To submit multiple destination that you would like to include, submit the attribute multiple times, once for each destination (recommended). For example:

Product Orthopedic dog bed
title XXL Orthopedic Dog Bed
included_destination Display ads
included_destination Shopping ads
included_destination Shopping Actions

You can also separate each destination with a comma ( , ):

Display ads,Shopping ads,Shopping Actions


To submit multiple destination to include for an XML feed, include a separate attribute for each included destination:

<g:included_destination>Display ads</g:included_destination>
<g:included_destination>Shopping ads</g:included_destination>
<g:included_destination>Shopping Actions</g:included_destination>

To format your data for Content API, see the Content API for Shopping.


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

  • If you submit conflicting information for the excluded_destination and included_destination attributes, the excluded_destination value will always take precedence over the included_destination value.
