I just did my first froogle upload and am wondering if I might draw some kind of penalty for having multiple similar items in my datafeed.
I don't think I am spamming because people always want the selection, but I also understand froogle might not interpret the information that way.
Any experiences with this anyone?
As long as you use the extended feeds to specify that each of these products are varying by size/color - that shouldn't be a problem - in fact, that's what they are for. Typically, they are used in shirts, shoes, hats etc...
Short answer: no problem
This approach has served us well from a customer service point of view, but from directory/search engine perspective I feel like I am being penalized. For instance, Froogle has placed my bestselling widget (a coat) in the men's apparel category, when it can be (and has been) custom fitted for women.
Here's my question: To get the most out of Froogle's service, should I consider displaying multiple versions of my widgets on my site, so that widget 'A' will appear in both the mens and womens category?
Thank you. I'm new at this.
