The 2013 Black Friday & Cyber Monday Google Shopping Report
We just released our first annual Black Friday & Cyber Monday Google Shopping Report, and our study yielded some interesting results.
In a nutshell, we randomly sampled a portion of our clients and looked at their overall store and Google Shopping performance over Thanksgiving weekend (11/28 – 12/2). What we found is that, on average:
- Google Shopping accounted for 20.19% of overall store traffic
- Google Shopping accounted for 18.75% of overall store revenue
Translation: Product Listing Ads are a significant traffic and revenue driver during peak shopping periods.
And it’s growing up fast.
Looking at the YOY performance numbers (compared with last Thanksgiving weekend, 11/22 – 11/26/12), Google Shopping was on average:
- Up 143.50% in traffic driven
- Up 238.22% in revenue generated
For both shoppers and retailers, Google Shopping is poised for some big things in 2014. Our study reaffirmed that Google Product Listing Ads will continue to be a huge contributor to overall store performance, especially during the traffic-heavy Q4 shopping season.
