Alphabet, which is Google’s parent company showcased promising financial performance for 2023’s second quarter. The main driving force is the recent improvement in artificial intelligence and Google Search.
During the earnings call of the company, Sundar Pichai, the CEO of Alphabet directed focus on its ongoing efforts to improve Search and the company’s dominance in AI.
Pichai also added that the company is leading the way in setting standards for proper AI implementation. This is evident by the many new releases of Google AI tools and services that have truly transformed Search.
The advertising business of Alphabet and Google Search has improved a lot, thanks to the new Generative AI.
The Senior Vice President, and Chief Business Officer at Google, Philipp Schindler, has proudly disclosed that 80% of worldwide businesses have already started using at least one AI-powered advertising product from Google. Especially those who have invested in advertising.
As per Schindler’s latest statement, this AI advancement made by Google will give the power back to the advertisers. They can plan the campaign more wisely, address obstacles or eliminate them, and be more creative with their strategy.
With the efficiency of generative AI, Alphabet is now experimenting with new ad designs, functionalities, and positions. This means advertisers can be more experimental with their ads to make them more engaging and customized.
The Future of Artificial Intelligence in Advertising & Search
Additionally, Google revealed how it intends to use its AI chatbot within Search to display Shopping and Search advertisements.
We already know the company's recent demonstration of how adverts can be shown above and below the chatbot experience.
With these advertisements, consumers who use the generative AI tool to search for a new bike are presented with recommendations for related products as well as advice on important things to take into account before making a purchase. After that, users can investigate further recommended next steps or pose follow-up queries. Google Ad Campaign for Search will be visible on the website in designated ad spots during this experience.
Directly Integrated Search Advertisements
According to a statement made by Google today, the AI-powered conversational and snapshot modes will soon test "directly integrated" advertisements. These advertisements will be added and shown with pertinent search queries in the upcoming months.
When looking for outdoor activities in Maui, for instance, a person can focus on "surfing" and "activities for kids" in their search parameters. After doing so, the customer can see an advertisement for a vacation company that suggests kids' surfing classes in that region. These advertisements will have the word "Sponsored" prominently marked in strong, black writing.
AI's Role in the Future Field of Search and Advertising
Artificial intelligence can be more prevalent in Google Search Campaigns and Advertising given Alphabet's continued expenditures in the technology and its ability to successfully integrate AI into both domains.
Alphabet's ongoing advancements in AI systems hold promise for more personalized, user-friendly, and efficient search and advertising offerings.
A Wish Come True For Small Businesses?
Switching to a contextual, conversational search strategy that summarizes material can help smaller websites with in-depth, reputable content on specialized subjects.
Writing your content in a way that is more understandable and summarized for Google will automatically boost your ranking, especially when compared to the big sites producing general content on a large scale.
Regardless, there are certain risks associated with it.
You need to make sure that you are not focusing only on keyword matching and other technicalities, as Google has never focused on keyword matching. If this is true, smaller businesses would have a tougher time ranking for certain queries. However, if their overall content is strong enough for the algorithm to draw relevant links, ranking won’t be a problem.
As time goes on, smaller companies might need to shift their attention. They might need to focus on offering more thorough, insightful material within their niche instead of targeting certain keywords.
Depending on the depth and authority of your content will decide how generative Search will understand and rank your site. This approach is specifically beneficial for small websites that have been publishing quality and informative content.
The Bottom Line
During its most recent earnings call, Alphabet highlighted how massive language models and AI are being used by the company to improve Google Search and Ads.
According to preliminary results, these advancements in generative AI will make interactions more conversational and natural.
Alphabet's developments show how AI has the potential to completely transform search and advertising, even though it's still early.
