happened.
With explanations, you can view the reason for any change in clicks, impressions, cost and conversions in a single click. This makes it easy for you to spend more time focusing on optimization and less time investigating performance issues.
Before you get started with explanations, keep the following in mind:
- Explanations are currently available for manual CPC or eCPC Search campaigns
- Explanations can compare two time periods of equal length within the last 90 days
- Explanations may only show for campaigns with significant performance changes
By refining keywords, you can group together ideas based on the attributes of your product or service–like color, size, and more.
For example, let’s say that you’re looking for keywords related to “dry skin.” In the past, you would’ve had to sort through thousands of keyword ideas.
Now, you can filter attributes to include or remove keyword ideas related to dry skin, such as ‘face cream for dry skin’, ‘face lotion for dry skin’ and ‘best winter face cream’.
This looks like a great addition to Google Keyword Planner, it can work well as a content ideas generation tool as well. Can’t wait to try this out. Hopefully, it’s not a limited beta.
