There are a few books that we can't seem to list on google shopping. They are only seachable byt title and not isbn. I'm wondering if that is why our products are listing.

The titles are

The Canterbury Church Book and Desk Diary 2016 - 9781848257702

The Canterbury Church Book and Desk Diary 2016: Personal Organiser Edition - 9781848257719

generally, be certain that the gtin value is valid
with a valid check-digit -- and only digits have
been entered for the gtin attribute value.

if a spreadsheet is used, be certain that the format
of all cells containing gtin values are text or strings
or similar -- never numeric.

a valid gtin attribute and value are required for all media items (books).

however, items are not guaranteed to show for any specific search-term;
items show based on bid factors and many quality factors related to the
business and all attributes and all data submitted -- not just title.

try checking the processed item by clicking on the item's
title within the products-tab to verify that a valid gtin
attribute and value have been properly processed --

also, check the diagnostics-tab blue-boxes for any

new issues; also, be certain that the product has a

searchable status in the merchant-center and matches

an active shopping-campaign's product-group with a bid.


if this is a new item google may sometimes take 24-72 hours

or so before being indexed for the product-listing-ads auctions.


however, forum members cannot look into feed data or accounts --
but a support specialist may be contacted directly for guidance.
