Peculiarities of setting up contextual advertising in Australia

Australia ad campaign settings

  • When setting up Google Ads for Australia, it’s important to consider the mentality of that country. Since people in Australia mostly live in their own private house – every city is made up of a huge private sector. This affects the size of the city – Australian cities are very large in area. For example, to get from the northern part of the city of Perth to its southern outskirts, you need to overcome more than 50 kilometers. During rush hour, this can take more than an hour and a half. This is important to consider for a local business, for example, carpet cleaning, beauty salons, car services, etc.
  • An important factor that you should pay attention to is also the pendulum migration of potential customers during the day, as well as on weekdays and weekends. Thus, a PPC specialist should take into account that during the day a potential client can search the Internet for an appliance repair service in one district of Sydney, while being physically located on the other side of a big city, and this situation will be normal for Australia.
  • Due to its geographic location, Australia takes an active part in the economic and political processes of the Asia-Pacific region. On the territory of large cities – Canberra, Sydney and others, there are many local conferences, exhibitions, symposiums. If your business is related to holding them, or you want to set up Google Ads for visitors to these events, you need to target ad impressions to users not only within the country, but also to all residents of the region, identified as a suitable target audience according to certain criteria.

Australian search engine shares 2021

Google Paid Advertising is still the number one business customer acquisition in the world, and Australia is no exception. The share of the Google search engine in the Australian market for 2021 is more than 92+-2% of the total (data from different companies vary depending on their research, in the range of 90-94%). Other search engines, respectively, received the following share of users:

  • Bing – 4%;
  • DuckDuckGo – 0.9%;
  • Yahoo – 0.82%;
  • Ecosia – 0.19%.

An interesting observation is that the share of other search engines increased slightly after opening cases and issuing fines by the Australian Competition Authority in September 2021.

The Australian Competition Authority has decided to restrict Google’s use of user data used for advertising purposes, joining other regulators. They said that Google has an undisputed monopoly in the online advertising market in Australia, and this has already begun to harm both users and advertisers.
