- Make sure that grammar, capitalization, and punctuation are complete and consistent within headlines and text.
- Do not repeat the same image.
- Before submitting an image, test some of your image links using the Fetch as Google tool, which is available through Google Search Console. If you’re submitting a lot of new images, using this tool on a few links can help you detect issues before submitting images. Once you submit your image, it will be crawled within 3 days.

- If you need to change an image of an existing product, submit a new URL for the new image. When you submit a new URL, the image will be crawled within 3 days. Keep in mind that if you change the image, but keep the same URL, it might take up to 6 weeks to detect and then crawl the new image.
