Customer Match allows advertisers to build remarketing lists based on their customers’ email addresses. Where Google has a database match for that email address, customers will then see remarketing ads on Google search, Gmail and YouTube. Lists must be first party, and have to include at least 1,000 matching email addresses.

This revision will be of particular interest to advertisers wanting to retarget customers with seasonal promotions.
