3.Long titles

For error 1 and 2, as per given in Google doc i.e 'https://support.google.com/merchants/answer/6069143?hl=en' , I have added the script code for all products on product info page for my store 'http://test.avactis.net/coverallsale.com' .But still getting same errors.How can I avoid these errors ?

For error 3, some of the products cross the limit of 100 character, and i want to show same title so how can I avoid this error ?

Please help asap.

Thank you

automatic-item-updates have nothing to do with the feed per se.

automatic-item-updates is a (new) feature that augments
the feed by using the microdata on your website to refresh
a specific subset of inventory data between feed re-uploads.

if automatic-item-updates is enabled within the merchant-center
then be certain the microdata on your website, for all inventory
items, is proper, accurate, and up-to-date.

otherwise, simply disable automatic-item-updates within the
merchant-center -- and be certain the feed re-uploads keep
pace with any inventory changes and match the website data
exactly, at all times; then, any messages directly related to
the automatic-item-updates feature may be ignored.

as to the long titles, google no longer accepts items
that violate any character-length requirement --
for example, all titles that violate the policies must either
be corrected (shorted) or the item must be removed from

the submitted data (feed) altogether.

 

the title must simply name the physical item.

 

the description must simply describe the physical item or

describe how the physical product (item) might be used.

any mismatch whatsoever between the inventory data google has
and inventory data on the website or on-hand physical inventory
is a policy violation and grounds for item or feed disapproval or
a (permanent) suspension, at any time.
