Location Extensions and Google Maps Listings

Do you need to have location extensions enabled for a advertisement pin to be displayed on Google maps?  We prefer to not have our address listed in our text ads but noticed that depending on the search query in maps and the zoom level, sometimes a pin for your advertisement shows up before a pin for your Google Places pin.

You need to create a Google my business account where you can add the addresses of your businesses/stores.

And then you need to link that account with your adwords account.

So essentially you can't have an Adwords pin on maps without also displaying your address in your Adwords text ad (if you are in the top 2 or 3 listings) ?

Hi Jeff,

 

If you refer to this Help Center page, you'll see that yes, you need to have a Location Extension on your ad in order for your ad to be eligible to show on-map. 

 

Hope this helps,
Cassie
