Google Shopping opening-up
This week, Google rolls out a big change in the Shopping section, first out being the home market USA. The move comes amid the coronavirus crisis. With the change, the Google Shopping tab results will consist primarily of free product listings. The rollout will start this week in the USA, whilst it should be available in all countries before the end of the year. According to experts, the change is being made to curb Amazon’s dominance that Amazon has in the US as a marketplace. We are prepared for the change and are shortly introducing you to what you can already do now.
What is changing and what does that imply for our advertisers?
In the main, there will be placements that are completely free of charge for advertisers but paid placements will still exist. The direct search results will still consist of purchased results, but listing in the Google Shopping tab will be completely free. The change only applies to the Shopping tab and all other Google Ads are not affected by this change.
