About Target search page location bidding

Target search page location is a type of portfolio bid strategy that automates bidding across multiple campaigns to show your ad on the top of the page or on the first page of Google search results. This article explains how the portfolio Target search page location bid strategy works and what its settings are.

Before you begin

If you don’t yet know what type of portfolio bid strategy is right for you, read about portfolio bid strategies.

How it works

Google Ads automatically raises or lowers your bids to show your ad on the top of the page or on the first page of Google search results. This bid strategy works with campaigns targeting the Search Network only.
After you first apply this strategy, it may take a few minutes before your bid is updated. Also, with this strategy, your bid will be updated several times a day to show your ads in your target location.
Make sure the strategy is applied to an active campaign, ad group, or keyword. Target search page location bidding is not compatible with Dynamic Search Ads, so if ad groups are targeting dynamic ad targets and no keywords, then the strategy will be inactive. If the strategy is new, please give this a few hours because the status may be slightly delayed.

Keep in mind: Placement isn't guaranteed

The Target search page location bid strategy doesn't guarantee placement on the top of the page, or ad position on the first page of search results. These estimates and the bid strategy will typically attempt to achieve your target location, but final placement is ultimately determined by the outcome of the ad auction, which is influenced by advertiser competition and Quality Score.

Settings

Placement

There are two options depending on whether you want to show your ad on the top of the page or the first page of Google search results:
  • Top of the first search results page: Let Google Ads automatically raise or lower bids to meet the top of the page bid estimate. The estimated top of the page bid amount approximates the cost-per-click (CPC) bid that might be needed for your ad to reach the top of the page of Google search results when a search term exactly matches your keyword.
  • Anywhere on the first search results page: Let Google Ads automatically raise or lower bids to meet the first page bid estimates. The estimated first page bid amount approximates the cost-per-click (CPC) bid that might be needed for your ad to reach the first page of Google search results when a search term exactly matches your keyword.

Bid automation

  • Automatically raise and lower bids to match the estimated top of page bid or estimated first page bid. With this setting, there's no need to set bids manually.
  • Set bids myself, but automatically adjust bids so they are at least as high as the estimated top of page bid or estimates first page bid. With this setting, you'll allow Google Ads to automatically raise bids when they drop below the estimate.

Optional

  • Bid adjustment: Bid adjustment can help make your bid more competitive. Use it to increase or decrease your bid by a percentage of the top of the page or first page bids. There are other types of bid adjustments that allow you to increase or decrease bids for mobile devices, locations, ad scheduling, and more. Learn more about bid adjustments.
  • Manual CPC bid limit: You can set a cap on bids for any keywords, ad groups, or campaigns using this bid strategy.

Advanced

  • Limited budgets: Choose whether to raise your bids if your campaign becomes "Limited by budget." Raising your bids in this situation may result in fewer clicks. Consider lowering your bids or increasing your budget instead. Lowering your bids could reduce the average amount you pay when someone clicks your ads, with the potential for your budget to go further and get more clicks.
  • Low quality keywords: Choose whether or not to raise your bids on keywords with a Quality Score of less than 4. Raising your bids could cause you to pay more for keywords that need improvement. Learn more about ways to improve keyword quality.
Note:-With Target search page location, Google Ads automatically sets your bids to increase the chances that your ads appear at the top of the page or on the first page of search results
A portfolio strategy groups together multiple campaigns into a single bid strategy.
