shopping-ads are part of a highly competitive ad-auction --
only items with enough quality and high enough bid, to win
a slot in the auctions, may be seen, as a shopping-ad.


the items seen on google-shopping are paid shopping-ads,
that have won a slot in the auctions, based on the bid and
quality related factors -- payment to google is per-click.

approved items must match a product-group within the shopping-ad
and be assigned a competitive bid to compete within the auctions.

importantly perhaps, all items must be re-submitted,

at least monthly -- otherwise all items will expire,

naturally, and will be removed, automatically,

from the auctions.

also, always use impression statistics to determine if
items are being seen by others -- never live searches.

otherwise, this is mainly a peer-to-peer forum --
forum-members cannot look into any accounts or
any submitted data -- posting more specific details,
here in the public-forums may allow others to offer
more specific suggestions.

otherwise, google may be contacted for account-specific guidance --

Shopping ads use your existing Merchant Center product data -- not keywords -- to decide how and where to show your ads. The product data you submit through Merchant Center contains details about the products you sell. Google uses these details when we match a user's search to your ads, making sure to show the most relevant products.


Apart from title, ads depend on your quality and bid factors.
