As you know, Manufacturer Center was launched in 2015 and created specifically for brands and original manufacturers to provide detailed and rich product information such as product titles, descriptions, images, and key features. It’s also designed to improve ad relevance for product queries. Manufacturer Center can help Google understand what a product is, make the match between a query and a product and then show relevant ads.
