Hi,

Hopefully, you will be able to help me.I have an Etsy shop and pay for Google Shopping through them. There are a few days a week that none of my items show up in Shopping. I contacted Etsy and they were not much of help.

 

Thank you,

Adriana

shopping-ads and google-shopping are part
of a highly competitive, dynamic, auction.

an item must win a slot in the auctions to be seen.

outcomes in the auctions are determined
primarily by the bid and quality factors.

if items do not show, or do not show for a time, that typically means
that the budget for the auctions has been exhausted, the ad-targeting
or ad-scheduling have been changed, or other merchants have changed
their targeting or scheduling, or improved their quality, or increased
their bids or budgets, with respect to the auctions.

 

also, be certain that the same or similar physical inventory items
are not being submitted to google as shopping-ads, from any other
website or venue; that may necessarily cause items to self-compete
and dilute or remove their chances of winning in the auctions --
in addition to potentially triggering a policy-flag, at any time.

importantly perhaps, searching for the same items over and over again,
without any positive actions, can harm click-through-rates within the
auctions and indicate to google that there is no interest in those items --
google may then simply remove those items from those auctions and

those items will no longer be seen.

the best way to determine if other people are seeing an ad/item
is to carefully inspect the impression statistics for the items in
the auctions, within the ad-account -- never by direct searches.
