As we mentioned earlier, Google is rapidly transitioning its shopping search functionality to an AdWords style listing system. Yes, it will mean you’ll have to spend money to get listed on Google product search, but you’ll also be able to add a wealth of product information to that feed, showcase your store, and will gain visibility to more data and pre-configured analysis than ever before.
To help with this migration Google is running a new promotion where store owners can get 10% off all ads through the end of the year if they create new listings by August 15th, 2012! Additionally, existing Product Search merchants can get a $100 AdWords credit simply by filling out a form by August 15th, 2012.
Google wants to compete against Amazon in the online e-commerce space and we highly recommend you get on board. Read more about the upcoming changes on the Google Shopping page and get selling!
