I have recently updated the Google My Business category of a business I have recently started doing digital for (Imago Venues) from 4 star hotel to corporate office as it is head office for a number of hotels and venues. There is a ad running and we have no idea who is paying for it. Is there anyway of finding out?

That ad is generated through the Google AdWords account that is linked to the Google My Business account with that location. As long as location extensions are enabled it's possible to show ads on Google Maps, assuming location and keyword targeting are setup correctly.

Hi @Jon530,

 

Google will not reveal who is running an ad for account privacy & security. You would need to research internally to narrow it down. Talk with others on your team and any hotel operators or managers and ask about any listings services they are using like YP, or any TV advertising... as these companies often bundle some digital to their packages these days. You might want to talk with accounting, as well, and ask them to do a search for any vendors marked advertising.

 

Kind Regards,

 

James

Thanks James. We've done some digging and drawn a blank so far. Fingers crossed we'll get somewhere with it.
