Google has updated Hotel Ads to make it easier for potential customers to make bookings and improve the overall hotel search experience. This marks a move away from Google Hotel Finder which will be fulfilled by Hotels Ads, allowing hotels access to advertise and sell directly through Google, and, in turn, increase their brand’s visibility on the most popular search engine.

As consumers, we’ve come to love online shopping; it’s allowed us to access new products and trends on the go, purchase them with just a few clicks and then have them delivered straight to our home or office the very next day.

However, there is a small problem… only 7% of all purchases in the US are made online!

The Internet has disrupted international business by removing boundaries and advancing opportunities to reach new customers. The OC&C Global Retail e-mpire Report estimates that cross-border online trade for 6 of the biggest eCommerce markets (UK, US, Germany, the Nordics, the Netherlands, and France) will grow from $25B in 2013 to $130B in 2020.

For the second time in a month, we’ve seen Google update its core algorithm without making any official announcements. The first tweak, which was nicknamed the ‘quality update’ or ‘phantom update’, marked a change in how Google assesses content quality, whereas the most recent update (which went live on the 18th June 2015) has been dubbed as the ‘newsworthy’ update, or even the ‘news-wave’ update in some circles.
