Review Feed - Can we do product groups?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Greetings,

 

I was wondering if anyone has done product groups for the review feed? I know for quality the review feed is looking for and MPN and Brand for the review to be considered to have a "Strong ID" but all of our reviews are tied into product groups. We are a manufacture and make around 50 different sizes for one product, on our site we have the reviews displayed at the bottom of the page for the product group.

 

Will the reviews get approved without a strong ID?

 

Any ideas on the best way to group reviews based on a product group instead of individual size variant MPN and Brand?

 

I think that I may be trying to do something that is not yet supported by the merchant center product reviews.

 

Thank you for reading,

Brandon

google's published matching-criteria mainly refers to matching the
shopping-ad to the proper product-review data, so that the proper
product-rating appears on a shopping-ad -- not for on-page reviews.

generally, google supports groups-of-reviews mapped to a single product-page,
or a single-review mapped to multiple product-pages, but not a review mapped
to groups-of-products on a page -- the general requirement is only one, single,

physical inventory item, on a page, with a single buy-button, one single price,

and that product's reviews.

importantly perhaps, a business that does not directly sell products to
users, on-line, are typically not eligible for the product-ratings-program --
product-ratings is mainly a supportive program to help merchants who
are currently using paid shopping-ads.

that said, this is mainly a peer-to-peer forum --
google may be contacted directly for guidance:

Thanks for your response Celebird.

 

We do sell directly online and have had some great success with Google Shopping. Depending on what a user searches it even shows all our variants in a drop down menu per product group.

 

I'm going to look into attaching more than one product variant MPN and Brand to a review and see how that goes. 

 

I will look into contacting google if that doesn't work, thank you for providing the link and for your response.
