Google 'product_type' Attribute

Feb 11, 2012

We have enhanced the Yahoo Store to Google Product Search feeds to allow more configuration options for the 'product_type' attribute.

By default, this attribute is set to the Yahoo Path. Now, you can override this value with the data from any of the fields in your store catalog by simply specifying the catalog field name.

While it is not necessary to make any changes, a properly specified google_product_category and product_type may improve your results. For more information, see here:

Did you know that if your Google feed has a large number of items with errors, all your listings could be suspended by Google?

It is important to either exclude those items from the feed, or correct the errors. Our new Google Feed Validation report makes this easy. This will show you the errors and warnings in your feed, which if corrected, will boost the number and quality of your listings. See the link below for more information.
