Google has just introduced Google Leads Extensions (in beta) with Google Ads and if you’re an advertiser on Google with a slow mobile website, you could reap the benefits.
It’s no secret that advertising on mobile can be hard; the screens are a lot smaller than desktop PCs, the connection is usually slower and you have your audience’s attention for a shorter period of time.

We live in a busy, fast-paced era where mobile is the quickest and easiest way to find something, so if you have a slow website that isn’t particularly user-friendly and no time to fix it, then Google Ads could provide the solution.
The Google lead extension will appear beneath your search ad on mobiles, tablets and most handheld devices connected to the internet. They allow users to provide contact information directly through your advert in the SERPs, eliminating the need for users to visit your mobile site to convert. If the user is signed into their Google account then the form will already be pre-populated with their contact information and all they need to do is simply submit it.

Lead forms work only as an extension to an existing search campaign, so bidding and targeting options are determined by the campaign your form is being attached to.
The new Google Ads lead extension can be added to both new and existing search campaigns and it’s a fairly straightforward process. In order to add this extension to a campaign, follow these simple steps:
