Google goes Flash Free

I hope everyone here is no longer using flash for their Ads. If you are, do take note of the time line for removal of ads using flash from Google Ads.

– Starting June 30th, 2016, display ads built-in Flash can no longer be uploaded into AdWords and DoubleClick Digital Marketing.
– Starting January 2nd, 2017, display ads in the Flash format can no longer run on the Google Display Network or through DoubleClick.

Converting your flash to HTML5

Don’t be alarm or scramble to pay people to re-create your ads in HTML5, check out your ad under your ad table and see if it says “Flash and HTML5 Ad” instead of just “Flash image ad”, your ad has already been auto converted.

If it doesn’t, Google has provided a free tool that will allow you to create your new Ad in HTML5. Check out their Web Designer tool here.

It’s time for Flash to die.
