Google Merchant Center No Longer Disapproves Login Required & Restricted Purchase Free Listings

Google has updated its Google Merchant Center policy to no longer disapprove the login required and restricted purchase free listings. Google said instead, Google will mark them as active but may notice the products “have limited visibility on Google.”

Login Required

The “Login required” issue status means that customers visiting your store website need to provide account access information, such as entering a username and password or installing a program, before being able to view your products.

Restricted Purchase

The “Restricted purchase” issue status means that the ability to buy products on your store website is limited to certain customers as defined by location, device type, the information provided, or some other exclusive criteria. Fields like business information should be optional and content should be consistent and available to visitors in all locations.

Previously, Google Merchant Center accounts with the “Login required” or the “Restricted purchase” issue was automatically disapproved.

Now, free listings accounts with this issue status are still active, but their products have limited visibility on Google.

Please note that this policy change applies to free listings only.

Will Google Lens Come To Google Search Console Reporting

Published

Search By Image & Text

As Google Lens becomes more and more popular, SEOs are asking, will we be able to see what traffic we get from Google Lens in Google Search Console? The answer is that Google Search Console currently does not support showing Google Lens traffic or data and likely won’t in the foreseeable future.

John Mueller of Google was asked about this and he said on Twitter “Regarding Search Console, my feeling is it would need to be in a separate report, and Lens is probably still too new to be in a place where it won’t change significantly. John did add that this is “something Search Console can report on in the same way for the long term.”

Here are those tweets in context:

So I really wouldn’t expect much from Google Search Console and Google Lens here anytime soon but we can keep on asking.

Oh, by the way, Google Lens is just magical.
