Google Shopping

Help Potential Customers To Find, Compare & Purchase Your Products Online

What is Google Shopping?

Google Shopping is a service provided by Google to allow consumers to search, view and compare physical products for sale from retailers who have paid to advertise their products. This is also know as a Comparison Shopping Engine (CSE) Google Shopping Ads place your products in front of consumers at a time they are ready to purchase. Google Shopping is a visual format to attract customers, much like a shop window.

If you have ever bought a product online, and let's face it most of us have, then you will already be familiar with Google Shopping - even if you think you are not. The products which retailers sell though Google Shopping show up at the top of the search engine results page as well as under the 'shopping' tab.

For example, a search for 'white trainers' will first bring you to the sponsored ads for white trainers.

Selecting the shopping tab then takes you to the Google Shopping page where you can filter your search results depending on the product you are looking at. In our example we can filter 'white trainers' by price, size and change colour too.

If you are a business selling goods online and are not utilising comparison shopping engines such as Google Shopping, then you are missing out on potential sales!

To make use of Google Shopping you will need to use two platforms Google Adwords and Google Merchant Centre.

What is Google Adwords and Google Merchant Centre

Google Adwords is where you set up and run your shopping campaigns. You can control your budget, bids and settings such as targeted locations and ad scheduling. 

Google Merchant Centre is where the 'shopping feed' for your campaign will live along with the important attributes of the products for sale such as EAN, price, colour and ISBN.
