Dear Google

As someone that has technical knowledge of ad words etc I am having unbelievable error issues from the data feed scenario. I am simply trying to upload a data feed of which I have a website URL confirmed and claimed and this returns a different error each time i fix the previous. I have telephoned goggle in every UK center and they have told me to post this question here so could a product listing ads specialist please contact me to rectify this problem that is data feeds.

Regards
Chris

Hi Chris,

Thanks for posting again here. This is the community relating to the services you are enquiring about now.

Can you list the errors you are receiving?

If you are able to upload and have a DataFeed processed within Google Merchant Center, the only other required steps to set up a PLA Campaign is to link your AdWords account and set your CPC Bid and Maximum Daily Budget.

Shopping Campaigns take this one step further and allow you to create ad groups with the use of attributes.

At which stage are you experiencing the problems, is it on the upload of the DataFeed itself?

Hi Tom

I just received you message via the Google product forum. The problem
I have is that I am trying to get this data feed uploaded correctly
with a landing link to ebay and amazon ie not the website as it is not
used any more. The website url is verified and claimed and I have had
the data feed looked at and modified by a goggle ad words person but
yet it still returns with errors, would you be able to advise on this
as it would be greatly appreciated hence it is a problem with the actual upload of the feed.

Regards
Chris

Hi Chris,

The main problem I can see would involve you listing your items with two landing pages, both which you will be unable to verify, as you do not own the domain. Also, ebay and Amazon are both marketplaces, so would handle the upload of products for merchants, currently I am aware that eBay are utilizing PLA's but I do not believe Amazon is, However, for marketplaces, the individual merchant would be unable to list these once more as this would be grounds for disapproval for duplicate listing.

You say you have verified the URL? What URL have you verified? Your own site? The landing pages must match that of the domain you have registered in your settings.

Is there a reason you no longer list on your own site?

Hi Tom

It's mainly for an ebay landing page that I need the data feed and your saying that's it impossible to have such a landing page as ebay from my own merchant account as its not the same link as the website thats verified? Is there no alternatives to this what so ever? I see goggle products ads that direct to ebay pages when running a standard search so im trying to figure whats going on here as they are standard ebay sellers etc it appears. So the only option is to reinstate the website in order to have product listing ads running? Thank you Tom for advice and it is greatly appreciated.

Hi Chris

You're very welcome.

Unfortunately not. The URL you have registered within your settings needs to match that of the feed landing pages. If it doesn't then Google will not recognize the URL as valid to your settings. The reasoning to verifying the URL within your settings is to prove to Google you have all known rights to upload the products and own the domain these products are listed on. Any links provided within your datafeed that don't match will simply not process.

eBay do list on behalf of their sellers, so it is common to see a listing for eBay within results.

If you re-instate your website, you would be unable to list items within eBay and your website on Google Product Listing Ad's. For the same reason, duplicate listing.
