The lastest google feed status shows 22 items not accepted. These are items that have gone through the google feeds without problem for months and I have not changed them recently. The problem I have is that they do not show up as missing required attributes, unique identifiers, or images. So how am I supposed to know why they were rejected?

Thanks but I am not selling magazines. I am selling shoes and that is not the message I received. The message I received says "22 products are disapproved from Google and are currently not listed in Google Product search." It goes on to say I am losing traffic and should fix all required attributes. The problem as I said in my original post is that non of the 22 have any missing required attributes as far as I can tell.

Not all my disapproved products are magazines. Some are textiles and previous to that were handbags.

That is the same message I received: "267 products are disapproved from Google and are currently not listed in Google Product Search. You are losing traffic! Please add all required attributes and make sure your products are fully compliant with Google's policies."

Mine don't have missing attributes, either.

You may be having a diff. problem. But it sounded like the problem other sellers have been having.

The message eventually goes away. It is a stock message. I have gotten them often, done nothing and they go away after a while.

Heels and hose I see a major problem in your titles that may cost you Google placement and sales. You show the same shoe with each listing a different size and color. That is fine but Google only reads the early part of the title and may not pick up the size differentiation as it is at the end of the title.

Then if someone comes to your store and is looking at the gallery view they do not see the size in the title and will have to click on every picture to get to their size. Starting with size or having it visible in the gallery view will eliminate that problem.

They don't have to click on each listing. If you run the cursor over the picture you get the full title.

Not all shoppers know that.
