3) Callout Extensions in AdWords

-The newest extension available in Google AdWords is called a callout extension.  Similar to a sitelink extension, the callout extension offers extra space to promote something about the business.  Google hints that these work best if you use the space to advertise any unique selling propositions about the company.   


Google AdWords Callout Extensions


Unlike sitelink extensions, callout extensions are not clickable.  They simply act more like a banner to display a simple line of text to the reader.  The bonus is that an ad with the callout extensions will take up more real estate within Google search results. Ask your online marketing consultant today how to enable these for your campaigns.
