Google Shopping Experience Scorecard Feature

Merchant Center is a powerful tool for getting sales from your products appearing on Google.

On February 22, 2022, Google started sending out emails that said that they have introduced a new feature for Google Merchants called Google Shopping Experience Scorecard.


If you haven't received this kind of email, do not worry. Log in to your Merchant Center and you should see a new section called “Shopping experience scorecard“.


This new feature has been rolled out silently by Google. No official announcement has yet happened on this. Similar to another update on that we covered here:

In the email, they have said that the new Shopping experience scorecard feature is to measure the experience of your business. The experience of 4 main features was highlighted:

  • Delivery Time
  • Shipping Cost
  • Return Cost
  • Return Window

These are the offline shipping metric calculations that are usually difficult to rate and find out for any business.

With the introduction of this feature, the users can now also rate on the above 4 features of a business they order from. The buyers can rate the shopping experience scorecard as “Excellent”, “Comparable” or “Opportunity”.

The three ratings can be put in simple terms as “3 stars”, “2 stars” and “1 star”. The “3 stars” rating will be evaluated and shown easily for the listed products. But the “2 stars” and “1 star” will be re-evaluated once in a set period of time for any improvements.

For more detailed guidelines, read the official google support documents here:

Google also has clearly said in the email to Merchants that these metrics ratings will improve the product rankings and a badge will be given by Google itself.

So this update is a very important one for Google Merchant Center users It is an opportunity to improve their shopping product rankings on Google.

But Google is also compassionate with Merchants that do not define these metrics in their listed products. It said that it will not penalize if you haven't defined or linked any of these metrics to your Merchant Center.

Since this is a new feature that has been introduced by Google and still needs a lot of awareness among the Merchant Center users so it is not penalizing any of them yet.

But we all know that Google is very sharp in ranking products based on reviews and ratings. So getting yourself these new Shopping experience metrics attached to your Merchant center is recommended.

  • nkap avatar nkap <@211319858258771968> hey, would you be able to share the website that you want guest posts on? I’m in touch with a few fintech businesses and can ask them whether they’d be interested in putting a post on your site.
  • ddev66 avatar ddev66 <@211319858258771968> it sure will work. Make sure to write that it’s free to post as guests. A lot of websites do not mention this and writers usually think it’s paid opportunity only.

    Keep us updated of how well this goes for your website.
  • soutaraku avatar soutaraku Thank you so much for the detailed guide. I'll see if I can put up the Guest Post page to start with! I hope my email gets bombarded in a good way haha
  • ddev66 avatar ddev66 You should start putting up a page called Guest Posting on your other website where you put articles, etc.. and put all the requirements there which you are looking for in the guest posts. Make sure to leave your email as well for easier contacts.

    Build up some links to this page. Because most of the writers are looking to write for high metrics website that have good DA, TF, etc...

    Once you have a page setup it will help you get attention from people who are searching on Google.

    Next you can start sending the URL of this page to people whom you think might be interested to write for your service on social networks like twitter, linkedin, etc.

    Also list this page URL on websites that have posts like free guest posts list in SaaS, free guest posts list in "your niche", etc. Something like this:

    These will get you enough traction to attract guest posts from various contributors over the time. Your email will be bombarded with emails following the above tips.
  • soutaraku avatar soutaraku I can translate guest post to Japanese and put it on our website to share stories from overseas. I thought it would be interesting for our readers and a good way for link building.
  • soutaraku avatar soutaraku It's not titled as contribute/guest posts page, but there's a website we put interview articles and such. We surely can put guest posts on that website.

  • naaz avatar naaz <@755307075625549854> Thank you for the detailed answer. Hope <@341197404302737408> finds the right solution for this.
  • nkap avatar nkap <@341197404302737408> Just these:

    You can try 3 things: (I suggest you try the 3rd option first)

    1. If there are any links in your coverage report that’s actually not from your domain/property, I’d recommend you use the Search Console’s removal tool to remove these from your property.

    2. If you’re using any page builders like elementor etc make sure you turn off search engine indexing for things like templates. You can find this in Yoast SEO settings. With this setting your templates and unnecessary pages won’t be indexed. Are you using elementor by any chance?

    3. It’s also possible that your site has been hacked. If random URLs are appearing in analytics and search console the first thing that you should do is check your .htaccess file to see if someone has put any rewrite rules.
