    There are several threads available on this forum, search for "Google Feed".

    Also here are links to knowledgebase :

    Just having a google base account is not enough anymore, you need to register for Google Merchant Center.

        are you submitting them yourself manually or via 3DCart?

        Login to your GMC and check the feed, it will tell you the reasons why it failed. You will see examples of failed products and reasons (Not all just the first 10 or so). If you can tell us what the error messages are perhaps we can guide you further.

          Google Base is what is used to list products in Google Products.

          From:
          http://www.google.com/base/newfeed?pli=1

          “Based on the relevance of your items, your items will be included on Google. Products for sale will be included in Google Product Search”

          We automatically list everything as a Product, so all of your items should be showing up in Google Products. Also, make sure you’re searching the correct Google Products feed for your region (US, UK, DE) as items are not cross listed at this time.

          However, I’ve seen several forum posts where other users of Google Base have had issues getting their products to show up in the searches.

          Here’s some requirements from the Google crew:

          As for Google Shopping, I think that has to do with tying your eBay or Google Checkout store with Base.http://imagicon.info/cat/5-6/vbulletin-smile.gif

            If your getting "0" inserted you have some major feed error(s). It's either not formatted correctly or your not giving it required information. Their enforcing required information pretty hard now.
            If you really need help PM me and we'll see what we can work out.

              Satnavcompany, neither of your links are working for me, perhaps for others?

                I recommend having David help you. He helped me- for a reasonable price. Think of the dollar amount of sales lost by not being listed in G merchant, and the lack of exposure to their search engine. I noticed the drop immediately.

                  You can also create a "test" feed. Just use a couple of products until it works right. The other suggestions in this thread are very good as well.

                    Hello.
                    Google Merchant / Base / Froogle is becoming more and more demanding.

                    We currently have the following heading in our feed-
                    brand
                    condition
                    description
                    id
                    image_link
                    link
                    mpn
                    price
                    title
                    product_type
                    weight
                    upc
                    availability

                    At times even that doesn't seem like enough and our listing are getting less and less clicks, but they are still free, for now anyways.

                    You can see all the requirements at the following url-

                    Hope this helps.
                    If you think Google is difficult, Bing Shopping will make you cry out of frustration... lol

                    Best regards,
                    papa

                      Looks like a normal feed to me. If it's recommended, supply it. When it becomes a requirement you don't have to care and run around pulling your hair out.
