most flash sites are rather problematic and generally not allowed.

images hosted on a different website are allowed --
as long as the image (website) can be crawled by
both googlebot and googlebot-image and the
images conform to all image related policies.

Hi Tonny,

 

In order to advertise products on Google Shopping, your client need to have a Google Merchant Center account and the data feed available in that account will be used to showcase your client's products on Google.

Hi Pankaj,

Thanks for your answer, It wasn't the answer I was looking for. And I already know that.

What I need is a suggestion as to how to advertise a falshbased shop on Google Shopping, especially as the product images cannot be found on my clients website!! So would you host the images on a different site? Aand are there any repurcussions/violations in regard to Google Shopping Policies should you decide to do so?

Thanks again
