Ah, that is the question! On your listing page do you have a red exclamation mark next to the listing? Do you have a UPC code for this thing?

Sometimes there is no answer as to why some things show and others don't.

No red exclamation and I have a upc code. Its kinda frustrating because we can sell the new part for basically the price of a used that is also being advertised on there thanks for the help!

Are any of the products in your "My Products" category showing?
It may be that it won't show until you place it in another, more appropriate, category.

Your product current appears in the marketplace on this link ...
http://www.ecrater.com/p/24441321/3572463c1-bendix-ec-30-computer-801167

The first keyword, 3572463C1, shows 2 results in GS, but both are from eBay.

What does your Google Shopping Feed tab (left sidebar) say ?

Get in mind. The Google Shopping isn't free and they have some strange requirements.

Need confirmation. But I believe they require eCrater to send a single file for all the sellers in the marketplace. So if something doesn't fit. It is out of the list.

My recommendation. Focus more in promote your stuff than trying to understand or search items in the "pay to play" engine search of Google Shopping. Wink

In my opinion it is a waste of time to search for where and if your items show up in GS/Google organic/eCRATER marketplace unless you are a very new seller checking to be sure that you got your stuff right when listing for the first few times. If you then keep checking for where your stuff appears and how high up the ladder (search results) then you need to be doing it with an understanding of what you will do to improve their position if you find that they aren't prominent. Then do a check a couple of weeks later to see if whatever you did helped. Otherwise just checking is a pointless exercise in frustration. Not saying the OP did this, this is my thoughts in general as I see many sellers asking why their stuff isn't showing up. What do you plan to do if it isn't showing? Don't forget in Google organic/main search engine the results can be 100's of pages long. If you spend your time trying to find what page you land on and find it is page 151 then you have wasted oodles of time to find out that you need to fix your title/keywords in the title, etc.

I guess I'm just trying to say, have a plan for if you don't find your inventory showing like you would like and institute it for all listings. Don't forget also that potential buyers are not going to do a search using the same parameters that you did. Just because you find your item on page 151 doesn't mean that your customer will - none will bother looking that far. In general, if you aren't on the 3-4th page of a google search, then you aren't going to be found. One of the reasons that putting a long part number as the first item in your title makes no sense unless ALL potential buyers would have access to that number and search that way. Many people that might want a part or a product of some kind will not necessarily know the part number but they do know that the need a 3/16" widget for Ford trucks.

There are all sorts of ways to promote your products, but the first and BEST way is having a good Title and secondly a good description.

I would suggest you contact eCrater to see if they could add information on your items in GS. There may be a problem with the way the feed is working for the Global categories you've used. I checked several of your items and none of the items I checked were in GS.

Second, I would suggest you look at your store as a customer, switch to the list view and scan your titles. You have almost no titles that say what you are selling. A part number and the words fuel injector really doesn't give the search engines enough information to find your item. We have 100 characters available to use in our titles and the eCrater search is a title only search.

Did you contact eCrater directly as I suggested? They will probably be able to assist you in troubleshooting the problem.
