This is a huge upgrade! Google has managed to reach new and multiple audiences in a very useful way not just for advertisers, but for users by reducing the amount of irrelevant / uninteresting ads they see. 

For example, advertisers can now go beyond the standard targets of the past and focus on education, parental status, marital status and home ownership. These demographic factors are designed to help you reach relevant target audiences more specifically and accurately, enabling you to deliver more relevant ROI focused advertising. 

 

The bottom line

The new structure provides an organized overview of the different advertising options that Google offers.  


The new ad tools are perfectly simplified and inspire in their simple complexity. ;)
