Impressions and ad pricing were both up across Ecommerce and Social channel ads, which typically reflects increasing value/intent from both consumers and advertisers. This is a subcategory of Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG).
FOOD & BEVERAGE

Impressions and ad pricing were both up across Ecommerce and Social channel ads, which typically reflects increasing value/intent from both consumers and advertisers. This is a subcategory of Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG).
HOUSEWARES & HOME FURNISHINGS

Housewares & Home Furnishings spending continues to look strong compared to it's 4-week average across channels, although the short-term trend in Ecommerce has flattened out. This is a subcategory of overall Shopping & Retail.
FINANCE

The volume of weekly search impressions in the finance category is double what it was eight weeks ago, and can be described as climbing steadily if you consider the spike in late April to be outlying behavior.
SHOPPING & RETAIL

Across all Shopping & Retail categories, spending is up in both the short- and medium-term. Social has seen the strongest growth, which makes sense considering that the channel has the most ground to "make up" since the initial drop in March.
SPECIALTY RETAILERS

Specialty Retailers—online or offline stores that focus on either a single or a small number of categories that aren't big enough for their own category—have seen short-term increases in spending and impressions. This is a subcategory of overall Shopping & Retail.
COMPUTERS & ELECTRONICS

In the Ecommerce channel, Computers & Electronics ads have grown in both the short-term and medium-term across Impressions, Spend and average Cost-per-click (CPC). This category includes both consumer electronics and personal electric devices, and is a subcategory of overall Shopping & Retail.
Travel
TRAVEL

Not only are we seeing greater volume in the Travel space as advertisers start to re-engage, but isolation-weary customers are clicking on paid search ads for travel at a higher rate as well.
