Google Merchant Center Product Listing Ads campaign in Google AdWords.. WHAT A JOKE.. So it looks like there will be no more free listings available on Google Shopping and it will be a cost per click bidding system (Like Adwords) that will most likely amount to more than the average business would actually profit.. Essentially you the seller will be paying people just to window shop on your website store.. And you the buyer would most likely only be presented with large high street retailers.. "What's the point of using a search engine then, when we all know where to find these retailers" TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT GOOGLE ONE SAID.. "Because we do not charge merchants for inclusion in Froogle, our users can browse product categories or conduct product searches with confidence that the results we provide are relevant and unbiased." ~ Google IPO Filing, 2004
"Unbiased", how is having a cost per click system where the highest bidder get's the best listing or listed at all, unbiased.
Unfortunately it looks like Google has chosen money over consumer satisfaction and myself amongst many others will be severely affected.. So join this petition and feel free to express your views and how this will have a butterfly effect on all of us..
