The tech tycoon Google is rolling out cross-device ad retargeting for Google Display Network and DoubleClick Bid Manager. This way brands will be able to showcase potential customers ads on their smartphones and desktops on any preferable time.
Previously, Google did support cross-device retargeting.
“We’re introducing cross-device remarketing for Google Display Network and DoubleClick Bid Manager to help you reach the same user across devices, apps, and sites. You can now tell a single story to your audience and decide how frequently they see your ad across devices,” announced Brad Bender, VP of display and video advertising at Google,
Tracking Users Via Logins
Google is all set to change its plan of tracking user via cookies and will be moving towards log-ins to identify people on the web for marketing purposes.
Many might not be aware of this, but Google mints mighty revenue via advertising online. The world’s favorite website dynamically keeps a track of everyone’s online activities to showcase ads that match their web behavior.
Seems like Google is revamping its strategy by ditching web cookies for log-ins. Similarly Facebook, in direct competition to Google, will also be using logged-in data to tout users on the websites and applications.

Turns out, the traditional way of tracking via cookies and mobile IDs is futile cross-device and cross-channel campaigns.
Similarly, ad-blockers reduce the effectiveness of cookies, prompting Google to change its plan.
What is more, Google has released Penguin 4.0 algorithm has been updated again after 2 years. The Penguin would filters sites that appear spam.
“Penguin is now more granular. Penguin now devalues spam by adjusting ranking based on spam signals, rather than affecting ranking of the whole site“, says Google in its post.
The search engine has also rolled out several other AdWords tools like “Location extensions and store visits measurement for the Google Display Network”, a tool to help marketers close the loop between online ads and offline sales; and “Cross-device remarketing for Google Display Network and DoubleClick Bid Manager”, a tool to help marketers reach the same user across devices, apps, and sites.
