As part of its big Google Marketing Live event this week, the search engine announced a big makeover is coming to some shopping ads in the near future.
Initially limited to apparel-related shopping results, Google is revamping both online ads and organic listings to be more visually exciting and drive more engagement.
You can get a preview of what to expect below:
The revamp brings shopping ads more in-line with the more visual organic listings which have been rolling out since last year.
Google is accomplishing this using Search or Performance Max ad campaigns, though the images or graphics must be provided by advertisers.
As the company described the makeover:
“These will be clearly labeled as ads and will be eligible to appear in dedicated ad slots throughout the page. We’re also rolling out new ways to showcase multiple product images within Shopping ads in the U.S., along with information such as product descriptions, reviews, and product availability, with no further action required of advertisers.”
Though it is unclear when this revamp will be rolled out, advertisers should be excited by the more stylish and engaging presentation when it arrives.
