Ads Grader currently analyzes data to grade advertising on eight quality categories related to performance and spend inefficiencies along with Google Ads best practices around keywords, ad quality, and smart bidding adoption. By end of May Ads Grader will be available in seven languages including Portuguese, German, Spanish, Italian, French, and Japanese. Users can anticipate the release of new functionality coming soon including advanced ad account insights, dashboard and user accounts, and MoM ad spend tracking and account grader improvements.
