Automatically send data feed to Froogle

Sorry if this sounds like a stupid question, but does this run automatically every month without a cron job?  :blink:

 

 

No

I had a problem with my products not appearing on Froogle, despite good feeds. It seems that if you have two (or more) feeds (in my case, one in US$ to froogle.com and one in GBP to froogle.co.uk) and the "offer_Id" fields are the same in both feeds, it causes conflicts and will list only one of them.

 

On Froogle's advice I have modified the script to add a suffix of "US" to each "offer_id" for the US feed in order to distinguish it from the UK feed.

 

I am currently waiting to see if that was indeed the problem, and if this fixed it.

 

Cheers

Same for me.  A product listed for $899.00 which is regular price, but its on special for $799.00.  This is a big concern to me, because $899.00 is more than all the competition, whereas $799.00 is competitive.  I am using the latest version.  I uploaded my feed yesterday, and was accepted today, so it is current, too.

Calvin,

 

Some of my items on froogle are showing the sale prices, but then alot of them aren't. Any ideas on how I can fix this?

Mr. Calvin K,

 

Froogle Feeder works like a charm...can't say the same for the Froogle export piece of the Easy Populate contrib (that's another story).

 

I was wondering if you had any plans to update the Froogle Feeder contrib to work in conjuction with Chemo's "Ultimate SEO URLs v2.1c" contrib.

 

Your contrib and Chemo's contrib "FUNCTIONALY" work together but the product URLs fed to Froogle are the base/stock OSC URLs, instead of the SEO'ed URLs. For example:

 

http://www.your_website.com/product_info.php?products_id=65

 

Instead of:

 

http://www.your_website.com/something-about-marry-p-65.html

 

I ?THINK? a change to SEO URLs in the Froogle Feeder contrib might help Froogle SEO??? Please advise and thanks in advance!

 

Regards,

Siddall

I just got my 4th sale from Google/Froogle. Man I love this contribution!

 

I have been with Froogle for a long time and I have only had a couple sales from it. If I go to search for my product type I am several pages back. I am still trying to figure out how to optimize for Froogle. But, that is great to hear that it is working for you! If you have any advise I would be more than willing to hear it :-)

Uhhh, seems like we all are having the same problem, dude.  :rolleyes:

 

The special prices issues were resolved many releases ago without any reports of errors, except users of the SaleMaker Contribution. If you believe there is an error with sale prices, please provide a link to the product, and a link to the feed. Please run the feeder before hand to insure the data feed is up to date.


Most likely your question has been answered, please do a search first.

Possibly, if i get around to installing it myself and learning how it works. I've been really busy this whole year though. I still have to take care of a request to allow mutiple tax rates for different products. I am hoping to have that completed sometime in the next 2 weeks.

Thanks for the response....and thanks for the contrib :thumbsup: :thumbsup: !!! I completely understand...my suggestion is deffinately an "enhancement" and not a not a "requirement", at this time. (man...I sounded waaay too much like a consultant then :P )

 

Keep up the GREAT work!!! and thanks again! Keep us posted when this enhancement may make the cut.

 

Also, if you have any info or advice on Froogle rankings, I would be most interested! The Froogle SEARCH does not appear to have the same intricacies as the regular Google search engine???? It appear to be mostly keyword based...would you be able to confirm, deny, or elaborate this??? (I may have missed a simple Froogle link that explains this...sorry if so) Thanks again CalvinK!!!

thanks for this great contribution, just one small error that i need help with and I was hoping someone had the answer. I see someone else had this problem, but i have yet to find an answer. any help would be appreciated

 

 

upon accessing froogle.php

 

i get the following error

 

Warning: getimagesize(): Read error! in /customers/adweb322361/ftp/www.mrdeliveryman.com/public_html/catalog/admin/includes/classes/feed.php on line 185

 

 

 

 

 

I dont know why i am getting this error, it lists the error about 60-100 times on the admin screen and then displays product results below... The only thing I can think of is that some of my products do not have images and the contribution is stumbling upon this???

 

anyway to fix this?

 

thanks alot and thank you for this great contribution

i believe that error doesn't pertain to the Froogle Data Feeder, that's the other contribution for Froogle. try downloading Froogle Data Feeder 1.61 from the contributions, i believe it works for most people better.

I just installed the Froogle Data Feeder and am having some issues - I uncommented the FTP stuff, and now when I run it I get this error:

 

Fatal error: Call to undefined function: ftp_connect() in /web/disk1/virtual/sparkynet.com/accounts/megostore.com/htdocs/store/admin/froogle.php on line 313

 

The path is right, so I'm not sure what the problem is.

 

Also, (and this is unrelated) I FTP'ed manually to the Froogle FTP and uploaded my file, but the 111k file turned into a 0k file on their end. What's up with that?

 

Thanks for any and all help!

 

Thanks,

Also, does this look right:

 

$OutFile = "../feeds/megostore-froogle-upload.txt"; //"CHANGEME-full-path-to-file-with-777-dir-and-file-permissions.fr-outfile.txt";
$destination_file = "megostore-froogle-upload.txt";  //"CHANGEME-filename-to-upload-to-froogle.txt";
$source_file = $OutFile;
$imageURL = 'http://www.megostore.com/store/images/';
$productURL = 'http://www.megostore.com/store/product_info.php?products_id=';

Your destination filename doesn't look right to me. This needs to be the filename that Froogle assigned to you or your upload will fail.

 

The error message that you posted means that the FTP functions are not installed in PHP on your server. If you run your own server, you can install the FTP library and restart the server. If you are on a hosted server, I posted an alternative using cURL a few pages back in this thread. It should work if the cURL library is installed on your server. If you don't have either FTP or cURL you're probably going to have to continue to upload manually.

Jim -

 

That is the right filename. Froogle let me choose the filename, and that's what I picked.

 

On the other issue, thanks for the information - my server is colocated so I can get them to install it for me, I think. If not, I'll research the curl alternative you mentioned.

 

Thanks!

I forgot to ask - any ideas on the 0k file? I unchecked the "Passive Mode" box and tried again after the file disappeared, and got the same result.

 

Thanks,

I've seen the file disappear entirely shortly after an upload, but I've never seen a zero length file. That could just be an artifact of Google's virtual FTP server. You will probably have to ask them about it.
