How to turn off automated ad extensions

It’s sneakily hidden away, but you can find and turn off automated ad extensions. Here’s how:

Start by ensuring you’re at the account level rather than within a single campaign

Head down to ‘Ads & Extensions’

Click on ‘Automated Extensions’

Now hidden away on the top right you’ll see a link ‘Advanced Options’

You can then (one by one) turn off automated extensions as you wish.

Google asks for a reason for turning off the automated extensions. 

Easy as that!
