In June we reported that Google will be launching new map pins for advertisers. These pins are squares and they are called “promoted pins.” Andy Simpson spotted one in the wild but supposedly they have been live prior, I just have not seen them.

Google has added a bunch of features to Google Ads and Shopping right before the holiday shopping season. Features like price tracking, price comparison and other features around shoppings getting a good price on what they want to buy. Plus, features for advertisers to highlight promotions, sales and insights.
