Clicking on these buttons shows more information about the product, overlaying the info over the search results as a lightbox popup. This offers searchers more information without taking them to another page. Twitter user Glenn Gabe tweeted what clicking on the “Stores” panel for a “Samsung Galaxy S9” search.
@glenngabe no idea if you saw these before? pic.twitter.com/y2SvIj7Kra— Dave Lorrez (E-tail) (@davelorrez) February 13, 2019
I’m pretty sure I’ve never seen that, and not triggering in a lightbox above the SERPs (for the various buttons). Looks new. Like this for “Stores”: pic.twitter.com/jSgnVXAOVY— Glenn Gabe (@glenngabe) February 14, 2019
Emily, our resident PPC expert said:
“Although still very early days, we have seen a small uplift in revenue across some of our retail clients.
This new PLA feature massively benefits the user by making online comparison shopping easier with all product prices available to compare in one place without the need to click through onto the advertiser’s site.
Therefore, customers that are influenced by price are likely to click on the cheapest option resulting in a loss of traffic to other brands.
On mobile, this takes up even more real estate with multiple tabs pushing the organic results further down.”.
