Welcome to another edition of the AdWords Community Weekly Wrap Up. 




Consumer Ratings: Do you wonder what customers are saying about your business? What if you could display what customers think about your business in your ad? Consumer Ratings Annotations do just that. Consumer Ratings Annotations highlight industry-specific ratings based on consumer surveys. Up to three of your best ratings show below the text of your search ads, along with a link to more ratings. These annotations—which need no setup—help drive website traffic with the power of consumer opinion.


Community Categories: Have you noticed the changes in the community? We are so proud to introduce a new look to our community categories. You'll find a few "oldies but goodies" and also a few fresh newcomers. How do you like the changes? Let us know in the comments. 


Shopping Community MigrationWe opened a new section for Google Shopping and Merchant Center questions in the AdWords Community. With this new category in the AdWords Community, you’ll have a one-stop-shop for all of your questions about Shopping — everything from setting up your first data feed to creating a Shopping Campaign. 


Google Shopping APIsThis latest release introduces support for Shopping Campaigns, extensions to feed services, new reports, and more! We have also made most of the features previously marked as Beta available for everyone.

AdWords games are fun, engaging and informative. If you missed AdWords Trivia Game 2014: Round 4, be sure to follow along and test your own AdWords knowledge in this week's round of the game. 


Still have questions about Shopping Campaigns? We released a bunch of resources to help you get up to date on what a Shopping Campaign is and how you can implement them in your business. 


#AskAdWordsJoe and Alex answer your questions from social media in this episode of the Ask AdWords show. The guys answer questions about using remarketing segments, using negative keywords in Shopping Campaigns, and using managed ad placements that include subdomains.


Office Hours: Join Nicole, a Partner Education Manager for Shopping, and Kathleen, AdWords Online Specialist as they discuss how to manage and promote your products on Google Shopping and streamline how you bid and report on your PLAs using Shopping Campaigns.
