Google intorduces a change to Google Merchant Center “to help ensure that you’re the only one submitting product listings for your site. You’ll now need to verify yourself as the owner of the site and then claim the URL in order to submit product listings for that site. This requires two separate steps: Verify yourself as site owner by following instructions at Google Webmaster Tools; Once your site is verified, sign in to your Google Merchant Center account and click “Claim this URL” link on your General Settings page. Existing Merchant Center users need to verify and claim their URLs by May 18th. After that, this requirement will become mandatory and product listings for non-verified or non-claimed URLs will be disapproved. New Merchant Center users will be prompted to do this when they begin the sign-up process,” explain Google.
