hi,

 

How long it  takes to show new updated Product type in Adwords once feed is uploaded?. I was not happy with my my previous product type so updated it with new to include sub categories. I have done this yesterday and still the new product type is not reflecting. Any reason to why. I have tried the following still no sucess

  • Created new shopping campaign and checked.
  • waited for 24 hours +.
  • Checked if new product type are active in merchant centre and in live feed.

Thanks in advance

Hi

Are you getting "This target does not match any products in your Google Merchant Center feed." this message / or are you not getting any impressions?

If you are getting the message above then dont worry I have seen that message almost on all my accounts and still getting impression. Not entirely sure but seems like a bug to me.

Hope this helps

adwords may sometimes take 24-72 hours to show feed updates.

 

first, be certain the feed has processed with no errors.

then, be certain to check the individual values in the products-tab of

the merchant-center-account by clicking on the titles -- to be certain
that the information was entered, submitted, and processed properly.

product_type values should show no quotation-marks and each
taxonomy (category) value should be on a line by itself -- also,
be certain to use plain (ascii) text with no special characters
except for a plain ascii > to indicate the breadcrumbs; e.g.

after processing, the merchant-center should show two values as:
Beauty > Fragrance > Women
Beauty > Luxury Fragrances

 

the match within adwords must match the processed value, exactly --

including any spaces, special or proprietary characters, capitalization, etc;

that is why using plain (ascii) text and careful entering of all data is critical.

 

also, a does-not-match message within adwords does not necessarily

indicate that the data is not available -- if the message is seen, try

simply ignoring the message and check the results in the campaign.

Hi theniks,

I get this message "This product group does not contain any products." But this is because the product type has been changed on the feed and it started to reflect on the adwords.

My new products type are showing on shopping campaign now. So by the looks of it I think it takes about 72 hours to show the feed changes on shopping campaign.
