Discovery Advertising

Discovery ads display a single static image along with a headline and a description.  Google requires multiple headlines, descriptions, and images so that Google’s AI can test different ad variants and eventually provide users with custom messaging. 

Discovery ads appear in connection with feed-based content on YouTube Home, Watch Next feeds, Gmail, and Discover. They don’t use account-level content exclusion settings that are only applicable to websites, pages, videos, and apps.

Discovery Advertising Benefits


Audience Targeting

Now we can target customers that have certain interests and in-market audiences for specific services and products.

Not Casual Observers

Discovery ads are said to reach people who are ready to discover and engage. Whereas Display ads are great for general awareness, which isn't always the main objective of eCommerce businesses.


Find New Customers

Placement is pre-determined to ensure they appear as much like native content as possible but that enables you to reach more new customers who aren't actively looking for your products.

Identify New Target Markets

Limited control over bid strategy. The content is key driver in ad appearance not cost or bid price so consumers are more likely to see it as organic content.
