Google AdWords launched around 18 years ago with the vision of making it easier for businesses to connect with customers online, allowing them to push their products in front of users on a simple search keyword.
Over the past 18 years, so much has changed. Mobile now accounts for a huge amount of web traffic, users perform deeper research to products prior to making a purchase and web users tend to quickly switch from keyword driven searches to watching videos, reading content and playing games. It allows for marketers to reach a wider audience and across many different devices. That is why Google have announced changes to their advertising products - Google Ads, Google Marketing Platform, and Google Ad Manager.

- Google AdWords is becoming Google Ads
- Doubleclick and Analytics 360 is becoming Google Marketing Platform
- DoubleClick for Publishers and DoubleClick Ad Exchange is becoming Google Ads Manager
