Stay Top of Mind with Remarketing Ads

Remarketing ads are a great way to reach your website visitors again. After they leave your website, they will be shown your practice image or text ads on other websites. It works by your AdWords manager installing a code on your website that adds a cookie to every visitor’s browser who goes to that page. Then when they visit a website which is part of Google’s Display Network, an ad will show in the dimension of the available ad space. When the ad is clicked, the user will go to whatever page on your website you would like. Remarketing ads are also found on mobile phones and tablets.
