Local Ads on Google Maps App

Hello,

 

Is there a way so that I can prioritise my ad to run my ad on google maps. I run a hotel and I can see my competitors prioritising their ad on google maps (promoted pins). When I search for example hotels in jalandhar, I hardly ever see their ad on google search but they are always at the two top spots of the promoted pin. 

 

example: https://www.google.co.uk/maps?rlz=1C1CHBD_en-GBGB727GB727&espv=2&biw=1229&bih=639&q=hotels+in+jaland...

hi @Inderpal Singh

 

To enable Google Maps to show your search ads:

  • Enable location extensions for your AdWords account. Learn more
  • Set up or update your Google My Business listing. If you don't have a listing yet, set up your Google My Business listing. If you already have a listing, make sure your information is accurate. Learn more
  • Use location targeting and bid by location. Target a specific location and set bids by location, so that your bids increase for people located near your business. Learn more
  • Optimize your keywords. Use keywords in your campaigns that relate to your location and what people are searching for locally. Learn more

Hi Zaby,

 

Thank you for your reply. I already have ads showing on google maps but at the same time they are showing on google search too. Is there anyway I can only show on google maps and not on google search or decrease the ranking on google search to very low.
