I log into Google Merchant at least once a week to do updates and check for errors and today I logged in to find errors that had never been there before and since I had not make any changes to the code that creates my feed I went to check to see why it was showing the following error:
Apparently Google has changed a lot of the taxonomy of their categories.
Example, what used to be Vehicles & Parts > Automotive Parts is now Vehicles & Parts > Auto Parts

Saw that earlier this evening. Same warning messages after never having one for years. Why can't that leave well enough alone, or is this their way of weeding out people/companies who just mass produce product feeds. I know I have seen blatantly false information in their product searches, and I do not mean human error. Plain and simple misrepresentation.

Perhaps they should spend more time enforcing the new rules regarding shipping & tax inclusive prices rather than mess around with category names. Google is fast becoming a joke which seems to want nothing more than put the genuine business out of business!
