How comes the results of each adwords grouping?

hi all,


I came up with this question, I just start the google campain, and the grouping.


When I enter the adwords grouping, and click the validate, sometimes it shows no result, and sometimes, the number is too much less than what I have in my feed.


I want to know how is this happening? and How does google shopping count the result? doesn't rely on my data ? or what?


Thank you!

Hi Sonam, 


It sounds like you are trying to create AdGroups within a PLA campaign, is that correct?


Read this article for more information but essentially at the minute, we do not have the functionality to ensure that the Product ID is listed in your feed. However, the validation process is not required for PLAs to serve - this is just a indication that our system recognizes the product is listed in your feed.


Just make sure that your AdWords account is linked to your Merchant Center account, that your feed is optimized with detailed product descriptions and that you have an ad group with an active product target and you should be good to go. 


Let us know if you have any other questions,
