In-Market Audiences for Search was recently announced by Google and has now been released as part of their open beta. A feature prevalent in Display Advertising is now part of search marketer’s toolkit allowing for in-depth audience solutions.

So what are In-Market audiences?

To qualify someone as being in-market for a specific product or service, Google takes into account clicks on related ads and subsequent conversions, along with the content of the sites and pages they visit and the recency and frequency of the visits. In this way, Google accurately categorises users so you can target those most interested in your offerings. – Google
