With Black Friday and the upcoming festive shopping season just around the corner, Google has added new search features to help shoppers to find deals.

If you’re a retailer, it’s worth being aware of these new features. Make sure you have all your structured data and product information in place in order to take advantage of all opportunities to increase your visibility on Google search.

Coupons and promotions

Google's new promotion badge will display in Search on items running a promotion. A new clipping coupon feature allows you to easily copy coupon codes, as commonly used on coupon sites. 

Here's what it looks like:

Promotional coupons.

The new features will roll out in the coming weeks.

Compare deals side-by-side

Google has made it easier to compare deals by giving a side-by-side view in Search.

Google says the feature will roll out later this month, in time for the holidays.

Price insights

The price insights feature makes it easier for shoppers to compare prices across different retailers for the same product, to see if something is good value. They’ll be able to see if a retailer’s price is low, high or typical for the product.

Prices

If you’re a retailer, it’s an extra incentive to keep pricing up to date and competitive for the product, or risk losing sales.

You can check how your deals are performing and review your promotions  wherever you manage your product listings.
