Dynamic Search Ads is a fascinating Ad format/campaign type available on Google Ad Manager, these Ads follow the same auction and campaign structure logic compared to the Classic Search Ads many would know, they look pretty similar as well from a user’s eye on SERPs, the main difference is the targeting method, while DSA are either URL or feed-based while the Classic Search Ads are keyword-based.
Dynamic Search Ads use your website to dynamically trigger headlines and landing pages based on the user’s query. The purpose of these Ads is to capture this extra longtail traffic (very specific queries) that is necessarily captured by your Classic Search campaigns.
