Hello All,

I am working on online portal having huge list of products.
I read that google base submission is helpful in promoting the products.
But manual submission for hundreds for products is a big task.
Is there any automated way for google submissions?

Please help.

Thanks

1) Data Feed

In this method, we have to prepare the XML or txt file containing the info of all the items. Then the XML or Txt file can be uploaded through the Google base dashboard or FTP. Through FTP, the file size must be less than 1 GB & through the Google base dashboard file size less than 20 MB.

2) Store Connector

This is an automated process & a free download. Those who are using the OS Commerce, Yahoo Shopping cart & EBay can use the Google base store connector to connect their online store to Google base. This eliminates the manual process & the Store connector automatically formats the data & uploads to Google base.

3) Google base API

Google Base data API uses the API protocol to create programs that interact with the Google Base servers. Using this we can query for items and insert, update, and delete items in Google Base automatically. This requires the programming applications, developer key & other tools. Used for large applications & where the items need to be updated regularly.
