I have recently created Google merchant account and submitted data feed. My products are still under review. How many days will it take to approve my products?

a review may take three business-days or so.

google may review all submitted data, the registered data-feed file,

all settings within the account,  all submitted items, landing-pages,

website, physical items,  physical stock inventory, business details,

and the business model.

most (delays in) awaiting-reviews are usually triggered by a few issues; e.g.
(a) a potential policy violation of an item, feed, website, or type of item;
(b) submitted data not adhering to the rules or policies of a target-country;
(c) a recently registered feed or a feed with unreported (syntax) errors;
(d) a feed that has not been updated with respect to the most recent policies;
(e) certain (feed) data updates -- such as a new product or any id update;
(f) a feed that has not been updated (re-uploaded) in over a month;
(g) id values not unique or that change per item across multiple feeds;
(h) a website or image that requires a recrawl or review or both;
(i) a merchant-center account not properly linked to the adwords-account;
(j) a review around weekends, holidays, or similar non-business days.

generally, under the merchant-center-account, check the the number of items
shown as processed under the data-feeds status, check the account, feed, and
items status under the the diagnostics-tab, check the account status under
the main dashboard, and the check the technical-details for individual items,
when clicking on the item's title under the products-tab, for any issues.


importantly, after the initial review, google may continue to review

all submitted data,  settings within the account,  submitted items,

landing-pages, the website, physical items,  physical inventory,

business details, and business model, on a semi-regular basis.

so, always check the dashboard, data-feeds tab, diagnostics-tab, products-tab,

and feed, images, and website, against all current requirements and policies,

before, during, and after any review -- on a regular basis.

otherwise, google may be contacted here --

Is there any minimum and maximum limit for adding products? After my products got approved, where can i see my products? Only in Google Shopping? Or in the first page of Google Results.. right side.. Sponsored Ads.. that shows with an Image for each product?

the registered data-feed may contain from 1 to about 100,000 items or so --
generally, use the same registered feed for all additions, changes, or deletions;

any missing item from the feed is considered a delete (items are tracked by id).

after receiving a searchable status, items must migrate
to the linked adwords account (product-groups) and be
assigned a bid before the items can enter the auctions.

items that have enough bid and quality, to win an auction,
may be seen as product-listing-ads (in addition to text-ads)
in their own box on google-search, on partner-websites,
or within google-shopping, in selected target-countries.

currently, google may or may not show a product image --
the format and display details of product-listing-ads are
at google's discretion and mainly depends on the context
and features selected by users.

I have a doubt regarding Keywords. Some of the keywords have very low search volume and high suggested bid price. How could it happen? I thinking low search volume keywords have low bid price? What type of keywords can generate sales or leads? Any help?



Thanks in Advance.
