Google Product Listing Ad performance relative to text ads is currently different on mobile than on desktop. The new Purchases on Google and Expandable Shopping Ads features may help to close the gap.
Today we are pleased to announce the release of Merkle|RKG’s Q2 2015 Digital Marketing Report for download. The report offers data and analyses to highlight trends across paid search, search engine optimization, display ads, comparison shopping engines, and other areas of digital marketing.
Based on Merkle|RKG data, it seems more likely that the CSE space will condense down to a handful of powerful engines that will continue evolving to compete with Product Listing Ads. This has already started to happen, with Pronto ceasing direct feed operations last year, Facebook purchasing TheFind, and the recent acquisitions of Become and PriceGrabber by Connexity.
Google announced a number of changes to the specifications of their feeds for Shopping Campaigns. Here’s our rundown on what you need to know about them.
Google has confirmed long-standing reports that it will deploy a “buy button” for Google Shopping results on phones. What will it mean for advertisers?
Google recently added the capability to upload Online Product Inventory Update Feeds (OPIU Feeds) to the Google Merchant Center via ftp transfer. This is a great new tool that advertisers should take advantage of.
In recent years, Pricegrabber and the eBay Commerce Network have moved away from the traditional rate card system, allowing advertisers to submit bids of any amount for their products. The setup on each engine is slightly different but the idea is the same: let advertisers bid each product based on its predicted value.
We are excited today to announce the release of Merkle|RKG’ s Q1 2015 Digital Marketing Report. Now available for download, this quarter’s report offers data and analyses on the latest trends across paid search, product listing ads, search engine optimization, display advertising and other topics surrounding digital marketing.
