Extensions for Local searches | Promotion extension

Searchers are always looking for the best deal, so if you have sales and promotions, you should activate Promotion extension.

Cost
There is no cost when Google Ads shows the Promotion extension.

You are charged only if a searcher clicks your ad, and at a cost per click based on your bids, and you won’t be charged for more than two clicks per ad impression.

If someone quickly clicks on more than one link while viewing an ad, this gets treated as a second click and you won’t get charged.
