Image quality

The resolution of your product images determines its quality. Google considers images with more than 1024 pixels as high-resolution images.

There are many ways to improve the quality of your images including:

  • Add robots meta tags max-image-size: large to your website. This tag will help Google use the highest-quality images from your website without any further action from your side.
  • Ensure that all the products available on your website are also listed in your Merchant Center account. Merchant Center can then automatically use higher-quality images, even if the ones you uploaded were of lower quality.
Note: In order to add more products directly to your Merchant Center account, go to the ‘All products’ page and click "Add products". Learn how to Quickly add or update your products directly in Merchant Center.
