In-Search Ads is an ad format that will be served on the Listings Search Result Page (LSRP), in line with listings. The adverts are built in-house by Zoopla meaning no design cost for yourselves, and they're designed to fit a native template that matches with the look and feel of the Zoopla website.

In-Search Ads can be used to promote your brand and services to a targeted audience, and placed in-line with listings, ads show exactly where property seekers are focusing their attention.

Benefits of In-Search Ads

In-Search Ads brings with it a host of benefits for your brand. Using In-Search Ads, you can:

  • Maximise the visibility of your brand and services as the ad is positioned on the most visited page of the Zoopla website (on average, the Zoopla Listings Search Results Page is viewed 120M+ times each month). There are 5 slots available per page and this increased amount of creative space means there's plenty of opportunities for your ad to be showcased

  • Be in front of a highly attentive audience and promote yourselves smarter with greater targeting capabilities. As the ads display in-line with listings, ads show exactly where property seekers are focusing their attention

  • Save money as the engaging adverts are built in-house and managed by Zoopla, meaning no additional cost to you. It also brings a level of consistency as by using our native template, the ads match the look and feel of a listing on the Zoopla website, bringing higher user engagement thanks to a less disruptive ad experience

 Best practice

Once you've decided on your ad campaign objectives, think about the core area where your target buyers come from and use In-Search Ads to target areas relevant to your campaign

 Did you know...

You can combine the power of In-Search Ads with other portal enhancements:

  • When using In-Search Ads to promote your brand or services, Area Sponsorship will help maximise your reach further on the most visited page on Zoopla
  • When using In-Search Ads to promote your valuation services, Valuation Booster will help “close the loop” with prospect customers
  • AdReach will help extend your reach to high-intent buyers by pinpointing your ideal audience of property seekers, based on their onsite Zoopla behaviour and preferences

Ad assets

In order for us to build your adverts to your requirements and get them online quickly, we require certain creative assets to be submitted. These include:

  • An image (430px x 310px)
  • Your logo (146px x 72px)
  • A headline (maximum of 40 characters)
  • A description (body text, maximum of 65 characters)
  • Features (i.e. bullet points, maximum of 40 characters)
  • A call-to-action (maximum of 35 characters)

 Best practice

  • Use a high quality, eye catching property-based image that is relevant to your text and call-to-action. We've seen that images of the kitchen receive a higher number of search clicks
  • Add a catchy headline and an engaging call-to-action that is relevant to the ad text. Consider the language you use such as the use of action verbs and think about what you can offer property seekers (i.e. a free booklet, or services such as an instant valuation)
  • Stand out by using the description and features to differentiate yourself from other agencies by highlighting what makes you unique and showcasing any branch statistics
