Create rich product description pages

How it works

A product description page (PDP) teaches shoppers about your product's features and benefits before they complete their purchase. A rich PDP provides accurate and comprehensive product information.

This article explains how to create rich PDPs.

Benefits

  • Helps customers identify the product that best fits their needs
  • Provides customers with the information they need to feel confident in their purchase
  • Improves customer trust

Instructions

Step 1: Add product data to your Merchant or Manufacturer Center feeds

Google uses information from a variety of sources to display the best descriptions, imagery, and product details, and provide a unified and optimized product offering experience to the customer. This means we may not use the data you provide for some product listings.

Manufacturers and brand owners

If you’re a manufacturer or brand owner, you can sign up for Google Manufacturer Center, which allows manufacturers and brands to submit authoritative product data. This is then used to power commercial results across Google.

As a manufacturer or brand, Google trusts the data you share via Google Manufacturer Center to be the most accurate representation of a product. Google uses this information to help shoppers find and understand your products and to enrich the PDPs for your products.

You can share the following product data attributes in your Manufacturer Center feeds:

Step 2: Share your Product Ratings

Google Product Ratings gives retailers the ability to share and surface product ratings and product reviews.

If you participate in the Product Ratings program, you can share review data using a Google Product Ratings feed (learn more about Product Ratings). The attributes listed below may help you to create a rich product ratings feed, and will help us match your reviews to your PDPs:

Product data Product Ratings feed attribute  
Product rating <ratings> Required for all reviews
Review content <content> Required for all reviews
Review URL <review_url> Required for all reviews
Product URL <product_url> Required for all reviews

Product IDs

<gtins>

The reviews data from a Product Ratings feed is matched to products based on a number of factors, the strongest being globally unique product identifiers such as GTINs. Without GTIN data, Google will attempt to match a review through other information such as SKU, Brand + MPN pairs.

<mpns>

<skus>

<brands>

Reviewer images <reviewer_images>

It’s recommended that you include reviewer images when available.

Verified purchases

<collection_method>

It’s recommended that you indicate whether a review was post purchase (verified) or unsolicited.
