Amazon Resumes Purchasing Google Shopping Ads

less than a month after pausing all Google PLA campaigns, Amazon reactivates its bidding on Google’s Shopping Ads


Well that was fast.

Merkle Associate Manager Robbie Schnizler first noticed the e-commerce giant’s renewed presence in Shopping results this morning, and below is a screenshot taken this afternoon.

It’s too early to quantify Amazon’s presence in auctions at this point as it takes a couple of days for data to populate in Google Auction Insights reports, which provide impression share data for AdWords advertisers and their competitors. We should have a better sense for how expansive its reentry is this weekend.
