There’s no fixed number of ads that you need to have in an ad group. The bottom line is you need to build your campaigns to be logical and manageable. If you can do the following with the number of ads in your ad groups, then you’re doing it right.

1) You’re able to rotate your ads.

It is a good idea not to show the same ad to the same customer every single time. Remember, there is a reason why they didn’t convert the first time.

2) You can perform A/B testing on your ads.

Having multiple ads in the same ad group allows for Google to display various ads, and therefore find the best performing one.

3) You can use keyword variations.

You should create different ads that are similar, but use a different variation of a keyword. You can create different ad types. You can have image ads, dynamic search ads, display ads.
