Google AdSense AFS Shopping Ads

Monetizing your e-commerce or shopping site can be difficult. Discover how your shopping site can make use of Google’s little known Shopping Ads program in order to monetize your site beyond the shopping cart and affiliate income.

Most small and medium sized shopping sites exclusively focus on selling their own shop inventory. Monetization is limited to direct earnings from product sales that occur on your website. Some publishers will also create affiliate product partnerships in order to sell or promote products from other vendors, earning additional revenue. Beyond those two main methods of shopping site monetization, the only other major source of income is running ads from one of the large Ad Networks, which for most publishers means displaying ads from Google’s AdSense or Google’s Ad Manager platform.

What if you could significantly boost your e-commerce website revenue by displaying contextual shopping ads that perfectly match your website visitors search query?
