Welcoming Google Merchant Center to the AdWords Community[ Edited ]
March 2014 - last edited July 2014
Google Shopping and Google Merchant Center have become closely tied to Google AdWords over the past year. During this time, we’ve had separate forums for the Google Merchant Center and Google AdWords platforms. With two places to turn to for community support, we’ve heard from you that it’s not always clear where to ask questions about Google Shopping.
We want to make it easier for you to connect with other merchants in a single place and to quickly get answers to all of your questions. That’s why we’re excited to let you know that as of today, we’ll be opening up 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. If your question is specific to the Content API for Shopping, you can keep using the Content API forum.
With this change, we’ll be closing down the Merchant Center forum to new posts so you’ll have a single place to post all of your questions. We’ll keep the Merchant Center forum available for a short period of time in a read-only mode so you can search for old posts.
Additionally, two Top Contributors from the Merchant Center forum will be joining us as Top Contributors in the AdWords Community, and they’ll be a tremendous resource for Shopping-related questions. Join me in welcoming them, and feel free to jump into the new category with your questions!
