Shopping Sites can Kiss their Mobile Google Black Friday Traffic Goodbye

Google just announced a new richer shopping experience for this holiday season in Google Search results on mobile devices.

Google announced today to new features that enrich the experience of searching for deals on mobile devices. When consumers search for a specific product on their smartphone or tablet, Google shows an expandable product card with rich product content such as reviews and details for that item.

For example, on a query such as the Nexus 10, results will show the image of the product along with merchants who carry this tablet, detailed information on the product, and product reviews from customers. Additionally people can view images from multiple sources and explore products from any angle. Shoppers can now rotate selected products in 360 degrees to see them in more detail on mobile.

I have tried this on the iPhone, but so far the new features seem not to have been rolled out yet.

This is yet another move by Google to service consumers on cutting webmaster out of the picture. Google points out in the announcement of the new shopping features that retailers should check their AdWords account to make sure their products will be visible to smartphone shoppers this holiday season. 

This little advice also means that retailers will not make sales through mobile this Holiday season unless they advertise with Google.
