Search Engine Land Editor-in-Chief Ginny Marvin led a discussion on the ins and outs of Google Shopping.

She was joined by experts Kirk Williams, owner of ZATO Marketing, and Mike Ryan, product management lead at Smarter Ecommerce.

E-commerce has been booming during this time as physical retail locations are closed or providing limited services due to stay at home orders. This has presented new opportunities and challenges for e-commerce marketers. Google sped up its plans to introduce free listings in Google Shopping after eight years as an ads-only product. Audience insights reports reflected big changes in the competitive landscape as businesses dealt with the impact on supply chains and fulfillment logistics.
