Google Shopping Update: New Assortment Report for Retailers 1

If you are using Google Shopping, there is good news for you for the holiday season. The search giant has released an update to its Google Merchant Center in the form of the new Shopping Assortment Report for retailers. You will now be able to view the most popular products being searched on Google which are not within your feed. Now you can search based on product category and find out which products can drive more profits. In other words, you will now be able to identify products that should be in your feed. What can be better than knowing which products have greater demand?

Sell Right – Sell More

The new Assortment Report will evaluate data from the past 2 weeks and base the ranking on user clicks and several other factors. It will assess data from your targeted country. Now you can use the report to determine the products which are not already carrying in your stock.

How Does Assortment Report Work?

Assortment Report will display only those products for which you didn’t get clicks in the last 2 weeks. But it will not show the brands which are offered by a single merchant. Using the report is easy – just filter the information by selecting a product category. It will display only those categories for which you are receiving ad impressions. Explore the list of all the categories from this Google’s Product Taxonomy.
