Dynamic remarketing with assets

Historically, campaigns have used Feeds for dynamic remarketing. We are in the process of removing support for feeds.

Dynamic remarketing enables your campaign to serve ads tailored to a user's past behaviour. When a user is added to a dynamic remarketing list, the ID of an asset is also provided in the tracking pixel. When a user from the list sees an ad, the content for the ad is dynamically rendered from the underlying AssetSet.

This document describes the process for managing dynamic remarketing campaigns with assets for dynamic content.

Create assets to serve in your dynamic remarketing campaign

You can use the API to manage assets that contain the custom content for your ad. The Asset contains an ID which can be used in the tracking pixel, together with the customized content to serve in the ad.

Package assets together into an AssetSet

An AssetSet represents the collection of Asset objects which can be used for dynamic remarketing in a particular campaign. An AssetSet can be associated with many campaigns that can reuse the same group of Assets as required. This is similar to how the Google Ads UI lets you specify the "data feed" for a dynamic remarketing campaign.

Asset Set in UI

The first step is to create a new AssetSet to house your assets.

Java

// Creates an AssetSet which will be used to link the dynamic remarketing assets to a campaign.
AssetSet assetSet =
    AssetSet.newBuilder()
        .setName("My dynamic remarketing assets " + CodeSampleHelper.getPrintableDateTime())
        .setType(AssetSetType.DYNAMIC_EDUCATION)
        .build();
// Creates an operation to add the link.
AssetSetOperation operation = AssetSetOperation.newBuilder().setCreate(assetSet).build();
try (AssetSetServiceClient serviceClient =
    googleAdsClient.getLatestVersion().createAssetSetServiceClient()) {
  // Sends the mutate request.
  MutateAssetSetsResponse response =
      serviceClient.mutateAssetSets(
          String.valueOf(params.customerId), ImmutableList.of(operation));
  // Prints some information about the response.
  String resourceName = response.getResults(0).getResourceName();
  System.out.printf("Created asset set with resource name %s.%n", resourceName);
  return resourceName;
}
      

C#

{
    AssetSetServiceClient assetSetService = client.GetService(
        Services.V10.AssetSetService);

    // Creates an AssetSet which will be used to link the dynamic remarketing assets
    // to a campaign.
    AssetSet assetSet = new AssetSet()
    {
        Name = "My dynamic remarketing assets " + ExampleUtilities.GetRandomString(),
        Type = AssetSetType.DynamicEducation
    };

    // Creates an operation to add the link.
    AssetSetOperation operation = new AssetSetOperation()
    {
        Create = assetSet
    };
    // Sends the mutate request.
    MutateAssetSetsResponse response = assetSetService.MutateAssetSets(
        customerId.ToString(), new[] { operation });
    // Prints some information about the response.
    string resourceName = response.Results[0].ResourceName;

Now that you have an AssetSet containing your dynamic content, you're ready to link it to a campaign so that the assets can start serving. This is achieved by creating a CampaignAssetSet.

Java

// Creates a CampaignAssetSet representing the link between an AssetSet and a Campaign.
CampaignAssetSet campaignAssetSet =
    CampaignAssetSet.newBuilder()
        .setCampaign(ResourceNames.campaign(params.customerId, params.campaignId))
        .setAssetSet(assetSetResourceName)
        .build();
// Creates an operation to add the CampaignAssetSet.
CampaignAssetSetOperation operation =
    CampaignAssetSetOperation.newBuilder().setCreate(campaignAssetSet).build();
// Creates an API connection.
try (CampaignAssetSetServiceClient client =
    googleAdsClient.getLatestVersion().createCampaignAssetSetServiceClient()) {
  // Issues the mutate request.
  MutateCampaignAssetSetsResponse response =
      client.mutateCampaignAssetSets(
          String.valueOf(params.customerId), ImmutableList.of(operation));
  String resourceName = response.getResults(0).getResourceName();
  System.out.printf("Created a CampaignAssetSet with resource name %s.%n", resourceName);
}

Target a UserList

Once you've set up your campaign with a dynamic remarketing feed, you can target it with a UserList. This user list should have been created with the dynamic IDs populated in the tracking pixel.

Download reports for your dynamic remarketing campaign

Currently there is no reporting available for assets in dynamic remarketing campaigns in order to maintain feature parity with the legacy feeds-based setup, which had no FeedItem-level stats. We may add reporting for dynamic remarketing assets in the future.

Specify asset tracking IDs

There are at least two IDs present in each dynamic remarketing asset. Each dynamic remarketing asset type defines its own unique ID.

For example, in the case of DynamicEducationAsset, you should specify the dynamic_education_asset.program_id and optionally dynamic_education_asset.location_id in the tracking pixel.

Do not specify asset.id in the tracking pixel as this has no meaning outside of the Google Ads API.
