What is a Google Shopping Ad?
Google Shopping Ads (previously known as Product Listing Ads) are one of the ways of advertising products on Google. Google Shopping Ad consists of an image with title, short description, price and reviews. These are the small photos visible on the top of Google search results, tagged as sponsored. See below an example of such results.
Google Shopping Ads are created with two platforms – Google Ads and Google Merchant Center. The list of advertised products must be uploaded into Google Merchant Center account. Then this account has to be connected with the Google Ads account. Finally, a shop owner can create a Google Shopping campaign in Google Ads account. All the necessary information about products is sourced from the Google Merchant Center.
The feature characteristic of this kind of advertisement is that Google decides if and where should the ad be placed in Google search results. The outcome depends on the bid, the ad itself and the quality of a landing page. Additionally, ads are charged for clicks, and not the impressions.
What is WooCommerce?
WooCommerce is an open-source platform for online businesses. It works as a plugin for WordPress based websites. Currently, it’s one of the most popular solutions for e-commerce stores. Partially because WordPress hosts a significant share of websites worldwide, but also because WooCommerce itself is very easy to use and highly accessible.
With WooCommerce, shop owners can freely customize the store and adapt it to their needs. Additionally, it is compatible with other WordPress plugins and extensions, so it’s extremely convenient for retailers who already have a website and just want to build a shop.
The platform has no limitations with regards to a number of users and products but also countries to work in.
