DS and AdWords product count may not match

DoubleClick Search (DS) and AdWords may not always match when reporting the number of products in a product group. Both DS and AdWords periodically check with Google Merchant Center for this number, but they don't necessarily check at the same time. It's possible that the number of products changes from the time that DS checks with Google Merchant Center to the time that AdWords checks.

Regardless of the number reported by DS, AdWords generates ads for products based on the information it has most recently received from Google Merchant Center.
