Google is giving businesses free Ads in Google Maps

Google is enabling a feature that allows advertisers using their Smart campaigns with Google My Business listings to use promoted pins without any charge until the end of September 2020. This is to help support and promote businesses affected by the lockdowns enforced due to the COVID-19 crisis. If your business was affected by the lockdown, be sure to take advantage of this offer while you can to help promote your business to a returning audience.

Google is getting tough on its Ads policies

Over the last few months, Google has been busy with updating and changing its Ads policies. Anyone who spends a lot of time working with PPC has probably been frustrated a few times with the frequent changes in policy and expectations. But this is all part of Google’s efforts to put relevant content in front of its users and to not promote anything that is misrepresentative or harmful.
