Bing Introduces Product Search and New Ad Formats: What it Means for Bing Ads Advertisers

On Friday, Aug 23 Rich Bowen on the Bing Ads Community posted an articel about the new Bing Product Search

Bing is introducing a new product search experience that will help consumers search less and do more. The new experience created by using consumer input and research, harnesses Bing’s index of 10’s of millions of individual products that have been organized by advanced machine learning to show relevant products directly in the main results page. This means that people searching for products will save time because they no longer need to navigate to a dedicated “shopping” experience to find what they’re looking for. Below we outline the steps you’ll need to take as an advertiser on Bing, to prepare for this change when it takes effect in the coming weeks.

Google Products: Invalid Unique Product Identifiers

We were looing in our merchant dashboard on Google Products and noticed an error for "Invalid Unique Product Identifiers". As you should already know Unique Product Identifiers is probably the most important field in your feed as far as getting your feed processed.

If there is the slightest mistake, error or any kind of issue with the Product Identifier field your feeds wont get processed  So naturally when we saw this we got very concerned.
