"Enabled, but do not syndicate" option in Yahoo Store
Under Promote > Search Engines in your Yahoo Store Manager, you will find links to two store export files, objinfo.xml and objinfo.xml, that contain all the data in your store catalog. (Legacy stores only have objinfo.xml.) Each store export file has three settings, Enabled, Enabled, but do not syndicate, and Disabled. This article explains the definition of each option.
- This means the store export files will not be available for download from your store. If someone tries to access the URLs, the server will return an error.
- This means the store export files will be available for download by anyone from your Yahoo Store. Furthermore, Yahoo will submit an automatic data feed to their partner search engine, PriceGrabber. (You would still need a paid PriceGrabber account to actually receive clicks.) We are not aware of them submitting to any other search engine automatically.
- Enabled, but do not syndicate
- This also means the store export files will be available for download by anyone from your Yahoo Store. However, Yahoo will not automatically submit the files to PriceGrabber.
We recommend our customers to use the Enabled, but do not syndicate setting because the automatic feed from Yahoo to Pricegrabber interferes with the PriceGrabber data feed submitted from our system. Yahoo's automatic feed to Pricegrabber is generally not reliable or customizable, so many merchants prefer to use our data feed service to submit to them.
