Google Ads is Extending the Parallel Tracking Deadline For Mobile Display & Video Campaigns
September 27, 2018 / Matt Southern
Google Ads is extending the deadline when advertisers are required to switch to parallel tracking.
The deadline extension applies specifically to mobile display and video campaigns. This past summer, Google announced parallel tracking will be required for all Search and Shopping advertisers. The deadline was originally set for October 30, 2018. It has now been extended to March 2019 for mobile display and video campaigns only. For advertisers, that means there will be no disruption to their click measurement program if they do not switch to parallel tracking in time for the holiday season. However, there is still an incentive for advertisers to make the switch if they’re able to do so.
