What is Google Shopping?
Google Shopping is a Google service that allows people to search and compare prices for products they might be interested in buying.
They can compare and shop for physical products across a wide selection of retailers who have paid to see their products displayed.
Google Shopping displays these results as a thumbnail that shows the image or the product, pricing, and shipping estimation (If your broker knows your location).
Unlike more traditional Paid Ads, Google Shopping requires you to upload a product feed directly from your website that enables them to crawl all your products and start showing them for relevant searches.
How does Google Shopping work?
When you search for a term that is closely related with buying a product, Google may choose to show you some relevant products you can buy.
In most cases, Google will display these results in the right sidebar (Usually reserved for the Knowledge graph results)
In addition to displaying prime of place here, Google Shopping results are also displayed in their own ‘tab’ at the top of the search which will display all Google Shopping products:
Google Shopping has many advantages, and many reasons it converts so well:
- Google Shopping adds a visual touch to an otherwise text-heavy searching and shopping experience.
- Google Shopping allows you to show up multiple times in Google SERPs — as a website result, a text-only PPC result, and a Shopping result.
- Google Shopping is proven to have 30% higher conversion rates than text ads.
