Believe it or not, Become.com nudges Google Shopping for 2nd place in highest conversion rate with 2.42%. BUT, don’t be fooled. Google Shopping still remains as the highest earner among its CSE peers.
Overall, the data tells us that traffic to Amazon Product Ads (NOT Marketplace listings, though it’s probably also high, too) is very qualified.
