Display Ad Attribute Not Recognized XML

Rising Star
# 1
Rising Star

I have created an attribute with the below value in a XML file, however for some reason it says, preferred is not a valid value. And also for the other values (blacklisted, regular)

 

<g:display_ads_recommendation_preference>Preferred</g:display_ads_recommendation_preference>

Anybody know what is wrong, or is this an error on Google's side?

Thank you for flagging this, Emmanuel! It turns out that this attribute was actually not meant to be mentioned on the Help Center because, as you said, it doesn't work. The team has updated that page so it should now be accurate.

Hi Emmanuel,

Are you still getting this error?

neither the api, nor any supported data-feed format, nor the debugger,
has recognized the display_ads_recommendation_preference attribute,
nor any of its defined values -- and likely still does not.

Hello CassieH, as Celebird mentioned too. It is still not recognized.

From the error report it says, the attribute is not recognized.

Hi Emmanuel,

I'm happy to pass feedback along if there's an issue. However, I don't see the display ads preference listed as an accepted value for the product feed, so I'm not sure if this was ever intended to be accepted by the system. Can you send me the link of where you found the attribute originally?

Thanks!
Cassie
