Best practices

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

  • Submit this attribute for all apparel products. By submitting your product’s size system, you can help ensure that the size is shown correctly.
  • Submit the correct system for each product. If you have various products with different size systems, make sure to submit the correct size system. If you don’t submit a size system, Google will use the standard system for your target country, which might not be right for your product.
  • Submit the size. Along with the size system, make sure to submit the specific size of your product using the size [size] attribute.
  • Submit the size type if relevant. If your product also has a size type, submit the size type [size_type] attribute.
  • Submit the gender if relevant. To help show your product in the right search results, also submit the gender [gender] attribute.
