OK I got my response from eCrater.

Now when I looked at items that were not appearing in the front pages of the category when they were newly listed, they had one main thing in common they had Google Ads (in your store pages).

So I asked eCrater if the products that qualify for Google Ads appearing get sent to the back of the category similar to products with stock images.

I got the answer that eCrater automatically rates products and:

Quote:
The rating can be lowered in the following cases:

- listing in the main categories instead of choosing the most appropriate one (there are some exceptions here)

- using stock photos

- no product photo or photo is too small

- store inactivity for a long period of time


These are pretty much the same reasons the Google Ads appear in your product pages. Read: http://community.ecrater.com/viewtopic.php?t=16812

So fixing those should fix the Google Ads. Hopefully it will also fix the location of your product (it's ranking). In the future pay more attention when listing. Do not list products with too small images (which a lot of your products, the ones that got kicked to the back of the category, had). And maybe select appropriate subcats like jazz, blues etc instead of leaving them in the music, records.

I wonder if that applies to search filters too? When I was checking on one of Chartco's problem items the other day they weren't showing on the category page when filtered by date either..

The rank thing applies to the search as well.

However the date filter should have worked. Confused

Hi,
I appreciate all the work you have had to do. I did not receive an e-mail as I usually do that you had sent a message and just happened to go to the site. I do not understand about google ads. Are you saying that if I list in sub global main music category that this will be better? I understand the no photo. What do you mean by stock photos? I use photos pretty much from the same place or actually make my own pics which are not as good. Can you be a little more explicit on the pics and google ads?

Thanks
C Confused

Hi again,

I was searching on my site and found google attributes which I guess i had. I have no idea why. I saw that I could cancel it so I did. Will that be of help. By the way I really do not have any background with computers except by a lot of trial and error as you can probably tell.

Thanks

See the image on this product: http://www.ecrater.com/product.php?pid=6280723 (that is a stock image)

See the image on this product: http://www.ecrater.com/product.php?pid=6280686 (it is too small. Smaller that 250x250 pixel in dimensions. The image here is 200x199 pixels)

That is why they both have Google Ads on them. You take your own picture and make sure they are larger that 250 pixel in length and with and upload those instead of the images you have now. That should fix it.

If it does not then select the correct music genre as your Global Subcategory.

Google Attributes have absolutely nothing to do with what we are discussing on this topic.

If you added them it will help you not hurt you. They are used for Google Product Search (also known as Google Shopping). It helps Google organize info and retreive yours with ease. Your items will be more likely to be found in Google Shopping searches if you have the Google Attributes entered. If you ask before you act it would have saved you time. Don't delete anymore. And add the ones you deleted back.
