ezfindit Posted February 1, 2007 Share Posted February 1, 2007 Hi everyone, I have been using the Froogle data feed for a long time to send data to Google Base. The http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,3876 Froogle contribution worked great. Yesterday I received this email from the Google Base Team informing me that my bulk load data files will no longer be accepted unless I include five additional attributes. Here's an excerpt from the email: "That's why we're asking all Froogle merchants to send us bulk uploads in the Google Base format, with five additional attributes (along with the basic ones you've submitted in the past). Because we think it's important to provide a consistent user experience, we will no longer list items that don't meet a minimal number of attributes by the end of February 2007. Please review the following bulk uploads - they do not currently meet the minimum attribute requirement." "You can review this attribute requirement page to learn about these new guidelines for general product attributes and specific attributes per product type. You can also learn how to submit your feed using Google Base here. We recommend that you include as many attributes as possible; the more information you provide, the better chance you'll have of matching users' "refinement" queries." Do any of the existing Google Base feeds contributions meet the additional attributes requirements that Google Base wants? I was considering using the http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,4513 contribution. Will it be sufficient for the Google Base folks? Has anyone else encountered this issue? What does the community recommend I should do? Thanks! Quote Chris Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
