Book AdvertisingTo optimize your online book advertising campaign and improve ad performance, you need to use sitelink extensions, review extensions, and the new callout extensions. Why you need to use them:

  • Google gives preference to ads that use ad extensions.
  • It is a great way to add additional information about your book to potential readers beyond the ads three lines of text.

Sitelink Extensions

Ad sitelink extensions are links that searchers can click on that take them to a specific page on a website.  See the image below.

Review Extension

An ad review extension is a way to incorporate a third party review in your ad. However, the third party review must be from a third party review site or website. No individual reviews, it must be from the site itself (e.g., Kirkus, NY Journal of Books, Foreward Reviews, etc.).  See the image below.
