#Launch: Google to launch program in India to connect offline retail inventory with search engine

If yes, you will love the new pilot program by Google.
Google has started testing a pilot program which will see brick and mortar companies sell their products on the search engine itself! Once the platform is up and running, you should be able to list the products available in your store as well as their prices in real-time for potential customers to buy.
What is the range of features that you can expect from this new platform?

Traffic is everything for your business. Nobody wants a 50% loss in traffic any day!
Imagine that your site loses half of its traffic. As a natural reaction, you will try to figure out what could have gone wrong. In the process, you discover that there are more than 500 links to your site from just two domains. Empty domains!
Such was the plight of a publisher a few days ago. Could these mysterious links be the cause of the huge dip in traffic on the publisher’s site? Google had a lot to say about this.
PS: It may not be what you expect.
