Hi there, Everyone:
Our CATEGORY level page ranks #1 (and #2) for the KW:
"Name Brand Widgets"
In the organic SERPs Above the google product listings. But we aren't listed in the top PRODUCT listings.
Any clues why this might be? It's as if google is saying we are an authority on these name brand widgets so they make our CATEGORY page rank #1, but they have some problem with the individual products.
What is even more confusing is if you just search for the "name brand" (without the word "widgets") we are again ranked #1 and #2, AND google images displays images from our site.
One thing to note: We DON'T use the manufacturer's SKUs in our product feed, because we don't want to have to compete on price (and I feel if you include SKUs then you are basically going to have to compete on price in google products). We actually give the products whimsical names instead of using the product codes (this uniqueness MIGHT explain why we rank #1 and #2 at the category level for the brand name).
This might be in the wrong forum (I didn't know if there is a google products forum). I apologize if it is in the wrong forum.
