Google Shopping Feed 

In the rapidly evolving world of e-commerce, where competition is fierce, businesses must embrace various marketing channels to gain a competitive edge. One such channel is Google Shopping, a powerful platform that allows retailers to showcase their products directly in search results. However, to make the most of Google Shopping, it is crucial to optimize your product feed. This page delves into the significance of optimizing your product feed for Google Shopping and highlights some essential optimizations to maximize your success. Google Shopping feed optimization is something that most advertisers ignore. When Google Shopping first entered the market, impressive results were easily achievable. However, now it requires more effort to achieve the same level of success.

Google Shopping Feed Management

Enhanced Visibility

Optimizing your product feed ensures that your products are more visible to potential customers. Google Shopping relies heavily on product data provided in the feed to match search queries with relevant products. By carefully crafting your product feed, you can increase the chances of your products appearing in relevant searches, ultimately boosting your visibility and reach.

Improved Relevance

Relevance is key when it comes to Google Shopping. Optimizing your product feed allows you to provide accurate and detailed information about your products. This includes relevant keywords, comprehensive product descriptions, accurate categorization, and attributes such as brand, color, size, and more. The more relevant and comprehensive your product feed, the higher the likelihood of reaching the right audience and generating quality traffic.

Increased Click-Through Rates (CTR)

A well-optimized product feed can significantly impact your click-through rates. When users search for specific products, Google Shopping displays a range of options. By optimizing your product feed with compelling titles, high-quality images, and competitive pricing, you can entice users to click on your products over your competitors. This increased CTR not only drives more traffic to your website but also improves the overall conversion rate.

Enhanced User Experience

Optimizing your product feed leads to a better user experience. When users find accurate and relevant product information in Google Shopping, they are more likely to trust your brand and make a purchase. A well-optimized product feed ensures that customers have access to comprehensive details, making their shopping journey smoother and more satisfying.

Google Shopping Feed Optimisation

Google Shopping feed optimization can bring about two major benefits: increased exposure and improved campaign structure. The accuracy and amount of data you provide to Google can affect the ranking of your products, resulting in increased exposure. Your product feed serves as the foundation for your campaign structure. Without proper product types and custom labels, you cannot build an optimal campaign structure.

Improving the quality of your Google Shopping feed directly affects its relevancy, which in turn can lead to higher search rankings and increased exposure. While there is no visible “quality score” for your feed, the correlation between feed data accuracy and search performance is strong. It’s important to dedicate time to adding and updating values in your feed as frequently as possible to ensure optimal performance in the long run.

Most Important Feed Attributes

These attributes are either required or highly recommended for a successful Google Shopping feed submission.

































Recommended, if applicable.

For example, in the fashion industry.

















Accurate Product Titles

Craft clear and concise product titles that include relevant keywords and key product attributes. Use descriptive language to entice users and differentiate your products from competitors.

Product titles are the single most important area that you can optimize in your feed. There is a very simple reason for this: the keywords in your product title are a prominent factor in determining which search terms your products will appear for.
The most important aspects:

  • Add category and brand to product title.
  • Add size, material, and other specifics.

High-Quality Images

Use high-resolution, visually appealing images that showcase your products from multiple angles. This allows potential customers to visualize the product and increases the chances of them clicking through to your website. Most advertisers ignore Additional Image Link or at least put less effort into it: 

  • At least 250 x 250 pixels for apparel images
  • At least 100 x 100 pixels for non-apparel images
  • No image should be larger than 64 megapixels
  • No image file size should exceed 16MB

Comprehensive Product Descriptions

Provide detailed and accurate descriptions that highlight the key features, benefits, and specifications of your products. Use relevant keywords naturally and ensure the descriptions are free from errors or ambiguity. In recent years, the importance of creating accurate and detailed descriptions for your Shopping feed has significantly increased. While descriptions were once overlooked, they are now crucial in matching your products with relevant search queries.
The value of a description is all the long tail words that can be used to match the product with search queries.

