Google Maps Ad Unit

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi,

 

I saw recently (and heard about a) ad unit in the Google Maps app. These ads appear when searching for directions as one of the options, for instance when I search for a way to get from A to B, below the regular options like different bus routs, I see an Uber ad for the trip I just searched. Does anybody here know how can I advertise there?

 

Thank you for your help,

Nizan

Hi Nizan,

 

There is no need to make a special campaign for Maps. Just make sure that you existing search ads campaign fits the criteria.

See the instructions here:

Hi,

Thank you for that prompt respond!
However, I'm not sure that what you referred me to is what I'm looking for.
I think that the local search ads is this:

But I'm looking for how to advertise using ads like this:

The main difference between the two types of ads is that the first one you
see when you insert a search term on the main search field, and the second
type you see when you plan a trip (a route from A to B). I didn't find a
way to do it in the local search ads.

Thanks!
