AdWords’ New Demographics Charts Offer Visual Insights On Age, Gender & Parental Status
Charts show demographic performance and reach for ads running on the Google Display Network.
The Demographics tab began rolling out last month. The new charts make it easier to visualize who your ads are reaching on the display network. You can view demographic reach in the charts by impressions, clicks or conversions with a drop-down.
You can also analyze demographic data further by enabling “View demographics combinations”. This allows you to see performance by two or more demographic criteria — Females, Age 34-44, for example. Combination detail is available at an ad group view or account view. You may see lots of “Unknown” entries, these can be filtered out if desired.
These insights can then be used in bidding with demographic targeting, and inform your ad copy targeting different demographic groups. Demographic targeting can be combined with any targeting strategy on the display network.
Note that demographic targeting is not available in all countries.
