TikTok is preparing to launch its own search ads platform, which will allow advertisers to bid on specific keywords and phrases related to their products or services.

Key takeaways

  • By entering the search ads market, TikTok is looking to capitalize on this growth and provide a new advertising platform for businesses looking to reach younger, more engaged audiences;
  • Studies suggest almost 40% of young people searching for a lunch spot would do so on TikTok or Instagram rather than Google Maps or Search;
  • TikTok’s ad platform is likely to offer more robust audience targeting options than Google does, allowing advertisers to reach users based on their interests, behaviors, and demographics.
