Will Big Retail Rule Paid Search On Black Friday, Cyber Monday Again This Year?
Here we go, just over a week until Black Friday and Cyber Monday. All hands are on deck, budgets are ready to be unleashed. The big box retailers appear poised to yet again dominate paid search results for queries related to these all-important retail days.
Over the last two years, the big box retailers have been squeezing coupon and deals sites out of paid search leader boards for “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday” queries, according to research from Adgooroo. In 2012, big retail dominated paid impressions for “Black Friday” search queries:
Target, WalMart, JC Penney, Kohls, Home Depot, Express and Macy’s are among the big brick and mortar stores advertising on “Black Friday” queries now. We’ll have to see if Blackfriday.dealighted.com ( shown in Google’s results) or any other deals sites be able to get back in the top 10 this year.
