Froogle Proper Categorization

 11:34 pm on Mar 26, 2004 (gmt 0)

Does anyone know what the correct field should be for Froogle data feed? I recently finally got my feed approved but I picked a section with only a one word Category. Now i have submitted categories that go several subcategories deep. It looks like this:
I have the Arrows seperating the categories but I still have to use a dash . If my categories are not compatible with Froogle shoud can you leave out part of your category symbols or text to make it more basic for Froogle to Categorize or will they reject it? Its driving me crazy!

They want your categories, not theirs. Just put in what works for your website. You'll still be in the same category. Don't waste time fretting over it. Just do it.

To quote from the Froogle team*:

Tip one: Use your own category structure – we’ll map your products to Froogle.

We do it for you! We will manually map your store's product categories to our own hierarchy. All that we ask is that you include the same category information in your data feed as those on your product pages.


* from their newsletter.

So, as Scott says, just leave it to them.
