Hi everyone.

Does an ecommerce site have to do anything to get products listed in a Google shopping search? Or does Google have a way of figuring out products for sale on its own?

Thanks!
Pam

You can slap the product details in a feed and upload it via Google Base wink1.gif

If you're using any of the popular shopping cart platforms available out there they probably already have a contribution/plug-in/addon that'll do the job of creating the feed for you lickity-split. You do need a Google account to upload it, but that's the easy part.

aha. neat, thank you!! thumbup1.gif

one more question: if i was going to do this for a client (really more than one), would i need to use their google account? or should i create a new google account specifically to do this?

doesn't one google account give you access to the whole slew of google crap (services, i mean services) like gmail, adwords, etc.? in that case i'd guess that I wouldn't use the client's account since that would give me access to too much stuff i don't want access to. is this right? How would you do it?

Thanks!
Pam

It's always best to use your client's own account. That way they get to continue to access everything if/when they are no longer your client.

Yup, each with their own account.

Heck, I have different accounts for each of my domains. And people wonder why I have this 18 page book of usernames and passwords. lol.gif

On the feed submission thingee, it's basically the same as when it was called Froogle. Problem is the darned thing has changed names too many times in recent years and each time the name changes they change a little something.

Another small benefit for each client having their own account is that certain stats don't seem to appear if you have each client under one "My Client Centre" Account.

Either that or I can't seem to find them! smile.gif

Yes you're right, I switched back to an individual client account due to the lack of info/data displayed when using an 'MCC' account.

Re Shopping Results by Google - to add to this thread:: Good info guys thanks - Question. Has anyone any experiance how to ensure a number of client site can be included in the Shopping Results by Google. EG - We host about 100 e-commerce sites and we would like to make sure all get a chance to be listed in the Shopping Results by Google SERP.

Many thanks - Paul
