Errors in Feed Corrected but Still Report as Erros

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

August 22 we added 40 or 50 new products to our feed.

August 23 nine of these products had incorrect (spelling) or missing feed data.

August 24 the nine errors were corrected.  That evening our feed would have upload as it does every evening.

August 26 two feed cycles later and the errors are still reporting.

 

How long does it take for the google system to catch-up and see that we have corrected these errors?

 

Thank you

Hi Steve/Joe
Once the feed is valid, it usually starts serving within the hour. It can take much longer for the interface to update this.

If your feed is valid and your ads are serving, then it shouldn't be much longer before the UI updates.

Hi Joe,
You can manually fetch your feed at ANY time. You don't have to wait for the feed to be automatically fetched according to your schedule. Just click on the fetch tab and do it right there and then.

Note that when you manually fetch the feed, it still takes time for Google to validate it. Your best bet would be to upload a test feed using the test feed upload option. This will give you immediate feedback as to the feed's validity. Once you get confirmation, fetch it "normally" using the fetch now option and you should be good to go.

Thanks Dave. We did run a test feed which validated. Yet when our regular feed uploaded the error messages did not go away. My question is "how long does it take for these errors to go away?". In other words, how long does it take for new validation to occur? It has been 2 days?

Thanks
Steve
