Google To Update Shopping Policy Center In February 2016
Most advertisers won't be affected, but all should review to ensure compliance in the new year.
Google’s Shopping Policy Center will get an update come February 2016.
- Fewer and simpler Shopping policies.
- More transparency into why we have each policy.
- More insight into how a policy can affect your ads.
- Aligned across our advertising products.
Below is a screenshot of the current Google Shopping Policy Center:
Most advertisers won’t be affected by the changes, though Google suggests reading through the updated version to be sure you’ll remain in compliance.
Google overhauled the AdWords Policy Center in 2014 with a similar aim of simplicity. There were a few changes that tightened restrictions on weapons, fireworks and tobacco, but most advertisers saw no effect.
