Google Merchant Center organic shopping results are not showing up in "shopping" tab

Hello, 

I recently setup a google merchant center feed & corresponding Google shopping ads for a client. We got the feed running with no errors, and made a basic ad to receive impressions in the 'shopping' tab of Google. 

However, our organic results don't seem to show up at all in Google shopping. Any idea how to get products to show up in the organic shopping results? Please and thanks!

Cheers, 

 

Sergei

there is no longer, any such concept as, organic-shopping results.

google-shopping results have not been free for quite some time;
all results within google-shopping are paid ads -- shopping-ads --

or sometimes text-ads near the bottom of the page.

payment to google is per click -- pay-per-click.

shopping-ads and google-shopping are now part of highly competitive,
dynamic, ad-auctions -- results in the auctions are based mainly on
(a) the bid and (b) quality related factors; only items with a high
enough bid and high enough quality, to win a slot in the auctions,
may be seen within results, as paid shopping-ads.

 

also, never use live-searches to verify if items are being seen --
the person performing live-searches must be in the same country

as the ad's targeted-county, to see any results, whatsoever,
and any live-searches can harm click-through-rates, causing
items to be removed from the auctions, never to be seen --
rather, use impression statistics, in the shopping-campaign,
to determine if items are being seen by others.

generally, if shopping-ad items are not being seen -- impressions are zero --
either (a) increase the bids under the shopping-campaign's product-groups,
or (b) improve the quality of the data and information on the website, that is

submitted to google, via the merchant-center-account.
