Remarketing Text ads showing images from Google My Business (as image extensions)

Hi All,


I use two remarketing campaigns. One for image and one for text.


The text ads are taking images from GMB- and putting them below text ads. (Making them image ads)


Can this be prevented?

(I will usually agree agree on copy and imagery with the client)- but this is taking away control.

Recently an image was taken in that was totally wrong with what the advertiser wanted.

So I had to pause the text ads campaigns (that are automatically showing image extensions).


I just want text ads to be text ads (unless they are dynamic text ads- when applicable).


Best Regards

Hi Liam,


The solution is to switch off location extensions in the display campaign.


Here’s a Display Network example. A major clothes retailer wants to target the audience segment “Fashionistas” – encouraging people browsing online to come into the nearby shop and make purchases. To accomplish this goal, the shop’s account manager sets up location extensions. Now, location-based ads – that include the store's location, Google Maps directions and images – may show to people on Display Network websites and apps.
