Why use ad extensions?

Keep in mind that Google values the good content. To determine how ads are displayed at the time the user responds to the search query, Google chooses to display the ads with the highest quality first. The more relevant your ad is to Google, the better the position of your ad will be. Also, your costs will be lower. In this sense, ad extensions display additional information to the user in order to generate qualified traffic on the page and the site. 

Enriched, the ad is therefore more visible and more easily distinguishable from those of your competitors. The ad extensions therefore allow you to boost your CTR. Good to know: the ad extension does not imply any additional costs. One click on the extension is equivalent to one click on the ad.
