Thread: Can't find my items on Google Shopping ?!

    Just a guess here... but maybe eBid.net has a daily Google Shopping budget? They set a daily spend max and once that max is hit, the ads disappear?

    No this isn't the case, please see Gazza's post from the 2nd February below. It's now the 16th and it's no better.

    The main problems stem from the need for product attributes (sizes, colours etc) and are becoming more and more strict over recent months and are being brought to our attention by Google more often with parent account wide consequences instead of previous sub-account interruptions. Our data feeds to Google Shopping have been tweaked almost daily for the last few weeks but have improved to a point where we should hopefully regain our constant 24 hour presence from the beginning of next week. There has been a couple of hours here and there of late that have seen our items removed from GS only to be returned a little later.

    On top of this I can report that we have started a trial of Bing Shopping and have started a feed to Bing US and Bing UK of eBid items. This is still in its infancy and the traffic difference between Google and Bing will mean the clickthroughs to your items from Bing will be less. We'll be adding more details in our upcoming newsletter.

    The listings have gone again.

    I don't know what Gazza means by Bing shopping ? I went to have a look over there and found this.
    https://searchengineland.com/bing-sa...uct-ads-170524 So Bing shopping no longer exists.

    Then I found this
    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...0255670?auth=1so Bing Product Search no longer exists either.

    I tried searching over there for an item that I have plenty of and the two 'big' sites appeared at the top of page one. eBid appeared about half way down on page two ! It didn't bring up any individual listings.

    Maybe it would be better to spend the money on bringing in an expert that can solve this Google Shopping problem instead as nothing seems to be improving ?

    TBH Becky, I'm one that would rather have eBid put up the FVF to 3% and allow ALL members to have their items show on GS rather than this 1 minimum selling price. Why? Because the buyers in most areas are non-existent and if ALL items showed on GS it would give us ALL a chance of sales.

    I say this in the hope that eBid get the problem sorted first.

    They seem to be O.K. during the day but disappear at prime shopping time in the evenings. I checked just before 9.00pm this evening and there wasn't an eBid listing in sight but just checked again and they are back now. It's soooo annoying, I just wish they could figure out how to fix it or get an expert in that knows the workings of Google !

    Have you changed your user name again Lisa ? Lol, I can't keep up with you !

    Hopefully that gets fixed

    Yes, final change now ! Loved my previous name but had some issues with another company name so had to rebrand and move on. Divorce, deaths, business partnership breakdowns, trademarks, rebrands ... time to get selling now lol

    Well good luck after all that. We might be able to sell more if only this problem would get fixed !
