Optily vs Google Ads Which should I use?
You've tried Facebook Ads and tried Google Ads, but haven't seen an increase in your ROAS? Maybe it's time to truly optimize your ads with Optily!

Google Ads is the largest PPC advertising platform in the world. But, just because it’s the most popular doesn’t mean it suits every business.

If you are struggling to see the ROAS spend you expect with Google Ads, Optily could be the marketing solution you’ve been looking for!

Optily allows marketers to manage all ads campaigns, across the entire advertising world including Google and Facebook.

Both platforms offer powerful advertising optimization software, however, Optily has a few tricks up its sleeve which may be able to convince you to try it for your business…(revenue-based financing 👀🤫)

Let’s jump right into a comparison and see how Optily vs. Google Ads fair, head-to-head. 🥊

What is Optily?

What is Google Ads?

Google Ads is the most popular paid advertising platform in the world. It provides pay-per-click (PPC) advertising, where businesses pay per click or per impression (CPM) on an ad that they create.

Google boasts “Over 267 million unique visitors and 4.8 billion daily interactions,” making it one of the most effective places to advertise your business.

Google Ads falls into the Paid Search category. It is an effective way to drive qualified leads to your business at the point in which they’re searching for products and services similar to yours.

The platform allows you to automate and schedule ads to be used in the most effective way and the most effective time to reach your target audience.

Looks Comparison 😎

It may be silly, but let’s face it, we often judge by looks. So rather than shying away from it, let’s steer into it and see how both platforms look.


The Optily dashboard is user-friendly, provides in-depth analysis, and is easily customizable.

Below is an example dashboard for an online bookstore. As improving your ROAS is what we do here at Optily, I thought it only fitting to give a quick snapshot of what the Conversions ROAS Overview screen looks like.

In this customization it includes:

  • Overall ROAS
  • Overall Channel Revenue
  • CPC, CPM, and Ad spend
  • A detailed breakdown of individual campaigns
  • A graph visualizing and comparing individual campaign performances

Google Ads

When you begin using Google Ads, it starts you off with a general account overview dashboard.

This screen provides information on how your various ad campaigns are performing. It includes data such as whether or not you have more activity than usual and the specific keywords people are searching which brings them to your ad.

This allows you to quickly determine whether or not your campaigns are performing at optimal.

Truth be told though, not many people use the general account overview dashboard and opt for a custom one instead.

Check out this blog from Google on how to create and customize your own dashboard to suit your specific needs.

Automation Comparison ⚙

As you can see by now both platforms are extremely intelligent and powerful advertising tools. Both offer their own unique benefits individually… but what if we could use them together? Combining these two systems would make an impressive ad optimization tool for your business.

Google Ads provides PPC automation. This system uses conditional statements to perform advertising actions on your behalf. As the marketer, you can set automated rules to check for conditions such as “When the keyphrase ‘ad optimization’ is searched”.  When those conditions are met, your ad bid will be automatically adjusted to ensure your business is seen at the right place at the right time.

Optily takes this automation to new levels. Based on instant insights and intelligent automation software backed by reliable data, Optily can boost your ROAS in only 7 days. Optily is the only single-click ad spend optimization software achieving better ROAS in one simple click.
