|The steps to set your Google Feed up |
1. On your item pages, fill in the Brand, Condition, and Product Type
fields for your Products. For more information on specifying your "Product Type"
2. On this page, make sure all your categories are selected, then click the
"Export & Save to Site" button (preferred method). That will create a product
listing at [http://shopdemo2.precisionwebhosting.com/shop/sitemap/googleproductfeed.txt
3. From the Google page at
http://www.google.com/intl/en_us/products/submit.html, click the "Start A
Data Feed" button. (You will not need to start a new data feed each time). That
will take you to the New data feed page.
4. On that New Data Feed page
type in your data feed name ( We suggest googleproductfeed.txt ), and then click
the Save Changes button.
5. Now you will be at their "Data feeds" page
which will list your feed(s). Under the "Upload schedule" column click the
"Create" link (This is easier than the manual upload or FTP methods). That will
pop up a small window where you can specify the frequency and url of your feed.
We suggest a weekly frequency. In the url field paste in the following url:
To save the information you just input click the "Schedule" button.
Now as you save an item you will want to occasionally select the option to
update your Google Product Search feed. Or come to this page after a large
number of updates and resave your feed file to the site.
to Site Option
This option allows you to pull your Google feed from a file saved on a webpage
(the url is given after you click save to site). Once you have saved a file to
this URL, you are able to use this URL in your Google Feed Settings. This is
the preferred method to use.
Save to FTP
This option allows you to FTP directly to your Google
Feed. Once you have entered the appropriate settings, you are able to connect
with your Google Feed.
Save to My Computer
This option allows you to pull your Google feed from a file saved on
you computer. Once you have saved a file to your desktop, you are able to use
this file in your Google Feed Settings.
