Google Merchant Centre Hidden Insights

Most PPCers set up Google Merchant Centre once and only occasionally tap in to check product diagnostics for disapprovals. That’s why we’re here to make you aware of all the useful insights you can get from the Google Merchant Centre. Ready? Let’s dive into each one.

1. Discover Top Brands/Products In Your Niche

Google has made it easy for you to discover new brands or products to sell based upon what is currently most popular in your area – an especially useful insight if you’re a wholesale or distribution business. You can identify how in demand products in different industries are, as well as week on week changes in popularity. Incorporating this as part of your strategy will ensure that you are always on top of what’s red hot in the industry, therefore driving more clicks and conversions to your site. Access this by going to growth in the left navigation menu and to the best sellers tab. 

2. Shopping Experience Scorecard

This feature gives you a score dependent on multiple factors that affect the overall shopper experience on your website. You should strive to be as efficient as possible to get the Top Quality Score Badge, as this rates you very highly as a competitive business in Google’s eyes.

In this tab, you are scored on shipping experience, return experience and other averages that will compare your score with competitors within your space. Google can tag certain areas with an ‘opportunity’ flag if the system notices any issues, giving you the opportunity to optimise this. Start asking yourself questions like what your current return policy is, what your competitor’s return policy is, and if there’s any wiggle room to bridge the gap between them.

3. Price Competitiveness

In the growth tab, you can view how competitive your prices are compared to current Google benchmark prices and make relevant changes based on these. Google Merchant Centre provides you with granular insights for different levels such as overall, categories, product types, and more. This gives you the chance to analyse any product skews and whether you can test lower pricing. It’s crucial to know where you stand compared to your competitors.

Furthermore, this feeds into Google Ads by moving the needle in the right direction to win the click auction! Consumers want a product that’s the best value for money, and price is typically the number one thing that determines clicks.
