Categorization doesn't bode well?
Magic and Novelties - Ouch

Msg#: 105 posted 5:41 pm on Jan 21, 2004 (gmt 0)

Just had to share this. I'm new to Froogle, and just got my first feed approved. One of the products is called "How to Contribute To Your Own Team's Health Helpcard".

How did they classify this? They put it in "Magic & Novelties"!

I wonder if this is an editorial comment <grin>.

Anyone know how to avoid this kind of amusing silliness?

You should be able to specify the categorization of items in your data feed using the "category" field. They ask for the categorization within your site; I'm not sure how they do it but the product feed instructions says "we will map your hierarchy to our hierarchy".

You might take a look at what you're specifying now and change it to something more in line with the Froogle category where your products belong.
