Customizing the Google Base Feed
« on: April 23, 2008, 09:16:16 PM »
Love this tool but need to implement on bigger site for products.
I am wondering how to do I go about customizing the google base feed.
Using products. Specifically going after price - image - description. If there is an intuative way, I can follow your lead but showing me how to get started on this.

See sample supplied by google.

<item>
<title>Red wool sweater</title>

<g:brand>Acme</g:brand>
<g:color>red</g:color>
<g:condition>new</g:condition>
<g:department>apparel</g:department>
<description>Comfortable and soft, this sweater will keep you warm on those cold winter nights.</description>

Hello,

Google Base format is not currently  officially supported by Sitemap Generator. Since shopping carts are very different, it won't be easy to extract the price and other attributes automatically from the page.
