Product images are crucial to creating a positive shopping experience for customers because they are the only way for them to see what they are getting. A poor quality image would steer a potential customer away from shopping; hence, you need images with high resolution.
Images speak to the product features such as pattern, size, and design, which allow shoppers to view the look and feel of a product. It must describe your products accurately, displaying all angles and edges.
It is important to mention that Google flags images with promotional text. Simply put, it means text on images that prevents potential shoppers from viewing the features of a product such as watermarks, logos etc.
What to avoid with product images
Text on the image
Promotional text is not allowed because plain product images are sufficient to inform customers. Utilize the product description section and make it simpler if you need to add more text.
The link must be readable by Google. Simply put, it won’t display if the link is not accessible. A URL should not contain blank spaces or other unreadable characters. Additionally, make sure you check to see if the URL is still active and hasn’t been changed or removed entirely..
A product image with a clear view of the product and no additional promotional elements is required for every item in shopping ads. Avoid using watermarks on your products, it is an easy way to get your products delisted.
When a product’s images are unavailable, avoid using generic ones. Image links that have no connection to the product will be flagged by Google.
Images play a significant part because they attract potential customers to the product. As previously mentioned, Google flags product images with a promotional overlay.
The best course of action is to avoid this because once this is violated, product images run the risk of being deactivated.
