Show Title rather than Item ID

Our Google Adwords account currently shows our Item ID as 'woocommerce_gpf_13592' which makes it very difficult to do targeted ads based on each product, since the only way to show the product title is to hover over each one (which is extremely cumbersome), like so:

Is there anyway to change this so that the title shows instead? It seems to be a common problem and I understand that changing the Item ID # is bad. Do we have any options here?

Hi Kirsty,

 

Hopefully the Merchant Centre is soon rebuilt from scratch. It is very un-intuitive, and makes it hard to achieve what most people want to do - ie find products by title and give them an individual bid.

 

Google has hinted that a few months from now there will be some changes. I wouldn't be surprised if they offer a site scrape instead of feeds.
