Google Merchant Center can now issue warnings for "inappropriate titles." This can happen for your Google Discover or Demand Gen ads within Google Merchant Center.

The requirements for these include:

  • Assets must meet the Discovery and Demand Gen product ads quality requirements
  • Assets can't contain obscene or offensive language, including but not limited to profanity and sexual innuendos
  • Assets can't use placeholder text, distasteful formatting such as nonsensical punctuation or capitalization or incomplete sentences.
  • Assets can't be longer than 10 words before a delimiter
  • Asserts can't contain excessive details like product codes, SKUs or part numbers that aren;'t part of the product name
