If you are collecting reviews from your customers, with the goal of displaying them in your PPC ads, here is a great way to test if they are being indexed properly: Take the following URL (http://www.google.com/shopping/seller?q=DOMAIN.COM) and replace the text at the end with your own website. For example, reviews for SmartFurniture.com could be accessed at “http://www.google.com/shopping/seller?q=smartfurniture.com”.
