Disapproved Ads Google PLA

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Google has started to disapprove PLA ads and reason for that it says 'missing micro data for condition'. Resulting decrease in our Revenue. Previously I just added schema tags of 'Price' on product detail page.

Can anyone let me know that is the schema tag which I have implemented has something to do with this.

Should I remove this tag or what do to as our sales is falling down.

 

Thanks,

Hello Ali,

I highly doubt you are getting your Ads disaspproved, because adding micro data to your website is just recommendation, not it is not mandatory.

Can you make a screeshot of that specific error in Google Merchant Center?

many multiple issues can trigger a single disapproval.

a minor note --

if microdata has not been (properly) implemented on the website then, the
automated-item-updates feature may be disabled in the account settings,
since the feature is optional.

however, the price, currency, and physical availability information
must match the submitted data and the landing-page, at all times --

if the automated-item-updates feature is enabled in the account then, the
microdata must be properly implemented on the website and must match the
submitted and landing-page displayed data, at the time the feed is submitted
or, is otherwise a policy violation and can trigger a disapproval or suspension.

Hi Alex,

 

Screen is attached. I am guessing (not sure) that Google is disapproving ads because of previously Schema Tags (Price Range).

 

Please let me know your thoughts. 

 

Thanks,

I'm pretty sure now that your products are more likely blocked because of: images cannot be crawled because of robots.txt restriction error instead of microdata error.

If you go to diagnostics/items you should see what is error and your products are not showing because of this and what is just warnings or recommendations and therefore these do not cause disapproval of your item.

Yes, for that we have updated our robots (week ago) tested by Google Webmaster Tool which allowed those particular URLs but still the issue is not resolved.


All images are under media/catalog.

Let me know your thoughts on Robots whether it is blocking image URLs or not.

Thanks

Other than micro data it is disapproving due to 'images cannot crawled by robots restriction;.

For that we have updated our robots (week ago) tested by Google Webmaster Tool which allowed those particular URLs but still the issue is not resolved.


All images are under media/catalog.

Let me know your thoughts on Robots whether it is blocking image URLs or not.
