Hello @edxdydx ,

We are AliReviews - an All-in-one review solution that helps collect, showcase, and manage impactful reviews.


Shopify and Google have different requirements and guidelines for product listings, which can sometimes result in confusion or conflicting information. In this case, one possibility is that Shopify is referring to Google Shopping, which is a platform that allows merchants to promote their products in Google search results and other Google services. While eBooks are generally not eligible for inclusion in Google Shopping, there are some exceptions. For example, Google allows eBooks that are part of a physical product bundle to be listed.


Another possibility is that Shopify is indicating that your eBook product is not optimized for search engines, while Google may not list eBooks directly, it does index the content of eBooks and can display search results that link to eBook pages on your website. To ensure that your eBook product is optimized for search engines, you can try the following:

  1. Use relevant keywords and meta descriptions
  2. Use alt tags for images: make sure that you use alt tags to describe the images
  3. Use structured data markup


Hope these can helps, please let us know if you need any further supports, we'd happy to assist.

Hello @edxdydx,

Good day! Gina from flareAI app - free sales machine here to assist.

Shopify may be referring to Google's search results, which can include various types of content beyond just web pages, such as images, videos, and products. While Google does not list eBooks specifically in its search results, it may still index and display product listings for eBooks on its Shopping tab or through its Google Books platform.

It's also possible that Shopify is referring to the fact that the product page for your eBook may not be appearing in Google's search results for certain relevant keywords. This could be due to a number of factors, such as the quality of the product page content, the competitiveness of the keywords, or the level of optimization for search engines.

In any case, it's important to keep in mind that while Google may not list eBooks directly in its search results, there are still ways to optimize your product page for visibility and reach potential customers through other channels, such as social media or email marketing.

Please don't hesitate to reach out if you require any additional assistance.
