What are Google Shopping Ads For Ecommerce?

Google Shopping ads (formerly Product Listing Ads) are a type of ad campaign that allows you to promote your store’s products directly in the search results. Shopping ads are an extremely powerful tool for retailers as it allows your products to be shown to customers when they’re searching Google for keywords related to your inventory. There are many benefits of Google Shopping ads including:

Visual: Compared to traditional text ads, Google Shopping ads are much more visual. Your product’s image, price, product rating and more can appear directly in the search results.

Transactional: Shopping ads are highly transactional in nature. Your products have the ability to appear when customers are searching for terms that indicate they might be interested in making a product purchase.

Product Insights: With Shopping ads, you can get powerful insights about how customers are interacting with your products. Retailers can see insights about product groups or individual SKUs and compare against benchmark data.
