Guidelines

Follow these guidelines to make sure you submit high-quality data for your products.

Minimum requirements

These are the requirements you'll need to meet to upload data for your products. If you don't follow these requirements, we'll disapprove this attribute and let you know in the Diagnostics page of your Manufacturer Center account.

  • Submit at least one showcase feature or media gallery. Learn more about rich content data format
  • If your content includes headlines, they must be unique; do not repeat feature headlines or text. 
  • For showcase features, do not replicate the headline as the text.
  • For images, use a URL that points to an image in a supported file format.
  • Make sure your URL can be crawled by Google. For example, ensure your robots.txt file is configured correctly. Learn more about robots.txt files

Best practices

These are best practices that can help you go beyond the basic requirements to optimize your product data for performance. 

  • Do not add manufacturer- or merchant-specific details, such as links, phone numbers, company information or promotional text.
  • 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. Learn more about Search Console
  • 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.
