May I use an exact taxonomy value in my product title?

Hi,

I just found the following in a top-contributor's post:

however, using such exact taxonomy values within a title or description violate the policies

Is this true? Is it not allowed to use category names in your product title/ description? I mean - the probability that this happens by coincidence is very high, isn't it?

Hi,

 

You should not have the title of your product be "Clothing > Women's > Pants > Jeans > Flare > Plus size" however you can use "Brand ABC Women's Plus Size Flare Jeans" as your title. If you stay away from using the exact nodes and keep it natural sounding then you will be alright. I would recommend reviewing how your competitors have structured their titles and descriptions. In all my years of Shopping Ads I have never had a product disapproved for using exact taxonomy values in the product title or description. @Celebird may be able to add more context as they are the quoted TC in your post.

 

Hope that helps!
