How to change or update my Google product categories

What is the purpose of the product category? ๐Ÿ›๏ธ

The product category in Google Merchant Center is serious business! It plays a crucial role in classifying and boosting the visibility of your products in Google Shopping results. By choosing the right category for your product, you increase the chances of it appearing when users make relevant searches. It's downright essential for optimizing your visibility. ๐Ÿ‘€

How to change the product category ๐Ÿ”„

To change the category of one of your products, you have two main methods: directly in a product's file, or from the product list. We'll show you how:

From the product file

Edit Product Sheet Category

Simply scroll down to the very bottom of the product sheet to find the Category field. And guess what? This field is super cool! You can perform a keyword search directly in it to find the right category for your product. With all the categories listed at Google, it's a breeze. ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ

From product list

ร‰dition Multiple

Simply select one (or more) products, or check off all those you want to modify on the page. You'll then see the super Multiple Edit button appear in the table toolbar. This is your ticket to a pop-up window that will allow you to update a property for all selected products in one go! Practical, isn't it? ๐Ÿช„

You'll find the same field here as in the product data sheet. With all these tips in hand, it's impossible to categorize your products incorrectly! ๐Ÿš€๐Ÿ›๏ธ
