Pay Per Click

Much discussion in PPC during 2013 was about Google’s new Product Listing Ads: how marketing budgets would respond, would the new PLAs dominate PPC and so on.

The conversation is still rolling along, and marketers and retailers have settle into a ‘Let’s wait and see’ attitude regarding the fallout of shopping’s new structure.
