shopping-ads do not use keywords.

items show based on the bid and quality.

a physical, in stock, inventory item, may be submitted as a shopping-ad --
usually within the product-feed, using the merchant-center-account; the
data submitted typically matches the data displayed on the landing-page.

an item must have a high enough competitive bid and high
enough quality, to win a slot in the ad-auctions, to show.

quality is based mainly on the title and the quality of all other attributes
submitted, as well as other quality factors, including the quality of the

item's landing-page, website quality, relevancy, click-through-rates,

targeting details such as the target-country, etc.

only in stock, physical inventory, items may be submitted as a shopping-ad --
the in stock, product (feed) data, must be resubmitted at least monthly, or
whenever a critical change to the website or inventory-availability occurs.

title should name the physical item; description and other attributes submitted
should describe the exact physical inventory item, being sold and delivered --
such as the specific item's size or color, or some other aspect of the physical
item's characteristics, such as how the item looks, feels, smells, or tastes.

keyword-stuffing or general promotional information are not allowed.


to verify items are being seen, check the impression, click,

and search-term statistics, within the shopping-campaign.

to use keywords, there are many other campaign-types and ad-formats,
that may be a better fit, to advertise services or certain types of products.
