I am really disappointed. I have been working on my new ecrater store today only to find huge competitor advertising on my pages. What is up with that? Is there any way to get rid of them? Sad

What are you talking about... I went into your store & there are no ads.

OK, I'm not crazy. They were there before I finished inserting my gmail and google information. When I clicked on a product, there was an ad above and below my description. I went back in now and they are gone. Weird!

You do have nonsense titles and descriptions so expect your store to be suspended any time now. Coming soon is not a description nor is Timex and a catalogue number a title. Better fix them or ads will be the least of your worries.

Yes you need to actually have a real description of the item, not "Coming Soon". If you don't have the items your selling then you should hide them in you store until you actually have them. Also one of the reason there are probably ads in your listings is because your pictures are so small, they must be at least a certain size(its listed somewhere on this forum)

If anyone else is seeing them on their pages, let me know.

Three of your products have pictures smaller than 250 x 250 pixels

Yes... your pics are too small. only the listings with small pics will have the ads. I have 1 older store that I need to redo all the pics. Just another "to-do" on my list.

Yes, I see the ads too,
only on my few listings that do not have pics.

Good reason to use nice big pics.

The top ads are caused by the photos or other problems in your listings. They can be gotten rid of by correcting the errors.

The bottom row of ads are yours forever. You are using a drop shipper so the ads are part of the listing. If you own the items and just using stock photos, submit receits showing you paid for them, and you can get the bottom ads removed.

Further to your titles. Man's Timex watch over and over will not impress Google and other search engines. They will think it is the same item and not pick it up. Add key words like gold tone, calendar watch, Roman numerals, etc to make them sound different.

Well, I don't use dropshippers. I also have a retail location so who do I submit receipts to?? I have also looked at other Ecrater sites and I see small pictures and no ads. I have emailed Ecrater and hopefully they will respond.
