linking to adwords

I have inserted quite a few "Best Price" Links on our website so customers can click the link and see what other shops are selling the same product and at what price etc.

 

I cant see anything wrong with this but I am no expert on Google shopping policy etc. and wondered if anyone thinks this is a good or bad idea. 

 

Google Shopping is showing all our products but Organic search results have now gone.  which is the main worry.

 

I have no messages or issues when I check webmaster tools.  

 

Any advice most welcome.

(1) the item's price -- submitted to google, displayed on the website's

link landing-page, and charged to the customer, must all be identical

and must all include vat.

(2) generally, only one, single, price and item should be displayed on the page --
however, if multiple prices or items are on the page then (a) the price of the

submitted item must be the most prominent on the page and (b) it must be

straightforward for the user to find the correct item and corresponding price.


google is the final arbiter of prominent and straightforward.

(3) any promotional text (e.g. best price/cheaper) anyplace within

submitted (feed) data is not allowed -- submitted data must simply

describe the physical item or how the physical item might be used.

violations may result in lower quality and poorer performance
in the auctions, disapproval of individual listings or the entire

website, or suspension from the program -- at any time.

 

(4) ads are independent of organic search.

 

organic search issues are usually best addressed in the webmasters forums --
