Shopping goes to home page

I see this picture in my Google Analytics. View attachment.



I do not understand it. Why traffic from shopping campaign goes to the homepage? I think traffics should go to the product pages. I check through Google Merchant products but there are links to the product. Any idea what this would explain? Where could be the problem?

thank you

Hello, Andrej.

The only time I found the same thing in a few accounts was when the product page was not working (or it was updated after submitting the feed) and the website was programmed in such a way as to redirect to the home page (with or without a 404 header being sent).

Please check that the product links in your feed are still working and that the product pages are correctly rendered and do not redirect.

Hope it helps.
