This app does not work correctly. It pulls the product title and description into the Google Merchant Centre but you can not alter the title or description for keywords. My products have specific brand names which my target audience would not use. When you manually upload products to the Google Merchant Centre you can tweak this.

Pretty pathetic app to be honest. I imagine it was written by the intern that has no understanding of work flow nor the need for an app to be dependable.

I can't seem to figure it out, and there is not good help. I know if I could learn it, it would simplify my world. I wish it were easier to use. I'm no computer programmer so make it easy please!

Great for small stores (very small stores). The app requires you to manually update all your products for google( via web form or csv upload). I have thousands of products.

Its a pretty easy fix. If the app had settings like if product type A then google product type. That's all it needs is some logic to tell the app if my product is this then that means it is that in google.

*DO NOT USE IF YOU HAVE MULTIPLE VARIANTS* *YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED*

maybe this app is great for some stores (or those who have few products) - but I have thousands of unique items and this app is the absolute worst for synching with google. You have to MANUALLY add each variant (color, gender, new/used, and size) - which you have to do via a CSV. the kicker is that once you do this - and upload the CSV there are so many glitches that you receive really descriptive errors such as "unknown can't be blank" or "domain not registered" - all of which changed once I edited the CSV (I followed the taxonomy of a successfully published item, and when I re-uploaded the file, even that specific item returned an error - and it remained unchanged)

If you joined shopify with inventory - this app will cause you more pain that any thing else. And sadly, its an app you need.

This app does the integration - but it is the most tedious thing I've ever used. Typically, every single product has to be updated to set the Google Product Category. This means you have to set every product manually. It takes forever. This could have been automated to flag groups of products with the desired category, which would have made the app pretty good.

The Good:
- Slick Shopify-worthy UI and workflow. A pleasure to use.

The Bad:
- Outdated. Based on past Product Feed Specification.

The Ugly
- Just plain wrong. App is not only outdated, but also based on some unfortunate misinterpretations of Google's Product Feed Specification. It makes me sad, only because Shopify's in-house features are usually so much better executed by comparison.

The Resolution:
Ultimately I was able to write my own feed generation tool, thanks to Shopify's amazingly excellent API.

Very time consuming and meant altering product setup to conform to the requirements. Good idea but a bit of a waste of time!

In addition to what everyone else is saying; who can even afford to advertise with google. I mean, talking about not worth it.
Good idea if it is properly implemented and service affordable to all or most.

I was pretty excited when I found this app, but my excitement was quickly changed.

I started to publish my products too Google and it returned in all my products showing an error.

I read that if you have multiple varients (multiple colors and sizes) this isn't a great app to use because it will mess up or just show one varient of your product. I have multiple styles of shirts, 6 sizes for each of my shirts and 10+ colors for each.

I've deleted the app and restarted everything from scratch. I've now been publishing my items to Google for over 2 hours, which seems way too long.

If it ends up publishing everything right, I'll change my 2 star review to a higher rank.
