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.​​

Your attention to detail is beyond what I had expected. The detail of the data is incredible. The best part though was to learn the profile demographic - which is very different to whom I think I've been trying to target through social.

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.

I recently worked with Petra to improve my understanding of Google Tag Manager.

Petra not only provided a solid overview of GTM set up and event tracking, she also provided many tips on best practice, and answered the questions that I didn't even know to ask!

Petra is patient, fun to work with, and her analytical programming mind is hell bent on finding the BEST solution to any data, analytics or tracking problem.
