Google Adwords Expands To Include Phone Number And Address Targeting
Google clients Match becomes more reachable to advertisers that don’t have huge client email lists.

Google has added additional ways for businesses to mark their recognized clientele with AdWords campaigns. As of this month, advertisers can upload mobile numbers and mailing addresses for client Match retargeting and related viewers.

Launched in 2015, Client Match enables marketers to upload lists of consumers or other proprietary lists newsletter readers, for instance into Google AdWords to target (or exclude) research and display advertisements to those consumers. Until today, Customer Match just supported email listing uploads.

As with email information, Google tries to match mobile number and mailing address information with client-provided information in Google accounts.

Hashed email addresses and mobile numbers are coordinated up with Google’s own hashed strings to locate matches. The matches are then added to traders’ Clients Match lists.

To match the mail address, Google stated that “It connects hashed name and address data for Google accounts to make a matching key. After you have uploaded your list with hashed clients names and addresses (do not hash zip and nation information), Google builds a parallel key based on your data and then compares each key on your list with the keys based on Google accounts. If there is a match, Google adjoins the parallel Google account to your client’s list.”

Advertisers can use clients Match to focus on those matched clients across all Google properties, counting search text and shopping advertisements, display, Gmail, and YouTube. The lists can also be used to form similar viewers for targeting on Gmail and YouTube campaigns.

Mobile and mailing directory can be uploaded via the AdWords API or in the new AdWords interface. The viewer’s Manager is situated in the Shared Library, which is accessed by clicking on the wrench icon in the upper-right navigation.
The accumulation of mobile numbers and mailing addresses unlock more opportunities for marketers who do not have a large set of email addresses to influence their own first-party information — from catalogue and call center auctions, for example in Google campaigns.
