The way display advertising operates is set to transform massively in the next few years, two Google executives have predicted.
According to Neal Mohan, vice president of product management and Barry Salzman, managing director of media and platforms for the Americas region, a large number of changes are on their way.
They told users of pay per click management services that the search engine is developing new video ad formats that internet users can choose to watch or skip over, as well as Google Goggles – a service which allows people to search the web on their phones by taking a picture.
The pair also expressed their excitement about the company’s new Teracent technology.
“[It] can dynamically alter the creative elements of an ad in real-time to make it more relevant and effective, depending on factors like geographic location, language [and] the content of the website,” they explained.
Earlier this week, Search Engine Land’s Matt Lawson advised companies running pay per click campaigns to provide special offers to early Christmas shoppers in order to boost their conversion rates.
