Included destination [included_destination]

Use the included destination [included_destination] attribute (in addition to the excluded destination [excluded_destination] attribute) to control where your products will appear.

When to use

  • Optional for each product

If you want to add your product to participate in certain locations (beyond what you specified in your feed settings), use the included destination [included_destination] attribute.

These are the supported values for this attribute:

Note: Some of the names for product destinations have been updated. You may have previously submitted the following values as destinations for your products: Shopping Actions, Surfaces across Google, Local surfaces across Google. These values will still be accepted, but we recommend that you update your products to include the new values for these destinations: Buy_on_Google_listings, Free_listings, Free_local_listings.
