Hello AdWords Community Members, and welcome to the weekly digest. Here’s what you may have missed in the boards last week:

 

What’s New in AdWords?

  • Social extensions on ads showing on Google and the Search Partners Network have been discontinued as of December 10th. Please review how you can use Sitelinks or Callout Extensions to share this information instead
  • Advertiser with an iPhone? You can request a spot in the beta for the AdWords app for iOS through this form
  • Starting this January, all advertisers with administrative-level access to their AdWords accounts will have the ability to change the names of their accounts. We recommend that agencies revisit the names of their clients’ accounts before this date, since end clients will be able to see the names of their accounts at that time. Learn more here
  • You can now add two lines to Structured Snippets instead of one. More here.
  • More reporting is now available for automated bidding strategies like Target CPA and Target Search Page Location
  • Smart Goals in Analytics can help you optimize your AdWords account. See here for the full Inside AdWords post, and below for Pankaj’s in-depth article

 

Announcements & Updates

  • We have new experts to congratulate! @Alexey C and @leandrofm have been promoted to Rising Star, and @Ratan-Jha is our newest Top Contributor. Head over to this thread to learn more about these three rockstars.

Check out the rest of the Learn section for more in-depth discussions of both basic and advanced topics.
