Why This Matters Advertisers can not manage or enhance their

accounts without

appropriate access to Google Ads. Much more, Google Ads are still serving to users, but marketers can’t see or react to real-time performance. When marketing dollars are at stake, this is a huge problem for companies of any size. If you’re used to weekly reporting, that’s another job you won’t have the ability to do up until the

Google Ads issue is resolved. This blackout is inconvenient for Google after their layoff announcement of 12,000 employees on Friday.
