Google recently updated a new feature in google merchant centre called short title. This update allows you to describe your specific product to the point in a short and precise way because your users always look at the title and if it’s too long, it’s possible that they may not be interested in your particular ad.
Where Will The Short Title Attribute Be Shown?
