Google Product Ads: Great Results

Msg#: 4558926 posted 4:48 pm on Mar 27, 2013 (gmt 0)

So I finally invested in getting our product feeds up to the point where they are completely error free and also paying $59/month for a feed management software. We're currently submitting to Google/Shopzilla/Nextag.

Nextag and Shopzilla are a work in progress but there seems to be some promise there. With Google however, the results are excellent.

We only get about 10% of the clicks and conversions as we do with the normal PPC bidding, but our conversion cost is about $6 compared to PPC bidding of around $20+. And for people who complain that Google Product Ads used to be free, previously when I did have our feeds completely up to date, we got almost no traffic or conversions from Google Products.

used to be free

Now that product ads are no longer free, there's more legitimate competition and a lot less spam.

What does $7000 over the next 10 years buy you, and how much do you need to sell to cover that nut?

My cost-per-click for then new (paid) Google Shopping is around 2-cents per click. I can't imagine why $59/mo would be considered anything except highway robbery.

The $59/month is for feed management, not cpc. The feed management is handling the scheduled push with updates. Not really needed as this can be done yourself, but not really a large fee for the service IMO.

Amazon should not be ignored. I try to only include higher margins products in feeds, and modify descriptions for a deeper reach.