Optimized Product Categorization

The reason for adding product types to your feed is to assist in the organization of your campaigns and analysis of their performance.
Our recommendation is to create levels of product types as follows: Level 1 > Level 2 > Level 3
Electronics > Cables > Lightning charging cables
This allows you to organize campaigns into “categories” and segment performance reports based on those categories. Later, when we talk about labels and TRUDA’s applied algorithms, you will see that analyzing products with High, Average, or No Revenue is done at the category level, so you can compare one Lightning charging cable with another, not with a TV or a phone.

A few tips:

  • Verify that products are in the right category: Some ecommerce platforms put products in multiple categories. Avoid this, and clean it up if necessary.
  • Clean up your product types: When dealing with duplicate or very similar product types, it is essential to combine them.
    Combine the plural and singular forms of the product type into a single term. For example, use “shoes” instead of “shoe” and “shoes.”
  • Identify common synonyms for product types and choose a single term to represent them. For instance, if you have both “dining tables” and “dinner tables,” pick one term to describe the entire range of products.

Structured Data Markup

Implement structured data markup, such as, to provide search engines with structured information about your products. This helps Google understand your product data better, leading to improved visibility and click-through rates.

Custom Label Optimization

Custom labels have no impact on how Google rates your feed. They are solely for you to better structure your campaigns, and analyze performance.
Custom labels can be used for two things: Structuring campaigns & Analyzing performance

Structuring campaigns means you can split your campaigns (or ad groups or product groups) based on a custom label across multiple brands, or product types.

Analyzing performance – Here is where the magic happens. TRUDA connects via API to digital marketing systems (such as Google Analytics, Google Ads, Google Merchant Center, Facebook Ads, or other platforms) and downloads information about the marketing costs associated with each product and the results achieved by them (data for the last 14/30/60/90 days). Then, it determines the importance of each product in the entire ecosystem. Essentially, it analyzes each product individually and the revenue generated by it, and then labels each product with relevant criteria for each specific business.

TRUDA custom labels are:

Revenue (High, Average, No Revenue)

Products that generated high and average revenue and products that did not generate any revenue.

Price Range

The price range that brings the highest contribution can be identified, and a separate campaign can be run on it, or the underperforming price segments can be eliminated.

Trending Products (Upward / Downward trend)

Products that are currently selling and did not sell in the past (or sold in very small quantities) / or sold in the past but are not selling currently.

Promoted GADS (super promoted / normal promoted / low promoted / not promoted)

Labeling products based on the number of clicks from the Google platform.

Promoted FBADS (super promoted / normal promoted / low promoted / not promoted)

Labeling products based on the number of clicks from the Facebook platform.

Promoted ALL (super promoted / normal promoted / low promoted / not promoted)

Labeling products based on the number of clicks from both the Google and Facebook platforms.

ROAS GADS (high ROAS / normal ROAS / low ROAS)

Labeling products based on the percentage of transactions or revenue associated with the Google Ads account you declare.

ROAS FBADS (high ROAS / normal ROAS / low ROAS)

Labeling products based on the percentage of transactions or revenue associated with the Facebook Ads account you declare.

ROAS ALL (high ROAS / normal ROAS / low ROAS)

Labeling products based on the percentage of transactions or revenue associated with both the Google Ads and Facebook Ads accounts you declare.

HERO / TOXIC Products

Labeling products based on value of generated revenue vs cost of advertising. HERO products are products that generate high revenue on a low cost of advertising. TOXIC products are products that generate very little or none at all revenue, while consuming a lot of advertising budget.

New products

Labeling products based on the date of its first appearence in the products feed.






Data cleaning

One thing that is frequently overlooked is cleaning the existing data in your feed.
Whether it’s the brand attribute being incorrect or five different ways of spelling the same category, there is always data to be cleaned.
Below are some of the most common examples of values that should be cleaned:

  • ID
  • Misspesllings
  • Wrong use of capitalization
  • Incorrect GTIN or MPN or added to the wrong attributes.
