What Are Google Gallery Ads?

So, it’s true — a picture really is worth a thousand words. This is especially relevant when you’re talking digital advertising. Studies have found that images are ten times more likely to garner interaction from online viewers because of the way our brains are wired. Humans are visual thinkers. Not surprisingly, Google knows this. Hence, the beta rollout earlier this month of Google Gallery Ads.

What Are Google Gallery Ads?

Google’s new gallery ads are visual advertisements that appear at the top of the screen during search results. They have the ability to showcase up to eight different images in a slideshow-like presentation to help advertisers better engage their target audience.

And by better engage, we mean transfix, captivate, mesmerize. At least, that’s the goal. And like all things Google, it seems to be working.

Fully-clickable, gallery ads are exactly what the name suggests — a miniature gallery of images that represent the best of what an advertiser has to offer. From tempting platters of palatable pasta to the beaming faces of children dressed in their back-to-school finest, gallery ads aim to catch your eye and your attention, encouraging you to click through the gallery to see everything the advertiser has to offer.

Too Much, Too Fast?

You might think that simply flashing random images across the top of search results would result in little recognition or remembrance, right? Not at all. Recent research conducted by neuroscientists at Massachusetts Institute of Technology found that the human brain has the ability to fully process an image after just 13 milliseconds of glimpsing it. When it comes to online marketing, images count, even when they come and go with all the speed of summer vacation.

High-Value Advertising

There’s no argument that Google’s new gallery ads will be a high-value option for advertisers who want to increase brand recognition, though just how high remains to be seen. Still, Google is Google, after all, and they have a pretty decent track record of reaching into our minds and extracting information we didn’t even know we were hoarding. Smart brands, especially start-ups, will definitely want to consider climbing on board the Google gallery train, once it pulls out of the beta station and becomes a real marketing option for the masses.

I could not recommend Waqid and Inbound SEO and Google ads agency more Highly. They are absolutely the SEO experts. They have done a fantastic job rebuilding our website And we have already seen a significant increase in traffic. Their customer service is outstanding and we could not be more pleased with the services they are providing.

Waqid at Clicked Solutions is very good at what he does. He took the time to explain the hows and whys that mystify SEO so that I could understand it. He stays on top of changes and updates to search engine algorithms to ensure his clients are using the most current and accepted practices. I also like that Clicked Solutions is willing to try out new types of online marketing and find ways to track the data so that the real value or lack thereof can be identified. Thank you for all of your help, Waqid & Jennifer!

Clicked Solutions has been handling my pay per click campaign, SEO and website creation and changes to my website for 7 years. Waqid knows what he is doing! My results are consistent. He can tract results down to the recorded phone call of my staff talking to the prospective new clients when they call in. If there ever is a problem, he can figure out what the issue is right away. I had a different person handling my account before Waqid and he that individual was not able to do that. I have been successful in my business as result of the hard work that Waqid and his staff and done on my behalf. I highly recommend Clicked Solutions for your internet advertising needs in whatever industry or service business that you are in.
