Posted by

Google is making it easy to change to data-driven attribution for Google Advertising campaigns and letting marketers see how it will impact campaigns before switching.

Data-driven attribution is the most-used and default attribution for Google Ads campaigns. Nevertheless, advertisers may be reluctant to alter their favored attribution design due to unpredictability about how it will affect performance.

In a post, Google supporters for switching to data-driven attribution, saying marketers usually experience a boost in conversions compared to their present attribution model:

“Advertisers who change to data-driven attribution from another attribution model typically see a 6% typical boost in conversions. With data-driven attribution, artificial intelligence algorithms appoint fractional credit to client touch points which may have previously been underestimated. Smart Bidding can then respond to these opportunities, leading to performance gains.”

To help more marketers see comparable efficiency gains, Google is bringing more transparency to how data-driven attribution will impact accounts.

Google is presenting a new tool that will offer advertisers a clearer understanding of the impacts of data-driven attribution before switching to it. The tool is developed to help advertisers feel more positive about switching attribution designs.

Google is launching a brand-new tool to imitate how automated bidding would have reacted to data-driven attribution over the past 7 days.

Marketers can use this tool to see how data-driven attribution will affect their accounts before quiting their present attribution model.

Google’s blog post continues:

“As with any account change, understanding what to expect is crucial. That’s why we will soon be launching a simulation tool to eligible marketers that will allow you to see how automatic bidding would have reacted to data-driven attribution over the last 7 days. This will assist you understand the impacts of data-driven attribution on your account before making the switch.”
