Wait up to 3 days for image crawl to complete

Hi,

 
I'm having problem in the merchant center with items being disapproved.
In the Diagnostics page i have many items that are being disapproved with this error :  "Wait up to 3 days for image crawl to complete" .
When i use the content api get request i am receiving different response : 
"dataQualityIssues": [
{
"id": "item_group_duplicates_error",
"severity": "critical",
"timestamp": "2016-11-30T00:15:08Z",
"location": ""
},
{
"id": "item_group_varying_attr_error",
"severity": "critical",
"timestamp": "2016-11-30T00:15:08Z",
"location": ""
},
{
"id": "image_link_pending_crawl",
"severity": "critical",
"timestamp": "2016-11-28T11:41:58Z",
"location": "image link",
"valueProvided": "[link of image]"
}
 
So what exactly is the problem that makes the item disapprove ?
what is item_group_duplicates_error , item_group_varying_attr_error ?

Thanks,
Avi.

This can be due to many reasons, such as large images, many products, slow server response, busy period for google bot etc...

 

Currently there is nothing you can do about this, other than make sure your image sizes and data size is not too big. Try optimizing.

 

Hope it helps.

Thanks for your response.

One other thing that i think of and i want to know if it can be of a problem.
We have many items that uses the same image. We are selling diamonds and we are using the same
image url for all round diamonds.
So thousands of diamond (items) can have the same image url ... 

Can this be of a problem ?
 
Thanks
Avi.

Have not heard of this being an issue. But as you mention you have thousands of products for a type of product, than this most likely will be the reason of the delay.

 

Google's Shopping Bot needs to catch up and can't process all the data instantly.

 

Hope it helps.
