Calling all Google Search Console Users! You’re in for another treat this week, as Google has made changes to Search Console.
Lately, Google has been making lots of updates about shopping tools and ads. This time they’ve given some love to Search Console by adding shopping and merchant features!
In the Google Search Console, a brand new shopping section has been added. “Google added a shopping tab that includes a quick way to create a Merchant Center account, access to your product snippets, merchant listings and shopping tab listings performance and debugging,” reports SEO Roundtable.
Take a look at the brand new shopping tab!
For those of you eager to put the update to use, you may have to wait a little while for it to be fully up and running. According to this blog post, the shopping tab and merchant center is mapped to rollout over the next couple of weeks.
Search Console Merchants will allow account holders to make their account using a simplified sign up process, avoiding site ownership re-verification. We love a good streamlined experience. Here’s what Google had to say about the process:
“This streamlined experience will get products quickly on the Shopping tab on Google and help merchants reach people looking for product.”
If you’re not seeing the new features in Search Console just yet, remember the rollout is scheduled over a few weeks so be patient!
