Google Will Not Let You Create Or Edit Expanded Text Ads After June 30, 2022

As we reported last year, Google Ads will be dropping support for expanded text ads in 2022. Starting June 30, 2022, you will no longer be able to create or edit your expanded text ads. Your existing expanded text ads will however continue to serve.

Google posted a reminder on Twitter and wrote again “starting June 30, 2022, responsive search ads will be the only Search ad type that can be created or edited in standard Search campaigns.”

Google added “As part of this change, you’ll no longer be able to create or edit expanded text ads. However, your existing expanded text ads will continue to serve alongside responsive search ads, and you’ll still see reports on their performance going forward. Additionally, you’ll be able to pause and resume your expanded text ads or remove them if needed. You’ll also still be able to create and edit call ads and Dynamic Search Ads.”

Google said “this change will help simplify the way you create Search ads and make it easier for you to drive performance with our automated tools.” Adding “Responsive search ads help you compete in a wider variety of relevant auctions by delivering ads that adapt to show the right message for the right query. This means that you can drive incremental conversions and create fewer ads—all while spending more time on strategic initiatives for your business.”

Google said “advertisers that switch from expanded text ads to responsive search ads, using the same assets, see an average of 7% more conversions at a similar cost per conversion.”

Google posted more best practices over here for you to review and prepare for with these changes.

Google started testing expanded text ads in 2016, so you see how fast things move in this space.

New Google Rich Results Guidelines Prevent Prohibited, Regulated Or Harmful Products

New Google Rich Results Guidelines Prevent Prohibited, Regulated Or Harmful Products

Google Search has added new content guidelines to the rich results help document. These new guidelines directly disallow you to markup product or content that are widely prohibited or regulated, or that can facilitate serious harm to self or others. Google said it will simply not show rich results on such products.

Product examples include firearms & weapons, recreational drugs, tobacco, vaping products, gambling-related products and other products that can pose acute threats of physical harm.

The new guidelines were posted over here and read:

Don’t mark up content that promotes widely prohibited or regulated goods, services, or information that may facilitate serious and/or immediate or long term harm to self or others. This includes content related to firearms & weapons, recreational drugs, tobacco & vaping products and gambling-related products.

This new policy is effective already and I assume you will soon, if not already, not see rich results in Google Search for these types of products. This includes Google not showing star ratings, prices, or availability information and so on.

Google told me “this policy change will align the rich snippets feature with other Search surfaces that display product information from merchants, to help provide consistency and clarity.”

Google will not issue manual actions in Google Search Console for violation of this guidelines, Google will simply will just not show the rich results in Google Search.

Here is a screenshot from Glenn Gabe of it already going missing for sites:
