These product-based ads are important for retailers because they:

  • Feature products at the top of Google’s search engine results page, even before organic listings for some keywords.
  • Include visuals of the product.
  • Can include additional information that boosts engagement, such as prices, reviews, and special promotions.
  • Can support upper funnel awareness initiatives as well as drive lower funnel conversions.
