What is Google Shopping

It is a Google service created to help users:

  • Search for products.
  • Read information about product prices and features.
  • price comparison.
  • Communicate with the right seller to make purchases.

Google Local Shopping

Google Local Shopping is defined as the platform that shows your products to shoppers near your area who use Google search. When a shopper clicks on your product ad on Google, it takes them to a page designed for your store. Shoppers who land on this page can see details about your product and how you do business.

Google Local Shopping helps show your products to shoppers. It also helps you measure the effectiveness of your ads on both online and offline sales.

How it works?

Google Shopping works through a file processing algorithm known as a product feed. Sellers send a file containing a summary of the product online to Google. The file contains all the store's product details such as product titles, descriptions, images, and price.

Google matches product details to user queries to create ads. The Google user then sees the Shopping Ads for the displayed search queries. If the user finds that they need it, they will click on the ad and then be directed to the website or store.

Because product details come from the original source (the seller), Google can show current prices and product availability.

And if you're the one selling, the person who clicked your ad will be directed to your online store to either make purchases or check for more products.
