When Smart Shopping campaigns are used, the existing product feed and elements are combined with Google’s machine learning in order to display various ads on the networks. System tests the data received from the product feed with different combination of image and text elements provided by the brand and then displays the most relevant ads to the consumers on Google networks including Google Search Network, Google Display Network, YouTube and Gmail.


Featuring more than 200 thousand products on Google Merchant Center with SEM through the Smart Shopping campaign, idefix assigned the task related to target group to machine learning.
