When to Use Dynamic Text Replacement on Unbounce

Unbounce’s dynamic text replacement feature can be used across your marketing campaigns; it’s not just limited to paid advertising.

Here are some examples of eligible campaigns:

  • Emails
  • Google ads
  • Bing ads
  • Facebook ads

How Unbounce Dynamic Text Replacement Works

The advertising term “message match” means that customers see the same landing page as the keyword they searched for.

In Unbounce, the dynamic text replacement gives you this feature.

To enable this feature when creating your advertising campaigns, you must set it up in both Unbounce and your ad platform.

On the ad platform, you’ll have to set up a URL parameter. Then, on your landing page, you can edit and assign a URL parameter for each version/edit of the page.

We’ll show you how to set this up below.

Integrating Google Ads with Unbounce Dynamic Text Replacement

As Google is one of the primary advertising platforms, we’ll walk you through how to set up and integrate your Google ads using dynamic text replacement.

  1. First, when you’re making your ads, you’ll need to set up your ad group and relevant keyword list.
    Click to learn more about ad groups and keywords.
  2. When the customer clicks on a campaign keyword, you’ll need to use Dynamic Keyword Insertion to update the text on your landing page.
    This will ensure that your ads have the keywords in your ad group showing.
    For more information: Keyword Insertion.
  3. Now, we need to understand the current URL structure:
Structure of Final URL in Google AdsDisplay URL Once Text Changes Dynamically & and in Browser
[landing page url]? [parameter] = {KeyWord: Default text}landing page url?parameter=value
supplygem.com?destination={KeyWord: Unbounce}supplygem.com?destination=Courses
  • Landing Page URL – The landing page to which you’re looking to add DTR (dynamic text replacement).
  • Parameter – The parameter you selected in Google ads when making the final URL.
  • KeyWord – The keyword the customer has searched and that you’ve selected to change to a DTR.
  • Value – What you’ve chosen to replace the keyword with based on their search.

You’ll also have to make sure that you have a default value set up if the keyword they’ve searched doesn’t match with any inputted value; the customer will see this default page in that event.
