Similar Audiences in Google are based on your remarketing audiences.

Google Ads will scan through your remarketing list and using machine learning it will find or generate new audiences who have shown a similar search or browsing behavior to your existing list.

​​Once this similar audience visits your site they will be excluded from the similar audience and included on the remarketing list instead.

Be careful when using similar audiences!


​​If only 2% of your website visitors convert, the other 98% might not be good visitors for you. So using all users who have ever come to your website as the basis of your similar audience will give you an audience mostly similar to the 98% of people who didn’t convert! You definitely don’t want an audience similar to people who bounced.

​​Here’s how to fix it.

​​Wherever possible, if you’re going to use similar audiences, only use similar audiences based on remarketing audiences where the users transacted, added to cart, subscribed, interacted for a minute or did some other activity where they indicated interest in your products and services.

If you don’t have conversion remarketing audiences available (PS. we offer this as a service), you can create a remarketing audience of users who did not bounce, and this will make a much better similar audience for you than just an “all users” similar audience.

Businesses that get the most value from similar audiences are typically transactional, eg ecommerce, hotels and other retail industries with large traffic volumes. This is because Google will be able to create more accurate similar audiences the more members are on your underlying remarketing lists.​​

Ian Gale - Sleepwise Clinic

Petra was instrumental in pulling all our clinic's web analytics into one easy to read, dynamic report that's accessible to me at any time, and works with our EXACT booking system.

This has allowed me to see, at a glance, what marketing initiatives are working, need tweaking, or changing altogether, saving me both time and money. I can't recommend her or her analytic services enough.

Petra's detailed reports and her personal assistance has been helping us to know where to concentrate our efforts and even showed us technical issues we needed to fix. Our Audience Engagement Report identified several key interests of our buying audience. We tried targeting one of those interests and it brought in two sales almost immediately! I highly recommend working with Petra and accessing her brilliance to scale your business.

Here at 1834 Hotels we centralise the marketing for many different hotels. It can be an enormous undertaking to monitor and track the performance of each one, especially when they are all on separate webpages.

Petra helped to resolve this difficulty by creating a central hub in Google Tag Manager and Google Analytics with Cross-domain tracking and Ecommerce as well. She created many valuable analytics dashboards and reports that draw from the centralized source. Now that we have all the analytics tracking working it has improved the accuracy of our reporting and the insights have helped develop better marketing strategies.

Petra’s skills and wealth of knowledge is fantastic. I would recommend Petra without hesitation.

I have been working with Petra for over a year now after changing from a much larger digital marketing provider and I could not be more pleased with the service and results my business is achieving.

With my previous providers I felt disconnected with limited communication. Petra on the other hand provides me with knowledge and information in a language I can understand that helps me make informed decisions not just about digital marketing but also my e-commerce business as a whole.

Petra has helped me navigate seasonal drops in trade creating a strategy that helped us grow and establish a healthy position in the market. It is an absolute joy to work with someone who loves what they do. I have complete confidence in recommending Petra to anyone considering e-commerce digital marketing, she is efficient, trusted and a true professional.
