Programmatic Ads and Google

by Jason Boucher

Today’s digital advertising landscape includes programmatic ads that have quickly emerged as a powerful tool, and Google has played a significant role in the success. If you’re new to this, programmatic advertising is the automated buying of digital ad space, effectively reaching the right audience at the right time for your clients.

One key aspect that makes programmatic ads successful is their ability to target specific audiences accurately. Google’s giant data pool enables advertisers to reach potential customers based on demographics, interests, and online behavior. For example, if a footwear retailer wants to target runners aged 24-34, programmatic ads can deliver ads directly to this audience.

Programmatic ads provide real-time optimization, ensuring ads are continually sifted and filtered for better results. Google’s algorithms analyze user engagement and adjust bidding strategies properly. As a result, ad spending is optimized, and return on investment (ROI) increases. In 2022, a study by eMarketer found that programmatic advertising accounted for nearly 90% of total U.S. digital ad spend, showcasing its growing dominance. Thanks to social media apps, it’s increased to over 90% on mobile devices.

To demonstrate the effectiveness of programmatic ads, consider the success of Airbnb. They use programmatic advertising to target users interested in traveling to specific locations. By leveraging user behavior and search history data, Airbnb delivers ads to users more likely to book a stay, resulting in increased bookings and increased revenue.


The success of programmatic ads with Google has been proven. With precise targeting, real-time optimization, and a lion’s share of the digital ad market, programmatic advertising is almost essential for businesses seeking to maximize their online presence and drive conversions. The examples mentioned here only emphasize its effectiveness, making it a valuable choice for advertisers and agencies as we head into 2024.
